WOW mouse took two years to make

Blizzard helped craft €90 dream machine.

Blizzard and SteelSeries' spent two years making the new World of Warcraft: Cataclysm MMO Gaming Mouse.

Apparently the slitted glowing design "evokes" the armour of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm villain Deathwing the Destroyer.

How much does it cost? €90.

But that's because it has 14 buttons, "fine tuned ergonomics", 16-million colour illumination options, four pulsation levels, up to 5040 DPI/CPI and a lift distance of up to 5mm. Incredible.

You can also store a WOW character profile directly to the mouse and a further nine in the software.

What's more, you get 2.5 metres of braided nylon cable with it.

SteelSeries' CEO Bruce Hawver said the new mouse was created using feedback from "thousands" of WOW players - "both Horde and Alliance".

"For two years, our R&D team worked hard with Blizzard Entertainment to incorporate the great feedback and to enhance the mouse technology and game integration," he said. The result is a "more comfortable, intuitive and ultimately better experience".
