Wii U accessories
It was only a matter of time before third party accessory makers started unveiling their Wii U toys, and Mad Catz has officially kicked off the Wii U accessory wars. The company revealed several types of accessories here at E3, including a screen protector and a stand for the GamePad, and a stand for Wiimotes as well (Wii U supports Wiimotes and other Wii controllers– don’t you forget that). Mad Catz will offer the new toys at launch, and will also introduce a new gaming headset which will fit the Wii U as well. Over the coming months, third party makers are likely to start unveiling their Wii U accessories as we get closer to launch. We have some photos of the new Mad Catz products after the break.

    Better be a good headset because the cheap shit of the wii headset!!!

    • Chris

      Don’t need one, the Wii U Game Pad has a built in speakers and mic, also you can plug in a pair of your own headphones.

      • alienfish

        As long as the mic is good on the controller it should be fine, but do the pro controllers have mics? I’m probably going to want to use a headset if I’m using a pro controller and even then I might still want to use a headset (when I say headset I mean full sized) for the touch controller so I can hear things better. This issue concerns me and I really hope Nintendo is paying attention to these needs.

        Yes, the fact that you can put in your own headset is super win!

        wait so i can use my old delta turtle beaches or my black ops 2 turtle beaches i pre ordered?

      • Trollolguy

        You guys don’t us your brains! If the Wii U Gamepad has the built in microphone to use for First Person Shooting games such as “COD”, it will be ridiculously annoying because as you talk with the speaker, you will hear every kind of button press coming from the gamepad controls! And the gamepad doesn’t have a headphone jack, and why should it? It’s a gamepad controller people! We don’t need no headphone jack! The gamepad is not a smartphone or a Ipad, so don’t think of ridiculous things and post it on this Website.

      Great idea from Catz now I hope that Zagg release and HD invisible shield for it . That shield can take a beating and keep on ticking 😀

  • Ben

    It looks like the screenprotector also could be used as a small stand.
