Back at the beginning of June we told you about the upcoming Limited Edition Gears of War 3 Xbox 360 bundle, which as we mentioned comes with a price tag of $399. For those of you that haven’t read the article in question, the bundle comes with a special Gears of War branded Xbox 360 (with 320GB hard drive), two GoW 3-branded wireless controllers and a copy of the game.
We now have some more exciting news for those of you that are waiting for the Gears of War 3 game to arrive as according to Chris Carlson over at ripten.com, peripheral manufacturer Mad Catz has just unveiled a new range of licensed ‘Gears of War 3’ gaming headsets for the Xbox 360, which are expected to arrive alongside the game when it launches in September this year.
The most expensive product on the list is the Gears of War 3 7.1 Dolby surround sound headset, which comes with official GoW 3 artwork and a price tag of $179.99. This model is performance-tuned for Xbox Live voice chat, and comes with independent game and voice volume controls, pulsating LED lighting effects and a detachable, flexible microphone with mute.
An added bonus with the Gears of War 3 7.1 Dolby surround sound headset is the Selective Voice Monitoring (SVM), which provides users with the option of hearing their own voice through the headset. Next up on the list is the Gears of War 3 performance stereo gaming headset, which comes with a price tag of $99.99. This model also comes with official GoW 3 artwork.
This noise-isolating headset comes with luxurious padding and an adjustable headrail. Other features include precision-balanced 40mm audio drivers, a detachable, flexible microphone with mute and independent voice and game volume controls.
