World of Warcraft is a pretty popular game – with over 11 million subscribed users, some people would call it a blockbuster title. Holding a massive 62 percent of the MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) market, it is the title all of the new ones, like Warhammer Online, are trying to rival. Launched by Blizzard in 2004, it is enjoying a lot of success and it is preparing for the second expansion pack, Wrath of the Lich King. Such a big user base has made the title very popular among different companies that are now seeking to associate their names with the successful MMO. We have seen quite a lot of various peripherals for Blizzard’s hit title but this latest one, from SteelSeries, the makers of the Zboards and other professional gaming equipment, takes the proverbial cake. This special WoW mouse features 15 programmable buttons for you to control your in-game character.
That’s not the only thing this quite big mouse knows. Its stylish surface can be programmed to glow in any of the 16 million colors available with various intensities for the most pleasant gaming experience. In the retail package there is also a piece of software designed with a WoW-like interface that helps you map out your buttons according to the powers of your character. It can even import your settings and preferences from the WoW Armory, a feature that will definitely spark some interest.
Although all of these things might sound overly complicated, the game already has over 130 predefined commands that you can easily drag and drop in the button slots with this software. Don’t worry if you plan to use this mmo gaming mouse in everyday activities as the buttons can be disengaged while you’re not playing the popular MMO.
In case this little peripheral sparked your interest, it will go on sale starting November 13, alongside the WoW expansion, Wrath of the Lich King. It can be yours for a pretty hefty 99.99 dollars and it is now available to pre-order on the company’s site.
