Hey, there's this little game called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
coming out in a month or so and Logitech's got you covered if you want to deck your computer out in Modern Warfare 3 gear.
First up is the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105
, which has a cool night-vision green LED backlighting on the keys. There's six programmable G-keys and each can have three different macros or keys programmed to it. A nice thing is you can record macros on the fly in case you found something you use a lot during a game. Up to five keys can be pressed at once and there's the usual multimedia keys on there for you to control audio and video. $79.99 is the expected price and should be out this month.
The Logitech Laser Mouse G9X
continues with the popular mouse design that Logitech's had for a while now. The mouse has a DPI of up to 5700 and can be changed on the fly by increments of 200 DPI. The wheel can go both ratcheted or frictionless and you can add up to 28 grams of weight to make it feel better in your hand. Price will be $99.99 and out next month.
Both items feature the Modern Warfare 3 logo. I've used both the mouse and keyboard that these are based off of and both are solid. In fact, the G9's my current mouse of choice for gaming.

Ideal for power gamers, the new accessories make it easy and fun to customize your path to victory.
“The Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105 and the Logitech Laser Mouse G9X are perfect for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 enthusiasts who want the best in precision and customization for their gaming experience,” said Chris Pate, senior product marketing manager for gaming at Logitech. “Both devices let you jump right into the action with the power to perform complex maneuvers with confidence.”
Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105
The Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105 – the official keyboard of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 – lets you play long into the night with military-style, night-vision green LED backlighting. Featuring six programmable G-keys, each with three mode states, the Logitech Gaming Keyboard G105 provides up to 18 possible macro combinations per game. These macros let you perform single keystrokes or intricate multi-key combinations complete with mouse events, user-defined delays and repeating. New macros can even be recorded on the fly once you download the Logitech Gaming Software.
Multi-key input allows you to use up to five keys at once. You can perform multiple – and more complex – actions without the interference or ghosting that can occur on other keyboards. Plus, convenient media key controls put instant access to volume and mute, as well as start, stop, pause, forward and back functions, right at your fingertips. For added convenience, a game/desktop mode switch disables the Windows and Context Menu keys, so your game won’t be interrupted if you accidentally press the wrong keys.
Logitech Laser Mouse G9X
The Logitech Laser Mouse G9X’s gaming laser gives you game-changing precision at hand speeds up to 165 inches per second on the most popular gaming mouse pad surfaces. On-the-fly, adjustable dpi takes you from pixel-precise targeting (200 dpi) to lightning-fast maneuvers (up to 5700 dpi) without pausing the action, while full-speed USB delivers performance at up to 1000 reports per second. The MicroGear™ Precision Scroll wheel is perfect for weapon selection – or switch to frictionless hyper-fast scrolling to fly through long Web pages when you’re not playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
A weight-tuning system allows you to customize your mouse with up to 28 grams of extra weights that you can mix and match for more control. A custom color display also lets you choose the color of your LEDs from a wide color spectrum so you can match your mouse to your PC, your game, or your style.
