Hamburg-based gaming peripherals manufacturer, Roccat, has launched its new Roccat Kone[+] Max Customisation Gaming Mouse in the UAE.

The Roccat Kone[+] - Max Customisation Gaming Mouse features a 6000dpi Pro-Aim Laser Sensor R2 and is packed with customisation options.

"The Roccat Kone[+] is more than the sum of its parts. The successor to the award-winning Kone is the result of many years' experience in engineering and industrial design, plus extensive feedback from the gaming community. Never before has perfectly formed design and high-performance technology been so closely intertwined. A clear focus on gamers' needs has given rise to a mouse that is packed with unique innovations and an unprecedented range of customisable configuration options", said Ganesh Venugopal, head of salesfor Roccat distributor UBER Technologies.

The mouse features 10.5 megapixel resolution and a 1000Hz polling rate, with up to 30Gs of acceleration and speeds of up to 200ips (5.08m/s) without loss or lag. The Tracking and Distance Control Unit (TDCU) is now integrated in the laser sensor designed to allow the mouse to control lift-off distance as well as fine-tune the sensor to suit the Mousepad for optimal tracking.

Roccat has also made improvements to the mouse wheel and surrounding buttons, including the introduction of the EasyShift[+] Button, which is designed to allow two functions to be assigned to each button, like using the Shift key on a keyboard.

Now the eight function buttons on the mouse can control up to 22 mouse functions.

A button can also be used for the EasyAim function, which, when depressed automatically switches to a preselected DPI setting.

The EasyWheel function can be used to control the Aero Flip 3D feature in Windows 7, among other things.

The mouse has four Multicolor LEDs, enhanced lightpipes and configurable effects, designed to light up, alternate or pulsate in more than four different colours at the same time.

The Roccat Kone[+] - Max Customisation Gaming Mouse  has an accompanying Macro Manager which has predefined Macro Presets for the top 20 PC games as well as several office apps, plus the new Loop Function designed to allow users to loop macros indefinitely.

The mouse has 576KB of on-board memory, in which the user can store presets games and apps, button configurations, lighting set-ups and DPI settings, which can then be automatically loaded when a game or app is started.

The mouse also gives immediate feedback when DPI settings, profiles, the volume level or the sensitivity setting is changed and a weight system comprising 4 x 5g weights is included, allowing gamers to customise the weight to suit their preferences.

The Roccat Kone[+] is priced at approx. AED 550 ($149) and is available at all leading retail outlets.
