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 pcgamingisnotdead.com 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.

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.

It's practically in brand new condition. I only use that rig for gaming and there hasn't been too many games purchased over the last few years. Also it was doing this crap since day 1... but I figured it was a driver issue and would get corrected. I was wrong. Since it doesn't happen that often... I kept the mouse past the ability to RMA it. Also, there are tons of other people in their tech forums that had this problem with the Lachesis... which again, is why I figured it was a driver issue that would get corrected - not a defective model, which it is.

My Logitech G-11 is actually older and works perfectly. It too, is in practically new condition.

Bottom line... the next gaming input device for me will be a Logitech.
