Mad Catz Send Support for PS3 Black Ops

July 17, 2010 Written by Jonathan Leack

Mad Catz, the long-running peripheral manufacturer, recently announced that it’ll be creating a line of peripherals for the upcoming first-person shooter, Call of Duty: Black Ops. The PlayStation 3 was announced as a supported platform a little over a week ago, and now the official details are finally in.

The Call of Duty: Black Ops peripheral line-up will feature a wide-range of products including a PlayStation 3 controller, Xbox 360 controller, Wii remote and nunchuck, PC mouse, ProGaming glasses, controller faceplates, mousepad, gamepad and even a gaming headset. Each peripheral and accessory will be decorated with some nice art to match the theme of Treyarch’s upcoming eighth addition to the series, Black Ops. The full details for the Mad Catz PS3 controller are below:

Call of Duty: Black Ops Wireless PrecisionAIM Controller – PlayStation 3
The Black Ops Wireless PrecisionAIM Controller utilizes a secure 2.4 GHz wireless link to connect with the console for accurate wire-free action. Similar in features to the Xbox 360 Combat Controller, the PlayStation 3 variant features a built-in Rechargeable Battery that allows for charging directly from the console’s USB port and provides up to 60 hours of game play from a single charge. ‘Military inspired’ Rubber Grips and soft-touch finish feature along with the unique Combat Buttons allowing gamers to enter Precision Aim mode or re-map Action Button and ThumbStick commands. Immersive Backlighting bathes the Analog ThumbSticks in a red glow for enhanced in-game atmosphere and the Wireless PrecisionAIM Controller for PlayStation 3 is again available in dual ‘Stealth’ or ‘Tiger’ designs.

MSRP: $49.99

Official images of the Black Ops peripherals have been released and I must say they look fantastic. Unfortunately Mad Catz hasn’t released an image for the PS3 controller, so images of some of the other peripherals will have to suffice.
