Microsoft SideWinder X8 Mouse now out

Microsoft’s SideWinder X8 mouse is finally available in store shelves this week, and you’re able to take advantage of Microsoft’s BlueTrack Technology for best-in-class performance. While most gaming enthusiasts still believe that going wireless is a big no-no when it comes to professional gaming, we must admit that a mouse sans wires is just way more attractive, although there is the teeny problem of a battery life in the long run. What you get with the X8 includes the best frame rate, speed and acceleration on the market and a tracking range from 250 dots per inch (dpi) to 4,000 dpi. A single charge is able to last for up to 30 hours of active gaming, and you can also rely on the play-and-charge cable as another ingenious option. The SideWinder X8 Mouse will retail for $99.95 a pop.
