The DWS offers wireless connectivity via 2.4 GHz RF and Bluetooth 5.0, and a 16,000 dpi optical sensor. Like its predecessors in the RAT range, the DWS has an adjustable palm rest and the sides move. And it has a scroll wheel on the side – it’s not a pretty mouse, but FPS gamers will appreciate how easy it is to switch weapons with the DWS.
Wired BAT 6+, announced today at CES, goes a step further with Mad Catz’s new Cyborg Engine software. It should offer tighter gaming integration, as well as plenty of lighting effects. The BAT 6 is much sleeker than the DWS, with the company claiming the design was inspired by “spaceships, hypercars and batmobiles”. While not that different from most gaming mice on the market, its slimmer design means it’s ambidextrous, so left-handed people will find it comfortable, and it can easily accommodate different grips of the mouse, claw on fingertip.
Both mice are expected to ship next month, though the company hasn’t revealed pricing for either model.
