    The VR release, and the living room ecosystem is great (Forge, Servus, Turret), but...

    What about us hardcore PC gamers? Any bones for us? A desktop PC Razer? A Macbook Air competitor Razer? The much overdue Edge II? Upgraded Blade?

    VR is huge for a hardcore PC gamer. The TV thing could be too, if you're interested in playing your PC games in another room without moving your PC around.

    VR *will* be huge, but the Razer release amounts to a devkit package. We won't be seeing the results for years.

    I'm talking about AAA titles that we like playing, and where Razer has fallen behind a bit in regards to the competition (no 900 series Nvidia cards, for example).

    Well, to each their own. They can't please everyone, but I for one am happy about what's been announced.

    How will VR be huge I still don't understand what all the hype with VR headsets are.

    Oh, I'm quite happy!

    I just want something on the PC hardware side of the house, which has been a Razer strong point since the initial Blade release several years back.

    For example, Alienware and MSI have released external GPU's, which is a holy grail of mobile gaming. Razer?

    Other manufacturers have released mobile systems with much better specs, including GTX 980m cards. Razer?

    Lenovo and others have released 2 in 1 tablet/laptops with core i7 processors, with the logical next step being discrete graphics. Razer?

    VR is great, but I'm not sure if I see the demand for it (will it be the next "3D Flop"?). There is a market to be addressed NOW, and Razer is not addressing it at CES 2015. Maybe they will in coming months, but so far it is a bit disappointing.

    If you don't understand then I'm not quite sure I can help you. I mean, since gaming started it's been all about better graphics, and trying to better envelop yourself in the game itself. Make it feel like you're part of the game world. VR brings us as close to in the game world as we can get w/o a real life simulator room or something, so it's a very huge deal for a lot of people. Most people who've tried VR says it makes them feel like they're actually IN the game.

    Thank you for the response, and yes it seems I am just not that excited or intrigued enough by the VR headset to view it as something I would want, anyway I know one of my buddys will be picking one up so Ill just have to wait and see for myself.

    I feel like trying it for yourself will help you decide wether or not you want it. Not everyone has to like everything though :)

    Meh VR doesn't do anything for me tbh. The TV thing got me thinking though. Looks interesting.

    Like I said, not everything will excite everyone. I'm not even personally excited about the VR because it's not being made by Razer. But, to each their own.

    Well VR on it's own doesn't interest me. 3D didn't interest me and I don't think VR will. I did have the chance to try out oculus at Gamescom but I didn't care enough to stand in the long waiting line so I didn't.

    Well, I can't say for sure how great it'll be either cause I haven't tried it, but I recommend at least trying it out if you know someone who gets one. Maybe soon enough they'll be on display in game stores? :D

    Ye maybe. I got the first NVIDIA 3D glasses back in the day, they worked pretty well and were a nice touch. But either way, 3D is not for me. Same goes for my 3Ds, I always use it without the 3D on.

    What happened to the razerblade refresh, the new intel processors are out, but no blade?

    I'd like to know where Christine is at...

    Razer seems to take the approached of announcing more monumental products at CES (to generate buzz). A new mouse, keyboard or a laptop model refresh without drastic physical changes isn't going to generate the same kind of buzz a new product does liek OSVR, Forge, Christine, etc

    I really hope that the modular pc becomes a reality.... would be awesome!

    Maybe a new blade is coming but razer has not got and of the new chips because intel has just released them to the public at ces, I will be expecting one though. Maybe min will do the $2,500 blade for $999 for the insiders like he said in a previous post.
  20. Yeah~ was hoping to hear about Project Christine.
