Did either of these ever make it to market?

Will this?

Nice bit of link-bait Razor, I'm sure this vapour ware will help you whore yourself out and sell a few more mice.

The Switchblade, no, but the Blade is due to launch later this month.

Totally. It's too much of a niche product to justify the price tag. Not really good enough for home gaming, where you can slough in front of a big screen with surround sound instead, and too big for casual mobile gaming. Unless the controllers are detachable, so you essentially have a multipurpose tablet with an added gaming perk, it is not going to sell.

I don't see the point. It's trying to hamfist 'big'-screen games into a mobile form-factor at the expense of fidelity, control and probably configurability too.

Razer harp on about 'PC gaming is not dead', yet they try to turn it into some kind of overpriced console-ified iPad wannabe. Do they actually know what PC gaming is, what it's about, or what separates it from console gaming, aside from the elitism?

I don't think they have a clue; And this kind of crap only contributes to the perception of the PC as a struggling platform, but then again; Razer's mantra is just telling us what we already know, so that's no surprise from them.

Although it's not something I would buy, I'm actually impressed by this. At least they are innovating. And they only need one crazy idea like this to stick. I remember the first time I saw an Asus Eee....

I'm not sure i understand a lot of the negativity that people feel towards Razor and their product design. They spend money taking a popular product and try to enhance to sell to niche market, what people fail to understand is that they won't be producing 100,000s nor will they sell them but its building a brand for a cross platform gaming peripherals which we currently don't have. The idea of Razor producing products just for PC gaming is outdated and not concurrent with the Razor brand business model.

I can't comment on faults with their products or the quality I've only ever owned one product and it was fine whilst it worked however if you want specialised PC gaming only perihperals I would recommend other brands.

This is a non-starter, just like most tablets at ridiculous prices, only worse.
I will give them credit for an interesting idea, but it probably should have stayed there.


How do you break a Black Widow in a week?
It's a pretty solid bit of kit in my experience.
