With a reputation built on first-rate adjustability and comfort, the multi-award winning R.A.T. mice return featuring cutting-edge sensor technology and a host of upgrades, supercharging the range for a modern gaming audience and utilizing the latest technology to provide gamers with a winning edge.

Products shipping in the new R.A.T. range include:

Featuring industry leading OMRON switches with a lifecycle of 20 million clicks, the R.A.T.4+ has been designed to deliver flawless precision. Powerful LEDs provide multi-zone backlighting and the Pixart PMW 3330 optical sensor provides trusted performance that gamers can rely on.

Extending the customization options, the R.A.T.6+ features nine programmable buttons and an adjustable palm rest, in addition to a removable weight system that allows gamers to find the ideal weight for their personal preference. Chameleon RGB Intelligent Lighting illuminates the mouse across three separate zones, bathing the R.A.T. with over 16 million lighting combinations, while luxury OMRON switches have been tested to up to 50 million clicks for superior performance.

Designed for the professional gamer, the state-of-the-art Pixart PMW 3389 optical sensor delivers unrivaled precision for any gaming genre. Fully customisable, the R.A.T.8+ features an adjustable palm rest and thumb rest, as well as removable pinkie grip. 18G of removable weights enable gamers to perfect the feel of their R.A.T., while the three stage Chameleon RGB lighting keeps the mouse looking as good as it performs. Onboard memory allows gamers to save up to three profiles, allowing for personalized macro button, sensor and lighting settings when traveling to tournaments.

The powerful Pixart PMW 3330 sensor delivers proven gaming performance, while ultra-reliable OMRON switches have been tested to an impressive 50 million clicks. The palm rest is fully adjustable, tilting plus or minus 15 degrees, side-to-side and extending up to 12mm from the mainframe. The PRO S3 also features Chameleon RGB lighting for stunning visual effects during gaming sessions.

"Since announcing our comeback earlier in the year, gamers have inundated us with requests for new R.A.T. mice, and the passion and enthusiasm we've encountered from the community is truly inspiring. We've been working hard to ensure the new products do justice to the incredible Mad Catz legacy and we're delighted to start shipping the first products in the new range," said Selena Chang, Director of Sales and Operations for Mad Catz Global Limited, "The R.A.T. range continues to be a beacon of innovation and we're confident gamers will be thrilled with the new mice, which we believe offer superb value and unsurpassed quality for all budgets and gaming abilities."

I thought Mad Catz went bankcrupt?
They got bought out and are probably worth a pretty penny to their new (probably Chinese) owners. I personally own a lot of Mad Catz gear and they always seemed to have some niche product that was super cool.

I don't think there's any changes from the original products. Just a way to duck warranties for the old stuff (thumb button fell off my RAT8, can't RMA it...)
