Razer has impressed at past CES events with innovative ideas such as Project Fiona (which became the Razer Edge), and the company is looking to conjure up that magic again with Project Christine, a unique, modular approach to constructing a gaming PC. Basically, the machine starts out with a spine of sorts onto which a number of modules can be attached. There are modules for CPUs, GPUs, storage, RAM, and everything else; all of the components sync via PCIe interfaces, so ostensibly all you need to do to upgrade a component is to pop in a new module. Want to upgrade from a single GPU to a tri-SLI... Read more...
No, it’s not challenging devices like the Razer Edge, NVIDIA Project SHIELD, or even the intriguing Wikipad, but MOGA is angling for the mobile gaming hardware market with its mobile game controllers. The company announced the second generation of its controllers with the MOGA Power series, which succeed the MOGA Pocket and MOGA Pro controllers. The latest pair feature dual analog joysticks, D-pad, four control buttons, right and left bumpers, and more, and the controller will actually charge the connected mobile device while users are playing, which delivers much longer gametime. The Pivot... Read more...
The Razer Edge and NVIDIA’s Project SHIELD aren’t the only handheld gaming tablets in the game; the Wikipad is making a push, and the $249 tablet will officially launch on June 11th. The Wikipad adopts the same design concept as the Razer Edge, which is a tablet that snaps into a handheld controller that converts the whole thing into a portable console. The Wikipad is a 7-inch device (smaller than the 10-inch Razer Edge) and runs a quad core NVIDIA Tegra 3 SoC with 16GB of onboard storage (with a 32GB micro SD slot) and micro USB, HDMI out, a 2MP front camera, GPS, an accelerometer,...

Razer says that it will introduce a new product for “serious gamers” at an event in San Francisco on Thursday, May 30th, and the subject of the announcement is shrouded in mystery. Razer’s teaser line for the event is, “What’s Thinner Than a Dime?”; an accompanying teaser trailer for the event is just as obtuse, so much so that you’ll probably be annoyed with yourself for even watching it. But go ahead anyway. See? There’s not much there, although the rolling dime does bump into something dark roughly ten seconds into the video, which is probably... Read more...
It’s perhaps an obvious partnership though nonetheless pleasing to see: Valve’s Steam software will ship on board Razer Edge gaming tablets.

"Razer has one mission in mind: to innovate for PC gamers worldwide," said Razer co-founder, CEO, and creative director Min-Liang Tan in a statement. "Providing users with access to Steam will enable Razer Edge users to play their favorite games with greater ease than ever before." Steam... Read more...

The portable gaming market has been evolving briskly lately, as just a few weeks ago at CES 2013, we got our first hands-on look at both the Razer Edge gaming tablet and NVIDIA’s Project SHIELD mobile gaming device. Now there’s another kid on the block called the Wikipad. The 7-inch tablet is similar to the aforementioned gaming devices in that it’s designed first and foremost for gaming and also has a controller attachment to give a more console-like experience. The Wikipad runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and has a quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor (with 12-core GPU), 1280x800... Read more...
Plenty of folks thought that Razer was blowing smoke when it announced that it was developing a high end gaming tablet, dubbed Project Fiona, at last year’s CES. A year later, lo and behold, the company has a whole booth full of them at CES 2013. And the device is gorgeous. After garnering loads of input from actual PC gamers, Razer put together what is, in the most basic sense, a 10.1-inch tablet, albeit one loaded with high-end hardware and also essentially a Windows 8 PC and a portable gaming console, all wrapped up in one device. There are two models slated for release in Q1, with the... Read more...
