As the MMO genre continues to expand, so does the options for a suitable gaming mouse designed for MMOs. The newest addition to the roster of MMO gaming peripherals comes from Aorus that has announced its Aorus Thunder M7 gaming mouse that features 16 programmable buttons.
If you have been looking for a mouse that will let you shoot the wings off of a fly, then Logitech’s G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse might be the one for you. Maximum PC’s Jimmy Thang got to see the Proteus Core, which features a 12,000DPI sensor, up close and personal at PAX East.
If your hot and heavy Diablo 3 sessions lead to sweaty palms and finger slippage, worry not: help is on the way courtesy of Thermaltake. Today, the company's Tt ESports division announced the Black Element Cyclone Edition mouse, which is an enhanced version of the basic Black Element mouse, complete with a detachable 6,000 RPM fan attached to cool down your overheated digits. No, really!
Having trouble swinging your lightsaber while simultaneously casting Force Lightning and juggling the gear you've taken from the cold, dead bodies of Sith Lords across The Old Republic? Fear not, Padawan; Mad Catz's most ridiculous mouse yet, the Cyborg MMO 7, may just be the peripheral you need to cure screen-shuffle-it is. The 13 programmable buttoned beast went up for sale today.
Gamers already have a ton of options when it comes to gaming mice -- thanks to Shogun Bros., that number just hit a ton plus one. The company claims that its newly unveiled (but not yet available) Ballista MK-1 Gaming Mouse is tailor-made to make the lives of online campers -- pardon me, online "snipers" -- more cushy than ever before with a bevy of sharpshooter-friendly features.
When it comes to gaming mice, the "Best PC Part I Ever Spent My Hard Earned Cash On Contest" proved that Maximum PC readers are gaga for R.A.T. Mice. and who can blame you? We love it too. But Logitech's not letting all the Cyborg love get in the way of their releases. The company just announced it has a mouse up its sleeve, too, in the form of the upcoming Logitech Gaming Mouse G300.
The Razer Lachesis gaming mouse originally launched in 2007, with a dramatically curved, ambidextrous design and a 4,000dpi sensor. Three years later, Razer has released a new Lachesis, which is not so much a sequel as a refinement of the original.
The most important change in Lachesis 2.0 is the 5,600dpi sensor, which puts it on par with other top-end gaming mice. We don’t usually play at such a high sensitivity, but we tested it at dpi levels across the whole spectrum and found the Lachesis responsive and reliable.
Just a few months after we awarded Logitech with a perfect score for their superb G9x mouse, they've announced the new contender for best mouse ever. The G500 is the long-awaited update to the G5 gaming mouse, taking its familiar ergonomic chassis and cramming the G9x's laser sensor into the body. The wired peripheral has a minimum resolution of 200dpi, which can be adjusted on the fly up to a whopping 5700dpi (the G9x only had a max of 5000dpi). Logitech claims that the G500 can process sensor data at a rate of 12 megapixels per second, and can detect movement as fast as 165 inches per second (as if your twitch skills are that good).
The usual gaming mice features are also present, including removable weights (range of 165 grams to 192 grams) and 10 programmable buttons. But the standout improvements are in the inclusion of a hyper-fast scroll wheel mode (for web browsing), and the relocation of the dpi adjustment buttons to the front of the mouse so you don't accidentally hit it in the middle of a game.
Hit the jump for more of our hands-on photos, but you'll be able to try the G500 yourself when it goes on sale in September for $70.
