Mad Catz reveals a refreshed model of their S.U.R.F.r game controller for Samsung’s flagship phones

Back in January Mad Catz announced that they had become part of the Designed for Samsung program. As you are probably guessing, this program is all about designing peripherals and other devices for use with Samsung products, and in the case of Mad Catz, this is mainly game controllers. While at MWC 2016, Mad Catz unveiled a refreshed version of their S.U.R.F.r game controller and mobile keypad designed specifically for Samsung’s new flagship phones, the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.

During CES 2015 Mad Catz announced the L.Y.N.X.9 mobile game controller which transformed into something that would fit into your pocket, yet is also a full-sized game controller. It also had an attachment which was a keyboard, and three different modes depending on what you wanted to use it for – Mobile game mode, PC mode, multimedia mode. What Mad Catz has done is taken those features and created two separate products for those of you who want one or the other, not both.

One thing there is plenty of at CES every year are headsets, whether the full headband style (with or without mics) or the ear bud kind, there is always a ton of headsets to check out. Most of these are geared towards listening to music and watching video on your smartphone or tablet. However there is also the occasional mobile gaming-centric headset to be found and one of those happens to be Mad Catz’s other announcement.
