In the details released by Microsoft on its upcoming peripherals which are going to be released in the summer, two things are really worth looking out for. One is the new futuristic looking wireless Arc mouse, other is the revamping of the popular Sidewinder gaming mouse.

The new Arc mouse really seems to be the center of attention. It is a wireless mouse which has both style as well as portability and not to mention, a futuristic looking design. It has a got a crescent moon design, and you can even fold it to reduce the size in half. So here you are getting a full sized mouse as well as the portability of a notebook mouse. It is all about the fashion edge, with a stylish micro transceiver that you can leave right in your computer. It is available in two colors – red and black at a price of $59.95.



Microsoft has also announced that they are going to revamp the Sidewinder gaming mouse. The large size of the Sidewinder mouse was problem with the mouse as it was unfit for most hands. The scroll wheel was also stiff. These two defects made it almost unappealing towards gamers. Though the design looks almost similar to the predecessor, the new X5 sidewinder is significantly altered. The new Sidewinder gaming mouse no longer features the weighted box that was used for adjusting the heft of the mouse. The LCD screen that once displayed sensitivity information is also gone. The X5 features nine programmable buttons, hardware DPI switching, and a quick-launch shortcut, and is wired.

The price of the mouse has also been reduced to $59.95 . These are going to be soon available in the market and are a perfect choice for fashion trendy people and serious gamers.
