Razer Hydra

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I'm surprised that no one posted about this already. Basically there is this new "Mouse" by razer called the hydra that I think will bring a lot more people to the PC but at the same time ruin PC gaming.


To me it basically looks like a wii remote for the PC.

What do you think the Razer Hydra will do to pc gaming?

I saw this in action @ CES and its impressive. I wouldn't mind using it for portal 2. But I cannot image it for many other games.

It's $140 for a gimmick, yeah no thanks. I don't think this will affect the PC Gaming market at all, it's more a case of Razer trying to fix what isn't broken (the mouse).

I don't think it'd ruin pc gaming. Lets try and see competitive play with those things, just for the epic lulz.

I love my mouse, it's a design setup that makes sense and will only be bested by instant input by my brain.

Ever tried to play an FPS on the Wii? It's ******* terrible. The main problem arises from the turning. It ends up feeling like a joystick in the sense that there is a deadzone (the middle of the screen space) and then there is essentially a lot of acceleration based on how far off to the edge of the screen you aim. Then if you aim too far, everything stops. It's just disorienting and annoying, plus it's tiring on your arms. Aiming without some sort of stabilization (like a shoulder butt on a rifle) is also unstable and jittery and a pain in the ass.

I wouldn't use it even for a non-competitive game like Portal. Although that map looked hella sweet with all of the gravity gun manipulations and the deformable blocks. Why wasn't that in my Portal 2, exactly?

it looks interesting but im sure it wont effect pc gaming whatsoever.

If people want this kinda thing, they will get a consol (they all have similiar things right now)

Just more proof of Razer being just another ****ty company that's only in it for the money. This is the last thing a real pc gamer would want. Gimmicks ahoy!
