MMO mouse for left-handed gamers?

Left-handed Razer Naga a boon for one in ten MMO gamers.

Around one in ten people throughout the world are left-handed. This is about 700 million people, which is quite a large market.

They are catered for in most senses. Left-handed guitars mean prospective virtuosos don't have to turn their instruments upside down, left-handed scissors prevent gifts getting wrapped awkwardly and anti-clockwise clocks allow for left-handed time-keeping.

Now massively multiplayer online (MMO) players may find themselves in luck as PC peripheral manufacturer Razer has hinted at a left-handed version of its Naga gaming mouse.

The company's chief executive, Min-Liang Tan announced that if a post on his Facebook reached 10,000 by April 21st then the company will begin manufacturing the Naga for left-handers.

Razer met the target in just nine days, so it looks like the left-handed mouse is on its way.

The firm is the only left-handed gaming mouse manufacturer in the world. Yet MMO gamers have been left out as it only made the Razer DeathAdder for left-handed people, which is designed for first-person shooter (FPS) fans.

"We've always taken care of the southpaw gamers of the world with our ambi mice and the
[left-handed DeathAdder]. In fact, for every left-handed DeathAdder we make, we're losing money with each sale - and this in turn means we have less dollars for research and development of other products," said Mr Tan.

"But we do it because we believe that For Gamers, By Gamers  means For Left Hand Gamers too. "

The Naga mouse is specifically suited to MMO gamers as it offers 17 buttons that players can assign specific shortcuts to save time in the heat of battle.

It is ergonomically designed to provide maximum comfort during hours and hours of online gaming.

In addition, players of World of Warcraft and Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning can use a custom interface in-game to organise their skills and remove any on-screen clutter.

This could be a boon for left-handed gamers if Razer's social media campaign proves a success. ADNFCR-1220-ID-801330677-ADNFCR
