Steelseries Unveils New World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Gaming Mouse

Steelseries already has the license for the original SteelSeries Special-Edition World of Warcraft Mouse, and while the mouse looks really sharp, it got somewhat mediocre reviews from users and the gaming community for being more flash than substance.

Even so, the mouse was fairly popular, especially with World of Warcraft players looking for gear that reflect our collective favorite hobby. Now, Steelseries is at it again with an updated version of the mouse for Cataclysm, the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Special Edition MMO Gaming Mouse.

The new model features an updated optical sensor on the underside and a redesigned button layout that still gives you 14 programmable buttons, and with 10 programmable profiles that each have their own color – that way you can tell at a glance at the mouse which profile is active. Perfect if you want to program different buttons to different character macros.

Admittedly, the new mouse looks really sharp, but it’ll take a pretty solid effort for Steelseries to overcome the last one and to make a dent in the love that a lot of people have for Logitech’s gaming mice and even Razer’s Naga MMO gaming mouse, which sports over a dozen number buttons on the side just for MMO players.

Oh – it’s worth mentioning that Blizzcon attendees will be able to score one of these long before the rest of us – it’ll be up in the Blizzard store at the con. The rest of us will have to wait for December 7th, when the mouse will show up on store shelves…right next to copies of Cataclysm, no doubt.
