Famous Canadian peripherals maker slumped in revenue after several unsuccessful loans announce final bankruptcy
It's not pleasant to hear about a computer company that closes, but this is happening to a manufacturer with the unusual name. After several loans and entry into economic difficulties in recent years announces Mad Catz And thus ending the long saga of this manufacturer.
For those of you who have not yet heard of Mad Catz, Which has not been marketed intensively in the Israeli market, is mainly known for the radical designs of its products. The company started out in 1989 and already created peripherals that include game controllers and various cables for the PC and game consoles. In the previous decade, the company focused mainly on Hagamim.
The flagship product in recent years is the RAT 7. Why a rat as a rat?
This modular mouse allows the replacement of many parts of it and comes with a superfluous price tag of 100 or more when launched. Since the RAT 8 mouse and two more mice have been launched from this series, they are iconic and far less memorable than this mouse.
Another product of Mad Catz Is the TE2 that brought the arcade home. This advanced controller with joystick and dedicated buttons did a good job of getting a lot of praise across the web.
In the past two years, the management of Mad Catz has fired many employees due to very low revenues in the peripheral equipment market and losses against giants such as Logitech. This week, after the company's share price reached close to zero, it was decided to close the business and declare bankruptcy.
We hope that the people who have made progress in the world of peripheral equipment will find work in the field and will continue to promote the accessories they enjoy. With games Such as Star Citizen, We will certainly need it.
