For the longest time, gamers have been asked to buy a second mouse pad for use when hanging out at LAN parties. Typically, you'd have one "doesn't matter" mouse pad for use at home, then a more expensive mouse for gaming that reacts more accurately to subtle movements.Razer, who has been known to create gaming-centric pads in the past, has just revealed its solution to the two pad problem. The Vespula is the company's first true two-sided mouse pad, with one providing a "speed" surface and one a "control" surface. This is actually designed to be used by gamers who dabble in varying genres; one side for first-person shooters, one side of MMOs, for example.It's constructed with a matte, non-slip... Read more...
Razer has generally been known best for its hot gaming mice, and more recently, keyboards. But clearly the company has expansion in mind, and with the high-end peripheral market booming (Rock Band instruments, anyone?), there has never been a better time to dabble in the world of motion sensing. At CES 2010, Razer teamed with Sixense and Valve in order to showcase a new technology that's much like the Nintendo Wii Remote, but for the PC. Interested? You should be. Detailed as a "true-to-life, next-generation motion sensing and gesture recognition controller for PC gaming," the controller system was shown with Left 4 Dead 2, and the results were said to be impressive. It's one of the first devices... Read more...
Razer has been on a roll here lately with new mice, and that trend is continuing today with the Imperator.

The device also features the company's first adjustable side buttons to ensure customized positioning for a variety of hand sizes and gaming grips, not to mention a 3.5G laser sensor. It's available to order now directly from Razer for $79.99.RAZER IMPERATOR™ OFFERS COMFORT, CUSTOMIZATION FOR ALL “RIGHTIES”   Carlsbad, Calif. – November 24, 2009 - Razer™, the world’s leading manufacturer of high-end precision...

Razer, one of the leading manufacturers of gaming mice, was giving out malware with their drivers, according to a post on security firm Trend Micro's website. According to Trend Micro, a large number of the device drivers which were earlier downloadable at the Razer support site were infected with a Trojan. The infected drivers run the proper installer, but then dropped a copy of WORM.ASPXOR.AB in the System directory. According to Trend Micro, the malware had very low detectability, with only 7 out of 41 vendors offering "generic detection." In a way, it's hard to believe detectability was so low. ThreatExpert received a submission on the trojan on August 20th, 2009, over a month ago. Trend... Read more...
Razer has been branching out on their products for quite some time, with the company's audio range being its go-to line when the mice and keyboard grows tired. With the PAX 2009 conference in full swing out on the west coast of America, Razer is joining forces in order to issue a limited edition PAX series of its Moray+ mobile gaming communicator. Tailored specifically for gamers, the device is an in-ear noise isolating earphone equipped with an omnidirectional inline microphone. There doesn't seem to be much difference between the original Moray+ and this one, but we suspect the hardcore gaming crowd will have an easier time buying in to something with a PAX logo on there.
