Ok, straight from the horses mouth I guess.I thought that Mad Catz press release mentioned April, but maybe not.
Yes, that's correct - we hadn't really officially announced a release
date yet. The latest press release mentioned an "expected" launch
during May but certainly nothing as early as April; I guess the internet
rumour mill has been at work, turning supposition into fact!
We've been working hard to get the mice just right, also utilising
feedback from our external beta testers and we now expect to have the
mice out during June. We want to make sure the mice are up to the
standard we (and you!) expect before we send them out into the wide
world, so that extra bit of time should help us make sure that is the

it's just a mouse guys...though it does look interesting..
it may be just a mouse....but take a look at the wirelss offerings right now... not too much. the mamba is still plagued with issues. the logitech mx revolution was stupidly replaced by the performance mx.....idiots. shitty cable connection and refurbs were hitting the streets almost as soon as the retails were. obviously someone screwed up. ms mice pretty much suck so i dont even bother with them. no one else makes a decent wireless rechargeable mouse.....so it would be nice if the RAT performs as well as it looks.
most people use their mouse more than anything else on their computer. to me its just as important as a good psu or decent screens.
you can still buy the mx revolution. There are plenty of good mice on the market. And the thing is made by freaking mad catz. If their remote controllers that I bought for my N64 are anything to go by, it'll work like utter trash.

fwiw, madcatz bought saitek and started releasing pc peripherals shortly after. the rat, imo, is more saitek than madcatz
I ordered the RAT 7 again from Amazon and I got an email it would ship between July 13 - 17. So, I guess it's delayed some more. Mad Catz better get their act together. I did see that Best Buy has their Eclipse Wireless keyboard. Looks pretty cool.
