You might remember that Mad Catz scored the exclusive rights to produce Xbox 360 wireless headphones not long ago. Well here they are here and apparently they don’t need to be tethered to your controller for voice chat or plugged into a wall to charge. The new Mad Catz Warhead 7.1 gets everything it needs from a base station connected to your console. Using USB and optical cables directly from the Xbox 360 to the tower shown above, and it will supposedly deliver enough 5.8GHz bandwidth for virtual Dolby surround sound on four pairs of headphones at once — plus wireless Xbox LIVE audio chat. Pretty awesome.

The USB base station will also give you an on-screen battery readout, and there’s a second swappable battery pack in the base station’s charger. It will be under $300 this holiday season.

Mad Catz’ new moddable fight stick for Wii

Posted in Wii Accessories by Conner Flynn on January 26th, 2010

The Wii may not be super powerful and you don’t necessarily think fighting games when you think of Nintendo’s console, but the release of Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom hopes to change all that. Mad Catz’s has a cool new Arcade FightStick to go with it.

Like other Mad Catz’s fightsticks, this one is moddable and even has a few features that the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions lack, like a toggle switch that will let the arcade stick control either the d-pad of the classic controller or the left or right analog stick. That means you’ll be able to use it with a bunch of Virtual Console titles. Awesome. Are you ready to fight?

As to what all of those buttons do, we’re still trying to figure that out. We do know that it beats your current gaming mouse by a landslide.

Mad Catz's Wireless Fender Telecaster is distressedWe’ve seen plenty of Rock Band guitars, but the new Rock Band ‘Player’s Edition’ Fender Telecaster for the Xbox 360 has a distressed look. For $110. By now I would think everyone has a Rock Band guitar, so $110 seems pretty steep, distressing or no.

The Mad Catz guitar also features Shredderz fret buttons that should make it easier to rock those solos. Some other features include the optional Electro-Harmonix Overdrive Pedal, the back tuning button, tilt mechanism, and a new touch sensitive pickup.

Mad Catz guarantees that their Wiimote will fit in the sleeves of normal Wiimotes. It will likely fit into any gun,fishing rod, etc that a Wiimote will fit into.

Mad Catz Rock Band DrumsI have talked before about Rock Band and how much fun it is to play with a group of friends. I’m not the only Rock Band fan out there that likes to play the game. Popularity for the game is so high that there is a wealth of aftermarket controllers on the market for the Xbox and the PS3. You don’t see that many for the Wii though.

Mad Catz has announced that it will be changing that. The controller maker has signed an agreement with Nintendo that will allow it to build and market officially licensed Wii Rock Band controllers outside of Asia.
