Razor Forge TV owners lately have had plenty of new games to try out, thanks to the Ouya Marketplace and most of the games from there being available on the Cortex storefront. One game, called Read Only Memories, is now available on the Cortex store for Forge TV owners for free.

Razer has announced that their Cortex store is in its new and improved form as of today. The Cortex store features all of the Android games that Razer took on from their purchase of the now defunct Ouya marketplace as well. Not all of the games made it from the Ouya marketplace, but most of them did.
With news coming out yesterday that the Forge TV is no longer for sale on Google’s Store, everyone has been speaking the inevitable doom of the company’s set-top box. We mentioned it didn’t make sense that after Razer’s purchase of Ouya that they would just simply let their Android TV initiative die and that perhaps they were getting ready for a new release for the Forge TV or another similar device. As it turns out, that could be exactly what they are doing.
Razer’s set-top box that has a focus on multi-media entertainment, and especially with gaming, has had its status changed to no longer available for purchase on the Google Store. This means Google probably has no plans to restock this set-top box. That doesn’t mean it is dead in the water though, although it isn’t that great of a sign of things either.
If appears that Razer is looking to bolster the sales of their Android set-top box / micro-console called the Forge TV as it has now appeared on Google’s Store for devices. We got to go hands-on with this set-top box back during GDC this year and with the short amount of time we had with it, it was a decent little box to play with.
Back during CES 2015 we got to check our Razer’s upcoming set top box called ForgeTV as well as the peripherals that it will be supporting. Since then Razer has been working to get this new set top box into consumer’s hands as soon as possible and it looks like that will be happening soon as pre-orders have appeared on Amazon for a Razer ForgeTV bundle.
Today Razer announced their solution to bringing PC and Android games to the big screen with their Forge TV set top box. The company is describing this as a game and entertainment console since it isn’t just made for straight gameplay but also to use services like Netflix, YouTube, and other more entertainment based applications. Along with the unveiling of Forge TV, Razer also unveiled their new Bluetooth controller called Serval and the Turret Lapboard and mouse combo.
Razer announced the Forge TV today at CES 2015. The Forge TV is an Android-based gaming and entertainment console which is set to release soon, Q1 of 2015. On top of that, Razer announced a selection of peripherals to compliment their new set top box.
