Razer Declares PC Gaming Lives

Razer announces their full page in today’s Wall Street Journal (Global Edition) which is "an open letter to Microsoft’s Xbox, Sony’s Playstation and Nintendo’s Wii consoles." In conjunction, they say they will offer a "major announcement on the 26th of August during PAX Prime 2011 at 6pm CEST in Seattle, WA." They have launched to read their open letter to you, and if you prefer, the letter is reproduced below:

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.

I have a 9-button programmable Razer Lachesis mouse. I've had it for about 4-5 years.

Every once in a while, after I boot my gaming rig... for some reason the mouse isn't "detected" and I have to go to the back to the machine and pull it... then plug it back in. This has gone on with 2 different motherboards and OSes (Xp and 7), and several driver updates. It's definitely the Mouse.

As for it's performance and functionality (when it works)... it's "Meh.. OK"

That said... I'll probably never buy another Razer product again. My next programmable mouse will probably be a Logitech... like my G-11 Keyboard.


You're complaining about a mouse that's 5 years old? Man that's considered ancient in tech years-in fact you're lucky the thing works at all still.

I've been using Razer mice for years and I've never regretted paying the slight premium for quality.

Not if you don't buy junk. I use a relatively new Logitech G500 on my desktop, but I am also using an original 4 button optical Microsoft Intellimouse on my laptop. Its from... I think 2002 or 2003; either way it is ancient. Still works just fine. It replaced my launch model MX510 which still worked but you had to keep the cord bent to the left which was likely a result of being rolled up that way for years and packed in my laptop bag.

No reason you have to trash mice or keyboards constantly.
