Razer Will Remind You That PC Gaming Isn’t Dead On August 26
So, Razer has some super-secret thing they’re going to announce this week at PAX. I don’t know what it is, but they think it’s big. So big, in fact, that they’ve taken out a page in the Wall Street Journal to hype up the reveal. Here’s the full text of the ad:
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.
They’ve set up a website based on this theme that will presumably on Friday have a bunch of deets about this new device. But for now it just has an old computer that reads the ad.
So what could this thing be? This is so hypetastic that I can’t imagine what it might be. Nothing my mind can conjure up would make nearly the impact that Razer thinks this thing is going to have on the world.
