Every gamer, at some point, has been called a noob. It's almost a rite of passage and it's not unique to MMOs either.

But games like WoW are different, of course, because everyone is paying by the month in order to play together, and the developers are constantly adding some new content revising the old. As time goes b...

Along with that new Razer-powered Habu mouse, Microsoft is busting out two more gaming devices with the realization that sometimes noobs need to get their game on too.
