Question: Is Microsoft’s new touch mouse for gamers? Answer: Possibly…You may be just happy as could be with your current mouse, or maybe a mouse upgrade is something that is pretty low on your list of computer hardware that you intend to upgrade. I have always been happy with 2 big buttons and a scroll wheel. But it couldn’t hurt to try out something new once in a while, right?
Microsoft’s touch mouse is cool in how it allows you to interact with windows and your desktop. Just watch the teaser video to see. Not to mention the mouse also looks pretty slick. But no button clicking? That may be a little confusing at first for gamers and hard to get the hang of.
With the price of this mouse being $79.99, I think a mouse in this general price range for gamers would be more along the lines of the R.A.T 9. That bad boys can be found HERE. But for casual gaming, internet usage and desktop navigation the Touch Mouse may be a viable option for many.
