At CES 2015 this week Mad Catz has taken the opportunity to unveil their new LYNX 9 Mobile Hybrid Controller, that will be launching later this year hopefully around March 2015 throughout the US priced at $300.
The Batman-esque gadget is a foldable controller that is capable of providing a number of functions including the ability to be positioned on either side of your smartphone or tablet to provide physical gaming controls and extra precision whilst battling your favourite foes.
