An old saying says that few people go as unloved as left-handed stepchildren. Things don't get better for those poor, uncared-for souls as time goes on, either; when they grow up and try to get their World of Warcraft on, left-handed stepchildren quickly find themselves just as shunned by most gaming peripheral makers. We're not sure which hand Razer boss Min-Liang Tan writes with, but he's definitely thinking of the chil… um, left-handed gamers out there with his offer to create a southpaw Naga MMO mouse if the concept gets enough Facebook love.
We've always taken care of the southpaw gamers of the world with our ambi mice and the LH DA - in fact, for every left-handed DeathAdder we make, we're losing money with each sale - and this in turn means we have less dollars for research and development of other products. But we do it because we believe that For Gamers. By Gamers - means for Left Hand Gamers too.
And we DO want to make a left handed Naga - but we can't just make it for 100 people - even for 10,000 gamers, it's a huge loss maker for Razer.
But I do hear all of you out there that have been asking for a LH Naga - and I'll throw the challenge back to you - if there are 10,000 Likes in a month from now on this post, we WILL make a LH Razer Naga. You'll need to be patient though - because it will take at least a year from when we start. But you will have my word that we will make one.
Gamers have until April 21st to garner the post with virtual accolades; seeing as how it already has nearly 9,000 Likes, the milestone will probably fall soon. Are there any southpaw Knights of the Old Republic fans out there looking forward to a left-handed Naga?
