Are you fond of mobile games? Do you own a gaming console? Check this one out.
There was a time during the 90s and 00s when video games and play stations ruled the roost and it was truly a golden period that only those that grew up in that era can understand, which is why most of them relive it even in this day and age when we have electronic gadgets galore.
Mobile games have slowly taken over video games as the millennial generation has arrived and they want everything within the palm of their fingers, even if it means entertainment stuff like games.
Mobile games come in different genres and varieties, which is why they continue to be popular even after a decade in existence. Gaming technology has also evolved to a whole new level as youngsters today are playing games on gaming consoles, which are handheld devices meant for playing games.
Razer Inc. is one of the most prominent companies that manufactures consumer electronics, including gaming consoles, and is one of the best options to choose from when it comes to gaming devices.
The company organized a RazerCon 2022 event where it launched its first ever handheld gaming device in the form of Razer Edge 5G, which is also said to be the world’s first ever dedicated 5G handheld gaming console.
The game was first teased at the Mobile World Congress (WMC) held in early 2022 as the makers announced their partnership with Verizon to allow their device to stream games through platforms like Xbox Cloud, NVIDIA GeForce Now, Stream Link, etc. to name a few.
