Last year peripheral maker Mad Catz closed its doors but after a short break in business, the company is back. This time the company is under new management and working with a whole new lineup of products. Mad Catz even put out a cheeky little promo trailer to announce their return to the market.
CES is their focus and they will be showing off a new products including new R.A.T. mice, S.T.R.I.K.E. keyboards, F.R.E.Q. gaming headsets and G.L.I.D.E. gaming surface.
There’s a new R.A.T. AIR mouse which will come with a “stare of the art” wireless power setup to eliminate the need for battery packs. This new system relies on a specialized surface that transfers power to the unit itself. A USB cable is included for those wanting to use their own surface. The S.T.R.I.K.E.4 is their new mechanical keyboard, and the F.R.E.Q4 is the new gaming headset.
“We couldn’t be more excited than to begin 2018 by announcing the return of Mad Catz to the global gaming arena. Mad Catz has been a permanent fixture in gaming for almost three decades and we firmly believe it’s best days lie ahead,” said Selena Chang, Director of Sales and Operations. “Through listening to gamers worldwide, we plan to once again forge a path of innovation in the gaming hardware community, and we’re already working on delivering products which we believe will enhance gamers’ abilities and do justice to the Mad Catz name. We can’t wait to unveil a little more at CES 2018 and in the months to come.”
