Over at Cologne, Germany, Gamescom is going strong, and companies like Razer are not letting the time slip by without some kind of announcement. In the case of Razer, they had a doozie lined up for this conference: a 17-key mouse, that looks like some kind of futuristic toy, which is called the Naga. It's set to be used for Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) games, but as you can probably already assume, it's tailored for the largest of them all, World of Warcraft.
This USB-connected peripheral has a unique 12-button pad on the left-hand side of the mouse, lined up in a simple to use format, so that your thumb doesn't have to travel all that far to press any one of the buttons. In addition, there's the regular five buttons found on "normal" mice, which means there's some semblance of a traditional piece of hardware in there somewhere. The mouse itself isn't solely designed for MMOs, and can be used with any application that allows for button configuration of custom mouse buttons, as well as Razer's own Windows software which can be used to map a wide array of shortcuts to very specific tasks.
We'd just like to say how unique this thing looks, and, if it's not too crazy, attractive. Maybe it's just the promotional pictures, but either way, we're pulled in and can't wait for this thing to ship, whenever it ships. At this point, Razer isn't letting out anything other than "soon." But, one good thing we can take away from this, is that it won't cost you your left arm to get this peripheral. Just $80 will get you more than prepared for your next year-long campaign in WoW. Are you ready?
