Console Peripheral Maker Madcatz officially announced today that they will be publishing a game for the Xbox 360.
I wonder if this deal is part of the reason MS is trying to down play the Nyko Zoom peripheral?
Does it actually work? Is it only time until MS buys them?
Supposedly it does work, which is technically a first for MadCatz, which makes lowest quality accessories i.e. sh!t. I really wonder how MadCatz stays in business? That is quite a feat! I must respect them for that.
just an FYI... Nyko makes the Zoom peripheral... not Madcatz. MS earlier today was warning against using the Zoom but all accounts say it works well.
Hmm flight sims ...lol well microsoft flight simulator will be nice :D the long running flight sim on PC.
? microsoft studios wasnt it.
What does publishing a game has to do with an accessory for Kinect?
Never knew they made games
They don't, that's why this one will be terrible, heh.
Like i said in the last article lets give them a chance first before we start bashing them. They have to start somewhere just like everyone else.
Probably a hardware/software game like DJ Hero. Not saying it will be music related, but I'm sure Madcatz will be pushing some type of hardware along with their game.
If their games are as good as their controllers we could be in for a treat.
So Microsoft's got Mad Catz and Sony's got 4 Gamers. I'm glad 4 Gamers are sticking to peripherals.
It fits considering MadCatz makes unreliable products that break within a week (if not the day you get it) just like Microsoft when they launched the 360.
A big company like this could be good for publishing. They could give developers the money they need for making a game. This is good.
This is not what we mean't MS....
God they make terrible peripherals. For EVERY platform. If their games are anything like their console stuff, it won't be good...
For all those hating on MadCatz stuff, their TE fightsticks would like to have a word with you.. Stay free
I bought one of their PS2 controllers and it was a cheaply made piece of shit. "Has Microsoft fallen so low as to ask for..pfffft *snicker* Madcatz's help?" How's that for a headline?
If this is anything like their products the game will be cool at first and then break after a month or so.
I dont know why I thought of this (guess because I saw the word catz), I really want a Thundercats game. Don't know why.
seems a lot of people dont understand the difference between publishing and developing. Publishing - like what MadCatz have announced they are going to do - is taking care of all the marketing, releasing, printing etc. Developing is actually making the game. MadCatz are NOT developing a game. they are simply going to release games that OTHER developers make. Same way that Activision PUBLISHED Modern Warfare 2 but Infinity Ward developed it, or how Microsoft PUBLISHED Gears of War but Epic DEVELOPED it. big difference.
