Mad Catz Interactive Inc. announced a new range of color PC products on Monday, Nov. 5, starting with the popular series of R.A.T. mice.

The company's R.A.T. mice for gamers are no available for pre-order in three new eye-catching colors in addition to the standard matte-black. Gamers will not be able to pick up the full range of R.A.T. mice - R.A.T.3, R.A.T.5, R.A.T.7, R.A.T.7, and M.M.O.7 - in gloss-red, gloss-white, and gloss-black colors, as the company aims to provide a fashionable alternative for a unique gaming experience.

"Gamers continue to respond enthusiastically to our range of professional PC products, and we believe that the new range of colors will prove popular with passionate gamers," said Mad Catz Interactive Inc. President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Darren Richardson.

Aside from the new color options, the R.A.T. Series of gaming mice from Mad Catz has not been updated per se. The company did not launch any new mice, it just added options to the already existing models to ensure the gaming peripherals are aesthetically compatible with the wide variety of monitors and desktops currently available on the market.

The new color options do not bring any price modification to the lineup. Then again, the Mad Catz gaming mice were never cheap to begin with, so for gaming enthusiast it likely wouldn't have made much of a difference if they did.

The R.A.T.3 model has an optical sensor, 3,500 DPI, DPI Switch, a 500Hz report rate, 1.5 m/s tracking speed, 20G acceleration, three programmable buttons, and three modes. It charges via USB and comes with a $59.99 price tag.

The R.A.T.5 gaming mouse goes up to $69.99, has a laser sensor, 5,600 DPI, DPI Switch, 1,000Hz report rate, 6 m/s tracking speed, 50G acceleration, six programmable buttons, three modes. It also has adjustable length and charges via USB.

The R.A.T.7 laser model comes in at $99.99, has 6,400 DPI, DPI Switch, 1,000Hz report rate, 6 m/s tracking speed, 50G acceleration, six programmable buttons, three modes, and charges via USB as well. It also comes with adjustable length and thumb area, and additional pinkie grips and palm rests.

Lastly, the most expensive one in the bunch is the R.A.T.9 wireless gaming mouse, which comes with a $149.99 price tag. This laser mouse has 6,400 DPI, DPI Switch, 1,000Hz report rate, 6 m/s tracking speed, 50G acceleration, six programmable buttons, three modes, and has rechargeable lithium batteries. It also sports adjustable length and thumb area and additional pinkie grips and palm rests.

The Mad Catz gaming mice are now available for pre-order in the new color options from Mad Catz' GameShark store.
