Hey, here’s a question for you: when is a controller not a controller?

It’s not a trick question, I have the answer for you but we’ll come to that in a moment. How many folks reading this blog received a new smart device for the Holidays? Was it the latest phone or perhaps a new tablet? Maybe you received a new laptop instead, or perhaps a media streaming box that also plays games?

Fact is, millions of you received a shiny new gadget from Santa and it’s truly incredible just how capable today’s smart devices are at playing games. We’re talking about power that rivals traditional home consoles, and already, millions of us are turning to our smart devices as our primary source of gaming. The only thing missing is a true console-quality controller to power all the devices we’re playing games on today.

Traditionally, controllers for mobile devices are inevitably compromised. They’re either small enough to carry but uncomfortable for long gaming sessions, or they offer full size console like control which doesn’t make a heck of a lot of sense when it comes to travel. So, when is a controller not a controller? When it’s a hybrid. We proudly introduce the L.Y.N.X.9 Mobile Hybrid Controller from Mad Catz!

It’s safe to say, you’ve never seen a controller like this before. Designed from the ground up to offer a revolutionary gaming experience for the modern gamer, the L.Y.N.X.9 is compact enough to fit in your jacket pocket yet magically transforms and expands to offer a no-compromise, full size controller experience when you’re ready to game. Oh, and it will work with pretty much anything.

Too good to be true? We’re just getting started! The L.Y.N.X.9 adapts to fit whatever device you’re using. Attach your Android smartphone to the flip mount for gaming on your morning commute or link up via Bluetooth to your PC rig at work. When you get home, L.Y.N.X.9 can seamlessly link to M.O.J.O. or your media streaming box for gaming on the big screen, and if you want to play the latest titles on your tablet, well, L.Y.N.X.9 has you covered for that scenario as well! Shipping with a tablet mount, the L.Y.N.X.9 breaks apart to three lead components (Left and Right Wings and ‘Brain’), allowing you to transform your tablet into the ultimate in portable gaming!

The hybrid nature of L.Y.N.X.9 isn’t just a gimmick. The controller ships with a keyboard module that snaps into the bottom of your pad and allows you to answer email, or keep up to date with social media. If you’re surfing online, L.Y.N.X.9 even features a track pad module, mimicking the actions of a mouse and allowing you to navigate the net with ease! Heck, it even features an in-built mic so you can access voice commands on your device!

L.Y.N.X.9 is designed for the gamer who refuses to compromise. The gamer who plays wherever and whenever and wants to use the best at all times.

We say again, you’ve never seen a controller like this before. No one has, it’s a whole new world in play and Mad Catz are leading the way in control!
