Official MLG FightSticks and Controllers From Mad Catz

on August 23, 2011 10:11 AM

You want to impress your gamer friends by pretending that you’re some bad-ass competitive gamer that takes part in the MLG when you’re, in fact, realistically far worse at gaming than a quadriplegic is at Dance Dance Revolution? You can now thank Mad Catz for providing you with this opportune moment to pretend to be awesome. Mad Catz has just announced a line of MLG-branded accessories, starting with a Tournament Edition Arcade FightStick, which will enable you to kick ass the professional way.

If you’re familiar with the Super Street Fighter IV FightSticks, you’ll have some sort of idea of what you can expect from Mad Catz stick, as it’s identical in many ways. With the joystick and buttons made by renowned parts maker Sanwa Denshi, a button lock for the turbo switches and home buttons, and a compartment in the back for cable storage, the FightStick is pretty much everything an MLG contestant will need — even nifty MLG logos to make you look even more elite.

Other MLG-themed controllers will be showcased at the MLG Pro Circuit in Raleigh, NC this weekend. Of course, we will have some more information on the MLG goodies by Mad Catz once they have been showcased.
