MadCatz, known more for their gaming system peripherals than for the products they bring to the PC gaming market, took the wraps off a new line of gaming mice this week – and they look pretty sick. Shown off at CES earlier in the year, the Cyborg R.A.T. line of mice is comprised of four different models. Two of them, the R.A.T.5 and the R.A.T.7, are now shipping. A lower-end model, the R.A.T.3 and a higher end model, the R.A.T.9, are expected to ship later this summer.
Specs and price depend entirely upon the mouse in question. The R.A.T.3 starts at $49.99 and brings with it a 3200DPI laser sensor with four pogrammable DPI settings. Gamers can switch between them via an integrated toggle switch. The R.A.T.9 will retail for $129.99 and employs a “twin-eye” 5600DPI laser sensor with the same four programmable custom DPI settings. An additional Precision Aim mode lets gamers hold down a button to temporarily slow down mode during the middle of a frenetic FPS battle. All the mice are designed to work best with Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.
