ROCCAT Studios Teasing A PC Gaming Peripheral Announcement

In twelve days, ROCCAT Studios plans to wow us with what it believes to be the “smartest way forward” for PC gaming.

A teaser website the company put up asks the question, “Isn’t PC gaming dead?” For years, we’ve been told that PC gaming is dead, when in fact a quick glance at Steam numbers would tell you it’s very much alive.

The website goes on to say,

With all the talk lately, you’d think PC gaming was over. Some say PC gaming isn’t dead, but think they need to breathe new life into it now and then with yet another “groundbreaking” reinvention. But is all that necessary?

Rhetorical questions are a dime a dozen, but ROCCAT finishes by promising an answer:

Soon we’ll tell you what we think is the smartest way forward.

A countdown timer implies the answer will come in 12 days, 6 hours, and 34 minutes — as of this posting.

In the website’s Shoutbox, someone posted the following under the name Razer (censorship our own):

f*** off ****** i decide when gaming is dead and release a expensive laptop

The poster is, of course, referencing Razer’s Blade gaming laptop. As much as I love Razer, gaming laptops isn’t the answer, so I’m eager to see what ROCCAT has up its sleeve.

Any guesses?

I have it on good authority that this will be an announcement for the Roccat Kone+ v3. They’re making a big deal about it because unlike the first two Roccat Kone’s this one actually has a mouse wheel that doesnt fall apart and/or scroll in the wrong direction after two weeks of use.

Its probably something stupid like another laptop, anyone willing to build up hype like this has it in for making what ever it is vary expensive.
