Nearly a year ago, we talked about how the Razer Hydra has jumped aboard the motion controller craze, and here we are today with news that might just have you revisit Left 4 Dead 2, Half-Life 2, and Team Fortress 2 if you have not played those games for some time already. Why, you ask? For the simple reason that full motion play is now supported for those games on the Razer Hydra.
Sixense and Valve have also integrated Sixense MotionCreator 2.0 software with Valve’s Steam gaming platform, ensuring backward compatibility for motion gaming with the Razer Hydra will be made available for more than 250 of the most popular titles that are available on Steam. I am thinking that this will definitely be a niche market, and will not exactly take off in a big way. Most folks will most probably give it a go just for the novelty factor, but ultimately at the end of the day, they will most probably stick to the traditional keyboard and mouse combination.
