ROCCAT Product Launch Rescheduled

(PresseBox) (Hamburg, ) Introduction of the first three ROCCAT products rescheduled to the start of 2008. It is anticipated that the already hotly awaited ROCCAT Kone Gaming Mouse, the longed for ROCCAT Valo Gaming Keyboard as well as the ROCCAT Sense Mousepad will be available in Europe and North America next February.

René Korte, Managing Director of Roccat Studios Hamburg says: “We get a lot of inquiries on a daily basis from people who want to buy our products from retailers. That makes it even harder for us to reschedule the release of the Kone Gaming Mouse and the Valo Gaming Keyboard probably to February 2008. But due to our very high quality standards we don’t have any other choice. The satisfaction of gamers, who in our opinion are entitled to fully developed products, is clearly the highest priority for ROCCAT.”

ROCCAT and the Esports Community

The close link between ROCCAT and the Esports community ensures that computer gamers are involved in the development of ROCCAT products. On the lookout for the perfect shape, the ROCCAT Kone Gaming Mouse passed through the hands of many gamers. Our own Finnish Counter-Strikers Team ROCCAT and our close proximity to the Hamburg clan mTw allows intensive exchange to take place between product development and the target group. Ideas and comments can be directly passed on and acted upon. The objective of ROCCAT is clear: optimum accessories for computer gamers.

ROCCAT products in brief

The ROCCAT Valo Gaming Keyboard is equipped with 2MB of internal memory, a display as well as an integrated 40MHz Turbocore processor. 41 additional buttons permit numerous individual key assignments to be mapped.
