Mad Catz reveals Modern Warfare 2 controllers for young (and old) snipers

If Infinity Ward’s own Prestige Edition of Modern Warfare 2 isn’t enough to satisfy your lust for custom hardware, Mad Catz is ready to pick up the slack with no less than ten MW2-branded peripherals. The crown jewel to the set will be the Combat Controller, which will have a couple of extra buttons, but more importantly, is likely the controller Robert Bowling was tweeting about last month. Come this November, you’ll also be able to talk smack via a Throat Communicator on the 360 or a more mundane Bluetooth Headset on the PS3, add Skinz to your controllers and Microsoft console, and even your neglected PC can be enriched with an Elite Keyboard and Sniper Mouse combo. In other words – THE HYPE MACHINE IS IN FULL EFFECT.

Update: IGN has been first to preview the full plethora of goods, and we’ve got the video for you after the break (Thanks, quasar).

The game has just received a news update via Robert Bowling’s Twitter account, who is the community manager over at Infinity Ward, the developer of the title, about the creation of a dedicated/custom Modern Warfare 2 controller. “In a design meeting for a #MW2 controller. Need your advice – Concave or Convex grips for the Analog sticks? Whats [sic] your preference and why?,” reads the tweet from Bowling’s account. Who knows exactly what the controller would look like? Hopefully it will not resemble the image above 😀

It would seem that Activision, which is handling the publishing of the game, isn’t content with charging a lot of money for the two separate special editions of the title, and will also offer, when the title will appear in November, a special controller for fans to get the most out of their title and for the company to get the most money out of their customers’ pockets. As far as this being a smart move, who knows. People tend to get used to their own controllers and to learn a whole new one just for a single game might be a tad silly.

Bowling did mention though that the controller would be developed by neither Activision nor Infinity Ward, so it is getting more and more likely that another company, like Mad Catz, specialized in creating peripheral controllers, will handle this project.
