Mad Catz Street Fighter V Arcade Fightstick

Category:Latest News

The entire team at Mad Catz has been working closely with Capcom to create something special for this next generation of Street Fighter.
One thing we really wanted to achieve for our SFV range of products was going back to our roots. Creating a range of products that is robust and able to be used at the highest level of play.

SFV-product-family-blog-post

Introducing the Mad Catz Street Fighter V range of fighting game controllers.

Continuing with our award winning tournament grade arcade sticks, Mad Catz presents the Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition S+ (TE-S+) and Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2+ (TE2+). We listened to the feedback from the gaming community that really fell in love with the original Tournament Edition FightSticks, so we decided to bring it back in form of the TE-S+. Why the plus? We’re adding L3 and R3 buttons, full touch panel compatibility (gesture and button press) along with a refined case for a new generation of Street Fighter. Similarly, we’re doing the same with the TE2, which will also have the additional button and touch panel functionality built in.

If the Tournament Edition range of FightSticks aren’t for you, then we still have two more options in the Street Fighter V Arcade FightStick Alpha and Street Fighter V FightPad PRO. Both are entry level gaming controllers with a focus on the core necessity to kick ass efficiently with power and methodology. We’ve put a lot of thought into the design of these products, with a core focus on comfort and playability. The FightStick Alpha is a new level of control that is both compact and ideal for travel/storage yet does not sacrifice the bare necessities of competitive standard. Holding true to it’s legacy, it plays brilliantly in your lap or on a flat surface and maintains a genuine arcade layout.

Discover the new ARK Headsets

Category:Latest News
ARK 100 WIRED STEREO HEADSET Get straight into the game with this plug and play headset, featuring the key benefits of the ARK series. 3 EQ modes allow you to customize the audio and, coupled with the supreme comfort provided by our extensively tuned headband, your immersion is guaranteed. For the PC version, the Tritton Audio Centre software provides 7.1 virtual surround sound and full control of your EQ, microphone, voice masks and audio profiles; this is the headset for the competitive gamer.
ARK 300 WIRELESS 7.1 HEADSET The most advanced headset we've ever created. A 4K-compatible HDMI pass-through interface, delivers uncompressed 7.1 audio to provide the most accurate DTS Headphone:X surround sound experience possible. An ultra-low latency wireless connection connects game and chat audio from the headset to the base station, which also doubles as a charging stand. This really is the true embodiment of Tritton's Ultimate Gaming Audio promise.

 

Features

AUDIONOMICS ULTIMATE AUDIO FIDELITY AND ERGONOMICS

Our unique monocurve design has been extensively tested and tuned to offer the perfect fit; both to ensure the audio response of the speakers and, most importantly, enhanced comfort over long gaming sessions. The ear cans slide within the monocurve enabling adjustment for different head sizes, whilst the exterior always retains its powerful, unique profile.

The ARK 300 also features the Audionomics Dial that allows you to dynamically alter the fit and audio performance to suit you.

R:DRIVE MULTI SPEAKER PRECISION AUDIO

Expecting a single driver to cover all audio frequencies can end in compromise. On the ARK 100 each ear can houses two drivers: one 60mm driver dedicated to superior bass and mid-range response, whilst one 10mm driver (two in the ARK 300) handles higher frequencies.

The result is a far richer, precision audio experience due to each driver handling the frequencies it was designed for.

KAMELEON MOTION DYNAMIC RGB LIGHTING

Accelerometer-based control of color and brightness means that you can customize the headset with ease; simply tilt until you have the color and brightness you desire. You can also control the speed of LED effects, such as breathing, heartbeat and color cycling.

The motion-dynamic adjustment offers an intuitive, engaging way to customize your headset and make it your own.

The Technomancer on consoles June 28th

Category:Latest News

The Technomancer is a Sci-fi RPG set on Mars during the War of Water, where an aspiring Technomancer faces a myriad of questions as his future grows threatened by the secrets of his past.

Technomancers are “mage-warriors”, who harness, thanks to an innate talent, destructive electrical-based powers, amplified by their cybernetic implants. Both respected and feared by all, they are fearsome warriors trained from a young age to fight. You are one of them, about to finally pass your initiation rite to become a fully-fledged Technomancer.

The Technomancer will offer players action-oriented combat gameplay along four different skill trees, focusing on 3 different fighting styles and the destructive electric-focused powers of the Technomancers. But all situations aren’t necessarily to be dealt with brute strength, with dynamic conversation dialogue playing a deep role in quests, changing the story depending on the decisions you make. Craft equipment, weapons and armor for yourself and for the companions you’ll recruit along your adventure, nurturing relationships with them.

On the run from the Secret Police and confronted by the harsh realities of the Red Planet, you must undertake a quest that takes you through forgotten paradises, cities lost under the ice, and dystopian shanties sprawled across Mars’ dusty embrace.

Faced with the cruelty of Mars’ iron-fist enforcers and alien wild-life, can you survive long enough to uncover the truth behind The Technomancer?
