ゲーマー向けにさまざまなマウスやキーボードを展開するRazer社の新製品は、マウスパッドのRazer Scarab。同社は以前もRazer Destructorというマウスパッドを販売しており、こちらは「待望の続編」ということになります。表面には Fractal 2.0 なる、マウスのセンサが劇的に早く、かつ正確に反応するというクリスタルコーティングを採用しており、背面は安定操作に最適なラバー仕立て。オンライン対戦のお供にはもちろん、イベント時には「マウスパッドがいつものと違ったから滑ったわー、いつものとは違ったからなー」などと言い訳を許さぬよう敵に贈るくらいの準備があってもいいかもしれません。専用ケースも付属して、お値段は39.99ドル。今月発売です。続きには英文プレスリリースを掲載。
RAZER™ RELEASES THE RAZER SCARAB – SEQUEL TO THE REVOLUTIONARY RAZER DESTRUCTOR
The All-New Hard Mouse Mat for High DPI Gaming will be available in December
Carlsbad, Calif. – December 16, 2010 – Most of the time, sequels to great movies suck. Normally, sequels to great books suck. Sometimes, sequels to great games suck. But what doesn't ever suck are sequels to Razer products. They just keep getting better.
Razer, the world's leading high-end precision gaming brand, wants you to know that your gaming doesn't have to suck anymore thanks to the release of the Razer Scarab; the next generation hard gaming mouse mat. Featuring a Razer Fractal 2.0 surface coated in light grey, the long-awaited sequel to the Razer Destructor takes superior tracking to an explosive new level.
"With this sequel, we focused on enhancing the Fractal surface coating so that gamers will improve their game even further. It's all you need to win in life," said Robert "Razerguy" Krakoff, president of Razer USA, "And in PC games of course. The Razer Scarab is for gamers who prefer hard surfaces, high performance areas, effortless swipes and absolute tracking."
Alexey "Cypher" Yanusheuski of Team Serious Gaming, world champion in Quake Live said of the Scarab, "A mat like this makes keeping up with the high intensity of Quake easy. I look forward to further improving my rocket jump technique and upping my frag count."
Olga "Pachella" Pak, Counter-strike 1.6 world champion with Team Mousesports said, "Razer paid special attention to the needs of FPS gamers when developing this; improving accuracy and now the Scarab is an indispensable accessory to complement my high-dpi gaming mouse."
About the Razer Scarab
What makes the Scarab the awesome mat it is comes down to Razer's Fractal 2.0 surface coating. It establishes a highly responsive and uniform tracking system perfect for optical and laser mice sensors. It's been finely-tuned to balance between speed and control to help acquire targets more accurately.
Razer even included a lightweight carrying case that not only protects the Scarab, but is a sweet folio to store documents for your job as a tax accountant by day, l33t gamer by night. It even looks great, guaranteed to turn heads at the next LAN party you destroy.
So go on, get a Razer Scarab and make your high-dpi gaming mouse (it better also be a Razer) happy.
