Razer mouse

Razer has announced a new line of products to accompany the launch of Battlefield 3 later this year. For PC players, there's the BlackWidow Ultimate keyboard, which features backlit keys, macro keys and a USB passthrough, among other things. PC users also get the Imperator mouse, which features programmable buttons and a 6400dpi 4G Dual Sensor System, which is a lot of dpis, if you ask us. Finally, there's a mouse pad that features a "fractal 2.0 surface coating" and also, we're guessing, a conveniently flat shape. The keyboard, mouse and pad will be available for $140, $80 and $40 repsectively.

Meanwhile, on the console side of things, the Xbox gets a Battlefield 3 edition of the Onza Tournament Edition controller, complete with analog sticks with adjustable resistance. The Onza will run $60. Finally, Razer shifts from gaming accessories to personal accessories with a Battlefield 3 iPhone case and messenger bag for $20 and $80, respectively.

The entire Battlefield line is expected to launch alongside the game on October 25. Check out the gallery below for entirely too many images.
