Ouya turned more than a few heads when its self-titled Android game console took Kickstarter by storm and raised nearly $8.6 in funding (plus a lot more from investors), which is well above the $950,000 Ouya's developers originally sought. Since then, there's been rising interest in the Android console market, a market that doesn't even truly exist just yet, but soon will. Ouya will have competitors, one of them being Mad Catz. Yes, that Mad Catz, the one that's known for making peripherals. While announcing financial results for the company's fiscal fourth quarter and full year ended March 31,... Read more...
CES doesn’t officially start until January 8, but many of the pre-show festivities have begun.

There are game peripheral companies, and then there's Mad Catz. The company's Cyborg line has grown stranger by the year, and has drawn the eyes of many a user. It's not all for negative reasons, though. The new Cyborg R.A.T. Albino Gaming Mouse is definitely one of the slicker, wilder looking mice to surface this year, and it looks like a dream come true for hardcore gamers who love to tweak their input devices. The new futuristic-looking mouse ships with a 6400DPI sensor, improved tracking capabilities and a matte Albino white finish. There's an adjustable thumb rest, adjustable height, a thumb...

Third-party peripherals have come a long, long way. A few years ago, third-party accessories were generally frowned upon, with first-party accessories being far superior. But today, the quality of third-party peripherals has improved tremendously. Some are even more comfortable than first-party alternatives! Mad Catz is also a company on the rise. They've been branching out in recent years, improving and growing their portfolio, particularly when it comes to supporting Microsoft's Xbox 360. This week, the company landed a licensing deal with Microsoft to produce a licensed, co-branded wireless... Read more...
Mad Catz has been a prevailing name in the console accessory market for years, offering up affordable third-party solutions (mostly controllers and gamepads) for Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and all the console generations before it.

Originally announced at CES and CeBIT this year, the Cyborg R.A.T. 7 Gaming Mouse is a "twin-eye" device with a 5600DPI sensor, ergonomic grip, adjustable... Read more...
