R.A.T.9 wireless professional gaming mouse from Mad Catz begins to ship
Gamers who take their hobby seriously will surely have at least one or two pieces of hardware that is of high quality in their quest to be the best, if not in the world, then at least among their clique. Of course, we know that latent ability and talent plays a very huge role here as we are pretty sure if you hand Fatal1ty a standard issue Microsoft mouse to go up against you in a game of Quake with the latest Razer, you will still have a can of whoop ass opened on you.
I have always maintained that gaming peripherals are a two-eged sword, if you win more games, you can always cite your victories to superior hardware, and if you lose despite having the best hardware, it will definitely be a big blow to your ego since you will be left wondering whether gaming is the right career path for you. Mad Catz joins the gaming fray with their latest offering, the R.A.T.9 wireless professional gaming mouse that has started to ship.
It will join the already available Cyborg R.A.T 7, 5 and 3 gaming mice, where you will be able to enjoy high performance 2.4GHz wireless technology that delivers an estimated latency of less than 1 millisecond. It will run off a unique rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack that is capable of delivering up to 9 hours of game play, where the included stylish desktop charging unit will juice up your battery pack as well as hold another 42 grams of removable weights to suit your gaming style. Each purchase will include a couple of ‘hot swappable’ battery packs, letting you get your game on for at least 18 hours straight.
Don’t worry about stuff like RSI with the Cyborg R.A.T.9 wireless gaming mouse – it was specially designed with comfort in mind, boasting similar interchangeable palm rest, adjustable pinkie grips, and adjustable length, width and height settings as with its predecessors. Compatible with Windows 7, Vista and XP machines, the R.A.T.9 wireless professional gaming mouse can be yours for $149.99.
