I realize the mouse is designed for MMO games... and MMOs typically require more buttons than other games. But I play many MMOs, and if I had that many buttons on my mouse I would have no need to use my keyboard.

Do people seriously need a mouse with 17 buttons on it? I just don't get it.

12 buttons on the side....Man, I don't even use the extra buttons on my keyboard (besides the calc. and volume.)
Now...maybe if you set the 12 buttons as the numeric pad, and you work on accounting... you pertty much won't use the numeric pad...

I play WoW casually, and I'll tell you how I could use that many keys. I have the first 5 numbers, QERT FG ZXCV all bound to abilities, some with additional shift combo binds. That's 15+ buttons, and when you consider that you also have to contort around WASD to use them, moving some to this mouse starts to look pretty sensible. It's definitely overkill for most games, though.

Also, these keys would be great to use as control group hotkeys in RTS games. It's a real hassle reaching all the way to 9 and 0 to select something.

I think the idea is to have the quickest access possible to your macros. You're still likely to be moving around using the keyboard - so you need your right hand to hit your macros and keep the screen aligned to the ideal position at the same time.

Think PvP in WoW and you'll get a good feel for where they're headed with this.

$80 don't sound over price to me. Most of these gaming mice (steelseries, logitech...) are price similar.

I don't need all them damn buttons !
After purchasing a G500 recently I took it apart and removed all the extra buttons (even the near worthless dpi adjustment ones) they kept getting in the way of regular mouse usage.

You guys aren't thinking when you say you don't need all these buttons. First of all place your left hand on the keyboard in your normal FPS-WASD position. Now put your right hand on your mouse. Now, go to http://www.wowhead.com and look up the abilities for any class in WoW and tell me how you are going to use all of those abilities from the keys available to you in 'shooter position' on the keyboard. The buttons help... a lot.

You know, I never realized how quickly I would use those buttons, but I'm addicted and can't see owning another mouse for MMO gaming.
After a week, you'll notice the increased response time vs keyboard hotkeys.

Then again, I've been a razer fanboy ever since I got one for Christmas when I was 19.

These were slated to go on pre-order today but now they are gone from Razer's web site *cry* I hope they are still releasing them...
