San Diego – March 21, 2012 – Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (“Mad Catz”) (AMEX/TSX: MCZ) announced today the first in a range of new MLG Pro Circuit Controller accessories, available for the first time at the MLG Pro Circuit Winter Championships, taking place in Columbus, Ohio from March 23 through March 25, 2012.
Fully compatible with both the Xbox 360® and the PlayStation®3 models of the critically acclaimed MLG Pro Circuit Controller, the new range of accessories allows gamers to customize both appearance and functionality of the controller, creating a unique gaming experience tailored to the gamers’ individual preferences.
We stopped by the Sennheiser booth to check out their new gaming headphones. In the video, they showed us the PC360, an open air headphone, with noise canceling, and includes a noise canceling microphone. It is in stores now at $249. We also checked out the Xbox 360 version of the headset as well, the X320. It’s only a wired gaming headset, no wireless version for 2012. It also features noise canceling for the headset and mic. The sound quality is definitely awesome and these headsets are both worth the value.
Mad Catz has made gaming accessories for years. Although recently, MadCatz has seriously committed to expanding their product line. With the Street Fighter X Tekken VS Arcade Stick, Xbox 360 Primer Headset, Cyborg F.R.E.Q. Headset, and the MLG Pro Gaming Circuit controller. But Mad Catz’s new products aren’t clones of what’s already available, each product offers something new. For instance, the Street Fighter X Tekken VS Arcade Stick is the exact dimensions of the Japanese arcade counterpart with better build quality, the Xbox 360 Primer Headset is officially licensed and runs at 5.8GHz, Cyborg F.R.E.Q. has a detachable mic and a swappable USB or 3.5mm adapter, so it is usable on any device. Finally, the MLG Pro Gaming Circuit Controller allows you to swap the thumbsticks, and d-pad into any configuration you want. Alex from Mad Catz provides us with a thorough walkthrough of the above products.
Gears of War is one of the biggest franchises to be created during the current (7th) console generation. The first Gears of War launched back in 2006, the second in 2008, and the third in 2011. What started off as a simple war between humans and locusts, has spawned a trilogy of intense third person cover based gameplay.
The third installment of the Gears of War series picks up quite some time after the second. Epic has included a video to fill in the time gap between the two games, while also getting any completely new players caught up to speed. While that is all fun and gravy, the question is, how does Gears of War 3 differ from its predecessors?

For 2011, Razer is showing off the Switchblade and Onza. The Switchblade is perhaps one of the most intriguing devices I’ve seen in a long time.

Since Razer is a gaming company, the Switchblade was created to deliver quality gaming experiences on the go. This isn’t a new platform, it is a PC at heart, however the design of the system is what makes it unique.

Here at ThinkComputers we mainly know Razer for gaming mice and their Mako speaker system.

If you are a console gamer then you are definitely going to like what Razer has in store for you in 2010.
