Looks Like Razer is Working on Virtual Reality, Too
For those of you now looking for virtual reality alternatives after the Facebook acquisition of Oculus Rift, it appears Razer is about to take a seat at the VR table.
Shortly after Minecraft creator and Rift backer Markus “Notch” Persson publicly pulled his support of Oculus after Facebook shelled out $2 billion for the company, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan responded via Twitter:
@notch perhaps we can help out. Will be in touch.

No further details from Razer at this point. We’ve contacted the company for comment and will update this post with any response. One thing is for sure: if there was ever a perfect time to make an announcement about a new virtual reality project, now would be it.
At GDC 2014 last week, Sony unveiled its own PlayStation 4 VR headset, codenamed Morpheus. Microsoft has also stated that it has been tinkering with VR tech for some time, but it has yet to make any official announcements about virtual reality on the Xbox One.
Oculus, Sony, Razer, and most likely Microsoft. It seems there will be plenty of VR choices in the not-too-distant near future.
