With the Oculus Rift being shipped, Razer also ran a campaign for Razer hydra at 50€ discount for those who bought the dev kit. Now my issue does involve Razer, but Valve isn't without reponsability.
As mentioned here: http://www.razerzone.com/minisite/hydra/integrated
- Left 4 dead 2 has full integration, and so does Portal 2.
For Portal 2 you have to get the "secretly hidden DLC" by contacting sixence for a key, steam could have done that a tad better.
Now my main issue is that both Razer and Valve is providing fake marketing by announcting l4d2 fully integrated, when it clearly isn't. Sixence says they got everything ready, but it is Valve who has to release the integration.
Razer is providing incorrect information
And Valve lack their responsibility by not releasing the integration or forcing Razer to remove the misinformation. - In fact, I have yet to see a statement from Valve which could clearify whether this integration is comming or not; That is the least they could have done.
When i bought the Hydra, I expected to chop heads off by having an ADHD dance in my room in a game enviroment made by some who worked on their hardware for a long long time. Now i need to make my game-development based on experience with other small costom integrations and various FPS games to create a likewise experience as L4D2 can provide.
So dear Valve, please make a statement about your intentions with the Hydra support.
ps: please don't delete this post.
