Razer’s StarCraft II products quick look.
GITEX is home of all technologies new and cool, and Razer is not one to be left behind when it comes to offering the latest performance products for PC gamers. While Razer products are quite a sight to behold on their own, with aggressive styles incorporated into ergonomically efficient designs, it never hurts to have some customised offerings every once in a while.
And what better product tie-in than for (arguably) the most popular PC game in the world right now: StarCraft II. Razer has designed their StarCraft II inspired keyboard (Marauder), headset (Banshee) and mouse (Spectre) based on the Terrans. The styling cues are so reminiscent of the atypical Terran ultra-futuristic design that these products wouldn’t feel out of place in one of StarCraft II’s cutscenes. That is if they still use PCs 500 years from now with battle scars all over them.
The basic tech used within the Marauder keyboard and the Spectre mouse comes with the same bells and whistles as the rest of Razer’s high-end keyboards and mice; 5600dpi, 1 kHz Ultrapolling, APM Lightning System and all that jazz. The Banshee headset also comes with a full equalizer as well. All three components have the ability to change the colour as well, although I doubt many would want to stray from the standard blue representing the official StarCraft II logo.
Price wise these are a little expensive, but that’s to be expected with such a tie-in. Both the Marauder keyboard and the Banshee headset are priced at USD 119.99 (AED 440), while the Spectre mouse will come in at USD 79.99 (AED 294). All three products will be available in retail very soon as they will be launched with BlizzCon 2010 at the end of this week.
