You will no longer have to browse for the best deals
One of the best things about being a PC gamer are the great video game sales we have access to. While Steam sales are the most well-known, sites such as GOG.com have their own great sales and even EA’s Origin has been getting the general idea. So to make browsing around easier, Razer has announced the Razer Cortex which will compare prices for video games among other functions.
Razer Cortex: Deals will compare prices from digital platforms in an interface that will highlight the best prices and allow users to create wish lists. Once a wish list has been created, the application will notify the user anytime the game drops in price or appears in the store’s deals. The application will also suggest other games users might enjoy based on what they are playing.
“Our goal is to make games as accessible as possible to the Razer gaming community,” says Razer co-Founder Min-Liang Tan. “By pointing gamers to the best options for their wallets without wasting valuable time digging through different stores, they can squeeze more gaming juice out of their budgets. With a solution like Deals, we’re doing our part in providing a much needed dose of transparency to the gaming industry, while enabling our players to focus on gaming.”
For now, the application will only compare deals across Amazon, Gamersgate, GameStop, GOG.com, Green Man Gaming, Steam, and Origin though Razer says that more will come.
Razer Cortex also comes with a few additional features that includes a save file backup function, screen capture gallery, and a game booster function that enhances the PC’s gaming performance.
Starting August 25, Razer will hold an early access event, for two weeks, where users will be able to sign up with their Razer ID. However, the deals feature will only be comparing prices in the US with addition regions to be added after launch. From there, users will be given access, in waves, to test the server’s performance prior to its launch.
