  • Mad Catz returns with a new owner, new ideas and new products

"Mad Catz has been a permanent fixture in gaming for nearly three decades and we firmly believe it's best days lie ahead", said Selena Chang, Director of Sales and Operations for Mad Catz Global Limited in a release. Verrey says Mad Catz's return is thanks to a Chinese holding company that purchased its assets and branding.

Mad Catz have today unveiled that they're back after becoming bankrupt in April 2017, and they've got their claws out with new management and new products as we enter 2018.

Although the full list of products has not been revealed, Mad Catz confirmed that it would be previewing its first line of gaming peripherals at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES). Let's hope these new products live up to Mad Catz new "come back stronger than ever" mentality. Audio specs pan out to a 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range, 32 ohm impedance and 110 dB sensitivity and Mad Catz has ditched the 3.5 mm audio jack in favor of USB connection.

Mad Catz ran into problems when it partnered with Harmonix to co-publish Rock Band 4 as well as make the peripheral instruments, so when RB4 didn't have the legs it was expected too, Mad Catz was left in trouble and with a bunch of unsold drumkits. There's a wireless power system involved-a growing trend, it seems, in the mouse world. Hopefully this means we will see a few more mad-cat mice designs in the near-future, and ideally the new bosses can lead the company down some new and intriguing avenues for their product design. What is less certain is how this new incarnation of Mad Catz will fare. Lastly, the F.R.E.Q. 4 gaming headset implements high-quality 40mm neodymium drivers and includes a metal plated. "Mad Catz has been a permanent fixture in gaming for nearly three decades and we firmly believe its best days lie ahead", Mad Catz director of sales and operations Selena Chang said.

They still look a little like Christian Bale's "tumbler" Batmobile, built out of lego and laser pens, then. Mad Catz is of course best known for its range of R.A.T gaming mice, arcade FightSticks and other peripherals.
