Hehe; those "I'm with noob" are quite funny. I hope they don't start spreading though, because that would just get on my nerves.

Looks like everyone was having a good time, wouldnt mind going to one myself sometime. Shame they didnt have a Guitar Hero tournament though

Anyone got any idea on the power consumption for whole place? Must be massive.

I like that laser cut circuit board case on page 2. The case is awesome.

*drools* So many gamers. I haven't gamed in over a year. Stupid self-resolve.
In regards to that laser-cut case, it's HOT! And it is a released case. Either the G50 http://lian-li.com/Product/Chassis/M_C_PS_PC-G50.htm or the G70 http://lian-li.com/Product/Chassis/S_C_PC-G70.htm . But still HOT!

I've still got a load of BT i10 mugs. Atleast I think they're i10!

Those were the days. The older grandstand was much nicer IMO! And I liked all the sub rooms. Doesn't have the same effect as you walk in though, until you took a walk around and realised how stupidly big the whole place was!

Those were the days

Does anyone have any information on the mouse that the kid (with the 27 in. LG screen) was using? Any info on where to buy, who makes it..anything. It looks very interesting as I have never seen a mouse like that, that could be used for gaming. I would appreciate it if anyone responds who has info. Thanks in advance.

I've gotta be honest, the obsessive Creative coverage for almost any event is starting to get to me. I know they're (were?) a big site sponsor and all, but them having their own page seems a bit much.

I agree though, that circuit board mod was absolutely awesome. Very cool and pretty darned original, and surprisingly not over-the-top.

The guys on our team who worked extremely hard on the Creative mods are very proud of their work, as are the rest of us. This is one of the main reasons we are so happy to "show off" the work the bit-tech team is capable of, especially when it is in the public domain like it was at i27!

Kudos has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
I had to register for the forums after seein the "Guild Wars" mod.

I'm thinking it was an Inwin Q-500 case (got one myself), but the pics were a bit lacking on details so I'm not possitive... Kinda curious on whether I'm right or not, and I don't wan't to wait for the review thats been promised.

And if it is a Q-500, I want to know how many ppl helped carry the rig in... those things are heavier empty than most full rigs!!! (monitor included)

Can anyone give me an answer before curiosity kills this cat?

*edit*
I'm probably wrong on it being a Q-500, I dug mine out and aside from the factory vents up the sides near the front it just doesn't seem right.

Might still be an older Inwin, but not a Q-500.

*hangs head in shame and crawls off into a dark corner*

Hey guys, this is Matt from uQ Gaming. It was my rig that was featured in the post you mention and was being demonstrated to Wil (really sound guy) by my colleague Iain.

The mouse we were pimiping at the event was provided by our sponsors www.gamingmouse.com. The company who makes it, GWSystems, do alot of development work for Razer and Logitech so the guys know what they are talking about! The theory is that because you have more muscles in your fingers than your wrist and forearm, you are mose able to accurately use the mouse. It is quite a departure from the previous style and takes some getting used to. That being said, one guy picked it straight up, loaded up de_dust2 and blew the heads off 3 enemies without so much as a flinch! All at default settings. Here's the tech details:

Weighing in at 2.5 oz, the small, circular RTR-720 is approx 35% lighter and smaller than the average desktop mouse. Smaller and lighter means faster, more precise action, with less movement and work.

Placing the small circular mouse between the fingers and thumb enables the ultra-precise compound motion of the fingers to contribute to mouse movement. This means the mouse can be moved twice as fast or with double the accuracy of conventional handheld desktop mice.

7 buttons in total - with 4 buttons on top and 3 pressure zones built into the wrap around rubber grip, there is a button at every fingertip. Grip zones with Shift functions can quadruple the commands available from the other buttons.

1600 dpi (optical) for precise aiming and game control. X and Y axis sensitivity are individually and dynamically adjustable.

Top Exiting Mouse Cord eliminates drag for cordless perfomance.

The RTR-720 contains its own CPU, memory, and software for advanced performance without special disc-based drivers. The RTR-720 contains more than 5 times the processing power of the original IBM PC or Apple IIe which it uses to intelligently manage an innovative new suite of gaming controls and binding capabilities.

The RTR-720 with PAL 2.0 Mouse Controls and Binding Engine features the capability to save, store, and manage 30 complete sets of configuration instructions. Profiles are stored in onboard memory and can be dynamically changed to automatically or manually configure the RTR for use with specific games, mods, or applications. 32k of non-volatile onboard memory enables highly customized configurations to be automatically loaded upon game or program activation–completely independently of the machine it is plugged to.

As for the system we were using it with, it was an Alienware Area 51-M 7700 Laptop with an Intel 3.6 P4, GeForce 6800 @ 400MHz/1100Mhz, 2GB DDR 500 RAM and plugged into the stunning 32" LG Monitor which was a stonking 8ms response.

Thank you very much for the information. Now I'm starting to get worried that its going to be too much money after reading the specs on it and seeing that there is a 10% off coupon.

What games did you use with this mouse? The fact that you are limited to just the index finger for button pressing seems a drawback for games like cod.

i27 was prolly best i-series yet, lots of hot stuff to play on very good atmosphere all round.

the exact weight of my guildwars case is 52kg which is a tad heavy for lifting mini wheels F T W!

Personally I preferred to control the mouse with my thumb and 4th finger, leaving two for button presses. We demostrated the mouse using CS, CSS, ET, CoD2 and Q4.

The price is just over £30
