I’ll admit that I haven’t ever paid attention to Min-Liang Tan, not for any reason he has just never popped up on my radar. For those that don’t know he is the CEO of Razer gamer gear and appears to be pretty outspoken on his personal twitter account.
Razor are very famous for making some incredible gaming peripherals but oddly enough they’ve never really made anything for the PlayStation brand and no one has ever really known why.. until now.
Tan tweeted the following on Saturday
“One of the big reasons why we don’t make Playstation accessories is because I don’t really spend time with mine.”
And then the Internet exploded, as usual a steady stream of abuse was directed his way and one of the things that was posted was that he was selfish for not doing so… to which he responded
@GWAlistair Why’s it selfish? I design stuff I actually want as a gamer rather than sell stuff to gamers for money.”
Now in a world of capitalism and the race for the almighty dollar this is incredibly refreshing to see. Granted it’s not the best news for the PlayStation fans but he is the main designer and if he doesn’t enjoy playing on the PlayStation then it makes sense that he isn’t making accessories for it.
In the end Tan acknowledged that they will look at the PlayStation 4 when it’s released and if they like it then things will be made for it.
