Here at Decerto we not only provide you with coverage of teams and events, but also in-depth reviews for your reading pleasure. For a long time, the world of console peripherals was limited to headsets and capture cards, however within the last year or so the market has expanded exponentially with companies vying for their share. One of these companies manufacturing is Gunnar. They provide gaming eyewear sported by some of the most influential digital personalties online. This list includes the likes of CoD personality Mike ‘Hastr0’ Rufail and the MLG organisation, showing a firm dedication to gaming. Today I'll be reviewing the MW3 Gunnars edition glasses. Sporting a decorative case and sleeve for protection, it was an impressive start. The frame of the glasses is constructed from brushed ‘gunmetal’, a rather substantial one in comparison with other editions of the glasses. Also evident on the glasses is the affiliation with MW3; embezzled into the two arms is the exact typography seen on the front of your MW3 case. Obviously you cannot forget the glare reducing lenses that Gunnars are famous for, always with the small Gunnar writing in the top left of the right lens.As many users of this site may be wary of, a long stint in front of your XBOX can cause considerable amounts of fatigue in your vision. The ultimate aim of the Gunnars is to reduce this, enabling longer sessions with less fatigue and as a result better performance. As competitive gamers you will all no doubt be aware of the difference that one kill can make. The glasses are not heavy, nor are they cumbersome; however there seems to be a fair stigma around these circulating through the community. Many players believe that wearing Gunnars is unfashionable and whilst I agree to some extent that they aren't the most attractive of glasses, they aren’t exactly hideous. Given the fact that they are also presented in an easily transported hard case that you could just put in your bag without any worries, you only need to have them on when you're playing. The cost of the glasses is rather extreme however, with my model currently retailing at £80. When you think that all they comprise of is a small amount of metal with some coloured glass, the price seems unwarranted until you use them yourself. I for one was definitely a sceptic before I received them, I doubted their ability to help me maintain concentration during long sessions, and whilst the difference isn’t blatantly obvious, you can feel that you have more energy and are willing to play harder and for longer. One of the main ways we decide on what we’re going to buy is whether it’s useful enough to warrant the outlay. The Gunnars are no exception, their primary function is obvious, however there are more uses to them that are easily over looked. For instance, I find using my Gunnars whilst on the computer greatly reduces eye strain and makes for easier viewing. That being said, there are a plethora of free programs that do similar things such as f.lux, therefore making this secondary usage redundant. It is easy to see how purchasing the prescription ones may be of more use, for instance whilst at work or driving if you feel necessary. The overwhelming theme is that although these can be used for a multitude of different things, they simply won’t be and it’s a strange thing to comprehend. Other than the huge frame present on the MW3 editions, the others with the small frame/no frame look no different to normal glasses that I wear on a daily basis.In conclusion, the glasses provide a service that doesn't seem particularly necessary nor worth the outlay. But when you have them on you can tell the difference midway through a long stint, whether it be no more migraines or simply improved concentration; they fulfil their purpose well. These glasses are potentially being underutilised within the European community and could make a difference to someone who does suffer eye strain due to long hours on the console. They're not for everyone, but if you need them, you'll notice a difference.
