MadCatz releasing Titanfall-branded accessories

Peripheral maker signs deal with Electronic Arts to produce a range of products based on Respawn's upcoming shooter.

MadCatz announced today that it has signed an agreement with Electronic Arts that will allow the peripheral company to manufacture a series of products based on Respawn Entertainment's upcoming shooter Titanfall.

The products--headsets, mice, keyboards, and gaming surfaces--are expected to be in stores alongside Titanfall in spring 2014. No images of the products were released, nor was pricing information.

Titanfall is a multiplayer-only first-person shooter created by numerous former Call of Duty developers, including Infinity Ward cofounder Vince Zampella.

The game launches in 2014 for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

The line to play Titanfall at the EB Expo was taking people over an hour to get a go. But people I talked to that sucked it up and persevered had one word when they came out. Incredible! That was enough to get me excited. Autumn 2014. Yay balls!

I was just over at Frys and checked out their new range of headsets. They are a hell of a lot more comfortable on my noggin then the high end Turtle Beach set I have. I'd pick up a wireless headset for my xbox one if the come out with a branded version. After 35 years I'm pretty much done with PC gaming thanks to developing carpel tunnel from the amazingly non ergonomic keyboard and mouse.

Interesting... I am very excited to try this. I have a sweet gaming PC rig, but I like using my 360 controller for FPS.. So I may stick with console so I won't be out matched. I'm sure it'll be fine on le sexbox. It'd be sweet if they came out with gloves to wear kinda like PAcific Rim lol

Mad Catz? eww, no thanks. I'm going to stick with the genuine Xbox accessories this time. I've learnt my lesson.......

Really?  This wouldn't be so bad if they didn't make crap that broke all the time.  Look at what they did to Tritton.  Makes me shed another tear for the departure of Logitech from the console market.  They were the only 3rd party company that I would spend money on.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Mad Catz, is cheap chinese knockoffs, and I have thought of them that way since the PS one days.

These retards are still in business?  Their shit controllers break after a week.

How is Mad Catz still even in business.  I've owned just a couple of their peripherals a while back and they were terrible.  This was a while ago when I used to buy off-brand accessories to save money, Mad Catz is pretty much the reason I stopped doing that.

@dashboardman If the games dose  really well on PC and Xbone it will  get ported to  PS4 in a year or so.  If it dose well on PC and not Xbone that id 100% that the game will get ported to PS4. If the game dose well only well on Xbone and meh on PC then the game will stay exclusive to PC and xbone . EA wants the PC version because it makes them more money per unit then what they'll get on the console. And as for the PS4 port EA is not going to ignore the other half of the CoD and BF fanbase.

@Awrath You already posted this. Are you a Madcatz rep! If you are tell them I would have bought their strike 7 if they hadnt made a high end gaming keyboard that wasnt mechanical

@A-Typing-Llama They're producing PC peripherals for the definitve version of Titanfall, the PC version, because everyone knows FPS's are best on PC. But you can play with the shitty Xbox controller at 30 FPS, lol.

@baxwam @dashboardman 

I don't give a rat's ass whether it gets ported on ps4 or not in a year! All I know is that it will be playable on Xbox One on DAY ONE...and not after a whole year. And even if it does get a ps4 release date after 365 days it will be old news...just a stale piece of bread! And I like my bread fresh!

@Awrath For 250 quid, they can keep it. I just can't justify paying that kind of money on a keyboard.....

@UltimateBastard  haha no I'm  not. I messed something up when I made a comment so it posted it twice. (when I replied to a comment) And the other one was made for those who still think madcatz sucks because of the products they made back in the old days.

Don't really get why they didn't make a mechanical keyboard actually.

@Prats1993 @A-Typing-Llama I prefer controllers for FPS. I don't like the aiming with mice, but that's my opinion. Like playing Borderlands on PC.. I use my 360 controller. The aiming may be more precise, but moving around with a keyboard is donkey balls.

@ThrashMatt26 Have you ever thought that the other platform was PC since they did announced it later on? no you haven't. Has it been confirmed to be on PS4? no. Have they given a reason why it's not on the PS4? YESSS.

@UltimateBastard

nice. I was going to buy a R.A.T 7 but I ended up buying a logitech mouse instead because it's better for the M&K converters for the consoles. 

I play on both pc and console and when I play console fps I use M&K because I think its more fun that way.

@Awrath @UltimateBastard I actually own a rat 7 mouse and use to own a v7 keyboard loved both of them, never experienced their shit old days. Im guessing they didnt make the new keyboard mechanical because it would have drove the price up to high and no one would buy it. Its £250 as it is

@Kamercon @ThrashMatt26 Thank you for providing a source, they still never said anything that the PS4 is not capable of, nor that it won't be coming to other systems later. but once again, thank you.

@Kamercon @ThrashMatt26 They announced PC a day after they announced the game, what I'm referring to was said about a month after. and what reason have they given for it not being on PS4?
