Introduction

Please don’t hate me, but I’m going to mention the fact of how many gaming mice there are right now. With that out of the way, there are so many gaming mice around right now, it’s getting real hard to do something that is truly innovative in the market right now. That’s where the Rival 500 comes into play. They’ve redesigned the thumb area on this mouse to do something that is quite unique for the industry and while some of their designs are already unique, STEELSERIES could really be on to something for MMO/RPG gamers. We’ll take a closer look at the mouse shortly, but here’s a quick refresher course on the core values of STEELSERIES.

Here at SteelSeries, we are obsessed with “firsts”. Dating back to 2001, our company was formed to meet the surface needs of hardcore gamers by introducing the first glass mousepad, the Icemat. Since that original innovation, we created the first mechanical gaming keyboard, the first suspended headband for gaming headsets, the first World of Warcraft mouse and endless other innovations. SteelSeries is dedicated to building products that push professional gaming further than anyone dreamed. Those innovations make gaming more competitive and more fun for gamers everywhere.

INSPIRING DESIGN

Our fans, customers and professional eSports teams demand the ultimate performance from SteelSeries. We combine the necessity of professional-grade quality and durability with our unyielding pursuit of simple, modern design. Every surface, button, dial, key and wheel is designed with the gamer’s every move in mind. It’s our goal to deliver gaming peripherals that feel like an extension of you. Our designers hand-pick every material to make sure you have a beautiful product and our engineers test every feature, ensuring tournament-ready quality.

WE ARE eSPORTS

Since the new millennium, SteelSeries has been a driving force of eSports and professional gaming. From sponsoring the first pro players, to creating products specifically for pro teams, to turning exceptional gamers into global superstars, SteelSeries has been focused on growing the industry and helping gamers everywhere. Our pro team relationships are more than sponsorships, they are partnerships. We work closely with the world’s best gamers to fine-tune our products and to ensure everything we create meets the needs of gamers at every level.
