Razer Makes "PC Gaming is Not Dead" Teaser Page

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 47 comments

We'll find out more this Friday.

Razer, a maker of many PC gaming accessories, erected a cryptic teaser page at the domain PCGamingIsNotDead.com. There it promises to bring something special on August 26th for the gamer who cherishes the open system of the PC and has ill feelings towards shoddy console ports.

What could it be? Your guess is as good as ours. Maybe it's the triumphant return of the floppy drive.

    agreed with above Ep 3 comment. the day it happens is the day I win the lottery. AND hell freezes over.

    BUT - could this have something to do with Deus Ex 3? same release date...and the game IS supposed to not simply be a port of the console version...DX11 and all that? Well, whatever happens on the 26.08.2011 ...it'll be my birthday! :D

    Could the surprise release of Ep.3 be somehow sponsored by Razer?

    IMHO, PC Gaming is not dead just like desktop PCs themselves will never be dead. There is a very good chance that desktop PCs will always be more capable than portable counterparts or hardware that is dedicated to some sub-portion of computer applicability.

    Agree, I have 4 games on my short list, all for the PC.
    SkyRim, RAGE, Deus Ex and Battlefield 3.

    What about that concept computer that razor was building, the switchblade? http://www.razerzone.com/switchblade This is what I think they could introduce.

    Who cares what it is...
    Razer overcharges for hardware and I won't be buying this either.

    I could buy a 5 dollar keyboard that would work just a good as the keyboards they make. If you buy razer you are paying for the brand name.

    I love my 17 button Razor Naga Epic mouse. Tell me when you find one for $5. ;p

    No business overcharges for any product. Each business follows market trends and if consumers didn't like the price as a whole, razor would either lower their prices or be out of business.

    Just because you don't like paying for their products doesn't mean others don't. Be happy with what you like and leave others to be happy with theirs!

    razer is pretty pricey, but the products that i buy from them (for hardcore gaming) i couldn't find anywhere else.

    Ex:
    http://store.razerzone.com/store/razerusa/en_US/pd/productID.169418900

    and

    http://store.razerzone.com/store/razerusa/en_US/pd/productID.221675100/parentCategoryID.35156900/categoryId.53491100

    i know Belkin used to make a nostromo but couldn't find it in any of the stores near me. I could not play an mmo without the naga. It's life changing.

    Most enlightened people know PC gaming isn't dead at all - Sales are up on a year by year basis. Its only the small minded people who don't understand the PC sales in the "charts" don't include the evolved pc way of game distribution - Steam and the like.

    The retail charts only includes the ancient disc sales made in retail that only have 20-30% of the PC sales now according to most experts. Its a shame that Steam won't release numbers and same with the publishers but then they would have a hard time defending the frankly poor made console ports!

    I wish they'd make a ergonomic gaming keyboard with backlight. Some of us old fogies need the ergonomic for our old wrists and bones, while we are working, and there's plenty of typing when you're playing games too.

    That keyboard looks a LOT like a COMMODORE 64.
