SteelSeries WoW peripheral

Computer gaming peripherals maker SteelSeries has introduced two new World of Warcraft-edition products, the MMO Gaming Mouse and Zboard Limited Edition (Wrath of the Lich King, or WotLK) keyboard. The mouse can seemingly act as a keyboard replacement during gameplay, as it features 15 buttons that can be assigned to various shortcut operations in the game and reprogrammed again for everyday computing use. SteelSeries worked with World of Warcraft creators Blizzard Entertainment on both products, which are officially licensed. The mouse lights up in what SteelSeries claims is a choice of 16 million colors selectable by the user, and there are three intensity and pulsation level settings.

The mouse is able to macro up to 160 characters, and there are more than 130 predefined commands for drag-and-drop macro creation.

The SteelSeries Zboard Limited Edition (WotLK) keyboard includes a removable keyset, in this case specially designed for WoW, with graphics to match in addition to a standard keypad. The keyboard allows for seven simultaneous keystrokes for anti-ghosting, and has one-touch macros for raiding and PvP gameplay. The keyboard connects to computers and acts as a USB extender via an internal hub with two USB ports. Via the SteelSeries Z Engine software, users can program each key as they see fit.

Both products are available to pre-order from Steel Series webstore now, with shipping dates set for November 13. The mouse is priced at nearly $90, while the keyboard is priced at about $65. [via CrunchGear]
