PC Gaming Gear Collaborations You Would Love to Have on Your Desk
by: The Beat Asia
When the pandemic hit, playing games was one of the many things we did to cope and fight boredom. We meet our friends (or meet new ones) virtually and spend hours exploring worlds, leveling up, and defeating bosses. As we spent more time gaming, however, a lot of us realized that a typical desktop setup isn’t enough anymore. We need the right gaming gear and specs to fully enjoy the games that we play.
If your gaming space is not yet complete, why not invest more in gears that are according to your taste? We recommend checking out and getting one of these product collaborations from popular gaming hardware brands.
Hello Kitty x Razer
Sanrio’s signature mascot character Hello Kitty now comes to your gaming desk to give it a touch of pink. This Razer collaboration features a specially designed gaming chair, mouse, mousepad, and a headset that makes the most of the brand’s Iskur X, DeathAdder Essential, Razer Goliathus, and Kraken BT series.
Our favorite? The Razer Kraken BT - Hello Kitty and Friends Edition and Kraken BT - Hello Kitty and Friends Edition. Those cat ears alone will make you add to cart. Apart from the cuteness, it features a 40ms low latency connection, so you’ll have a more in-sync audio when it’s in Active Gaming Mode. When not in gaming mode, these wireless Bluetooth headsets can last up to 20 hours (with lighting on) or 50 hours (with lighting off).
The kitty ears and earcups are powered by Razer Chroma RGB so you can create lighting combinations — up to 16.8 million colors — according to your preference and control them using Razer’s mobile app. The style possibilities are endless.
League of Legends x Logitech
League of Legends is in a league of its own, gaining popularity through the years since its launch in 2009. This team-based game has more than 100 million active monthly players and is one of the most popular games in the world. Like how you choose your champions, you should pick your gaming gear carefully as well.
What we recommend is getting both the Logitech G840 XL Gaming Mousepad and G PRO League of Legends Edition Wireless Gaming Mouse. This Logitech G, Logitech’s brand specifically for gaming mice, and Riot Games collaboration is a must-have for a smoother gaming experience. What’s more, the mat comes with a durable transport tube so you can keep it somewhere safe or bring it with you anywhere.
Genshin Impact x Razer
Razer is here to remind you that Paimon is not “emergency food,” but your new gaming partner. This Genshin Impact collaboration features a specially designed Razer Iskur X gaming chair, Razer DeathAdder V2 Pro wireless gaming mouse, and Razer Goliathus mousepad for all the travelers out there.
If you want to splurge, our best pick for you is the Razer Iskur X - Genshin Impact Edition. This ergonomic chair is made of multi-layered synthetic leather and high-density foam cushions. The navy blue and pink color combination gives off a constellation vibe, while the Paimon print literally shows that she has your back. Another plus is that you’ll get bonus in-game rewards (500 primogems, 20 Hero’s Wit, and 100,000 mora) after purchase. You can pull about 20 times in the character banners with that!
Razer announced in an Instagram post last March 14 that they’re replenishing their supply of the Iskur X Genshin Impact Edition gaming chair. Better make that pre-order soon as orders will be shipped on April 8.
