   A couple of weeks ago CCP Games the creators behind the massive EVE Online MMORPG surprised everyone by announcing their latest game prototype called Project Legion which unlike their much acclaimed DUST 514 Multiplayer First Person Shooter PS3 title is to be released solely on PC. Naturally it's going to be a while before CCP Games manages to even release a beta of the game but this announcement combined with the release of several highly anticipated upcoming titles like Watch dogs, Squadron 42/Star Citizen, Alien: Isolation, Mad Max, Evolve and Elite Frontier and it's a safe bet that countless gamers around the world are going to be gearing up for them really soon. Logitech is not only amongst the oldest companies in the PC industry but they are also without doubt amongst the top gaming peripheral manufacturers in the market currently largely thanks to both the quality of their products and their excellent after sales support. For the past week we've been testing their latest G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse around the clock and today we can finally share our thoughts and opinion about it with all of you.


   Focused on innovation and quality, Logitech designs personal peripherals to help people enjoy a better experience with the digital world. We started in 1981 with mice, which (new at the time) provided a more intuitive way of interacting with a personal computer. We became the worldwide leader in computer mice, and have reinvented the mouse in dozens of ways to match the evolving needs of PC and laptop users. Since those early days, we have expanded our expertise in product design beyond the computer mouse, with a broad portfolio of interface devices that are the “last inch” between you and your computer or your console game, digital music or home-entertainment system. With products sold in almost every country in the world, Logitech’s leadership in innovation now encompasses a wide variety of personal peripherals (both cordless and corded), with special emphasis on products for PC navigation, gaming, Internet communications, digital music and home-entertainment control. For each of our product categories, we study how our customers use their digital devices, and then our designers and engineers set their sights on how we can create a better experience with those devices – richer, more comfortable, more fun, more productive, more convenient, and more delightful.


   The G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse is the successor to last year’s G500s gaming mouse although you will not find that many similarities between these two models since Logitech decided to massively improve the new model. So this time over Logitech has equipped the G502 with their latest optical (IR) sensor (Delta Zero) that gives it a maximum resolution of 12.000DPI (Dots Per Inch) with 40G's of acceleration and a maximum speed of 300IPS (Inches Per Second) thus placing it right next to the fastest gaming mice in the marker as we speak. Of course i don't expect anybody to ever play a game with the mouse set at 12.000DPI but this optical sensor also offer a calibration system that analyzes the surface you are using the mouse on and makes all necessary changes to offer the best possible performance. This may not impress some of you but considering that the closest thing we've seen to that is the surface analyzer by Mionix we really think that our friends over at Logitech are stepping up their game.
