so maybe keep Mad catz for specialty controllers like gaming guitars, fight sticks, etc but other under Eclipse or Cyborg back to Saitek roots
yes, it is even easier to be searched, checkout gamestop search with Mad catz and madcatz, different results
all ideas and hypothetical, i hope CEO read
-Focus Mad catz brand on specialty controllers like fighting pads or guitars, etc?
-focus only on practicle mass market potential prodycs, discontinue any ides that is not for the mass market like Lynx controllers?
-change the brand to Catz as "mad" looks to some childish, and discontinue from the old budgwet SKUs heritage?
-reduce the number of mice SKUs?
-mobile headsets and FREQ highend prices difficult to sell uner the mad catz brand, matbe the TRitton?
- expand Office range under the Eclipse brand and have more practicle designs?
-New mice and keyboards designs for gaming?
-TRITTON Swarm idea is great but need to perferct it. beyond gaming?
-Tritton expand gaming range and referseh in CES 2016?
-Tritton into Speakers, mobile BT, Earphones, PC and TV Surround.?
-Tritton in Audio cables?
-Tritton in Chating PC/Mac headsets?
i wonder what could be the number with this time Co-publishing, doing the core accessories, the bundles and Europe?
Also how much they would sell/ship in September (Jul-Sep qtr) for retailer ready to launch on time in 6th Oct?
and How much other products would they sell/ship to retailes ror consumer buzz to capitalize on RB4?
beyond 2015 potential what i wish Mad Catz change in 2016 all hypothetical:
1-remove the "Mad" nd keep the "Catz"?
2-introduce new office/Home-office "Eclipse" branded accessories with simple designs like Logitech or Microsoft.\ with low-mid price points?
3-re brand the FREQ headsets design under Tritton?
4-Change the Tritton packaging?
5-Do NOT invest in designing complicated looking designs like the Lynx controllers and focus on more mass products designs?
6-diversify Tritton to Spaekaes mobile/PC/Home theater?
7-Premium accessories for RB4?
1- it is available in many stores, bought from Virgin store
2-I bought the cheapest one.
3-the quality and finish is great
4-the packaging is poor, from outside and inside, the quality of thr printing is unaccaptable to me when compared to other brands, if i didn't know the brand most likely i wouldn't buy.
5-The Mad catz products also available and the packaging looks great but its is too expensive to buy for a brand Mad catz, not sure who is doing the pricing?????
no wonder sales droping?????
looks lovely, nice designs
like Drums or Cymbal or wooden guitars?
Many of us may rembemr the Eclipse brand, as i recall from the Saitek era that Mad catz pushed for non gming accessories, as Co. decieded to focus on gaming, almost disapeared.
I beleive it could be the potential future of Mad catz, it even used to have lovely products at the time.
also the brand trade mark is active.
Srill hidden under the tritton brand sub menu
or check the site
Tritton got lovely name, many used thru the years in Europe and US, is it time to utilize the brand beyond gaming, like headpgones, earbuds, Airdrives (remeber it) designs, bluetooth mobile speakers, TV/Hifi surround speakers, PC/Mac speakers?
hope managment have the same feeling like me that the Mad Catz brand difficult to market in Office or Audio spaces.
why buy a game then buy the guitar when you could buy the game and guitar bundle.
good for mad catz
also i like the cymbal expansion kit.
i hope the catz try to launch a premium controllers at launch of game, while the core controllers be bundled atlaunch, hopes...
I beleive in Tritton and the expanssion beyond gaming headsets. i think the pressure on cash put off the development of Tritton?
Hope I heir about Tritton in CES 2016? hope of mobile speakers, smartphones earbuds, PC/Mac speakers, TV surround speakers, outdoor speakers???????
if RB4 sells the same like RB3? and Mad catz top line was ~$60m so what would be when sells RB4 core accessories and bundles and publish the game in some geographies around the world?
at 20%-24% GM?
Tax benefits from previous lossess?
Add Other accessories like Tritton, Mad catz mice, Saitek in the pipeline and existing with the RB4 buzz?
proplr will buy the gsme snd laterthecontroller to play with.
it is not about the bundles but the accessories that will foloow.
