Razer announces its Hydra motion sensing PC controller

It's been over a year since Razer and Sixense partnered up to develop a "revolutionary true-to-life, next-generation motion sensing and gesture recognition controller for PC gaming." Today we finally get to meet that controller: the Razer Hydra. As you'd expect the new peripheral will enable Wii-like gameplay across a number of PC titles, but rather than targeting a casual-gaming audience Razer is promising to take accuracy to the next level for serious gamers.

Looks interesting, as long as games that have support for it allow for analog movement rather than just walk/sprint. Lots of analog stick tapping in the Black Ops demo video.

More overpriced gimmicky cr@p......I bought a lachesis mouse a while back and it never worked correctly as it kept jerking around, such POS and support was so unprofessional. I replaced it with a 10 dollar logitech optical mouse and it worked right out of the box and better. Never again will i buy anything from this company.

I must not be that far into the game... cause I have no idea how he's manipulating the boxes like that. But he doesn't have the potato on his gun... odd...

You must have had a bad experience but i can see i bought a Deathadder 2 years back nearly now and it's probably one of the best gaming purchases i've ever made and still going strong now, never had a problem.

I watched the Black Ops video with the Hydra yesterday and to me it's just no substitution for a mouse, hardly looked accurate at all and in the heat of a quick-paced online battle it'd be a nightmare i reckon, for me personally anyway, each to their own though obviously.

First I thought atleast someone cares for the PC by launching some motion sensing tech,but on reading the full article I realised that if it isn't wireless,then its simply pointless.. never the less good initiative on razer's part.
