Carlsbad, Calif. – September 11, 2008 Razer ™, the leading brand in e-sports gaming peripherals, today announced their official gaming sponsorship of the World Cyber Games (WCG) 2008 Grand Final, held from November 5 – 9, 2008 in Cologne, Germany.

Razer is the leading choice for professional gamers worldwide and as the Grand Final sponsor, Razer will provide the complete suite of e-sports peripherals for the tournament systems, comprising the Razer DeathAdder™ gaming mouse, the Razer Lycosa™ gaming keyboard and the Razer Piranha™ gaming headset. These products were selected as most of the professional gamers in the e-sports circuit already train and compete on them in global tournaments.

The Razer DeathAdder, in particular, was the top performer of all gaming mice tested by ESReality’s Sujoy Roy, who said that “no mouse today comes close to matching the incredible performance of the Razer DeathAdder.” Razer’s industry leading technology has powered most of the performance gaming peripherals used by top gamers in the e-sports scene. With this sponsorship, professional gamers from around the world will be equipped with products and technology they trust and know, from a brand that has been supportive of this community since the very beginning.
