When is the release date? So when exactly is this thing being released? I've tried contacting Mad Catz/Saitek about it and they don't bother responding. Anyone have an idea of when it will be released?
Madcatz had a press release the RAT7's started shippping from the manufacturer on June 8th to retailer and they listed the the retailers as Amazon, Gamestop (Online purchase only), and Bestbuy. Amazon is the only one that has a 1 week to 4 weeks ship date listed and Gamestop as another poster said has a July 1st ship preorder, and Bestbuy has no clue about it I even asked a manager to see if it was in the system and nothing there. I am itching to buy so right now I am on the fence...buy from Amazon right now or wait and buy at Bestbuy with 10% off coupon and $5 or $10 rewardzone points certificates or wait for Newegg to get it and buy with free shipping and no taxes if I ship to NY.
