SteelSeries Announces New Sensei MLG Edition

/ Jul 28th, 2012 No Comments

SteelSeries Sensei MLG Edition

For those of you who understand the difference that a well crafted mouse can have on their gaming experience, SteelSeries has announced the Major League Gaming edition of their Sensei mouse. The MLG Sensei will be available in August for $99.99 / €99.99 MSRP. If you’re familiar with the Sensei, all of the original features still remain, such as the 7 programmable buttons, 10.8-megapixel sensor, and LCD display. The new addition is a double CPI feature that will allow you to adjust the mouse all the way to 16,400 CPI—up from the previous 8,200. This is made possible by the inclusion of a 32-bit ARM processor that allows you to double the speed of your mouse. This is particularly useful for people who use multiple—or just very large—monitors.

Whenever I build a new computer I find that skimping on the mouse and keyboard is one of the easiest ways to cut costs. Rarely do I find myself thinking that the quality of these peripherals make a large impact on my gaming experience. It isn’t surprising that my career as a professional gamer never quite got off the ground. However, many gamers do not share my zeal for handicapping myself with sub-par tools. This is where a device such as the SteelSeries Sensei MLG Edition mouse can give you a competitive advantage, should you have the skill to take advantage of it.

The new Sensei also boasts the ability to adjust your mouse sensitivity in increments of 1 between 1 and 5700 CPI. This allows the gamer to have more precise hardware based sensitivity settings, removing some of the reliance on software to mediate these settings. Being able to adjust your mouse to your exact specifications may be the difference between a game-changing headshot and a near-miss.

Another standout feature is the customizable LCD display on the mouse, allowing you to customize your mouse to show your team name, gamertag, or anything you want on the back of the mouse.The LCD display also serves as a menu that shows information about the adjustable aspects of the mouse. This also allows the MLG Sensei to be completely ready to plug in and use. Your settings are stored in the mouse, so you don’t have to install software to retune the aspects of your mouse every time you switch computers.

Although a hundred bucks might seem like a lot of cash to be throwing down for a gaming peripheral, the mouse can be one of the most important tools for a professional gamer. With the recent increase of popularity in competitive games like  League of Legends, DOTA 2, and Starcraft 2,  it’s no surprise that we will be seeing many of us regular gamers trying to improve our play with these high-end peripherals.
