[section label=1. Razer Naga 2014]
When Razer first unveiled their Naga MMO gaming mouse in 2009, it was quite possibly the craziest yet most functional mouse designs most of us have ever seen. Sporting a 12 button thumb grid, the side buttons were a blessing to many MMO gamers who wanted to assign more macros on mice which at the time contained only a mere 2-4 extra macro buttons tops. These days, a whole slew of gaming peripheral companies have produced their own variations of the Naga and it seems like Razer isn’t taking the competition sitting down.
Recently, Razer announced the Naga 2014 MMO Gaming Mouse which features a number of improvements over the nearly 5 year old original design. Among the updates is the ergonomics of the mouse. Whereas the old Naga had a more narrow design, the latest Naga has a “… broader shape offering the best feel and comfort to a wider range of hand types.” Additionally, ” The fourth and fifth finger rest has a gentler down-slope to promote better grip and reduce fatigue over extended play.” and “Razer’s latest Naga also features a tilt-click scroll wheel that clicks in and out and also left and right, disposing more buttons for gamers”.
Razer is also improving the thumb grid as well as it’s “…now outfitted with mechanical switches for increased tactility, speed and actuation assurance. Each button on the thumb grid stands out more pronounced than previous generation models to allow for blind-finding, letting gamers more easily execute commands.”
The Razer Naga 2014 Edition is currently priced at $79.99 and will be available in both right and left handed editions. Those interested in picking one up can head over to the Razer website or your favorite 3rd party retailers.

THE WORLD’S BEST (AND BEST-SELLING) MMO GAMING MOUSE JUST GOT BETTER
Introducing the all-new Razer Naga: enhanced ergonomics, re-designed mechanical thumb grid and revolutionary in-game MMO configurator
Razer™, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, software and systems, today announced the latest iteration of the Razer Naga, the world’s all-time, best-selling MMO gaming mouse.
The Razer Naga’s iconic 12-button thumb grid is now outfitted with mechanical switches for increased tactility, speed and actuation assurance. Each button on the thumb grid stands out more pronounced than previous generation models to allow for blind-finding, letting gamers more easily execute commands.
The Naga’s ergonomic form factor has also been updated with a broader shape offering the best feel and comfort to a wider range of hand types. The fourth and fifth finger rest has a gentler down-slope to promote better grip and reduce fatigue over extended play. Razer’s latest Naga also features a tilt-click scroll wheel that clicks in and out and also left and right, disposing more buttons for gamers.
The original MMO gaming mouse, the Razer Naga was announced in 2009 and helped launch a new line of gaming mice that many have imitated but none have matched.
“When we launched the original Razer Naga gaming mouse several years ago, we had no idea that it would rise to become the best-selling MMO gaming mouse the world has ever seen, helping launch a slew of other MMO mice,” said Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder, CEO and creative director. “In fact, we expect the copycats to be the first in line to order the new Razer Naga. This new iteration is no different – mechanical thumb grid buttons for better game control, improved ergonomics that were already widely accepted as the benchmark for this type of mouse within the editorial community and intuitive software that makes MMO gaming more efficient.”
In-game MMO configurator software is also being introduced and is included with the Naga to allow gamers to set up their mouse’s key binds, macros and other preferences, all from within any games they play. This is achieved via a non-intrusive overlay, so gamers conveniently never have to quit games to customize the mouse exactly as they need.
Also available at launch is the left-handed edition of the all-new Razer Naga. Razer decided to produce the left-handed edition of their best-selling MMO gaming mouse at an expected fiscal loss as a result of popular community demand.
“Why? Because we like to do fiscally irresponsible acts for the betterment of gamers worldwide,” said Tan.
The Razer Naga is available now at Razerzone.com and at participating retailers worldwide. For more information on the Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse, please visit www.razerzone.com/razernaga.
