Did you think dropping $US60 on a copy of Mass Effect 3 next month would be enough to save the Earth from the impending Reaper invasion? Is the Earth truly safe if you don't buy a Mass Effect branded keyboard, mouse, Xbox 360 controller or iPhone case?
Of course it is. This is reality, and the Earth is, for the most part, completely fine. The circle of commerce continues to turn, as BioWare and Razer team up to create an incredibly sexy line of peripherals based on the third instalment of Commander Shepard's science fiction epic.
How much do you love Mass Effect? Is it a $US24.99 iPhone case sort of love, or does your passion burn hotter than a $US209.99 wireless gaming headset? There's an N7-logo'd device for every price range.
This is one of the most expansive peripheral lines I've seen tied to a major video game launch. Between the mouse, the headset, the double-sided mouse pad and the headset, you can transform your entire desktop into Earth central command. Tossing in the bag, tuck your iPhone inside, and you've spent a great deal of cash on the war effort.
All of this can be yours come March, if the price is right. Flip through the gallery for official product descriptions and how much each is worth in little sheets of government-controlled paper.
