Today's round-up includes positive results for peripheral and now software creator Mad Catz, and the curious case of a 4-year-old whose PlayStation addiction went a little too far. - Mad Catz's financial report for Q3 2005 has been released, and the company's performance shows marked improvement over the same period, both in the regular quarter and in the nine-month period just ended. Net sales grew from $42 million in Q3 2004 to $52.8 million in Q3 2005, and from $81.1 million over the first nine months in 2004 to $90.2 million for the same period in 2005. During the quarter, the company expanded its operations to include software production, and released its first game, a dance title for the GameCube with packed-in dance mat. - According to the Grand Rapids Metro, a 4-year-old boy in Sand Lake, MI was so intent on renting a videogame that he managed to leave the house during the night without waking his mother, then steer the family's Geo Prism down to the nearby video store, before discovering that it was closed. Police returned the boy to his home when they stopped the car, after noticing its erratic behavior on the road. The boy was apparently intending to rent a PlayStation driving game, which could account for his precocious performance at the wheel.
