Everyone in the UK at the least has a Mad Catz memory. Whether it’s a third party controller with extra buttons that you used to ‘cheat’ when you played your mates at Medal of Honor or even something as quaint as a mousemat that’s special to you, those memories stick with you. Well, Mad Catz came roaring back like Lions last year, showcasing a wide range of innovative new merchandise. I got to try their E.S. PRO+ Gaming Earbuds and I’ve got to say I love them. They aren’t intrusive and offer great quality. I also got to see one of my favorite gaming products of all time, the new R.A.T Air Optical Gaming Mouse. Pure and utter genius. It comes with a special mousemat that plugs into your laptop/PC via USB. This charges the mouse at all times so there’s never a need for a battery. Simplicity perfected. There’s a lot of other techie advantages but those don’t bother me. I was blown away by that simple level of elegant innovation.
So Mad Catz is going to be celebrating their 30th birthday this year. This is obviously a huge milestone, it’s six more birthday than I’ve ever had. Selena Chang, Director of Sales and Operations for Mad Catz Global Limited commented:
“It’s amazing and humbling to believe that Mad Catz has been serving the community for 30 years and we’d like to think that Mad Catz will be leading innovation and surprising gamers for many decades to come. Our R.A.T. mice remain some of the most popular products Mad Catz has ever produced, and we felt it only fitting to deliver a treat for the fans in celebration of our very special birthday. Alongside the Limited-Edition gaming mice, Mad Catz have a full year of surprises in store, including promotions, contests and so much more. We urge gamers to keep an eye on our social media channels for up-to-date information.”
