Thermaltake Level 10 M Gaming Mouse
What do you get when a hardware peripherals company collaborates with BMW to deliver a gaming mouse! Well, that’s exactly what Thermaltake has done. The Level 10 M Gaming mouse is the design collaboration by Thermaltake and BMW Group Designworks USA, since 2009. The body is made up of aluminium, while also being lightweight. This is a completely customizable mouse and its technical highlights include 3D Steering Axis Movement, solid Aluminium base and an air-through Ventilation System. The mouse is available in three different colours – diamond black, iron white and military green.
For your gaming needs!
The Level 10 M has been rated high on efficiency, as much as aesthetics. It’s going to keep your hands cool and dry even in the most intense of gaming sessions and with the 8200 DPI sensor, you’re getting unmatched precision. Well, the features list isn’t over yet. This mouse has two separate top and bottom halves that can be adjusted to get the required height and angle. Not satisfied yet? You’ve got 5 onboard button configuration profiles with 11 programmable buttons. With this mouse, it’s all about elegance, unmistakeable style and superiority that will transcend onto your games.
Nyko Free fighter joystick
Nyko, this year announced a bold new product line at E3 2012 that aims to enhance our experience with the evolving range of consoles, handhelds and mobile devices that today's gamers enjoy. One of their stand out devices was the Nyko free fighter joystick that is reminiscent of the button mashing arcade games at gaming parlours.
The Nyko Free Fighter
The Free Fighter for PlayStation 3 is an arcade-quality fight stick with eight face buttons, and a unique ambidextrous design for right or left-handed use. Compatible with all standard fighting games, the Free Fighter is made with authentic Japanese Sanwa Denshi arcade-quality parts and includes an expandable base for comfort and security during laptop use. The Free Fighter includes four fully customizable macro buttons for quick access to combos, as well as two variable speed turbo buttons for fast, slow or user-created tap speed. The Free Fighter will be available at select retail stores nationwide in September 2012 and will retail for an MSRP of $179.99.
Along with this, the company also debuted a controller for Android tablets. The PlayPad Pro is Nyko's full-sized wireless Bluetooth gaming controller for Android devices that features dual analog sticks, a d-pad, face buttons and shoulder bumpers for a console-style control experience on Android devices. That would definitely add to the fun quotient, while gaming on the quad-core tablets now!
Pacific AV8R flight stick
Joysticks are never going to go out of fashion. For flight simulator enthusiasts, atleast. With Saitek’s new AV8R for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, you’ll be getting all that you require to take control of the skies. It’s lightweight and comes with a sturdy base to keep you firmly in your seat as you beat those pilots from behind enemy lines and engage in close combat dogfights. The flight stick comes with three buttons, a realistic trigger and a POV analog stick. It’s pretty portable and the handle is removable, thereby allowing convenient storage. One of the inbuilt features is the integrated throttle that enhances realism levels and the aircraft inspired toggle switches.
The Pacific AV8R
The AV8RR is styled after WWII combat aircraft and the Pacific AV8R FlightStick imparts the sensation of true flight. It features a historically inspired grip with a soft-touch rubber finish for extreme comfort during extended missions and the precise control required to conquer the enemy and rule the skies is in your hands. The device includes a custom decal kit, and the detachable leg supports for versatile gameplay. Rule the skies with flamboyance!
So, that sums up our list of awesome gaming gadgets. These not only help you to get the much needed (and often elusive) gaming edge, but also have an unconventionally high amount of ‘cool’ factor associated with them to give you a fair amount of bragging rights over your rivals. It’s game on!
