    I just got some new Krakens and found that I needed the new Synapse 3 software to take advantage of the 7.1 surround. I thought that this is no big deal because I have a few other products (mouse, keyboard, and gamepad) that are configured through razer Synapse 2. I was wrong. Turns all my existing products have been labeled Legacy devices and I cannot control them through Synapse 3. So now I am running two versions of Synapse for everything to work. Why couldn't they just add support and programing capabilities into the latest version of Synapse 3? Now I feel like my stuff is dated.

    Kind of like, "who still runs Windows 95?" "old applications incompatible to run on newer OS"
    Old things cannot be implemented into the new world. But some can see the opportunity depending on its popularity and demand from consumers.

    Starcraft 1 was launched on year 1997 (I think), but due to the popularity of Esport, Blizzard have improved the platforms by creating remastered version and still kicking ass on latest Windows.

    So if legacy devices are still kicking ass, asking RAZER software dev team to implement the hardware support onto Synapse 3

    "Old things cannot be implemented into the new world", yet I can still use USB 2.0 thumbs drives, plug PS/2 devices into current motherboards, plug in a floppy drive or even run old software in newer versions of OS. So old things can most definitely be implemented into the new world.

    I for one don't want to run more software than needed, most companies have added support for current and previous hardware, why would this be any different? It's not like the OG poster's hardware is outdated. Possibly lazy on Razer software devs or a marketing ploy to make users feel like they have obsolete hardware? Just my two cents.
