SteelSeries Announces Gaming Mouse Optimized for MLG

By - Source: SteeSeries | B 12 comments

SteelSeries launched a version of its Sensei gaming mouse that has been optimized for gaming in the competitive video game league Major League Gaming (MLG).

The package includes a 32-bit ARM processor, and resolution capability of up to 8,200 CPI and 16,400 DCPI. The processor is powerful enough to run certain calculations directly in the mouse, SteelSeries said. Also supported is a driverless setup (useful at tournament computers, for example) via an on-mouse LCD display and menu.

There are plenty of customization features too, including three areas of illumination with 16.8 million color options to choose from and four grades of illuminating pulsation. The SteelSeries Engine software suite allows for further customization and "extended" programmability, the manufacturer said.

The SteelSeries Sensei MLG Edition will be shown first at the MLG Spring Championship in Anaheim,which takes place from June 8 to 10. Commercial products are scheduled to be shipping in August for $100.

    o_tipper_xIts kind of sad to see MLG shift from what it started as (console gaming) to more PC gaming. PC games are fun but IMO not as much as console.

    I think you offer a very unique perspective based on what I've read here in the forums.

    I like the idea of an onboard processor. Usually I despise "Gaming Mice" since they just have ton of useless buttons (for me anyway). But something like this, which may reduce lag, is always welcome.

    Cy-KillWhat is CPI & DCPI?

    CPI == Counts Per Inch
    DCPI == Double CPI

    Anything inside the DCPI range is interpolated and should be avoided.

    Well Console vs. PC is a long running argument. I am mainly a PC gamer but there are some console games that I enjoy. But back to the article the mouse looks good and sounds good but the price is gonna be insanely high.

    way... too much dpi! though I had a very high one on my mouse... anyways... if they can fit a arm processor into a mouse for gaming or a usb stick, probably you could run an os off of that mouse and make a real slick pc out of it..

    Maybe they put the PC components in the keyboard and mouse (But only if they made them up-gradable like the towers we all adore)!

    I love steel series mice. I tried every mouse in a Best Buy to decide I liked steel series the most and then bought it from new egg (sorry Best Buy).

    Honestly, MLG "branded" items are TOO EXPENSIVE. I'll admit they do perform greatly, but they are priced a bit high. I still don't think it was worth it to drop $250 for my Astro A30's.
