Razer shows Battlefield 3 peripherals

The first of the Battlefield 3 Razer peripherals is this modified BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard.

Razer has announced a range of Battlefeild 3 Collector’s Edition gaming peripherals, which are based around top-end items from Razer's current range, and will feature Battlefield 3 artwork.

The keyboard is based around the BlackWidow Ultimate design, which uses Cherry keys and will cost $140. There will also be a BF3-themed Imperator mouse, with its trademark adjustable thumb buttons, which will cost $80.

To go with those PC peripherals, there's a Scarab hardcover mouse mat, which features the Razer Fractal 2.0 surface to aid tracking; this will cost $40.

For those that prefer their military thrills on a console, there's the Onza Tournament Edition Xbox 360 gamepad, which has adjustable-resistance thumbsticks and programmable Multi-Function buttons. This will cost $60.

According to Razer ‘This suite of gaming weaponry fully equips fans of Battlefield 3 to take on the most intense firefights and emerge victorious.

They’ll be empowered with competitive gaming features like faster key actuation on the Razer BlackWidow, increased swiping precision with the Razer Imperator, enhanced tracking accuracy with the Razer Scarab and fully customizable controls on the Razer Onza.


The range will even extend to other devices, with Razer announcing a BF3 silicone case for the iPhone 4 ($20) and a BF3 messenger bag 'constructed with tear-resistant,
weather-proof heavy-duty 1680D ballistic
' which will costs $80.

Do you need a peripheral upgrade for Battlefield 3, and if so, does the BF3 BlackWidow Ultimate suit your tastes? Let us know in the forum.

Amen. Why would you buy this tat...especially the bag?

Asking to be mugged with that bag, and when would you ever see the art-work on the mouse, surely hand + mouse covers it D:

If there's a market for it and all it takes is to plaster on a sticker, why not?

Sorry, you must have origin installed to use these.

Yes, even the bag.

Only stupid people with too much money and not enough common sense will buy this ridiculous crap.


I'd rather have the bag made with 1050 rather than shiitty 1680

The 1680 denier looks very similar to the 1050 when it is new, but it is actually not as strong as double weave 1050 denier and gets fuzzy as it wears.

I wouldnt pay extra for peripherals that Razer put a sticker on just to make profit.

If people are willing to buy, people are willing to sell.
Am sure if there previous attempts had failed they would have stopped. This would mean that they are making money from it.

its not even classy looking its just a sticker of the box cover, perhaps a silver raised logo or something could have been quite cool but this just looks stupid

Razer made that Tron mouse, right? That was pretty cool.
This is just... well, dumb.

They also made a set of StarCraft 2 gear and SW:TOR gear, all three sets featured uniquely designed keyboards and mice (and more) meant to either provide performance features tailored to each game, or at least stylistically respresent the game in a more meaningful way than a sticker on an existing product. It's still all branded gear meant to sell products simply by recognition of the licensed product it's themed after, but at least a buyer recieves an item which can't be purchased in an unbranded form. There might be some who actually want, say, the SC2 "Spectre" mouse for the shape and features of it regardless of or in addition to the SC2 branding.

Other manufacturers such as SteelSeries also produce a variety of branded gear ranging from midly modified versions of unbranded mice such as their "Diablo III Mouse" to more custom mice such as their "WoW Mouse" which has software to aid in WoW keybinding. They also have their Shift and Zboard series' of keyboards which are effectively identical keyboards with different stickers.

The worst part is that this all plays off of what is, deep in our hearts, the modder spirit. People love seeing a custom case, mouse or keyboard mod showing off one's favorite game or manufacturer and, most of all, people love being unique. These products offer that at a mere $10 fee, the market will never go away so we'll just keep seeing these products.

Ugh. I hate things like this. They stuck a sticker on a mouse. Don't see why you would pay more.
