It's hard to tell if flight sims will ever be as popular as they were back in the 1990s, but rest assured, if you're a fan of the genre, not all PC peripheral makers have forgotten about you. That's especially true of Mad Catz, which today announced that the Saitek X-55 Rhino H.O.T.A.S. (Hands On Throttle and Stick) will ship to consumers in early 2014 at an affordable price point.

Austin Powers isn't the only one with mojo. Gaming peripheral maker Mad Catz also has Mojo, only theirs is of a different kind. Specifically, it's another mini Android game console, only Mad Catz promises its will be more powerful than the competition. In addition, Mad Catz is keeping its Mojo an open platform, something that could give it a leg up against the competition. Ace reporter and Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang had a moment to speak with Mad Catz about its Mojo in detail.

Having trouble swinging your lightsaber while simultaneously casting Force Lightning and juggling the gear you've taken from the cold, dead bodies of Sith Lords across The Old Republic? Fear not, Padawan; Mad Catz's most ridiculous mouse yet, the Cyborg MMO 7, may just be the peripheral you need to cure screen-shuffle-it is. The 13 programmable buttoned beast went up for sale today.
It's been a little more than a year since we first reviewed the R.A.T. gaming mouse from Mad Catz, and called it the best mouse we’ve ever played with. Since then, there’s been a couple of incremental upgrades to the line (the cordless R.A.T. 9, the 6400 DPI Contagion Edition), but nothing that fundamentally altered the design. They’re about to do just that, though, and we got to take a sneak peak at the result.
The Cyborg M.M.O. is (for all the terribly bad guessers out there) a version of the R.A.T. designed for MMO gaming. Where the original R.A.T. had 6 programmable buttons, the M.M.O. has 13, plus a shift button and a three-mode toggle, allowing for a maximum of 78 custom bindings per profile.
Also like the original, the M.M.O. has a feature we’ve never seen on a mouse before. Special buttons on either side of the scroll wheel allow you enter “Action Lock” mode, where any right- or left-mouse-button click toggles between the button being in the “up” position and the button being held down. The idea is that you use this feature for MMOs where holding right click causes your character to run forward, or enter mouselook mode. Tri-color indicator LEDs in each mouse button keep you from losing track of whether Action Lock is on or off.
And of course the mouse comes equipped with the latest 6400 DPI sensor—a feature that might be more useful to RTS or FPS gamers. We’ll be looking forward to testing out the M.M.O. for a full review, but so far we like what we see. Check out our gallery of the M.M.O.’s snazzy new paintjob below, and less us know what you think of Mad Catz’ latest.
When we review something, we assign a verdict based on the strengths and weaknesses of that product relative to the other products in its field. When there are no other products in that field, things get a little weird.
Such is the case with the Cyborg Gaming Lights, the latest member in the rapidly expanding family of Mad Catz PC gaming peripherals. This pair of lights uses amBX ambient technology to enhance gaming. It's a little hard to visualize the Gaming Lights without seeing them in action, but the effect is actually surprisingly pleasing.
