Mad Catz showing off their goods at CeBIT

CeBIT's one of those shows I'd love to go but doubt I'll ever be able to. Being in Germany, it's a fairly long flight for me and it would be a rather expensive trip. But, if you are going to be there this year, Mad Catz will be on the prowl showing off some of their latest items. R.A.T. gaming mice will be on hand if you want to try them out. One of the more interesting things is their range of LCD touch sensitive panels. Our own resident pilot. Dave Gamble, would probably love to grab a look at their Pro Flight X-65F Combat Control System though. Finally, the first public display of their Super Street Fighter IV Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition "S" (wow, that's a mouthful) will be there for you to take a test fight with.
