“With the Fatal1ty 2020 Mouse, I hope to help gamers fulfill their dreams of
competing at the professional level. But if they think they can beat me, they
should know that I’ll be using this mouse too,” said Johnathan ‘Fatal1ty’ Wendel.
“I had a vision of a mouse designed specifically for gaming, with every feature
I would need to compete at the highest level. The Fatal1ty 2020 Mouse, which I
designed with Creative, realizes my vision and provides me the edge I need as a
champion.”

“We joined forces with Fatal1ty to develop the ultimate gaming arsenal when we
co-designed the Fatal1ty 2020 Mouse. We incorporate a cutting-edge G-Weight™
system and we set a new standard with 2400cpi to provide a competitive
advantage,” said Brad Anderson, director of product marketing for Creative. “Now
we’re unleashing this mouse to the public so that anyone who wants to beat
Fatal1ty can emulate his gaming rig with the Fatal1ty 2020 Mouse and our Sound
Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS sound card.”

Every detail of the Fatal1ty 2020 Mouse, from the overall design and ergonomics
to the technical specifications, has been developed in consultation with
Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, the world’s best first-person-shooter gamer. The
Fatal1ty 2020 Mouse has been designed with a completely new chassis and a host
of features to give gamers a shot at playing like the best PC gamers in the
world.

• The 2400cpi HD-Optix laser engine offers up to 6X the resolution of
standard optical mice, and the 5.8 megapixel sensor report rate allows it to
work flawlessly on virtually any surface and to track up to 15G’s of
acceleration, to guarantee that even the shortest or widest hand and arm
movements are tracked with the utmost precision;
• The custom G-Weight modular weight system allows users to replace weight
modules in a central chamber that is easily accessible from the top of the
chassis, providing a superior center of balance for the mouse. Five weight
modules are included with the mouse, ranging from Light Caliber for extra
agility and endurance, to Heavy Caliber for extra precision and sniping;
• Rapid-Res™ One-Click Hardware CPI resolution change button allows the user to
instantly change between 400, 800 and 1600 CPI with the touch of a button, and
includes a color LED readout for instant visual representation of the current
resolution;
• Exclusive SpeedWire™ zero-oxygen copper wiring and tangle-proof coating and a
gold-plated USB plug enable the fastest signal transfer to the PC;
• Zero-resistance Teflon™ feet provide smooth performance on any surface;
• An ultra-comfortable mouse chassis, rubberized grip points, a premium red and
black finish, and an illuminated “Fatal1ty” symbol ensures that the Creative
Fatal1ty 2020 Mouse looks as deadly as the performance it delivers.

Creative will also release the Fatal1ty 1010 Mouse for casual gamers, featuring
a 1600 CPI HD-Optix Engine in early 2006 for an estimated street price of
US$ 49.99.
