Can't blame them for lack of innovation or originality at least.
[QUOTE=Big Bang;52024985]They had the best fightsticks, but that's such a niche market it's not enough to support the entire company.[/QUOTE] They really didn't, they just made the most. Hopefully Logitech buying that branch will revitalize Logitech's paltry market in that area

The customizable weight and grip went a long way to making it really comfortable to use for my giant hands.
I've owned a Mad Catz controller for the OG Xbox back in 2003 and it was on par if not better than the official controller.

[QUOTE=J!NX;52026289]indestructible thing breaks that's a bit contradicting[/QUOTE] I mean the shell of the mouse. The sensor got fucked because [B][U]I[/U][/B] messed it up with dirt and grime getting lodged in it and scratching the eye. Didn't just "die" from casual usage.
The end of an era. I remember 2 Mad Catz controllers specifically that I had back in the ps2 era. One was dark translucent red one that had really smooth feeling analog sticks and was a bit bulkier than a standard ps2 controller. After a few months, every time you plugged it in it forced everything to go left and slightly up. No matter what. Always left. The other one was black with whitish-grey rubber grips with tiny holes in them and this thing was AWESOME. It had fans in both the grips that you could switch on. They worked really well, I inherited my mom's sweaty palms when holding things for awhile, so it was fantastic and it lasted a long time as well. Strangely enough, I remember getting and using both of them while playing a lot of one specific game in particular: Robot Alchemic Drive.
The last Mad Catz product I ever owned was an SNES controller I got as a kid, and it was surprisingly way more comfortable than the real Nintendo product. :v: [sp]The select button eventually fell off, though...[/sp]
True shame. Their wireless controllers may have been shit but the memory cards that had more then 30 times the amount of storage on it then the official ones have lasted me so many years, hell I still have the GC x16 I got with my GameCube on Christmas morning '04.
I had a Mad Catz GameBoy Advanced charger that plugged right into the bottom of the system. It was actually great and the part that clipped into the GameBoy was shaped like the ends of a traditional controller and gave the system a much more comfortable feel. This is the only picture I could find of the product [img]https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRLPU_N3ab1t8AyhMUTj8U3J5kiqji6UKJXRg8ADoUEnOUli3vo[/img] Everything else I ever bought off them was garbage though.
I actually have a couple good products from Mad Catz. I have 2 8 MB PS2 memory cards that I got back in 2001. Still work perfectly. And an OG Xbox wireless controller. That thing is absolutely flawless. It feels almost as good as the official ones, has good range, and because it doesn't have vibration, the battery lasts forever. It was the one Mad Catz controller that my friends actually [i]wanted[/i]. I still use it if I don't need vibration. [img]http://thumbs.ebaystatic.com/images/g/5VEAAOSwTuJYtubF/s-l225.jpg[/img]
[QUOTE=SpartanXC9;52024821]I had a Mad Cats PS2 controller that had a button on it the disabled all inputs. I still have no idea why that was there.[/QUOTE] That button probably made it output as a DirectInput device instead of PS2 controler
partnering with harmonix to make the instruments for rock band 4 was a death sentence when the game has support for older peripherals. any rock band player worth their salt will attest to the poor quality of the mad catz instruments AND their horrible pricing, especially the drum set. you just can't win when a majority of people who bought the game already had instruments from when they played the older titles. it doesn't help that they way overestimated the demand for the game, and now their whole company is sunk. sad day

[QUOTE=gk99;52024968]Didn't this company pay to get out of a Guitar Hero controller partnership right before it got really popular so not only did they lose money to back out of the deal but they also missed out on the big bucks from making second player guitars? E: Google it, yep, $300,000 to not make money.[/QUOTE] They still got their name all over Rock Band
Since everyone's posting their shit [IMG]https://pbs-h2.twimg.com/media/C5c_I5FXMAEFBMO.jpg[/IMG] Buttons and stick are not the originals but sanwa parts I bought from an arcade shop. The purple ball top is also mine.
[QUOTE=Why485;52024859]No they don't, not anymore. They sold off Saitek to Logitech recently. While I don't have high hopes for future Saitek products, they probably won't get any worse with Logitech in charge.[/QUOTE] Well that's good, the QA on those sticks has been nothing short of a disaster, hopefully Logitech is gonna improve it in the future.
[QUOTE=fruxodaily;52026771]What's going on in this picture[/QUOTE] Gaming in the early 2000s.
[QUOTE=Daniel Smith;52024665]there was always that one kid with the shitty mad catz controller[/QUOTE] One that was translucent green and had random liquid inside of it for no particular reason.
I remember using the Xbox 360 controller designed by MadCatz. It wasn't that bad, the buttons were solid-ish and the triggers were fine. A major plus for me was the fact that it was wired so I could use it for my PC games without the hassle of purchasing a special wireless adapter. That being said, it didn't last that long. The cable wouldn't connect to my computer and Xbox 360 after five months of use. It wasn't as good as the official Xbox 360 controller or the variant with the twistable D-PAD, but it served its purpose as a cheap replacement controller at the time. I'm not surprised that Madcatz is going down a slippery slope. The quality of their products has always been all over the place. [IMG]http://www.cheatcc.com/imagesx360/mcgpp_00000.jpg[/IMG]

I got one of those after seeing them in PCGamer some ~8 years ago. Still using it to this day. I often forget how jacked up it looks because it feels natural to hold.
