LAS VEGAS, NV — Back in March of 2017, Mad Catz, the manufacturer of some of the most extravagant and daring peripherals on the market filed for bankruptcy. In an effort to alleviate the financial troubles, back in September 2016, Mad Catz sold their Saitek brand to peripheral giants Logitech with the hopes of being able to save the company from financial collapse. Unfortunately, on the 30th of March 2017, Mad Catz ceased trading and after filing for relief under Chapter 7 of the U.S Bankruptcy code, this was the last time people thought they would see them.
Fast forward to the 4th January this year (2018), Mad Catz or as they are now known, Mad Catz Global Limited officially announced they were back and that they would be attending CES 2018 in Las Vegas to showcase a new range of gaming related peripherals under new ownership by a group in China. This group aren’t strangers to the Mad Catz brand and have extensive knowledge of the company’s product range, mainly due to the fact that some of groups members worked in the factory the old range of peripherals were produced.
At CES, Mad Catz will unveil and preview a brand-new refresh of one of their most iconic products, the R.A.T mouse, with wireless capabilities, is aptly named the R.A.T.AIR. The concept is that this mouse won’t need an integrated battery pack to operate, but will instead draw power from a wireless activation gaming surface which will be included in the retail pack. It has been noted that a USB cable will be included for those wishing to use their own desktop surfaces and mouse mats. The R.A.T.AIR will sport a PIXART PMW3360 optical sensor with a maximum DPI of up to 12000.
