Logitech intros MW3 peripherals, DICE releases BF3 beta stats

By on October 19, 2011, 8:30 AM

Logitech has unveiled a Call of Duty-branded mouse and keyboard ahead of Modern Warfare 3's November 8 launch. Besides the new G9X's Activision-endorsed cosmetics, you won't spot any differences from the standard device, including the price, which will remain at $99.99 when the promo version launches in November. Considering the G9X's solid 84 rating in our Product Finder, that's probably a good thing.

The mouse features on-the-fly programmable DPI adjustments (200 to 5700DPI), a dual-mode scroll wheel that lets you toggle between the standard notched action and frictionless scrolling. It has onboard memory with support for up to five profiles so you can easily change configurations including LED color, while hardware customizations include a weight cartridge and an interchangeable shell depending on your grip type.

Meanwhile, the G105 seems to be a relatively unique design, though there are some obvious parallels between existing G-series keyboards. It comes with night vision-themed green LED backlighting, six programmable G-keys that can be recorded on-the-fly and have three modes (supporting up to 18 possible macro combinations). Pricing will be set at $79.99 and the G105 is due sometime this month ahead of the G9X.

In a separate announcement today, Activision rivals at EA have published statistics about Battlefield 3's open beta. It's said that 47 billion shots were fired during the testing phase with the longest headshot measured at 635.6 meters, 21 million M-COM stations were destroyed, 2.2 billion health was regenerated, 19 million people lost their dog tags in a knife fight and a whopping 1.5 billion digital soldiers were killed.

Looks like someone spray-painted their mouse.

The stats are more interesting than whatever merchandise (A.K.A. crap) Activision decides to pump out.

45 billions shots fired and on 1.5 billions soldiers died, what a waste of bullets

Guest said:

So you're telling me after only 2ish weeks of war, 1.5 billion people where killed? Oh lawds.. I wonder if they'll release the most used item in each class? Money bets for primary the UMP-45.

lol That one small paragraph about the BF3 stats was more interesting than the majority of the article about what Activision has to create to bribe more people to play their game. After literally a years wait for BF3, it is less than a week of official release. I don't think I've ever been this excited for a video game to come out. Bravo EA and DICE.
