MAD CATZ has done it again and hit us with some awesome news, Celebrating their 30th birthday and along with it some sweet new limited edition gear.
Fittingly we have 2 limited edition R.A.T mice (am i the only one that still loves that their mouse is called a R.A.T).
The first being the R.A.T. 8+, with is amazing wrap sheet of specs including both a Pixart PMW 3389 optical sensor and my personal favourite, 3 stage chameleon RGB because I am just that kind of guy.
It will now also get a new metallic design to and premium collectors packaging.
Next up we have the R.A.T. Pro X3, the single most advanced mouse MAD CATZ make, and if it wasn’t enough that this amazing bit of kit is completely customisable with loads of interchangeable parts like feet, pinkie rests and palm rests just to name a few.
it will also be getting a full metalic design and premium packaging.
Just the idea of having one of only 1000 made of each should be enough to make you watch MAD CATZ social media like a hawk, but if your a bit of box hoarder like me and love to display all the packaging, the premium collectors packaging should be a win win.
Now if you want to read the full press release its just below and if you want to go check out all the great gear MAD CATZ has to off head over to: http://www.madcatz.com/
