Awesome news!

Just one question: Is Astro going to stay with MLG? Or is Steelseries going to take "Over"? (Well, the article talked about mouses and keyboards, but nothing about headsets. So maybe both companies will stay?).

Is it just me or does MLG seem to be dipping their toes in too many waters. They partnered with Madcatz to make the new "mlg controller" they partnered with Astro, and now Steelseries. They are all in direct competition with headset sales, I think sometime down the road someone is going to say "HEY!!! YOU CANT HAZ EVERYONE! THEY IZ ALL AGAINST EACH OTHER"

At least thats what I'm saying now
