Press Release:

San Diego, November 16, 2009 – Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (AMEX/TSX: MCZ), a leading worldwide third-party interactive entertainment accessory provider, today announced the shipping of the Wireless-N Gaming Adapter for use with Microsoft® Xbox 360 and Sony® PlayStation 3 videogame consoles.

Connecting via the Ethernet (WAN) port on either console, the Wireless-N Gaming Adapter (compatible with 802.11b/g/n networks) proves ideal for online play and content downloading. When using with a Wireless-N network, the Adapter offers a strong and stable connection to your Wireless-N broadband router/access point and delivers up to three times the range and speed (Up to 150Mbs) when compared to other ‘G’ gaming adapters running at speeds up to 54Mbs. Simple, yet versatile, the Wireless-N Gaming Adapter will also connect to any Ethernet ready device to offer instant Wireless-N connectivity!

Shipping with a 3.3ft Ethernet cable, gamers have the freedom to position their Adapter in a location that offers a premium wireless reception, negating the need to house in the direct vicinity of their console.

The Wireless-N Gaming Adapter offers an effortless setup procedure thanks to the Quick Setup Button, which provides seamless gaming console integration when used in conjunction with a router or access point featuring WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup button).

Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz commented, “With more HD entertainment content and online gaming being delivered via Xbox Live® and PSN™, we anticipate the need for Wireless-N gaming adapters will increase. Our Wireless-N Adapter allows Xbox 360 users to access the network wirelessly and for PS3 users to upgrade their wireless technology to the faster N standard.”
