Mobile gaming controllers have been around for awhile now, but none have really perfected the product. They are either too big to be portable or too small to be comfortable. Well, MadCatz now looks to combine the best of both worlds with their “hybrid” mobile gaming controller which is the LYNX 9. The LYNX 9 is a Bluetooth enabled and can connect to smartphones, tablets, PCs, and even media streaming devices.
The LYNX 9 comes in at a staggering $300, which is definitely a lot for a gaming controller; the convenience feature naturally comes with a high price. The LYNX 9 is small enough to be able to be folded up to be put in a pocket or bag, but can be expanded to give maximum comfort while playing games for extended periods of time. Along with folding capability, the device features a keyboard module and a tablet extension for the gaming controller. All of which are included with in the price. The controller also is enabled to have the track pads be used as a mouse for navigating the web and has a built-in mic that allows the user to access voice commands on their device.
It is unknown when the controller will be made available, but you can sign up to be notified when it is available.
