Razer Unveils Mass Effect 3 Peripherals
Mass Effect 3 is coming to PCs on March 6th, and if you’re planning on playing it with your mouse and keyboard, Razer has something that might catch your eye – Mass Effect 3 licensed peripherals.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen Razer launching licensed gear. There were the Star Wars: The Old Republic tie-ins, Transformers 3 goodies, and of course the Starcraft 2 peripherals. While Mass Effect 3 hasn’t traditionally been thought of as a PC-first title, this type of attention can’t help but catch the eye of PC enthusiasts, many of whom already have Razer products on their desks.
Here’s a list of the peripherals Razer has available for pre-order:
- Razer Imperator gaming mouse
- Razer Vespula dual-sided gaming mouse mat
- Razer BlackWidow Ultimate gaming keyboard
- Razer Onza Tournament Edition Xbox 360 controller
- Razer Chimaera Xbox 360 gaming headset
There’s also a N7 messenger bag and the N7 themed iPhone 4/4S case. Obviously, Bioware’s fired up about this partnership. “Mass Effect 3 is an all-out Galactic war and partnering with Razer gives us an opportunity to raise the stakes even higher and provide gamers with a product line that will certainly help them take Earth back on March 6,” says David Silverman, Marketing Director for BioWare. Whether or not you need these peripherals is up to you to determine, but you certainly can’t tell me that you can look at them and not want them just a little. The question is whether PC gamers will be interested in dropping a branded peripheral on their desk for years, when they’ll likely only be playing ME3 for weeks.
