Mad Catz MLG Pro Circuit Controller Review (Gamerlive.tv)

Does this deluxe built peripheral live up to the hype? (Mad Catz, Mad Catz MLG Pro Circuit Controller, PS3, Xbox 360) -

Review dwels way too much on price, and doesn't talk much about actual performance. I don't know if it's worth its price tag yet because none of the reviews for it have told me what I want to know, but even so I feel inclined to purchase this if only to send a message to input peripheral manufacturers: stop making cheap controllers only for the budget-gamers, and start making more high-end controllers. I'll pay for it if it's worth its price. All I want is something that performs better than the standard PS3 controller (I know this is a 360 review, but they're essentially the same).

I do talk about performance in the review. And it's definitely up to snuff if you can afford it. Well recommended.

I'll look for it in stores. If I can at least hold it my hands before buying, that would go a long way to deciding if I'll buy or not. Really, I just need to see how tight and precise the sticks feel, and how the button and trigger depths feel. After that, it'll be testing it in action. How responsive everything is, what kind of dead zone the sticks have, and how rapidly I can execute commands with the buttons, d-pad, and triggers.

Those are the kinds of things I want to read in reviews, by the way! Not 10 times that you think it's expensive. Readers really only need to know how much it costs at the end of the review. The price people are willing to pay for peripherals (and for quality ones, especially) is entirely personal, so I don't think a reviewer should even mention it in a review, unless it's to say that the materials or the responsiveness of the hardware feel like they're worth the price tag or not.

From what I have read these pads ooze quality!
