Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse offers button overload

Logitech has outed its latest peripheral, the G600 MMO Gaming Mouse, encrusted with buttons to give massively multiplayer online gamers plenty to keep their fingers busy. The G600 includes a total of twenty buttons, a dozen of which are clustered together into a contoured panel on the side of the mouse, and while Logitech ships them pre-programmed by default, they can be customized to any choice of function or macro.

The three profiles pre-set include two for MMOs and one expected to be used in general gaming. No special drivers are needed, either, and there's a G-Shift control to double the functionality for each key. The G600 itself has onboard key-memory, so that even if you plug it into another machine it will still have your personal settings.

All of the buttons are LED-backlit, and can be set to a choice of 16m different hues (or left to cycle through them automatically). The 6.5-foot USB cable is cloth-wrapped, which Logitech says makes it more resilient, and it's possible to change the DPI accuracy on-the-fly with up to five presets per profile.

Finally, the scrollwheel is tiltable and clickable. The Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse is available for preorder now, priced at $79.99.
