I love it when companys celebrate some kind of anniversary. They always have some kind of special edition of their more popular items. It is one of the few times a company will truly cut loose and ignore regular conventions for a given product. This year ROCCAT is celebrating their 5 year anniversary with the Kone Pure Color which comes in, you guessed it, a lot of new colors.
Are you looking for a mouse to perfect match your system that isn’t black? Well ROCCAT Kone Pure Color will be perfect for you as they have three new styles beyond the black and white versions. The Inferno Orange, Polar Blue, and Hellfire Red will be limited edition Kone Pure Color with a 8200 DPI Pro-Aim R3 laser sensor and Omron switches. They of course support ROCCAT’s signature technologies such as Easy-Aim,Easy-Shift[+], and ROCCAT Talk.
It didn’t take long for ROCCAT to make a name for itself among gaming peripherals and they continue to look forward with new innovative technologies for gamers. 5 years doesn’t seem like a long time, but it is when you consider the market they compete in. Well here’s to ROCCAT’s 5 year anniversary and some great special edition gaming mice with more color options to come. More details in the press release below.

ROCCAT Kone – Evolution of a Gaming Mouse
The original Kone was the first product ROCCAT™ developed in 2008. CEO and Founder René Korte, reminisces about the beginning days of ROCCAT™: “Early on, I was involved in the professional gaming scene. So, I was aware of the many professional players who were dissatisfied with their gaming devices. Since then our overall mission has been to build high-quality peripherals that satisfy the needs of all ambitious gamers.”
5 years later, known for its powerful performance, the Kone series is one of the most successful gaming devices in the world. Although the Kone series has set new standards for gaming mice, the evolution will continue, releasing more special editions to look out for in 2013!
