Razer is famous for their rather excellent gaming hardware. Keyboards, mice and headphones make up the majority of the company’s products, but their latest announcement is more on the software side of things. Razer wants to make sure you get the best deals on games, and that’s exactly what Cortex does.

Razer revealed Cortex last night, an extension of their previous Game Booster software that helped PC game performance by closing background applications. Those features are still there, including the ability to capture screenshots and keep saved games a little safer, but Cortex is interesting for an entirely different reason.

It’s hard to keep up with gaming deals from all these different digital distribution services, but Cortex aims to streamline this. Create a wish list and let Cortex automatically scan multiple online services for the best price, as well as notify you when a game goes on sale. According to the press release:

Razer’s 10 million global users will get a competitive edge on the best deals across their favorite stores such as Amazon, Gamersgate, Gamestop, GOG.com, Green Man Gaming, Steam and Origin, with more to come.

Cortex will also monitor your gaming habits, suggesting games you may enjoy based on what you’ve been playing. It’s like opening up Steam daily to check for any good deals, except now you’re searching everywhere. Wallets worldwide are already cowering on corners.

Cortex is currently in early alpha testing, with Razer expecting to launch it on September 10th for Windows.

  1. Seriously? I thought Razor products were famous for being over priced junk.

      To give you an idea, my Razer mouse cost me R650 back in 2005, and it is STILL working like a baws. My KB cost me R1k and that was 6 years ago.

      I call them investments. Sure they are pricey, but you get what you pay for.

          Totally agree dude. My R80 genius keyboard was probably one of the first black keyboards they made! Before that it was that ugly cream colour. And it is still working likabaus!

          Well if you the regular day to day commuter then a Fiat Uno is for you. But if you the type that enjoys race tracks and every robot is a quarter mile sprint, and need to be on the cutting edge… you get the drift 😉

        Razer Naga and Naga hex lasted 6 months each. My black widow however is awesome and still going strong.

        So for mouses I prefer good old fashioned Logitec.

          Naga mouses are quite silly

    Competitive edge in buying games? O_o

    If I buy all the games first do I win a prize? Like another vacation at Paddedroomtopia with its all-you-can-eat supplement buffet?
