There's Pretty Much No Reason To Buy An Ouya Anymore

First came the Ouya Android microconsole. Then came Mad Catz's M.O.J.O. Android microconsole. Today Mad Catz announces the M.O.J.O. microconsole will be playing host to Ouya content. I am so confused. » 3/06/14 9:19am 3/06/14 9:19am

Rad Combo: Buy An Arcade Stick + Donate To Charity

The Platinum Capcom Cup Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2 isn't just a mouthful, it's one of the prettiest - and most exclusive - video game controllers around. The only people on Earth who will ever use one are the top placers at this year's Capcom Cup fighting game tournament. Oh, and maybe you, if you donate to … » 12/20/13 2:00am 12/20/13 2:00am

The Tiniest Gaming Keyboard You Ever Did See

Who says a tablet-sized keyboard has to be rectangular, lifeless, and look like the inside of a leather case? Not Mad Catz. I reckon if they did say that it could potentially mess with the sales of the S.T.R.I.K.E.M mobile keyboard, coming this holiday season to a hand near you. » 10/29/13 5:00pm 10/29/13 5:00pm

Mad Catz's Ouya-Killer Priced, Dated And Potentially Deadly

At $249.99, Mad Catz's M.O.J.O. Android micro-console will cost two and a half times more than the Ouya when it's released December 10. It'll also be six times as powerful with the potential to stream games from your PC to your television set, so I'd say it evens out. » 10/08/13 7:30pm 10/08/13 7:30pm

Here's Your Xbox One Wireless Racing Wheel, Forza Fans

The launch of the Xbox One in November brings with it Forza Motorsports 5, and as nice as the new game pad's haptic feedback is, racing fans are going to need something meatier. Something with force feedback and foot pedals and genuine suede leather. Oh hi there, Mad Catz Force Feedback Racing Wheel for the Xbox One. » 8/21/13 5:00pm 8/21/13 5:00pm

Street Fighter X Sanrio Arcade Fightstick Pro: The Kotaku Review

How many times can one website review the same fighting game controller with different graphics on it? Let's see, one, two, three... three times. There is nothing else to say about the hardware itself. It's lovely, certainly worth the $159.99 asking price to a hardcore PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 fighting game player. » 2/25/13 9:20am 2/25/13 9:20am

Mad Catz's Mobile Hardware is Just as Pretty as Its PC Peripherals

As promised last week, Mad Catz has drawn back the curtain on its new line of mobile peripherals, each (well, not the headset) featuring its fancy GameSmart technology to ensure compatibility across a wide range of mobile devices. If it supports Bluetooth Smart (and it should), your mobile jam could be enhanced by a… » 1/07/13 8:30am 1/07/13 8:30am

Mad Catz Plans to Create Mobile Gaming Controllers. And Mice. And…

You Can Voice-Chat On the Wii U While Gaming, But There's a Catch…

The Wii U will support in-game voice chat, but you'll be forgiven if you're not sure exactly how that will work. Nintendo hasn't shown an official headset for the Wii U and the Wii U's Pro Controller—the one that looks a lot like an Xbox 360 controller—doesn't even have a port to connect one. » 10/18/12 11:15am 10/18/12 11:15am

Assembling the Most Insane Gaming Keyboard I've Ever Typed On

I've gone through dozens of gaming keyboards during my decades of PC gaming, from generic off-white Wal-Mart specials to elaborate, fully-programmable, back-lit monstrosities. The Cyborg S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 from Mad Catz is the first gaming keyboard I've had to screw together before using. » 9/07/12 2:00pm 9/07/12 2:00pm

Now Mad Catz is Making a Massively Multiplayer Combat Flight Simulator

Not content to merely dabble in the more pedestrian flying video game market, the once peripheral-centric Mad Catz lifts its ambitious eyes to the MMO skies with Combat Pilot, a title that combines realistic flight simulation with multiplayer military aviation. It's actually more exciting than it sounds. » 7/24/12 8:30pm 7/24/12 8:30pm

This World War II Dogfighter Barely Feels Like a Mad Catz Game Anymore

When peripheral maker Mad Catz first announced it was going into the game publishing business, I laughed. When I got my first look last year at what was then called War Wings: Hell Catz, I laughed harder. Last week I got a chance to play the newly-renamed Damage Inc.: Pacific Squadron WWII, I'm not laughing nearly as… » 6/12/12 9:30pm 6/12/12 9:30pm
