MAD CATZ, a long-established gaming device manufacturer, revived like a phoenix in 2018 and released a new gamepad and an acetate controller in 2020.
How good are the controllers after the revival? Some may wonder, "How are the new controllers coming along?
Nash Tajima purchased the EGO Arcade Stick and reviewed it on Saiga NAK, and was very satisfied with its excellent feel and quietness.
But there are many PC gamers who use a mouse and keyboard to play games instead of a gamepad or a controller like an Ace-Con, right?
Of course, MAD CATZ is not to be outdone.
We are proud to announce our new wireless gaming mouse "R.A.T. DWS " with a response time of less than 0.2ms!
