“œThat Facebook post generated more buzz than we could’ve ever imagined, which proves that there have been a number of gamers that have had their needs ignored for some time,” said Tan. “œWe pride ourselves on being gamers ourselves, and we all know that there is no substitute for gaming with your dominant hand.”
Razer said that the community is a huge part of the company, that’s why they have a dedicated team of community specialists that monitor their Facebook Page and Twitter accounts, and share the feedbacks on what could be their next product.
