Could a mechanical rat beat up a gaming mouse? If you think so, then perhaps you'll want to employ the services of Mad Catz's upcoming line of Cyborg R.A.T. gaming mice.

"Cyborg is best known for ergonomic and fully adjustable flight sticks, gaming mice and keyboards. The new mouse range incorporates the same market leading design principles and applies them to gaming mice. For the first time ever on a mouse, the key points of contact between the gamer's hand and the mouse are fully adjustable allowing it to be customized for any grip preference" commented, Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz.

    Looks like a turbo charged mouse with a jet engine. Awesome!

    Looks cool, but strikes me as something that might be trying to do too much. I guess we'll find out soon enough...

    i gotta admit, that thing looks pretty sweet. A lot like my G9, but, by the sounds of it, it wouldnt feel so tiny in my hand... I dont really like that thumbrest though, I need to be able to rest my thumb and little finger on the mousepad in order to be at my deadliest in FPS.

    Mad Catz tho? really? I'd feel more comfortable it it was being released by a different, more reputable brand that the ppl that make those crappy 3rd party console controllers...

    100 bucks for usb, 130 for wireless? No thanks, I'll stick with better mice at half the price.

    I had no idea that MadCatz bought Saitek. I'm guessing that's what happened as the link for PC products on MadCatz site links to Saitek's site. I hope MadCatz leaves Saitek alone cause I've always known MadCatz to suck yet Saitek's joysticks have always been pretty good.

    Still no way in hell they'll get me to stray from Logitech keyboards and mice though. You'll have to pry my G11 and MX518 from my cold dead hands.

    I remember using a pair of Mad Catz controllers for the Gamecube... all were unusable within a week, they malfunctioned from the very beginning.

    I hope so too. Have a nice joystick and PC controller from saitek.
    Bought 2 madcatz controllers, and both were junk.

    No way in hell I'd even use this damned thing.
    If I got one, I'd sell it and buy a second G5...

    How much does that weigh? I like a mouse I can move easily and finely and I'm no superman.
