Razer is making the Naga left-handed

by: Sean Colleli -
Are you a lefty MMO player, but you've felt ill-equipped because of the dearth of left-handed mice? Razer is looking to change that. While there are plenty of serviceable left-handed or ambidextrous gaming mice out there, there aren't a whole lot specifically geared toward MMOs. After receiving overwhelming support for it on their Facebook page, Razer is lefty-flipping their Naga MMO mouse to address this problem.

The Naga has been getting good reviews, and after adopting their Imperator mouse as my new favorite I can vouch that Razer makes quality product. For once this looks like a sure thing for left handed gamers, so hopefully Razer puts this mouse on the market soon.
Razer announces plans to unveil left-handed Naga

Community’s voice heard as Razer reveals left-handed MMO gaming mouse

Carlsbad, Calif. – March 30th, 2012 – Razer™, the world leader in high-performance gaming hardware, is receiving an overwhelming response from its devoted community, and has decided to move forward with plans to release a left-handed version of its award-winning Naga MMO gaming mouse.

Razer CEO and Chief Gamer Min-Liang Tan promised left-handed users that the company would make a left-handed Naga if his post on Facebook reached 10,000 “Likes” before April 21. The community responded by hitting that lofty total in less than one week on March 29, more than three weeks before the deadline.

“That Facebook post generated more buzz than we could’ve ever imagined, which proves that there have been a number of gamers that have had their needs ignored for some time,” said Tan. “We pride ourselves on being gamers ourselves, and we all know that there is no substitute for gaming with your dominant hand.”

Razer became the first company to offer a left-handed gaming mouse two years ago, when the company announced its DeathAdder Left-Hand Edition. Proving that it’s still serious about serving the need of its legions of left-handed users, Razer’s latest Naga is only the second professional-grade gaming mouse designed specifically for left-handed users – and Razer makes both of them.

The community is a huge part of Razer, and that’s why we have a dedicated team of community specialists that monitor and interact with fans all over the world. Razer encourages any and all of its fans to connect with the company via Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/razer) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/cultofrazer), and share their ideas on what could be the next big announcement. We’re always listening.
