Take your gaming audio experience to the next level with the Astro MixAmp ($100). Simply plug an optical audio cable into the main unit, connect your favorite headset to the wireless receiver unit, and prepare to be blown away by 7.1 channel Dolby Surround Sound. The MixAmp uses a 5.8 GHz connection to ensure minimal interference, and also provides an enhanced mix of game/voice audio. Your significant other/roommates/pets will thank you.
Gearing up for the imminent release of Gran Turismo 5? You'd be hard pressed to find a better setup than the Vision Racer VR3 ($1,300). This dedicated racing rig features a fiberglass racing seat attached to a stainless steel frame, with pedal and gearshift mounts and a LCD and console stand. Just add an HDTV, Logitech steering wheel, PS3, sound system, and, of course, games.
When it's do or die, timing and precision are everything. The Cyborg R.A.T. 9 Gaming Mouse delivers zero latency, a precision aim mode, and twin eyer laser sensors allowing you to hit your target every time with the same lightening fast speed and accuracy you produce. With two custom lithium-ion battery cells, you'll always have one charged and ready to go for up to 4 days of normal use. Although, we do recommend pausing for things like showers.
Put your love for gaming on display with the Consollection Poster ($17). A collection of over 38 years of gaming history illustrated with 170 miniature videogame systems, in chronological order, complete with the name, manufacturer, and release date is the ultimate compliment to your gaming lair.
Reach your game playing potential with the latest gaming weapon, the Dawn of Audio. The Psyko 5.1 PC Gaming Headset ($300) features five speakers and a subwoofer that creates 3D sound the same way a room system does, letting you to hear where every bullet and blast comes from. With no Digital Signal Processing and no latency, your sound won't be altered improving both your positional awareness and your reaction.
We've seen it in countless demos and heard about it through prototype hands-ons and vague rumors, but Project Natal is real, and it's ready to play. The Kinect for Xbox 360 ($150) is Microsoft's killer motion tracking add-on, featuring a camera, audio sensors, motion-sensing tech to track 48 points of movement on your body, and the ability to recognize faces and voices. All of which works together to give you a unique, motion-driven gaming experience without the need for silly things like controllers.
We're not going to say you'll look like a tool when using this thing, because if you're in the market for the Mad Catz Cyborg F.L.Y. 9 Wireless Flight Stick ($100), you probably don't give a damn. Made for the Xbox 360, this insane peripheral is the first flight stick given Microsoft's official 360 seal of approval, and features robotic looks, cyborg-worthy accuracy, and the ability to adjust the handle length, head angle, and handle rake angle, which either means the angle at which the handle protrudes from the base, or the "angle" it's going to use when trying to extort money from you for cleaning your yard.
Move over, Wii. The PlayStation Move ($100) is bringing motion-based gaming to the PS3, in full 1080p glory. The system will use a main motion controller, a "sub-controller," like a more advanced version of the Wii's nunchuk, and the Playstation Eye camera to offer precise detection of movement, angle, and absolute position in 3D space, which should make for some really competitive games of Virtua Tennis. As for the weird ball thing on the end of the main controller, it helps with motion tracking, lights up in different colors to notify you of stuff, and is made from some soft/squishy rubber material, which will hopefully result in less idiots chucking their controllers through the front of their flat screens.
Bring a little light into your sun-deprived PC gaming world with the Logitech G110 Gaming Keyboard ($80). With both red and blue backlighting LEDs, the G110 lets you set just the right mixture of the two in software, and has other gaming-centric features like 12 programmable G-keys and three M-keys, great for quick-access macros and scripts, automatic game detection with Windows key disabling, an integrated 3.5mm headphone jack for connecting a headset or headphones, a spare USB 2.0 port, and both Mac and PC compatibility.
Could this no-name device give you more fun than your iPod and PSP combined? Sure sounds like it. The Pocket Retro Game Emulator ($100) plays NES, SNES, GBA, Sega Genesis, and Neo Geo roms, and when you're done with the classics, the device can play movie files, music files, view photos, read eBooks, and more. About the size of a GameBoy Micro, the device features 4GB of built-in storage, a mini SD slot, a 2.8 inch QVGA (320x240) LCD screen, a built-in FM radio, built-in stereo speakers, and an internal rechargeable li-battery.
Co-developed by Razer and THX Ltd., the Razer Mako 2.1 Speaker System ($400) promises sound to match its great looks. It is the first desktop system to employ THX's Ground Plane and Slot Speaker technologies, which uses a downward-firing design to eliminate distortion. The Mako also uses ClassHD digital amplifier technologies to manage the 300W RMS of total system power. It's like a home theater system on your desk.
