Not to be outdone by IOGEAR, SteelSeries has just made available the Rival 500 mouse designed specifically for MMOs and MOBAs.

The gaming mouse "re-imagines" the multi-button layout to be more natural for the right-handed user with up to 15 customizable buttons and RGB illumination of up to 16.8 million colors for the scroll wheel.
