G.L.I.D.E.TE Gaming Surface Shipping Now


Mad Catz announced today the shipping of the G.L.I.D.E.TE Gaming Surface. Part of the Company’s Tournament Edition range of high performance gaming products, the G.L.I.D.ETE has been designed in conjunction with e-sports athletes to deliver a competitive edge when gaming at a professional level.

The highest performance Gaming Surface ever created by Mad Catz, the G.L.I.D.E.TE provides significantly improved tracking performance than the previous best performing Mad Catz Gaming Surface, and is equally efficient with both laser and traditional optical sensors.

Larger than many leading gaming surfaces to accommodate FPS gamers, the G.L.I.D.E.TE provides a substantial playing area, ideal for those who favor broad in-game movement. The G.L.I.D.E.TE utilizes a new production method with the contact surface bonded directly to the silicone base.  This meticulous method of construction creates an edgeless surface and an end to frayed edges, a common issue with gaming surfaces.

Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. stated:

“The gaming surface chosen by the gamer can be the difference between winning and losing, and we have designed the G.L.I.D.E.TE to cater directly to the needs of the competitive gaming community.  The G.L.I.D.E.TE joins the recently announced F.R.E.Q.TEto provide an entire suite of gaming products aimed at the rapidly expanding e-sports community and we look forward to the range making a significant contribution to sales in 2015.”

Designed for easy transport to LAN events, the G.L.I.D.E.TE is water resistant, allowing gamers to safely clean the Gaming Surface and be back to optimal performance within minutes.  Immune from curl, gamers can roll up their Gaming Surface when travelling, laying it out completely flat when it’s ready to compete.
