MW3 Gaming Eyewear From Gunnar – Gaming Glasses.. Really?
Yup, you heard right.. Gunnar Optiks have worked with Activision to produce specialized glasses for MW3.
The eyewear is made to protect your eyes whilst giving you a visual advantage over other players. They do this by increasing the contrast and enhancing details to provide you with a much clearer and sharper view, which we’re guessing will help you spot the enemy quicker? At the same time the tinted lenses will help reduce glare from your monitor so you can focus for longer without having to worry about getting dry eyes.
They haven’t been lazy on the design of these glasses either. You’ll get spring hinges built into a magnesium / aluminium body with adjustable nose pads to ensure flexibility and wide coverage lenses to provide you with maximum vision. They dont look too bad either with the whole frame decorated with a battle-scar finish and of course “Call of Duty MW3″ engraved onto the side.
The eyewear will cost $99 (pre-order here). On purchase you will also receive a Limited Edition MW3 branded carrying case and a Limited Edition MW3 branded pouch. See images below:
Do I Really Need Gaming Eyewear to Play MW3?
So.. do you really need a set of glasses to stay competitive? Well according to Gunnars Optiks they help with:
- Higher contrast resulting in better visual accuracy and efficiency.
- Increase detail to produce clearer and sharper visuals.
- Assist with reducing glare from your monitor while helping to improve focus.
- Improves visual endurance when for those gaming marathons.
- Reduces eye fatigue thus less eye dryness.
If your going to take their word for it, then it seems pretty obvious, right?
Do we agree? To put it simply.. no.
For sure, we’re all guilty of gaming until 3am, at which time you have a banging headache and your eyes feel like they’re ready to fall out, which can be kind of irritating. However, we think it makes a bit more sense to just go for a 15 minute break and grab some food every now and then instead of forking out $99 for a pair of hyped up sunglasses that’ll have your mates laughing at you for the next 6 months.
How about you, would you consider purchasing a pair of these?
