Problems for Slightly Mad Studios, a company that began this year announced its Mad Box console. However, the platform will not be called this way because the company cannot use the trademark, already registered.
The Project CARS team tried to deposit the MadBox and Mad Box brands already on January 3rd, but the EUIPO response (European patent office) was negative, as a company with the same name already exists. Mad Box Studio is a French company that deals with games for mobile platforms, the company has applied to register the name at the end of March and Slightly Mad withdrew its request on April 5th, so the console is destined to change its name commercial.
It must be said that after a presentation with great fanfare nothing was known about this console and the revelations of PlayStation 5 and Google Stadia relegated Mad Box to the shadows … We’ll see if Slightly Mad will reveal new details in the coming months, the launch seems to be scheduled not before 2021 or 2022, so there is time to learn more.
