In recent years the market for gaming mice has continually expanded. New models from established players like Logitech and Razer launch many times a year, and are joined by offerings from dozens of startups and smaller volume manufacturers. Such a state of affairs was not always the case, however. It was, in fact, only 1999 when the first dedicated gaming mouse hit the market, the Razer Boomslang. Now, close to a decade later, Razer is celebrating the Boomslang's semi-historic heritage as the first of a new breed of gaming peripherals by re-releasing the Boomslang design as a limited-run of 10,000 individually numbered Collector's Edition units.
