Does that brand hold any value? I mean Saitek was a good sale and glad it was bought by Logitech so it was saved but I don’t think Tritons holds any weight.

Cats have nine lives, so we've got some revivals left in the tank.

They'll need it, at this rate.

More like Logitech will pull a EA and cannibalize and them like the latter does w/game companies. I'd have rather it gotten sold to another company it would have stood a chance where as Logitech just wants to control the IP and maybe incorporate 1 or 2 of them that pairs well w/their own. I see this purchase as more of a control scheme one less rival to worry about and patents others can't use.

Too bad you’re wrong and they are supporting existing Saitek product like my X52 Pro including new drivers...

I'll call it early and say Mad Catz wont be around long this time.
They will cannibalize the company leaving it a shell.
