Mad Catz announced today at Gamescom 2013 in Germany the shipping of their new professional gaming keyboard, S.T.R.I.K.E.
Previously announced at E3 in June 2013, the S.T.R.I.K.E. is designed with the competitive gamer in mind, featuring a unique membrane key-bed designed to offer the full tactile feedback of mechanical keys but without the excessive noise or the need to ‘bottom out’ the keys.
Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. had this to say about the new competitive edge keyboard:
“The addition of the S.T.R.I.K.E. provides us with an eco-system of keyboards cementing our commitment to passionate gamers with a range that meets their budgets and exceeds their expectations.”
The S.T.R.I.K.E. features a full RGB backlit key-bed, capable of displaying up to sixteen million customizable colours. In addition to full media controls and a removable wrist-rest, the keyboard features a total of twelve macro keys and three separate modes of operation, providing a total of thirty-six programmable buttons for gamers to add their macro’s and change button layouts.
The S.T.R.I.K.E.3 is available in gloss black, gloss white and gloss red colours. Who says that you can’t look good whilst you game?
