Mad Catz today launched an extensive line of products for Microsoft Xbox 360.

"In keeping with our goal to create the industry's highest quality and highest value products, we have developed an extensive line of accessories for Xbox 360.

"The Xbox is off to a great start, and we believe this same excitement will be evident as other next generation consoles launch. The new Mad Catz lineup of accessories reinforces our commitment to simultaneously serve the current and next generation, and introduce margin-driving revenue streams that diversify our offerings."

Mad Catz Xbox 360 GamePads

Mad Catz is launching its premium Game Pad Pro. The 360 Game Pads are the most technologically advanced controllers Mad Catz has produced to date. Every aspect of the controller has extensive design, feature and engineering enhancements to optimize gaming performance. The game pads, both PC and Windows compatible, mark the debut of Mad Catz' unique analog stick design, which has allowed for a slimmer, more ergonomic controller. A MicroCON version of the premium pad and a standard game pad will be available to consumers shortly after the console launch.
