E3 Expo 2011: Wrap-Up CoverageFri, Jun 10, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Razer Star Wars Peripherals & Sound Blaster Tactic3D
During the 2011 E3 Expo, Razer announced the Star Wars The Old Republic gaming keyboard geared towards the new game of the same name. The SWTOR keyboard features an LCD track panel built in with multi-touch support. Game information, sounds, faction emblems and more can be displayed on the panel.
We spent some quality time at the Nyko booth (not just because of their booth babes!) but because of their very clever Nyko Zoom for Microsoft’s Xbox Kinect. The Zoom is a little lens that fits over the Kinect that decreases the space you need to play.
No more moving furniture out of the way so you can back up to get into the Kinect’s range. The Nyko Zoom just clips on to the Kinect sensor so you can play more comfortably in your hous. At $29.99, it is a must-have for any Kinect player.
Another device from Creative Labs is the Recon3D. The Recon3D is a USB device that allows the company’s SoundBlaster technology to be used on consoles. This technology’s chip size has now been reduced to were it can fit into a single USB device. By putting both devices together Creative Labs is offering an improvement in sound technology on a console. The Tatic3D headphones will go for $150 and the Recon3D will go for $130.
That just about does it for our E3 Recap. We tried to give you a glimpse into some of the upcoming hardware that we found at this year’s E3 Expo. You can see tons more photos from our week at E3 if you visit our Facebook page here.
