Well E3 2015 has barely started and already there have been some very good announcements for mobile gamers already, with Torchlight Mobile being announced last week still being one of the top 3 game announcements for mobile, and the week is barely underway! So everything is looking very promising for us mobile gamers. However, there have been some surprising announcements already as well, and one of those is that it appears that Razer has officially purchased Ouya.
Recently we reported on the Android micro-console maker Ouya, who has had a fair amount of difficulty as of late, who were looking for a potential buyer to acquire the company. It appears that there is one company who is interested in this proposal and it happens to be Razer.
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.
There is certainly plenty of options when it comes to Virtual Reality headsets these days and we aren’t even a full three months into this year. One of the newer ones on the scene that has been receiving a lot of interest lately is the OSVR Headset. OSVR stands for Open Source Virtual Reality and, as the name implies, is completely open source from the hardware to the software and everything in between.
Razer’s entry into the wearable technology sector, outside of the newly announce VR headset of theirs, is a wristband called the Nabu X which was originally announced back in June of 2014. For those of you who missed the first round of pre-orders for US/Canada, tomorrow the 2nd round will start as well as the first round for European residents interested in snagging one of these.
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.
Razer, the gaming company that makes specialized hardware, like gaming specific laptops or related accessories like backlit keyboards and ambidextrous mice, is venturing into the realm of Android TV by announcing their plans to to release what they call a “micro-console”.
Today marks the first official day the door are open for E3 2014 and while yesterday was the official press conference day, today begins where a lot of the news actually comes out of the event. Well-known gaming peripheral maker Razer announced back in the beginning of this year that they were working on some wearable technology of their own called the Nabu. Today the company has announced their plans for beta testing this technology.
