Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. (AMEX/TSX: MCZ), a leading third-party interactive entertainment accessory provider, announced today that its critically acclaimed Cyborg branded R.A.T.7 gaming mouse has been crowned as the ?Worlds Most Customizable Mouse? by the esteemed Guinness World Records? organization.

For over fifty years, Guinness World Records has been the global leader in the monitoring, ratification and publication of record-breaking facts where their team works year round to maintain their high-standards in record-breaking verification establishing Guinness World Records as one of the world?s best loved brands.

Appealing to young and old alike and inspiring generation after generation to be the very best that they can, Guinness World Records is truly unique, both as a company and a brand.

The hard backed ?Gamers Edition? of the Guinness World Record annual has fast established itself as a seasonal favorite amongst gamers everywhere. In the 2011 edition, the Cyborg R.A.T.7 was awarded with the title of ?World?s Most Customizable Mouse? with the publication commenting, ?With a total of 1,344 different physical configurations in addition to its customizable driver software, the Cyborg R.A.T.7 is the most adaptable input device of its kind.? The publication then went on to proclaim the R.A.T.7 as, ?Perfect for pro-gamers?.

The endorsement by the Guinness World Records? organization comes just weeks after IGN?, (arguably the worlds leading online videogame resource), awarded the Cyborg R.A.T.7 with their ?PC Hardware of 2010? award.

Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz commented, ?To be recognized by Guinness World Records is indeed an honor. Coming so soon after our IGN award is an achievement in itself and we look forward with great anticipation to what we believe will be a highly successful year ahead for the Cyborg brand.?

Gaz Deaves, Gaming Editor for Guinness World Records commented, ?We consider all kinds of amazing achievements from across the gaming world for inclusion in the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition, and sometimes that means calculating all the possible configurations of a mouse. The record is based on the total number of physical states that are provably different and can be counted; and doesn?t include software customisation features in the count.?

The Mad Catz Cyborg branded R.A.T.7 professional gaming mouse is available at Mad Catz?s online store at http://store.gameshark.com/ as well as many leading retailers with an MSRP of $99.99.
