Mad Catz

markjulio01When I was in Singapore I sat down with a brilliant friend and journalist, Jonathan Toyad (formerly with GameSpot Asia) to discuss just how things happened the way they did with myself and Mad Catz… It was a thrilling moment of recollection and emotionally challenging to realize huge change that happened because of “luck.” Check out all the fun stuff and my version of the story below!

Just earlier today, Mad Catz Japan announced their latest collaboration with Capcom in the form of the Ultra Street Fighter IV Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2! Two models were detailed, one for the Xbox 360 and one that is compatible with both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4! Currently only slated for a Japan release, but Mad Catz did mention they are working on bringing it out to other markets. Click below for all the info!

Also, on a personal note. I was so excited for the announcement of this project. We worked really hard on this one and I’m just in love with the blue PS3/PS4 design. Please look forward to more news, SOON!
