CES doesn't always have the breaking video game news we want but thanks to third-party companies like Mad Catz
there's no shortage of video game accessories. Some of the accessories they are showing off include Wii controllers, laptop mice, Nintendo DS accessories and Cyborg Gaming Lights with amBX Technology. I don't know exactly what amBX technology is but keep reading to get the lowdown on all the gadgets and peripherals Mad Catz has to offer.
Nintendo Wii Compatible Video Game Controllers
Mad Catz has their own Wii controllers for people who want something different from what Nintendo offers. The REACTOR Plus controller comes with built-in MotionPlus while still being the same size as a standard Wiimote.
Mobile Laptop Mouse
Looking for a new mouse to use while you're on the go? Mad Catz has the slim-line design and high-gloss mobilemouse. The mouse comes in three colors, black, white and red. It has been designed to be durable even in the most extreme business uses. The mobilemouse boasts a scroll ball that allows a full 360 degrees of movement. One AAA battery is all the mouse needs for up to six months of use. They are expected to ship this March.
Nintendo DS Accessories
Despite not yet being released, or even having a release date, Mad Catz has some accessories specifically for the Nintendo 3DS. They offer a travel bag that carries up to 21 games, a microsuede slipcase which offers a "fashionable solution" for traveling with your 3DS. If you really feel like spoiling your 3DS you can get it a stylus pack or a screen-protector pack.
Cyborg Gaming Lights with amBX Technology
Gaming Lights with amBX Technology are being released later this month for the PC. Cyborg is Mad Catz's professional gaming brand. amBX is short for "ambient experiences" and it offers "sensory surround" entertainment for a more immersive gaming experience through the use of lights and colors. The amBX hardware can be used for more than just games too with movies and music.
