SteelSeries, a leading manufacturer of innovative professional gaming gear, today announced that SteelSeries and SK-Gaming will celebrate the 10 year anniversary of SK Gaming with limited time discount offers as well as limited edition gaming gear over the coming months.
SK Gaming was founded in 1997 by German Quake-players under the name Schroet Kommando. For the past 10 years the SK Gaming organization has been an innovator in eSports and competitive gaming on a number of important areas. In 2003 SK Gaming was the first organization to contract their FPS-gaming team and was in 2004 the first organization to sell a contracted player to another organization. The gaming organization has fostered some of the best players in the history of professional gaming, resulting in amazing achievements and personal rewards for the players. In 2003 SK Gaming’s Counter-Strike team became the first team to win prize money in excess of $150.000 USD, in 2006 SK Gaming’s Quake IV squad won 8 out of 10 international tournaments and in 2007 players from SK Gaming’s race division won a ‘real’ car: a BMW M6.
SteelSeries and SK Gaming started co-development of professional gaming gear in 2003, resulting in the world’s best-selling hard plastic mousepad for professional gaming: SteelSeries S&S. A gaming surface that since its release has won numerous CPL events as well as major international grand-slam events such as WCG, ESWC and WEG.
As part of the 10 year anniversary celebration, SK Gaming will for a limited time offer the original SteelSeries S&S (SK Edition) to loyal fans for only 19.95 Euro – a discount of more than 40%. The anniversary offer is already available at the SK Gaming shop and will remain active for the next couple of weeks.
The 10 year anniversary continues throughout 2007 where a number of limited edition products will be released, including audio products in the trademark black and blue SK Gaming colors.
