ROCCAT Kone Plus, the max customization gaming mouse, launched in the UAE
Dubai, July 10, 2011 – ROCCAT, the young Hamburg-based manufacturer of gaming peripherals,
has announced the launch of the new ROCCAT™ Kone[+] (Kone Plus)- Max Customization Gaming
Mouse in the UAE. ROCCAT™ products are exclusively distributed in the UAE & rest of Middle East
region by Uber Technologies, a leading provider of gaming and IT peripherals.
The ROCCAT Kone[+] - Max Customization Gaming Mouse packs a huge amount of performance
under its hood thanks to the use of the revolutionary 6000dpi Pro-Aim Laser Sensor R2.
“The ROCCAT™ Kone[+] is more than the sum of its parts. The successor to the award-winning Kone
is the result of many years’ experience in engineering and industrial design, plus extensive feedback
from the gaming community. Never before has perfectly formed design and high-performance
technology been so closely intertwined. A clear focus on gamers’ needs has given rise to a mouse
that is packed with unique innovations and an unprecedented range of customizable configuration
options”, said Mr. Ganesh Venugopal, Head of Sales - UBER Technologies.
The ROCCAT™ Kone[+] is priced at approx. AED 550 and is available at all leading retail outlets.
In conjunction with its 10.5 megapixel resolution and 1000Hz polling rate, the Pro-Aim Laser Sensor
offers maximum precision, even transmitting lightning fast mouse movements with up to 30Gs of
acceleration and with speeds of up to 200ips (5.08m/s) without loss or lag. Thanks to the Tracking &
Distance Control Unit (TDCU), which is now integrated in the laser sensor, the ROCCAT™ Kone[+],
can also control lift-off distance as well as fine-tunethe sensor to suit the Mousepad for optimal
In addition, really efficient core improvements to the mouse wheel and surrounding buttons increase
the ease of use of the new Kone[+].
The introduction of the EasyShift[+] Button makes it possible to assign two functions to each button,
like using the Shift key on a keyboard. For instance, the eight programmable buttons plus the mouse
wheel can now directly trigger an unparalleled 22 mouse functions – with all the buttons remaining
easily accessible. A second button can be used for the EasyAim function. While the EasyAim button
is held depressed, a preselected DPI setting is automatically switched to – really useful in situations
such as when precise in-game aiming is called for, where lower DPI settings are quickly required. It
really lives up to its name. The EasyWheel function works in the same way and can be used to control
the Aero Flip 3D feature in Windows 7, among other things.
The feature-rich driver has been further enhanced with additional innovative functions making it
possible to customize the mouse to suit individual needs like no other mouse.
The light system remains unbeaten. Four Multicolor LEDs, together with the enhanced lightpipes and
configurable effects, can light up, alternate or pulsate in more than four different colors at the same
time. It’s a real eye-catcher on any desktop.
The accompanying Macro Manager makes creating custom command sequences really easy.
Predefined Macro Presets for the top 20 PC games as well as several office apps make it even
easier to customize the mouse – plus the new Loop Function now makes it possible to loop macros
All the settings can be saved in five Game Profiles on the mouse’s 576KB of on-board memory, and
linked to games and apps, allowing button configurations, lighting set-ups and DPI settings, etc., to
be automatically loaded when the game is started. A Windows Profile then automatically switches the
Kone[+] back to the previously selected default setting as soon as the game is exited.
On top of that, there’s the unique sound feedback system. The famous ROCCAT voice gives
immediate feedback when DPI settings, profiles, the volume level or the sensitivity setting is changed.
Furthermore, a Weight System comprising 4 x 5g weights is included, allowing gamers to customize
the weight to suit their preferences.
