E3 just wrapped up this week, but a whole ton of new gear was introduced in the few days that the convention ran. Including these. SteelSeries, a company known for their PC gaming peripherals, announced a new family of exclusive Diablo III accessories, co-designed with Blizzard Entertainment. There's a lot of big names attached to the release, and it's fitting for it all to launch at a show as mega as E3. The Diablo III Mouse, Headset and a pair of QcK mousepads made their debut, with the Witch Doctor and Barbarian boasting illumination features that supposedly highlight the next installment of the Diablo series.
The mouse ($69) has a laser sensor with up to 5000 CPI, seven ergonomically positioned buttons that can survive relentless punishment with a guaranteed lifespan of 10 million clicks, an ambidextrous shape and a matte grip. The headset ($119) touts leather earcups, 50mm driver units, and it's the first illuminated headset from the company. Coming from a total of 18 LED lights throughout the headset, the red glow is seen in two places each on the right and left side – surrounding the edge of each ear cup, and the three Diablo slashes.
The mousepads have a non-slip base, and while the Barbarian includes official character artwork of the barbarian class along with the deep reds and earthy tones associated with this brutal fighter, the SteelSeries Diablo III QcK Witch Doctor Edition summons the cooler, green and purple tones that are linked to this new and powerful summoning character. Each will have a $14.99 / €14.99 MSRP. So, anyone ready to get their game on?
