Mad Catz announces new office in Japan

"Mad Catz Interactive, Inc. announced today the establishment of Mad Catz Co., Ltd, a new subsidiary located in Tokyo, Japan focused on sales, marketing and product development." (Press Release)

Many people will probably ignore this, but this's an important news. Mad Catz already have a distributor in Japan, but apparently their products aren't easy to find here. I often see (Japanese) people ask where to get one when they talk about arcade sticks. If you look at Japan's Amazon, which is like the only hope for many people, you'll see that it's either out of stock or overpriced ones sold by third party. Some are used, but sold in a price of new.

The new office not only means that the players will be able to get their controllers easier or cheaper. Lots of fans saw Team Mad Catz T-shirt on the streams and want one. This should mean they have a place to buy now.
