Yup... if not Mad Catz, then I will be getting all my rechargeable accessories in order for the WiiU. Plus my Nyko rechargeable Wiimote batteries are starting to wane in battery life.

they should make an arcade stick for fighting games, like they did with super streetfighter 4 for the wii U.

Mmm, yeah... I've never had any luck in the past with Madcatz controllers or accessories, but it seems they've improved quality a little bit.

Oh no... All the mad catz stuff I have bought has broken is some way on me, save for my GameCube memory card. Fortunately, nothing seems like it is electronic, so maybe it'll be better.
