Gamer Gear: Meet the folks of SteelSeries! Pt.3
By Jordan "Doomhammer" Kahn
As I continue to slog through all my SDCC material (I have no idea how to edit this Sylvester Stallone interview about The Expendables) the good folks of vVv Gaming have another cool video featuring their partnership with local gaming equipment company SteelSeries:
In Part 1 of vVv Gaming's interview with SteelSeries Chief Marketing Officer Kim Rom, Kim mentioned that one of the reasons he loved being with SteelSeries was because the company wanted to improve upon technology and products, rather than just making them look cooler.
Now, in the third installment of vVv's Interview with Kim Rom, we get to see all the same
attention to detail and passion for quality applied to products specifically for console players.
See the video after the jump!
When SteelSeries first began designing a headset for console, they brought one of vVv Gaming's top competitive players to their Chicago Headquarters. In a day-long meeting, they discussed as many possible aspects of hardware in relation to console gaming as they could think of, and when the first prototypes of the headset were made they incorporated as much of the input as could be fit onto a prototype. Twice more, vVv members were brought to the headquarters to try out the headsets and give feedback. Each time, the suggestions made during the previous visit had been implemented, showing an incredible capacity and willingness to create a product that would meet the needs of gamers.
