Mad Catz starts to ship PS2 accessories.
The GTR group recently announced that Mad Catz accessories for the Playstation 2 are on their way to electronics retailers across the country. The Playstation 2 peripherals by the company include a system stand, the Panther arcade stick, a dual-force controller, and a wireless remote for the console's DVD player.
Peter Kozicz, the president and CEO of GTR group has stated, "We expect the strong demand for our [Playstation 2] accessories to contribute to particularly robust third and fourth quarters for the industry and our company. Kozicz also stated, "The launch of the PS2 marks the beginning of a long-term growth cycle for our industry. Over the last two years, we have positioned GTR to be a prime beneficiary of this growth. Today's announcement clearly indicates that we are ready to capitalize on positive industry trends and deliver on our corporate strategy to create shareholder value."
Mad Catz is a highly respected maker of peripherals, and their products should certainly prove to be worthy additions to the Playstation 2 when it's launched in two weeks.
