Along with their return to the gaming and hardware world, Mad Catz just announced their new range of R.A.T. gaming mice.
The product line is designed for both adjustability and comfort, and encompasses sensor technology and advanced features like RGB lighting for several of the mice.
“Since previewing our new range of R.A.T. mice at CES 2018, gamers have responded with passion and enthusiasm for the return of the iconic range. We’ve been working hard to ensure that the products do justice to the incredible legacy of the R.A.T. name and are delighted to officially unveil the full range hitting stores later this year,” Selena Chang, Director of Sales and Operations at Mad Catz Global Limited, said.
