Microsoft Announces $30 Halo-Themed MouseFri, Aug 01, 2014 - 2:22 PM
Microsoft recently announced the limited-edition Halo-themed Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500. It looks like Microsoft has just re-skinned the existing Mobile Mouse 3500 that normally sells for $15.99 shipped on Amazon and are selling it for $30. So, for an extra $14 you can get the Mobile Mouse 3500 decked out with Master Chief himself. The funny thing is that the new, limited-edition version the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 isn’t really gaming oriented. That shouldn’t be a big deal though as there isn’t a Windows version of Halo! This product is just for the console game fans that want to show their support for Halo when on the PC.
“It features a battery life of up to eight months and BlueTrack Technology, so you can play, browse and work on virtually any surface. Now fans can show off their passion for the Halo saga and bring the video game icon from their living room and take the Master Chief with them almost anywhere. Stepping right out of the Halo universe, the design features the Master Chief’s MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor and captures every detail you know from the game with screen accurate detail from Chief’s two-tone green armor to his iconic gold hued visor. This Limited Edition design will appeal to longtime fans as well as newcomers and is a must-have addition to any fans’ collection of Halo memorabilia”, says Microsoft.
The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Halo Limited Edition: The Master Chief goes on sale in October under part number GMF-00413. The mouse can be pre-ordered now through GameStop for $29.99. When it launches, it will also be available through the Microsoft Store and other retailers. It is clear that Microsoft is releasing this mouse to celebrate the release of Halo: The Master Chief Collection for Xbox One.
