Consider this product more of a hybrid or bridge between the 2. This obviously won't target a "traditional PC gamer" since we tend to be, as a rule, more modder/hacker/upgrader than casual user. That doesn't mean that a product like this will not appeal to a portion of that crowd - I travel constantly, and my only avenue for decent gaming on the road right now is a handheld or gaming laptop, so something like this might be interesting to me. And, as the Guest before me pointed out, there is a potential for a huge casual or crossover market that lies somewhere down the ladder from the elite hardcore gamer population. This product could really do wonders in that nice fat marketplace, but my fear is that it won't get off the ground due to Razer's tendency to vastly overprice their hardware (look at the Blade for an example of this).Ranger12 said:
Like I said a week ago, for me, half the fun is building and maintaining my own rig. Overclocking and optimizing it to get every frame per second I can. A tablet for gaming doesn't excite me at all. It's almost a glorified 3ds or PSP. It would be better targeted towards the console generation than the traditional pc gamer.
Why would you buy something with a "hardcore" price to not be "hardcore"?ikesmasher said:
If it has removable controls (can be used as a normal tablet with detachable gaming pad) im impressed.
And yes, this is NOT obviously for hardcore PC gamers, and anyone who thinks this needs a good smack to reality.
