At the start of the year gamers were pleasantly surprised to hear about an upcoming console, which will boast some of the most competitive specs on the market.
The Mad Box is set to rival the likes of the PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
The new console is being developed by Slightly Mad Studios, known for the Project CARS series.
The British video game company also worked on Need for Speed: Shift.
Gamers were left on the edge of their seats when the CEO of Slightly Mad Studios, Ian Bell, teased: “The Mad Box is coming”.
Since then small bits of information has been trickling out, and most recently Bell shared what the controller could potentially look like.
He treated his followers to the “first look at the Mad Box controller concept”, attaching five images.
The black controller with blue lights goes perfectly with the chosen console design, which he shared on January 11.
“I have a cunning plan. Paid online? Free online? How about we pay you to be online?”

Slightly Mad Studios listened to their supporters’ advice when it came to picking a design.
Bell tweeted: “The public have spoken and we’ve listened. This is the design we’re going with. It might be slightly amended over time.”
The first console slightly resembled an “M” shaped PC tower, before choosing a flat, sleek design.
Bell recently aired his thoughts about the possibility of players being paid to play online.
He explained how this would work: “I have a cunning plan. Paid online? Free online? How about we pay you to be online?
“Every valid hour spent earning credits that translate into real world money for you.
“Yes it will mean advertisements, but YouTube is scraping along. Just a thought.”
However, Bell quickly added this would not “interfere with gameplay”.
Last week we compiled all the reasons why you should be excited about the Mad Box.
Bell did most of the work himself on his Twitter, describing it as “the most powerful console ever built”.
He went on: “It’s literally ‘Mad’.
“You want 4k, you want VR at 60FPS? You want a full engine for free to develop your games on it? You have it.
However, later he corrected this to: “We’re going 90 per eye, 180 FPS internally. My CTO has just called me and confirmed that’s what we’ll deliver.”
