I was wondering the other day why Razer hasn't got a hand in both racing wheels and fight sticks.

id be well up for it. but razer seem to be over priced compared to what some other companies can do.

Since I started using Razor Mouses & mousepads I haven't changed. It's simply perfect for everything, be it RTS, FPS or MMO's. The design is just freaking awesome!

Step one. sell mice and Keyboards.
Step two. sell high end headphones and audio
Step Three. Sell high end Gamer specific KB/M and Audio
Step four. branch off unto all gaming accessories including consoles and driving wheels.

pretty much a No Brainer.

I mentioned both, and he seems interested. I honestly think they will come up with something really quickly.

I'd be happy if they were considering entering the PS3 controller market.

That sexy 360 controller is just teasing the hell out of me. Why no PS3 love, Razer?

I would think Sony would need to write a driver set to support usb gamepads for that to happen. I don't think Razer has much to do with that.
They don't do wireless, so blutooth is out.

My Razer Orochi begs to differ...

How does the PS3 not support USB controllers? Either way, I'd expect Razer's PS3 controller to be Bluetooth.

Sony's PS3 does support USB third party controller my friend of mind has a USB controller. Due to the fact he's a cheap skate did'nt want to pay 40 pounds for a controller. Plus you can hook up the razer onza on PS3 by using the XCM Crossfire adapter that converts any PC/Xbox 360 peripheral controller which can be used on the PS3. I found a razer onza being used on the PS3 a couple of weeks ago i'll send you guys a link

The Razer Orochi is a mouse. They do not use even remotely similar drivers for them.
Keyboard and mouse is supported by the ps3, and to some extent usb gamepads, but they do not have a full feature set. Not all gamepads are supported. Just the ones that run on generic drivers, which the Onza does not.
The xcm adapter is more of a work around than a solution. You loose precision that way.
Razer doesn't like wireless devices, as they induce lag. A quick peek around their product selection will show that. Although I do hear they are working on a few wireless pads.

I honestly think they're seriously considering it. It's too early for any kind of E3 announcement, but expect something very very soon.
