Posted on September 24, 2010, Shawn Sines MadCatz Reponds to Sony PS3 Update Problems

Last week’s PlayStation 3 Firmware update had an impact on a limited number of peripherals that made them stop working. Sony of course issued a statement that it did not support unlicensed or pirate hardware. Well, apparently there were reports that some MadCatz PS3 add ons were also effected. Today, MadCatz issued a formal response and approach to the situation:

Over the last 24 hours, various media outlets have reported on issues gamers are experiencing after downloading and installing the new ‘3.50’ Firmware for their PlayStation 3 video game systems.

Mad Catz would like to take this opportunity to put gamers’ minds at ease.  With the exception of a small quantity of controllers sold before 2008, we believe that all Mad Catz products will continue to function as they did prior to the 3.50 Firmware update including high profile products such as our range of Street Fighter IV™ FightSticks and Wireless FightPads; our range of controllers and accessories for Call of Duty®; our Cyborg F.L.Y. 9 Wireless FlightStick; our wired and wireless control pads; and our range of Rock Band™ accessories.

Any consumer who owns a Mad Catz product and is experiencing an issue, including an issue with the PlayStation 3 Firmware update should contact Mad Catz customer services.  Providing the product is within warranty, Mad Catz will be happy to offer a suitable replacement.
