With five programmable buttons, adjustable weights and an on-board LCD display, the only thing missing from Microsoft's new SideWinder gaming mouse is a signed autograph by Fatal1ty in pizza grease. The SideWinder series was a staple of Windows gaming in the 90's, marred by compatibility issues and bad taste. Well, it's back and while we're sure that Microsoft won't have any issues with compatibility (it's only a USB mouse, after all), they've still got a long ways to go in the style department.

The SideWinder mouse will be available this October and for the hefty sum of $79.95.
