Logitech’s G600 MMO Gaming Mouse has landed in Australia, and it is “a highly customizable and easy-to-use mouse specifically designed for massively multiplayer online (MMO) gamers”.
Featuring a whopping 20 buttons, which includes “12 thumb buttons, set in two groups of six on a meticulously designed thumb panel”, Logitech says they’re all positioned for “easy reach for quick and easy no-look navigation and faster game play”.
Set up for “optimal use right out of the box”, without needing any drivers, the G600 has three default profiles, two being specifically set up for MMOs and a third for “general gaming”.
There’s also a “G-Shift function that easily doubles the number of actions you can perform with any button, giving you complete control in your favourite MMOs”, alongside programmable keys that let you “create your own commands” which can be stored in the mouse’s onboard memory!
Mark Starrett, Logitech’s senior global product manager stated that: “The Logitech G600 MMO Gaming Mouse is the result of intense, direct testing with experienced MMO gamers.
“Countless hours of research went into the design of our thumb panel to make sure that it is as comfortable and easy to use as possible. And people will feel the difference in the buttons – they’re sculpted to help reduce click fatigue and miss-clicks so you can play with greater precision for as long as you want.”
The thumb panel even has RGB illumination that is “fully customisable with more than 16 million possible colour combinations that you can use to easily identify the active on-board profile”, with lights that can be set to “glow continuously, pulse on and off, continuously cycle, or dim after a user-determined period of inactivity”.
Hal Hanlin, producer of Rift stated that: “This Logitech mouse is one of the best out there – and not just because they incorporated our feedback into the design. There are so many abilities to keep track of in Rift, the difference between defeating a zone event or winding up at the graveyard can come down to seconds. Having all those G-Keys at your fingertips gives you an advantage.”
On sale now at JB Hi-Fi, Dick Smith and EB Games, the G600 is priced like a high-end game at AUD $99.95.
