Razer sends open letter to console makers

Announces new age of gaming innovation
You’ve all heard the story of consoles taking over PCs countless times, and some even tend to repeat it in our comments section in the hope it will come true. Of course – there’s little chance of that, unless there occurs some mass lobotomy that will make everyone forget just why the PC still can’t be touched in that respect.

Razer seems to be sure of it too, as the company published an open letter to console makers in the Wall Street Journal. In the letter, the company teases August 26 as the date when it will bring openness to innovation to all gaming. 

The letter reads:”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.”
