Welcome to the Game Replay, the thrice-weekly look back at the wider world of gaming by the staff of MacNN. In today's edition, Sony advises the Mac and PC versions of Remote Play will arrive with the next major PlayStation 4 firmware, the HTC Vive shifts over 15,000 units within ten minutes of availability, and Razer reveals five games that will work with its OSVR headset.
Gaming peripheral manufacturer Razer's latest attempt at the wearables market is a watch, though the company claims it to be a "watch with smart functions" instead of a typical smartwatch. Following after the Nabu fitness tracker, the Razer Nabu Watch borrows many of the traits of its predecessor, combining it with a digital watch that includes a second screen, one that can display notifications from a smartphone connected over Bluetooth.
Razer has produced a webcam that will be extremely handy to gamers producing YouTube videos or streaming live on Twitch. The Stargazer is a desktop webcam that uses an Intel RealSense SR300 camera that includes depth sensing functionality, allowing for broadcasters to remove the background on the webcam video feed without resorting to using a chroma key effect, potentially replacing it with game footage or another more suitable backdrop.
Microsoft Translator has been upgraded on both iOS and Android, allowing them both to translate spoken conversations. The update, which also works on the Apple Watch, can be used to quickly translate between multiple users in the same conversation, with the use of either one device shared between everyone supported alongside using a smartphone and smartwatch at the same time, with each party speaking into one and reading their language's translation on the screen.
Those dipping their toes in the PC gaming arena have undoubtedly heard of Razer, a brand nearly synonymous with gaming. The company rose to such levels on the back of peripherals, specifically its growing line of mice. In June, Razer updated its 2012 Mamba mouse model with two new versions sporting a new laser sensor capable of tracking dots-per-inch (DPI) levels up to 16,000. Does the wired version -- dubbed the Mamba Tournament Edition (TE) -- offer a significant enough change to entice consumers to scoop it up, or will the insanely high DPI levels push people away?
Welcome to the Game Replay, the thrice-weekly look at the wider world of gaming by the staff of MacNN. In today's edition, Ouya strikes an acquisition deal with Razer, GameStop offers the PlayStation 4 with a 2TB capacity, and Dragon Quest 11 becomes the first game confirmed to ship on Nintendo's future NX game console.
Peripherals manufacturer Razer has revealed an update to its Mamba gaming mouse. The latest incarnation of the mouse is claimed to possess the "world's most precise gaming mouse sensor," with the 5G laser sensor capable of tracking at up to 16,000 dpi, can have its tracking set at 1dpi increments instead of the usual 50dpi jumps, and is capable of tracking the distance it is lifted off a mousing surface as precisely as 0.1mm, allowing for a more precise lift-off cut-off.
Welcome to the Game Replay, the twice-weekly look at the wider world of gaming by the staff of MacNN and Electronista. In today's edition, Halo 5 and Destiny expansion details are revealed, Ouya is allegedly in discussions to be acquired by Razer, and Hearthstone gains a new competitive 'Tavern Brawl' mode.
Razer's virtual reality headset will include the ability to track the motion of the wearer's hands. The OSVR Hacker Dev Kit from Razer will include an optional faceplate with Leap Motion hardware embedded inside it, allowing for developers to create apps that take into account the wearer's hands, and potentially allowing for a more intuitive and realistic virtual reality experience for users.
Gaming peripherals manufacturer Razer has revamped its high-specification Blade notebooks, giving it a number of major improvements. While the Windows 8.1 notebooks boasts a lot of upgraded internals, the biggest addition is the choice of either a 14-inch Full HD 16:9 LED display or a 14-inch QHD+ IGZO version with multi-touch and a resolution of 3,200x1,800.
