Why Did Major League Gaming and MadCatz Sign Premium Controller Agreement?

We are going to have more thoughts on this major competitive gaming announcement after discussing it amongst team members, however my initial thoughts are, “Aren’t MadCatz the guys that produce shitty controllers?” What gives MLG?

After writing numerous articles on companies such as Razer, Astro Gaming, and a few others possibly entering the controller space, Major League Gaming decided to sign an agreement with MadCatz?  I hate MadCatz and I hate their controllers. I gave them their chance back on the original Xbox and Dreamcast and guess what…they sucked.

MadCatz if you are going to enter our space, you better produce some extremely badass controllers, no seriously, blow me away like Astro Gaming did with the headset in 2008.  I certainly hope that MLG does not limit the use of controllers at events – the Razer Onza looks like the best thing since sliced bread and they have actually worked with Pro Gamers.  MadCatz, I do not ever remember you guys giving two craps about the competitive gaming community and the fight sticks (which only recently started being produced) do not count. We’ll have more thoughts at a later time.
