Images: Microsoft SideWinder X4 Keyboard

Microsoft announced a new gaming keyboard--the SideWinder X4--built to combat in-game ghosting. Available in March for $59.99, the keyboard can recognize presses of up to 26 keys at once and features backlighting, macro keys (up to 18 per profile), and automatic macro repetition. According to Microsoft, "Because each key is scanned independently by the keyboard hardware, each key press is correctly detected regardless of how many other keys are being pressed at the same time." Check out images of the new keyboard, including shots of the internals, below.
