Flat out. No question.  read feature

Niiiiice. That's what you'd expect to say trying out a premium set of audiophile-quality headphones, especially when they're priced at $299.00. Razer's Kraken Forged Edition music and gaming headphones are certainly nice in both form and function.  But are they $299 nice? Do they have a look and sound so good that you'd be okay eating ramen for the next month? read feature

I've been playing PC games with Razer's Ouroboros wired/wireless ambidextrous gaming mouse for a bit now, trying out everything from MMOs to FPS to casual games. This is one really nice mouse, but it had better be for its asking price of $149.99.  read feature

Xbox One to ship without headsets


But there's always Kinect!
Jun 25
It's been nearly a week since Microsoft announced its decision to scrap their DRM policy -- a decision met with some mixed, albeit mostly-positive reactions. In light of this, many gamers are now prepared to give the Xbox One a second chance, while others may find the $499 price tag a bit too steep. For that price, you'd feel it safe to assume Microsoft would toss in a headset. You'd be wrong. read
