More than likely, this is for a new product. The letter mentions that "will seek to end
the silence and bring a new age of openness and innovation to all gaming" on August 26th- but it's interesting to note that, while Razer rails in defense of of the PC side of the industry, it does so while it just began production on a series of console (specifically Xbox 360) control pads and headsets. Interesting indeed... click through to read the letter-
To our friends
and the Wii,
We have all heard the rhetoric about
the demise of PC Gaming—the stories
that console gaming will take over all
gaming and that PC gamers will be left
with shoddy ports of console titles.
The rumors of our untimely demise
have been greatly exaggerated. We
are more than 300 million PC gamers
worldwide 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, the PC Gamers, have been here
since the beginning and have seen
the industry grow to surpass movies
and music, and we look forward to an
open world where console and PC
gamers will stand side by side as
gamers in arms.
We are here today to tell you, that on
the 26th of August, we will seek to end
the silence and bring a new age of
openness and innovation to all gaming.
Together we shall remind you - that
PC Gaming is NOT dead.
for the PC gamers
of the world
