Microsoft has announced a limited edition Halo mouse

Microsoft has once again refreshed the Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 by giving it a fairly attractive Halo design, based around the game's primary character Master Chief.

As the name suggests, the mouse is intended to be used primarily on notebooks and tablets, and the size reflects this at 2.25" (57.1mm) wide and 3.75" (95.4mm) long. It also features Microsoft's famed BlueTrack Technology, meaning that it will work on just about any surface you could think of, including reflective surfaces and rougher ones (such as a park bench).

Microsoft is calling the mouse "Wireless Mobile Mouse 3500 Halo Limited Edition: The Master Chief."

Microsoft also claims an 8-month battery life for the mouse, however, for the average gamer, it will likely be less than half of that. One feature that appears to still be missing from Microsoft's Mobile Mouse line-up is an automatic-off feature, which would turn off the mouse automatically after a period of inactivity. 

This limited edition Halo mouse is being announced right on time as Microsoft prepares to offer their latest Halo gaming offering, dubbed "Halo 2: Anniversary."

The mouse is currently available as a pre-order from Gamestop at $29.99.

Wow, must have took someone a whole hour to design that.

C'mon Microsoft, put some effort into it. Release a transparent blue mouse like the Halo 4 Xbox console and I'm all over that.

Some things clearly change at Microsoft. Their naming conventions however, do not :p

I know right! They certainly showed us!

Since some of X1's games are on PC, there might be a big chance of MCC coming to PC. This might depend on how many Xboxes get sold.

If the scroll wheel doesn't 'click' as you turn it then it's totally unsuited for gaming. Wireless mice may also mean lag.

Or at least a touch strip like the Sculpt Comfort Mouse that I can set the swipes to perform back/forward functions. I refuse to buy a mouse without those navigation abilities.

I have MS wireless mouse 3500 for gaming is best, because I feels comfortable, because it depend on your hands feel comfortable.

They should probably go ahead and release at least one recent Halo game on PC too.

Just hope that the Amazon Spain error becomes true… (they listed "Halo: The Master Chief Collection" for PC…)
