Corsair, once known primarily for its memory products, will look to be a major player in the PC gaming peripheral market with the acquisition of "certain assets" of Raptor Gaming. If you've never heard of Raptor Gaming before, it's because they're primarily focused on the European market, and in particular Germany.

As part of the deal, Corsair takes hold of Raptor Gaming's full line of keyboards, mice, headsets, and accessories, With these products in tow, Corsair intends to launch a new gaming line to go along with its existing Vengeance products (rather than supplant it), though it sounds like the company will focus its efforts in Germany.

Raptor Gaming M3x

"Corsair and Raptor share the same goal, bringing best-in-class PC hardware to gamers around the world," said Andy Paul, President and CEO of Corsair. "Raptor Gaming's strong retail presence will allow us to offer a wider range of PC hardware to gamers across Germany."

Raptor Gaming CEO Dirk Schunk and COO Heinz-Dieter Ludwig will remain on board to help facilitate a smooth transaction, Corsair said.

As long as their reputation of quality follows them, I 100% welcome them to selling peripherals.

"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."

They're replacing the Vengeance mice with these? Why? The vengeance line looks so much more amazing. Is there any difference in the hardware or reaction speed?

Great company. Corsair is one of the top if not the top company when it comes to gaming peripherals but I would like to see more customization. One of my favorite comapnies when it comes to computers. Ill get a corsair logo tattoo once i win the corsair giveaway.
