Belkin n52te Gaming Mouse
by Mark R
Who would have ever thought that there would ever be such a huge market for gaming controllers like these? I guess no one ever thought World of Warcraft would ever take off the way it did. I never did like the controls on those MMORPG games, and it’s only natural someone made them simpler.
For example, Belkin, a company famous for tech accessories, has created the n52te, a “hybrid gamepad” with tagline of “Built for speed. Built to Dominate. Built to Destroy”. Dang! It sounds like the n52te is designed for MMORPGs, but it is also created for FPS or RTS games.
The n52te has 15 fully programmable keys that are completely customizable, so a gamer can do very quick things at the touch of a button. There is also a programmable 8-way thumb-pad with a removable joystick. The user can also easily toggle between 3 keymap states.
In short, this lets a gamer really get into the game. It appears that ergonomics were also in mind in this design. There is an adjustable soft-touch wrist pad for comfort, and nonslip rubber pads to grip in place.
All that, and it has that way cool cobalt blue backlighting, so you can play in the dark. Right now, I don’t have a release date for this product, but the price is about $69.99.
