Optical version of Kone Pure gaming mouse now available
Roccat has announced the launch of an optical version of its Kone Pure gaming mouse, as well as a reissue of its Sense mousepad.

The Pro-Optic sensor is fully adjustable with a max DPI setting of 4,000. Meanwhile, the reissued Sense mousepad is the same 400 x 280mm pad, but now features a new Meteor Blue design. Both products are available from Roccat's website with the Kone Pure Optical retailing for $70 and the Sense Meteor selling for $20.
