Anaheim (CA) – SteelSeries demoed its upcoming World of Warcraft mouse at this past weekend’s Blizzcon convention in Anaheim. The rugged-looking, scaly, mouse has more than a dozen buttons and can pulse light in more than 16 million colors. Hard-core WoW players can create macros of up to 160 characters for each button. To ease macro creation, SteelSeries has included 130 predefined commands.
SteelSeries is aiming to launch this mouse next month, just in time for the Wrath of the Lich King expansion release. The mouse is available on pre-order for $100.
$100 is definitely expensive for a mouse, but it might be worth it for the macro creation alone. However, most World of Warcraft players I know use the keyboard more than the mouse.
