SteelSeries' new Prime franchise equipment are tailored solely for performance

Sometimes, you don't feel like going easy on the competition. Sometimes, you just want to bring home that one sweet victory and call it a day. And sometimes, you really just want (or need) to give that salty enemy player a good kick in the pants. We should know - we've all been there (especially that latter situation). 

In such life-or-respawn cases, SteelSeries has prepared a fine assortment of weapons (read: gaming equipment) for you to carry into the fray. There's no need to look for any fancy features, decorations, or naming conventions here because their new Prime franchise is all about taking home the win.

Currently, the opening lineup consists of four items - three Prime gaming mice and an Arctis Prime headset.

The former are the Prime, Prime+, and Prime Wireless gaming mice. Developed in collaboration with some of the world's top esports players, these mice are tailor-made for long-term comfort, durability, and responsiveness, while still maintaining a lightweight form factor that's pleasing to the eye. Although all three share many of the same implements, like SteelSeries' lightning-fast Prestige Optical Magnetic (OM) switches and a "battle-tested shape", there are still a number of differences between them.

Functionally, the biggest difference lies between the Prime and Prime+ mice - the latter dials up the already-impressive responsiveness of the regular Prime mouse to eleven with the TrueMove Pro+ sensor, while also adding full onboard customisation that doesn't need users to set up any additional software. As for the Prime Wireless mouse, while it also features an onboard customisation suite, not unlike the Prime+, the TrueMove Pro+ sensor has been replaced by a TrueMove Air sensor with true 1-to-1 tracking, topped off with a best-in-class fast-charging battery that can deliver 100 hours of gameplay.

Finally, the outlier - the Arctis Prime Gaming headset. Created with the concept of a "rally car" in mind, this sleek and lightweight pair of headphones combines SteelSeries' award-winning Arctis heritage with top-notch noise-isolating leatherette ear cushions, high-quality audio drivers, and maximum detail separation fit for the highest levels of competitive gaming. 

Regarding availability, all four items can be purchased from the  SteelSeries's official stores on Lazada and Shopee, and all other authorised retailers. As for the pricing, the Prime, Prime+, and Prime Wireless mice will set you back S$119, S$149, and S$299 respectively, while the Arctis Prime Gaming Headset is priced slightly higher than the Prime+ at S$179.
