CoD: Black Ops' Mad Catz peripherals revealed

We're not obsessed with Mad Catz controllers, we promise. It's just that yesterday we went through all the trouble of posting a video which runs through the features of the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops themed "Precision Aim Controllers," and now we have images of the controllers, including the PC and Wii offerings. We'd feel silly not posting them after all the hullabaloo we've already made, so here we go:

The 360 controller is like the PS3 one you can see us observing in yesterday's post. The controllers have received a few tweaks since the Modern Warfare 2 versions, as well as a new feature which allows players to slow the analog stick movement for more precise aiming.

Will these controllers actually offer an upper hand? Will they be better than standard controllers, or worse? We'll let someone who gives a damn try them out when the game launches!

Here's the mouse. It looks kind of badass, in an ugly way.

This is the official Black Ops "Gaming Surface," or as we neophytes call it, a mouse pad.

We don't know what this is. A TV remote and a garage door opener, maybe? We're stumped.

There are a couple other peripherals: a charger for those unidentified things up there and a USB dog tag. If they were mind blowing we'd have posted the pictures, don't worry.

    That mouse looks to be one of Cyborg's R.A.T. mice that you can customize to fit your hand properly. It's probably the best peripheral of the bunch shown here.

    lets hope they dont suck like the modern warfare 2 controller

    The mouse is extremely awsome (looking) and completely reminds me of a Decepticon mid transformation.

    I hate Mad Catz. Their controllers are so uncomfortable, and this looks like no exception.

    the mouse looks awesome but it might not be worth it Bl
  • Caio - July 3, 2010 4:21 p.m.

    I'm desperately scared of that mouse.
  • OneToBoner - July 3, 2010 6:23 a.m.

    That mouse looks like it would cut my hand every time I try to left click.

    Really? Are you sure they'll be terrible?????? Of course they will. Didn't the guy from yesterday's video say that the new controllers will have ALMOST the same amount of awesomeness as the official controllers? So I woun't be buying these anytime soon.

    If these are anything like madcatz mics they will be shit.

    Spaz, you truly are a spaz... I think you meant to say: "i bet it's all going to break after a week like the last lot of their call of duty branded stuff"
  • bradmillow0 - July 3, 2010 12:45 a.m.

    They look pretty cool, excluding the Wii one... I might buy one, but then again, I might not.
