Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (“Mad Catz”) (NYSE MKT: MCZ) today announced its
GameSmart™ products will be compatible with NVIDIA^® Tegra^®-powered mobile

that also offer special features and enhanced gameplay not found in the
standard versions.

to the console living room or PC gaming experience. By adding Tegra
compatibility to our GameSmart control products, we can provide an enhanced
and optimized gaming experience to TegraZone gamers,” said Darren Richardson,
the President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. “We
are excited to be working closely with NVIDIA and believe it fits perfectly
with our long-term strategy of designing innovative products for passionate
gamers.”

battery life and designed to enhance the core gaming experience on smart
