Mad Catz' new controller looks like a Michael Bay Decepticon


And it's as expensive as one too

I can't look away from Mad Catz' new controller for Android devices and PC. I just can't.

The L.Y.N.X. 9 is meant to "offer a premium [see: $299.99; yes, really] gaming experience in almost any situation," though it's primarily geared toward mobile gaming with its transforming design.

The gamepad can morph to dock a phone or tablet, hence its ugly yet practical appearance, and there's also a full QWERTY keyboard attachment. The L.Y.N.X. works with Windows 7/8/8.1 and can link your Android device of choice to a television via an included cable, if you'd like.

Have to wonder how big the market for this sort of thing is. Ships in March.
