It seems everyone is gearing up for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3‘s release on November 11, 2011. First Turtle Beaches Modern Warfare 3 branded headsets, and now Logitech’s branded Keyboard and mouse, It makes you wonder if BattleField 3 ever really could compete with it, seeing how all the manufacturers are Call of Duty crazy.Anyway, Logitech are launching a brand new line of keyboards and mice branded with the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 logo. But unlike many other companies touting the “MW3″ logo, Logitech is making sure that their products are still affordable to everyone. Which in my opinion is a good thing. Below is a press release containing all the information about the products, and a photo gallery of them.
FREMONT, Calif. — Oct. 18, 2011 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled the Logitech® Gaming Keyboard G105 and the Logitech® Laser Mouse G9X, specially made for Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3. Ideal for power gamers, the new accessories make it easy and fun to customize your path to victory.
“The Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105 and the Logitech Laser Mouse G9X are perfect for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 enthusiasts who want the best in precision and customization for their gaming experience,” said Chris Pate, senior product marketing manager for gaming at Logitech. “Both devices let you jump right into the action with the power to perform complex maneuvers with confidence.”
Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105
The Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105 – the official keyboard of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – lets you play long into the night with military-style, night-vision green LED backlighting. Featuring six programmable G-keys, each with three mode states, the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105 provides up to 18 possible macro combinations per game. These macros let you perform single keystrokes or intricate multi-key combinations complete with mouse events, user-defined delays and repeating. New macros can even be recorded on the fly once you download the Logitech Gaming Software.
Multi-key input allows you to use up to five keys at once. You can perform multiple – and more complex – actions without the interference or ghosting that can occur on other keyboards. Plus, convenient media key controls put instant access to volume and mute, as well as start, stop, pause, forward and back functions, right at your fingertips. For added convenience, a game/desktop mode switch disables the Windows and Context Menu keys, so your game won’t be interrupted if you accidentally press the wrong keys.
Logitech Laser Mouse G9X
The Logitech Laser Mouse G9X’s gaming laser gives you game-changing precision at hand speeds up to 165 inches per second on the most popular gaming mouse pad surfaces. On-the-fly, adjustable dpi takes you from pixel-precise targeting (200 dpi) to lightning-fast maneuvers (up to 5700 dpi) without pausing the action, while full-speed USB delivers performance at up to 1000 reports per second. The MicroGear™ Precision Scroll wheel is perfect for weapon selection – or switch to frictionless hyper-fast scrolling to fly through long Web pages when you’re not playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
A weight-tuning system allows you to customize your mouse with up to 28 grams of extra weights that you can mix and match for more control. A custom color display also lets you choose the color of your LEDs from a wide color spectrum so you can match your mouse to your PC, your game, or your style.
