Gaming peripheral manufacturer Razer insists that PC gaming is not dead, and that it is time to come to “stand up against shoddy console ports and sub-par console graphics.” What exactly Razer is planning to do will be unveiled later this week, with an announcement that will redefine the gaming industry.
On its website, a message from Razer states that PC gaming is not dead. It also has an email registration link that the company will use to confirm if the user is a human and “not a robot sent to spy on our gaming world domination plans.”
Not much is known about what Razer is up to, but whatever it may be, it is big enough for them to use a full-page advertisement in the Wall Street Journal, teasing an announcement of a new product on August 26th, the first day of the Penny Arcade Expo in Seattle.
“We are more than 300 million PC gamers worldwide,” said Razer’s open letter to Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo that was published in the Wall Street Journal. “And this legion is growing every day. Today there are more PC gamers than all console gamers combined and we have been silent in the face of the closed gaming systems that have been propagated. We look forward to an open world where console and PC gamers will stand side by side as gamers in arms.”
Some reports say that Razer may be releasing a successor to the Switchblade or something more impressive. I guess we’ll have to wait until the 26th to know.
