Razer goes with the motion sensing flow, announces the Hydra controller

Well-known gaming gear Razer has today revealed the Hydra, a motion sensing controller made in collaboration with Sixense which is supposed to 'bring a whole new dimension of gameplay and immersion to the PC'.

Razer's Hydra utilizes magnetic motion tracking technology and has a non-slip satin grip surface, an analog stick and four Hyperesponse buttons, a rapid-fire trigger, and an anti-tangle braided cable. This controller comes bundled with a base station which is equipped with a precise sensor enabling 1mm and 1 degree tracks (no need for a direct line of sight to operate).

To give Hydra a big push, Razer has teamed up with Valve and will offer a special package containing two controllers, a base station and a copy of the recently-released Portal 2 first-person.... puzzle game. Better still, Hydra is said to be optimized with over 125 popular PC games out of the box so you'll certainly be able to enjoy it as soon as it arrives. And it will arrive in June, priced at $140 / €140 for the Portal 2 bundle. Pre-orders will kick off in May.
