Razer announced two new gaming peripherals at this year's E3 conference, the Artemis concept controller and a new ambidextrous mouse called the Taipan. The Artemis was designed with PiranhaGames and Infinite Game Publishing with the intent of creating more immersive gameplay for MechWarrior Online, a game set to release later this year. The product page informs us (with a lot of capital letters) that the Artemis will have a fully customizable keypad, a screen to provide additional in-game information, and a programmable joystick with tactile feedback. No word yet on when the controller will be released, or how much it will cost when that time comes.
For gamers seeking something more traditional, Razer announced its latest ambidextrous gaming mouse, the Taipan. It's completely symmetrical with rubberized grips on the side and 9 programmable buttons. The Taipan's 8200dpi 4G Dual Sensor system is a step up from last year's Mamba that clocked in at 6400dpi, making it Razer's highest sensitivity gaming mouse yet. The Taipan ships in July for $79.99.
