Next week ROCCAT will uncover its new Kone XTD gaming mouse at Computex in Taipei and at E3 in LA.
German gaming peripherals manufacturer, ROCCAT Studios, will unveil one of
the most powerful gaming devices ever – and successor to the world famous Kone[+] – with the sneak

precise scroll wheel designed to let gamers give every command with absolute accuracy.
Add to that a range of ergonomic features designed to deliver the longest play comfort, like No-Sweat side
grips for extended slip-free play, a finger-pampering soft touch surface – as well as a suite of the world’s
most advanced gaming software for max customization – and the Kone XTD promises to be the Hamburg-
based company’s most powerful gaming mouse to date.

CEO. “This is a supreme gaming weapon custom-built for the most demanding warriors. We can’t wait to
show off the newest big cat of gaming mice at E3 and Computex.”
The Kone XTD also comes standard with many exclusive features much loved by Kone[+] fans, including

The Kone XTD even comes loaded with the new ROCCAT Achievements Display – or R.A.D. – a fun and

exceptional milestones have been reached.
The Kone XTD is expected to hit shelves internationally September 2012. Select E3 and Computex visitors
can test drive the XTD at ROCCAT booths.
