Razer Treats MMO Players with Naga Mouse and Megasome Mousepad

Gaming hardware specialist Razer announced two products designed for the MMORPG crowd. The Naga MMO mouse, and the extra-large Megasome mouse-pad to go with it. To begin with, Naga boards of a 12-button thumb-pad that lets you assign as many as 12 macros apart from this, the upper thumb are has two buttons next to the mouse’s main buttons, and four-way scroll-wheel. Under its hood is a 5600 dpi 3.5g Laser sensor. With the Ultrapolling feature, the mouse ensures a high polling rate for its USB interface, boosting accuracy, with a response time of 1 ms. The mouse lets you use game-specific addon packs (that probably come with pre-defined button profiles that work well for most players). The software allows you to store unlimited character profiles. Measuring approximately 116L x 69W x 41.6H mm, Naga is an upper-mid-sized mouse. Razer will start selling these for around US $80 soon.

As its sidekick is the Megasome white gaming mouse-pad. It comes in an extra-large size of 350 x 230 x 2 mm, and makes use of a silicone mat for just the right traction. The surface is white fluorescent for an ambient glow. It is expected to be priced at $50. Videos related to the two products titled Razer Naga key binding and add ons in-game configuration, and Razer Naga Introduction Video can be watched on YouTube.

Conveniently positioned so that you activate 18 different macros when you go to move the mouse! :shadedshu

Give up Razer, go back to making simple, but good, gaming mice.

Mamba scroll wheel and DPI + a b!tch-load of macros and wired connectivity at a lower cost. If Razer built this thing right it'll be a huge success, otherwise I have my eggs ready.

As for the mouse pad... think I'll get more eggs and maybe some toilet paper.

interesting for starcraft II.

Not the best for modern warfare 2 and battlefield bad company 2

I have the mamba with destructor mouse pad too, gives me 10% plus of precision.

I prefer my standard 5 button mouse. I cant stand a mouse without buttons 4 & 5 for my thumb. those 5 buttons plus shift and control and I now have 15. plenty...

Interesting, would be something I would actually have to have in my hands to see if I would really like it.

So Razor have finally made a mouse with macro keys...a little overkill really considering a quality gaming keyboard has macro keys coming out its ass anyway. :shadedshu


I see little point in this...maybe if you spend your entire day on some popular (no names) MMORG then this is for you. :nutkick:

Interesting. I'd have to see how it feels before nay saying it tho. I bet it could be kick ass, if they designed it right.

Sweet for FPS??


Yeah, I can see why you'd need your main weapon and pistol bound to 8 different keys and the rest of your kit bound to the other side buttons. :roll:


I doubt this would work very well at all for FPS...I'm sure someone will like it but I still see no point in this when even the cheapest gaming keyboards usually allow for macros and the more expensive ones allowing for even more.

5600 dpi and 12 programmable buttons. I was thinking, "they must be asking a fortune for this one, knowing Razer and stuff"..

80 bucks seemed ok for it.. was thinking theyre gonna ask a hundred or so for it.

The design seemed right imo. Widening the right palm side so that the user would depend on it for traction, lessening the grip need on the left side to minimize accidental button pressing.

Foursome!

And in the words of the Unreal Tournament announcer:
MEGASOME!!!
