Razer: PC Gaming is not dead

Taking out a full page ad in the Wall Street Journal, hardware manufacturer Razer is less-than-subtle as it makes the claim that “PC GAMING IS NOT DEAD”.

Releasing an open letter to “Microsoft’s Xbox, Sony’s Playstation and Nintendo’s Wii consoles”, Razer promises a “major announcement”, timed to coincide with PAX Prime, held on August 26th, 2011.


Something is happening, August 26th

The letter reads as follows:

We have all heard the rhetoric about the demise of PC Gaming—the stories that console gaming will take over all gaming and that PC gamers will be left with shoddy ports of console titles.

The rumors of our untimely demise have been greatly exaggerated. We are more than 300 million PC gamers worldwide and this legion is growing every day. Today there are more PC gamers than all console gamers combined and we have been silent in the face of the closed gaming systems that have been propagated.

We, the PC Gamers, have been here since the beginning and have seen the industry grow to surpass movies and music, and we look forward to an open world where console and PC gamers will stand side by side as gamers in arms.

We are here today to tell you, that on the 26th of August, we will seek to end the silence and bring a new age of openness and innovation to all gaming. Together we shall remind you – that PC Gaming is NOT dead.

For a little more information, a neon-green colour scheme and an automated voice reading a plea in an endless loop, head to PCGamingIsNotDead.com, and sign up for the mailing list – you’re promised a glimpse of “the future of PC gaming”.

There’s even a handy countdown, a reminder that we have just over three days before Razer‘s Big Announcement. Stay tuned.
