Razer Interview and News

Published by under E3,video on Jun. 13. 2011.

Razer, maker of various gear for gamers, has presented at this year’s E3 a special set of peripherals they made in association with Bioware and LucasArts that are all themed in The Old Republic fashion. To celebrate this announcement Razer has been running a giveaway on their site for a few days now. The giveaway is called “Choose your allegiance” and lets people choose Republic or Empire and put in their details to be eligible to win some of Razer’s products. The faction that has more members will also have an additional cache of prizes handed out to lucky winners. Today is the last day to enter this giveaway so feel free to hop over to Razer’s site and try your luck.

SWTOR Life also has a special treat for all of you wanting to find out more about the Razer gear that will come out simultaneously with The Old Republic. We were at Razer’s booth during E3 and we managed to shoot some in detail video of the peripherals as well as talk to mr. Hilmar Hahn and Melonie McElhannon about the products. We got to hear about some cool features and the way they are working together with Bioware and LucasArts to present in-game information on the keyboard. I am rather tantalized by that multitouch pad they have there. Seems like part of the game could be moved there.

    I dislike the lack of a 10-key on the right-side of the keyboard – and the special keys over on the right – am I expected to take my hand off my mouse to click them? If I rest my hand on the LCD screen, won’t I accidentally move my character, since it is a trackpad as well? It just seems like poor design. I think I’d rather buy a G-19. Not sure about the mouse or the headset though. I want to know more about what sort of special feedback the headset gets.

    hope to see those features available on the left.
    running around with WASD & mouse, don’t want to take my hand off the mouse as well.
    i prefer a movement & hotkey keyboard.

    button 6 7 8 9 10
    button 1 2 3 4 5
    over the WASD and the LCD display on the left side, where i can shortcut my STRG skillbar (which i can’t handly that well….) -> G15 & G19 isn’t the best for that atm, using macros there.

    I also and concerned about the 10 key pad thing.

    I am however excited about the character config buttons, I hope the software integration allows for many options there. I actually hope there is some sort of crafting interaction with that somehow but I am dreaming again.
