Pros and Attendees Can Weigh-In on What They Want For the Upcoming Co-Branded SteelSeries and MLG Mice, Mousepads and Keyboard Designs
COLUMBUS, OH – March 22, 2011 – Today, SteelSeries, the leading global manufacturer of competitive gaming peripherals announced that this weekend during the Major League Gaming (MLG) Winter Championship in Columbus, Ohio, attendees and professional players will have an opportunity to provide feedback about the mouse, mousepad and keyboard designs for the upcoming SteelSeries and MLG co-branded products.
“We introduced the SteelSeries Designed by Gamers campaign in 2011 by asking our large Facebook community which mouse design they preferred; and as a direct result of this feedback, we released the black and orange SteelSeries Kana Mouse. We are taking that concept to the next level together with Major League Gaming” said SteelSeries CMO, Kim Rom. “MLG Winter Championship attendees will be asked what features, functionality and designs they prefer. What better way to understand exactly what the MLG gamers, audience and fans want out of their peripherals than by asking them first hand?”
Throughout the weekend, attendees can answer a series of questions about features, designs and functionalities from kiosks inside of the SteelSeries booth. Participants in the survey can win various SteelSeries items throughout the weekend.
In addition, the SteelSeries MLG Edition QcK+ mousepads will be available exclusively at the MLG Pro Shop at the event for $19.99. Additional information about the Winter Championships can also be accessed at http://pro.majorleaguegaming.com/competitions/30.
