Mad Catz New Gaming Mice Are Cyborg R.A.T.s

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.

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

    What happens when you get that thing up to 88?

    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...

    Why can't Mad Catz just keep their cheap arsed products... I have never bought or used anything I liked, manufactured by them.
  • CR0W M@GN3T
    So...could I like adjust it so I could play with my foot or something?
  • christop
    That looks crazy cool....

    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.
