  • New 360 Racing Wheel From Mad Catz

    Mad Catz is dropping mad gearz all over Gamescom. Unfortunately, they haven’t sent us mad picz, so some details escape us. Basically, though, you’re looking at a nice racing wheel for the Xbox 360 with the usual fixins: battery power, pedals, buttons, the works. Update: got another picture for you. Read More

  • Mad Catz rocks out with new Rock Band 3 accessories

    With the release of Rock Band 3, there’s the inevitable flood of third party peripherals (many better quality then the ones that come with the game). Mad Catz announced their latest line of products, including a wireless keyboard, a Fender Mustang Pro controller, and a MIDI adapter that’ll let a musician use their real keyboard to play the Rock Band 3 game.

  • Phew: Mad Catz will make 'controllers and accessories' for Call of Duty: Black Ops

    Golly gee, Mad Catz will once again make “accessories” for a Call of Duty game. That game, of course, if Call of Duty: Black Ops, the hundredth game in the beaten-to-death series. Read More

  • Like flying games? Mad Catz launches the Cyborg F.L.Y. flight stick

    Ever since the days of playing F-15 Eagle on my old Atari 800xl, I’ve had a weakness for flight games. Now days of course there aren’t that many of them, but I can still appreciate the need for a good flight stick. Mad Catz just announced the release of the F.L.Y.9 wireless flight stick. I think I want one. Read More

  • Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T. is the ugliest mouse known to man

    Mad Catz isn’t actually known for being subtle, but this is a bit much even for them. It’s the new Cyborg R.A.T. – and it’s a hot mess of wasteland design gone wrong. Read More

  • Special edition Street Fighter IV arcade sticks at San Diego Comic Con

    To celebrate the awesomeness that is the San Diego Comic Con, which makes the New York Comic Con look like single-A baseball, Mad Catz will be handing out special edition Street Fighter IV arcade sticks to attendees. Well, “handing out,” for a price. It’s$179.99, so it’s not like you’re getting a Comic Con discount. Read More

  • Mad Catz scores rights to wireless Xbox 360 controllers

    It never really dawned on me that Microsoft had a stranglehold on production of wireless Xbox 360 controllers. It just wasn’t something that I thought about when plunking down in front of the TV to play some video games. In any case, Mad Catz has scored the exclusive global rights to produce “Xbox 360-branded wireless specialty videogame controllers.” That’s great and… Read More

  • First Street Fighter IV sales numbers, live streams all over the place

    It goes without saying that most of us here at CG are looking forward to Street Fighter IV‘s release tomorrow. The game has been available for a few days in Japan, and rough first-day sales numbers have trickled out. Between the two versions, Capcom has sold (remember, this is only for one day) 116,000 copies of the game. There’s reports that stores there are having trouble keeping… Read More

  • PS3 Street Fighter IV FightSticks from Mad Catz up for pre-order

    The following two joysticks from Mad Catz won’t be shipping until February 20 of 2009, but that shouldn’t stop you from pre-ordering three months in advance. The $70 FightStick should be sufficient for all your Hadouken needs, but what sort of fanboy would you be if you didn’t get the Tournament Edition (pictured above) for $150? via Max Console Read More

  • Mad Catz: Bass guitar and portable drum set for Wii

    Everyone’s favorite third-party peripheral company, Mad Catz, is getting in on the Rock Band craze. Early next year, the company will begin producing a bass guitar and a “portable percussion set” for the Wii version of the Rock Band franchise. I’m not sure how well a bass guitar would go over (not saying it won’t) but the idea of some sort of foldable… Read More

  • Wireless Rock Band gear to be made by Mad Catz

    I can’t say that accessories manufacturer Mad Catz has the best track record – their third-party controllers are, as often as not, chintzy and only minimally functional. However, they could be the cheap bass and drums you can actually afford if you want to have a Rock Band get-together with other poor people. Or, if your friends are imaginary, those weak third-party instruments… Read More
