MadCatz teases GameSmart peripherals: hardware that plays nice with multiple devices

MadCatz isn’t ready to divulge all it has in store for CES, but it’s given us a taste of what’s to come by teasing its new GameSmart initiative, which offers an alternative to futzing with a cornucopia of device-specific peripherals. Hardware carrying the GameSmart moniker uses Bluetooth Smart tech to pair with devices ranging from smartphones to tablets — and presumably other Bluetooth-equipped hardware. The firm says it’ll include an app to add functionality to peripherals and it expects the tech will help game developers bridge differences between platforms by offering standardized controllers. Though MadCatz is waiting for CES to pull the curtains back on a raft of GameSmart gamepads, keyboards, mice and headsets, it says the hardware will launch shortly after it’s unveiled.
