E3 2011: Razer to make Battlefield 3 and Mass Effect 3 products

Gaming PC peripheral maker Razer has had a very busy E3 2011. The company announced and showed off prototypes of its upcoming PC gaming mice, keyboards, and headsets designed for players of the upcoming MMO Star Wars The Old Republic. Then the company also announced plans to release new versions of its Razer Mamba and Razer Imperator gaming PC mice that have both a laser and optical sensor that it claims adds even more mouse sensitivity to the products, up to 6400 dpi.

Today Razer has yet another big E3 2011 related announcement. It revealed today that it has entered into an agreement with Electronic Arts to release products based on two upcoming EA games. One is Battlefield 3, the upcoming first person shooter from developer Digital Illusions that's due out on October 25. The other is Mass Effect 3, the sci-fi RPG from developer BioWare that's due out in the first quarter of 2012.

The products will include gaming PC mice and keyboards for PC gamers as well as headsets, Xbox 360 console controllers, bags and other items. The products will be released around the same time the games ship to stores. Razer previously worked with BioWare on a set of products based on its recent fantasy RG Dragon Age 2.

Meanwhile Razer's Switchblade 7-inch portable gaming PC is, well, still a prototype. Announced to great acclaim at CES 2011, the device was shown at E3 2011 inside a glass case. We have been told that there isn't a status update on when the Switchblade concept will become a reality.
