Does Razer Know It Posted a Racist Meme?

There’s being into video gaming and there’s identifying as a hardcore gamer. Both are fine! But the latter group has developed a well-earned reputation for being rife with bigoted jerks, from the whole mess over Gamergate to more recent instances like PewDiePie’s repeated instances of racism. It’s also not a coincidence that hardware manufacturers have long learned to appeal to hardcore gamers with branding exercises that could be described as Mountain Dew with an extra spoonful of cringe.

CES 2018: Razer and Phillips Team Up to Enhance Your Gaming Session With Rave Lighting

I have simple, if expensive, needs. I want to achieve, in 2018, the kind of immersive glow that the Philips Ambilight, a product last updated in 2007, provided the TV obsessive a decade ago. I can drop £115 on the Dreamscreen backlight, but I’d much rather use the eight Philips Hue lights already in my basement. If TV and set-top box makers embrace Philips’s new Entertainment API, my needs might finally be met. Read More >>

CES 2018: Razer’s New Battery-Free Wireless Gaming Mouse Is Disarmingly Light

It doesn’t look special. At a glance, it’s just a Razer gaming mouse sitting on a Razer gaming pad—which means everything is black except for some bright, colourful lights. But then you pick the mouse up and it’s way too light to be wireless. After ten seconds the cursor on screen flickers and the lights on the mouse turn off. It’s disconnected, because this mouse, the Razer Mamba Hyperflux, powers itself entirely from the mousepad. There’s no battery in the thing at all. Read More >>

CES 2018: Razer Put a Phone in a Laptop and I Don’t Hate It

I chuckled when I was first briefed about Razer’s latest concept, Project Linda. It’s a phone dock that turns the Razer Phone into a laptop! That concept has been done before, and it has always been deeply and profoundly stupid. But Razer’s take on the dumb idea has just enough polish, even in this concept stage, to actually feel kind of cool. Read More >>

Razer’s Powerhouse Phone for Gamers Is Delightfully Different

While its original mission was to make high-end gaming mice, Razer’s line of products has grown over the years to include everything from keyboards and fitness bands to entire desktops, laptops, and pretty much anything else the company could put RGB lighting in. However, up until now, there was one glaring hole in Razer’s otherwise comprehensive lineup: phones. After all, more people spend time playing Candy Crush and Clash of Clans than even the most popular AAA PC titles. The problem is that when a £180 Moto G5 can play Super Mario Run just as well as a £1000 iPhone X, WTF is a gaming phone even supposed to be? Read More >>

Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Adds Spill Protection

I'm a simple man. I like simple things, like keyboards that go 'clack' and don't have any bells and whistles. The latest Razer Blackwidow Ultimate mechanical keyboard does one of those things and includes a new feature that I never realised I wanted: spill protection. Read More >>

This Is the Best Gaming Controller You Can Buy

I resisted the urge to fling the controller across the room as I tried, once again, to beat the first damn level of Cuphead. I’d been making my attempts using what is currently one of the best PC game controllers to date, the Microsoft Xbox One Elite. But it wasn’t happening. Then I switched over to Razer’s ridiculously-named Wolverine Ultimate. The buttons on the Razer controller seemed to have the same response time, but they also had a nice snap to them and were so much more pleasant to press. I finally beat the level. Read More >>

The Razer Phone is Here, But is it For Real?

As the folks at Razer would tell it, the plan was always to make a phone. No one at Razer was quite sure what that phone would look like, or precisely how it would be a “gamer” phone—Razer’s peripherals and laptops are built primarily for gamers—but the phone was a distant dream. Now it’s a distinct reality, and at £699, the new gaming-focused Razer Phone could even be a solid alternative for people tired of slick glass backed OLED phones like the iPhone X and Galaxy S8.

Razer Is Making a Mobile Gaming Device, For Real This Time

Is it a phone? Or maybe a tablet with removable gamepads kind of like a Nintendo Switch? No one really knows, but Razer has been rumoured to be working on a mobile gaming gaming device for quite some time now, and according to a new interview between CNBC and Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, it seems like that might actually happen.

Razer’s Giant Laptop Gets a Much Cheaper Version

Affordability and Razer are not, typically, words that go together. The PC peripheral company has developed a reputation in the last few years for making sharp looking laptops that are ultra thin and ultra pricey for the guts inside of them. But the new 1080p Razer Blade Pro, at £1,800, is positively reasonable. No one else is making a giant laptop that is this thin and powerful at that price. Read More >>

Someone Stole Sweet Prototypes From Razer’s CES Booth

Razer had some of the coolest tech of CES in 2017. First there was the enormous 17-inch 12K laptop with three screens and enough LEDs to light a small runway. Then there was the sleek alien-looking projector that expanded a game’s image well beyond the edges of the TV screen. We were impressed with these prototypes. So were some thieves, who stole at least two prototype samples from Razer’s booth during the show. Read More >>
