I think I've finally discovered the sinister plot underlying Mad Catz's visually and functionally striking line of Cyborg gaming products: They're preparing to build an actual cyborg, and the newly-announced F.R.E.Q. 5 Pro Gaming Headset is the ears.
Mad Catz already has the eyes, the hands, the legs, and the neural interface (fudging it a bit). Now they're preparing to unleash the F.R.E.Q. 5 Stereo Gaming Headset, all the better to hear you with, my dear.
