New Mad Catz Controllers Work With (Almost) Any Gaming Device

Mad Catz has announced a new range of GameSmart hardware which is designed to work across pretty much any platform. These things will get you gaming on PC, Macs, tablets, phones, TVs — and even consoles.

The new slew of hardware includes the C.T.R.L.R. wireless gamepad, the R.A.T.M. wireless gaming house, a F.R.E.Q.M. mobile headset and the M.O.U.S.9 wireles mouse. Powered by Mad Catz’s new Bluetooth GameSmart technology, the new devices are designed to be as versatile as possible.

That definitely means they’ll work with PCs and Macs, but the company also claims they should work with tablets, phones and TVs — either natively or with the (included) Nano Dongle USB receiver. More than that, they claim that F.R.E.Q. headset will work with consoles. There’s no word on exactly which consoles yet, but those details will arrive at some point soon. What we do know is that they’ll come in a bewildering range of wild colours and be available early 2013. [Mad Catz]
