Looks like a mouse that would appeal to the bigger audience.
Kinda makes me curious in how many times the sort of predecessor "G500" has been sold and has made a profit for logitech.
Or what mice have been sold the most in there history or have made the biggest impact on there bank balance
G400, G500, G100, G9(x)?
My bet would be on the g400 following up by the g500.
Ofcourse they want a succesor to keep up the sales of the older best selling shapes/models/versions.
Looking at the g502 its a really nice follow up for the people that like/used the g500.
And looks like a model that would sell well for the main audience but curious if we will see it used by more profesional e-sports players or they stay away from it.
Sensor performance could be the trigger for them, so that audience would pick up the mouse aswell.
And reading about it makes me believe it will be good and sell/interest the whole market.
For product line up, developing newer models of older mice is a safe bet.
Makes me curious if logitech will ever release a really new shape/model or keep further developping there well know older models.
Then for developing new products I would love if they would look at a mouse from a e-sport perspective.
And not from a mass appealing perspective ofc. that aint the best strategy as a company you want to make the biggest profit.
But I would greatly appreciate if one compagny would try to make a mouse that would slide at the same resistance/effort everytime.
Because for example as a FPS player you want to have consistency, so no acceleration and a pad that gives the same resistance or good stopping power everytime.
Mousefeet that aswell help to give the same feeling at every resistance you give on the top of the mouse and sliding speed you are giving on the shape.
So develop a mouse from a sience perspective, measure the friction wich material gives the most consistent friction all the time at all global speeds used.
What shape of mousefeet would help for the consistency, round onces or exactly shaped as the mouse edges or squares onces.
The pad should be develop in conjunction with the mouse so overal everything is consistent at every mouse speed you get the same feeling so overal mastering aim would be easier and mouse movement more precise seeing you can handle the mouse and it will feel as a real extension of youre arm/movement and doing globally evertime the same.
What colour of pad, would help sensor performance what material/roughness pattern in the pad would increase its accuracy and consistent gliding performance.
Test peoples sliding speeds what speeds are most common take an average and develop for that speed to be consistent.
Make it ambidextrous both sides same feeling no extra buttons for dpi.
Just software to set it up onces so you have no chance of ever changing the dpi when you dont want to.
Ow well should stop blattering about but my take is devolop a mouse + pad arround consistent behaviour because that would make the best mouse. Because highest m/s and accuracu or high dpi are almost no bottlenecks anymore.
So think outside the box use different materials test frictions etc.. conjunction s of materials colours patterns measure average m/s and focus on consistent behaviour of mouse sliding stopping.
It would give a next level for developing a mouse.Edited by CtrlAltel1te - 4/8/14 at 1:45pm
