Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (“Mad Catz”) (NYSE MKT: MCZ) announced today the TRITTON PRO+ True 5.1 Surround Sound Headset, the upgrade to the award winning TRITTON AX Pro™. Compatible with both the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system from Sony®, the TRITTON PRO+ True 5.1 Surround Sound Headset is expected to ship in September 2012.
The PRO+ features a number of key enhancements designed to offer superior performance and comfort.

The PRO+ sports a lightweight and flexible design, ideal for extended playing sessions and replete in an eye-catching gloss white finish.

We believe the PRO+ will be an important part of our growth and enable us to maintain our leadership position within the high-end gaming headset market.” said Darren Richardson, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz. “The PRO+ innovation in audio and design further demonstrates our commitment to the category and is part of our strategy to bring market leading products to passionate gamers.”
