We’re at a point now where gaming mice have to not only perform like a sports car, but look the part as well. There’s a ton of manufacturers out there, who hit that itch. You’ve got Razer’s reliable brand of high performance mice, while the R.A.T.9 still looks like the love-child of the office photocopier and a Decepticon. Then you’ve got Logitech, who usually reach a middle ground between performance and style. That idea hasn’t exactly changed with the G502 Proteus mouse. But the quality is undoubtedly there in a futuristic piece of design.
I got an interesting EEDAR report in my mailbox yesterday, all about which brands of peripherals PC gamers preferred. It featured the usual suspects; Razer, Logitech, MadCatz, Steelseries, Roccat and just about all the other big name PC gaming peripheral brands.
I’ve got a soft spot for mice. Not the furry kind mind you, because as a child I was always on Tom’s side when he was receiving horrendous physical abuse from Jerry in the Saturday morning cartoons. I’m talking computer mice, and specifically gaming mice. We’re in an age now where such devices are no longer just USB-tethered navigation devices with a gigantic ball inside of them. The gaming mouse of today is a specialised device, something that is meant for specific games and scenarios. And Logitech is looking at those markets for their new G303 Daedalus Apex mouse.
A good mouse could mean the difference between life and death. Who was that snotty email for – your boss or the company that gave you poor service? Chances are, a bad mouse will result in a missclick, sending it off to your boss, which will inevitably lead to the loss of your job. This is all hypothetical of course, but it could happen! With this in mind, I took the Logitech M280 for a spin. Are its clicks accurate enough to keep you your job?
Picking out a keyboard used to be easy. Does it have the right keys? Check. Does it look sturdy? Double check. Does it come with some fancy features that make it stand out? Check again. You can still pretty much do that, but gaming keyboards in particular come with more features and buttons than the dashboard on the Starship Enterprise. Or at least Logitech's new G910 does.
Lately the PC peripheral market has been dominated by Razer and SteelSeries - at least locally. Logitech has receded in the background over the years, especially when it comes to specialized PC gaming hardware. That's slowly changing, and at rAge this year they had two fairly great products to show off.
Logitech hosted the Dream Team Cup a few weeks ago. The purpose of the event was to help them identify a team which they could work with moving forward into the eSport scene. It seems In-Finity Gaming had what it takes, as they have secured the sponsorship leading up to the DGC
The rAge expo is drawing closer and closer. With it comes all the usual tech and expo stuff, but also the Do Gaming Championship. Logitech have come forward with an interesting initiative leading up to the event. They are looking for a team to sponsor, and will choose one following the Logitech Dream Team Cup which will happen this weekend.
Last week, I looked at a series of headsets. In the comments, a few of you asked for me to review the Logitech G930. However, that's an older headset, and we try to keep up with the times. So, instead, I'm reviewing the G430. How does it stack up compared to similar headsets in its price range?
Logitech, once one of the very best in PC gaming peripherals, kinda just skulked out of the market, leaving people like Steelseries and Razer to take over. Now they’re back in a big way with a new range of their “G” branded gaming peripherals. One such peripheral is their top-of-the-line G19s keyboard, which packs a wealth of functionality in to it that you didn’t know you even wanted.
At some point in this hobby, we’ve all plonked down some serious cash for some serious extension to our gaming habits. I’m talking about input devices that were meant for one kind of game only, from joysticks through to steering wheels. And chances are, you’ve probably bought a piece of Logitech hardware when doing so. Generally decent and not badly priced, Logitech peripherals have been a mainstay on store shelves for years. That’s about to change though, as the company is deciding to draw the curtain on producing such gear.
Zaps Online recently launched their New! Improved! online portal and to go with that they giving away some pretty stellar gaming goodies. This month, the prize is a SAPPHIRE Vapor-X HD5750 1GB GDDR5 PCIE Graphics card, based on the Radeon 5000 series. A prize that sweet means the competition must be pretty difficultÂ or restrictive, right? Well, No.
According to CVG, their internet ninja spies have uncovered information that Logitech is crafting an external peripheral thatâ€™ll allow existing PSP users use their extensive UMD collections on Sonyâ€™s new drive-less PSPGo!
The only problem, according to the source, is that the peripheral would make the sleek and sexy Go! a little bulky, nullifying its point, and making the regular PSP a smarter buy. While all 27 PSP Go! owners worldwide have been clamouring for a solution allowing them the use of their UMDs, I think the chance of this seeing release is slim. An external UMD drive would blow the doors off an already alarming PSP piracy problem â€“ something Sony's probably not exactly keen to let happen.

You have to be a severe Guitar Hero fan to fork out the money for these but if you are that dedicated then these are probably the best two attachments you can get for Guitar Hero World Tourâ€¦
In a nutshell they are simply wireless versions of the drumset and guitar you can get with Guitar Hero or Guitar Hero World Tour, however what a beautiful nutshell they are.
The Guitar comes with a Maple neck, Rosewood fingerboard and metal frets. The strum bar and buttons are thankfully virtually silent apparently due to some rubber dome technologyâ€¦ you know the stuff they use in keyboards to make them silent?
So Logitech has announced yet another absurdly priced, â€œbulge-inducingâ€ guitar. I donâ€™t know, but I think Iâ€™m over high-end fake guitars.Â Itâ€™s just thatâ€¦well, my room is kinda starting to look like the playpen of a nerdy dwarf who has an infatuation for plastic. I mean, donâ€™t get me wrong, this guitar is beautiful. Wait, wait, wait. Is it right to even call it that? Guitar? Okay, um, thisâ€¦gaming peripheral, is one beautiful piece of work.Â I mean itâ€™s got metal tuning pegs and a rosewood fingerboard, not to mention a full leather strap and a reinforced strumming button. This baby is glorious, except for one thingâ€¦itâ€™s gonna cost you about $200 (thatâ€™s over R2000, not including shipping, as you most probably wonâ€™t get it here).
