    I wonder if they'll be revisiting driver support for older Saitek equipment, I still struggle to get my flight pedals functioning properly on Windows 10.

    Nup: Mad Catz sold Saitek to Logitech before going bankrupt, so it wasn't included in the sale to the new owner.

    Be interesting to see if they still provide any support to any previous products.
    Guessing that's a typo.

    Possibly not - I'm guessing Gareth has been working on his time machine over Christmas and is obviously thinking a lot about time - it's the only explanation for this line in the same article:
    My guess is that it's Gareth's way to ensure his awesomeness in 2018: use time travel so that he can publish news before it happens :D

    As for Mad Catz themselves, it'll be interesting to see where they go from here: whether the new owners are going to build and improve on Mad Catz' previous products or if they're just going to rehash the same old designs.

    Right, both fixed.

    Gawd, if I had a time machine I'd go back and put a few grand into Bitcoin in the early days, then... Well, there's no step two. That's it; set for life.

    :( That's no good, Logitech don't appear to have done anything with drivers/software for older Saitek gear... I may just have to get rid of my pedals.

    The mad catz TE MMO is the only driver I haven't got installed on my PC after a reinstall. I wonder if they will support older products, I purchased last January.

    Outside the Saitek stuff, the only MadCatz device that's ever looks really interesting is the Lynx 9 crazy folding transformable controlpad thing. With the crippling flaw of costing £200 and being made by MadCatz.
