Right, now I’m not a WoW player, I just don’t have the time, what with being a busy rock star and all, but a friend in my flat does play it…A LOT.
I have often sat and watched him play whilst we’re chatting or having a beer or two, and the amount of buttons and functions he has slaved to the many, many keyboard keys seems like a hell of a lot of hassle.
Now, SteelSeries has officially announced their World of Warcraft: MMO Gaming Mouse: Legendary edition, and it certainly looks legendary!
This legendary piece of hardware has 11 buttons that you can map to whatever functions you desire.
SteelSeries is stating that be you a new user or an old hand with WoW, this mouse will enhance your game play. The mouse has been designed to be as comfortable as possible for hours and hours of dungeon raiding.
The mouse has also been co-designed by Blizzard themselves, which is where the 11 buttons come in. If Blizzard, you know the guys that created WoW, has signed off on it as being a better way of playing, then there must be something to it! In addition, you can even configure your mouse settings directly from the WoW interface. Now if that’s not customizable, I don’t know what is!
OK, the technical stuff.
The mouse is compatible with Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7 and Mac OS X. It runs at 3,600 frames per second and weighs just 115 grams (that’s just 0.25lbs to you lot over the pond).
So there it is, a pretty damned nice piece of kit. If you want to see the full specs and to see it in more shiny glory, head on over to the Steel Series blog.
