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.

Looks great tbh, extra buttons on the side of the mouse is a great idea, couldn't live without mouse4 and 5 in any games i play.

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.
I like to hot key everything to my mouse like nades, the (use) key, crouch and pretty much everything else.

This is not a bad idea at all, and I'd like to see more MMO players use something similar, so that they're spending less time on the keyboard; ultimately making them faster and more accurate by using comfortable / reachable keybinds.

However it's a bit of a moot point for two reasons :

A) Nearly all MMOs use three or less combination function buttons. I.e. CTRL + XXX ; ALT + XXX; SHIFT + XXX. So really, you just need two or three mouse buttons on the sides.

B) If you use a standalone board pad, like an Ideazon Fang, then you don't ever touch your keyboard again, except to type. Between a mouse with two side buttons, and the board pad alone, you're looking at over 150+ button combinations in a generic MMO game.


Having used the Fang and similar board pads, in conjunction with a mouse, I can say that all these side buttons would get a bit uncomfortable and convulted.


None the less, there are SOME bindings that could be useful with the mouse buttons alone, so I will definately give this a try with the board pad.
