E3 Expo 2012 – SteelSeries Booth Tour
This year at E3 2012, our good friends at SteelSeries invited us to a sneak-peak at some of their upcoming PC peripherals that we can expect for 2012-2013. Even before we got to the meeting room, we could see that the SteelSeries “footprint” was almost everywhere you looked – especially at the Wargaming booth where SteelSeries keyboards, mice, and headsets were on every PC rig on the floor.
VP and Chief Marketing Officer Kim Rom gave us a tour of the booth and brought out some toys to play with – SteelSeries World of Warcraft Wireless Mouse, Guild Wars 2 Headset, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Mouse, SteelSeries Dota 2 Kana Mouse, and SteelSeries Sensei MLG Edition Mouse. Quite a collection for an expo that is supposed to feature next-gen software!
Besides the video from above, here is a quick tour of the hardware that SteelSeries is featuring for 2012:
The SteelSeries Sensei Pro Grade Laser Mouse: MLG edition is a special version based on their award winning Sensei gaming mouse.
The MLG community chose the surface and skin colors and it has 3 different illumination zones with 16.8 million different color options. The Sensei will go on pre-order this weekend as MLG will be hosted in Anaheim down the road. The MLG Sensei is equipped with a 32 bit ARM Processor and an on-mouse LCD menu for tons of customization. The mouse also features a double braided cord and advanced macro software for the 8 buttons and should retail for under $100.
Kim also showed us the prototype of the World of Warcraft Wireless mouse. This wireless mouse was designed and built specifically for World of Warcraft as well as other MMO’s. This mouse features 11 programmable buttons and the ability to plug in for wired connection. The programmable buttons can also be reprogrammed through World of Warcraft’s player interface on a PC. It will be available later on this year so we expect to see some more tweaks and refinements before it hits the streets.
It looks like SteelSeries is continuing to set the pace when it comes to Pro Grade and Tournament-ready peripherals.
