The announcement that HP and Steelseries had partnered together to bring HP back into the gaming scene it had recently vacated raised some eyebrows. HP has always been on the computer hardware side of things while Steelseries has been a premier gaming peripheral dealer for a while now. What does this mean for the gaming mouse community? It means the announcement of the Omen Gaming Mouse.
I quick breakdown of the mouse that is set to hit the shelves late fall shows a lower price point at $59.99. At this price point, it will not make our best cheap gaming mouse list but will be affordable for most gamings.
Little specific features about the mouse were released, but the statement read “Pixel-perfect movement: Extreme precision with zero hardware acceleration, true 1:1 tracking, and best-in-class CPI adjustments. Relentlessly engineered: Proprietary SteelSeries switches maintain their tactile feel for over 30 million clicks. Lighting at your fingertips: Intelligent RGB illumination, capable of 16.8 million colors, gives you nearly limitless customization.”
A Steelseries mouse has made our best gaming mouse for League of Legends list (http://gamingmouseguru.com/the-top-5-gaming-mouses-for-league-of-legends), and they look to be following up the success of the SteelSeries Sensei Laser Gaming Mouse with the Omen. We are excited to see what SteelSeries can do now with a major financial backer in their pockets.
