Los Angeles - June 10, 2014 - ROCCATTM unveils the Sova, the first fully realized modular wireless keyboard and mousepad combo that shatters couch gaming limitations and delivers the outstanding desktop gaming experience in the comfort of your living room. The Sova eliminates uncomfortable couch gaming by consolidating peripherals into a centralized battle station, allowing gamers to fully immerse in the game.
"Sova is the option for gamers wishing to expand their arena without sacrificing gaming experience," says René Korte, ROCCAT founder and CEO. "Platforms like Steam are fantastic, but the experience can be devalued by the lack of adequate gaming equipment. Gamers who wish to stream PC games to a living room television will no longer need to put up with latency issues and can now experience couch gaming at its fullest."
ROCCAT's Sova utilizes a highly modular design with flexible and adjustable parts that adapts to individual gaming preferences. It sports multiple USB ports and can be used with any mouse, including the newly unveiled Tyon with 16 different programmable buttons.
"Gaming is a not a one size fits all concept and everybody has a particular set of tools, such as their favorite mouse," adds Rene. "PC gamers use an increasing number of peripherals such as second-screen options and apps like ROCCAT's Power-Grid to bolster their gaming experience, and the Sova gives gamers that ability away from the desktop."
The Sova is comprised of durable yet lightweight machined brush aluminum, giving it a solid feel. Designed and perfected by gamers, it features a strong battery life for up to 12 hours of gameplay, a sliding mousepad that extends and retracts based on personal preference, padded leg rests to ensure comfort, and an ergonomic palm rest for hours of comfortable continuous play.
"The Sova was based on hundreds of hours of conceptualization, design refinement and testing," concludes Rene. "It is a new instrument that gives gamers the freedom to play anywhere they wish. PC Gamers will no longer be relegated to a desktop or laptop and can bring PC gaming into the living room or man cave."
