  • It may be a lighting system or speakers.

Last night, Razer teased a new device for Xbox One which is supposed to bring "a new level of immersion" to the console. It's unclear what it is, but it could be anything from a controller to a lighting system. My money is on the lighting system because what else could enhance immersion? Well, speakers are also a pretty good guess. What do you think it could be? Let us know.

A few months ago, Microsoft and Razer signed a partnership that gave the latter exclusive rights to make accessories with Xbox Dynamic Lighting. Hopefully, this is related to that. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more because the reveal takes place in roughly a day.

  • I guess some headphones
  • Oh man. I really hope not. You’re crushing my dreams, man.
  • If they released proper game affecting RGB lighting for the Xbox One I would buy it in a heartbeat.
  • I'm sure that would be 80 dollars a LED. 😜
  • It can be done with Hue lights and some extra equipment, if I'm understanding what it is you're looking for. I get it done with the Hue Sync program on my laptop and stream my xbox video feed via the xbox app. Then the lights recreate the colors output by the console, while still playing on the TV.
  • and it can be done screen accurate with something like this

  • Yeah, that dream screen thing is kinda what I was thinking. but not so much replicating the colours on the screen so much as mimicking the in game lighting itself (and obviously context sensitive lighting like flashes of red when getting hit, filling the room with blues and whites when underwater, that sort of thing), which I think is what illumiRoom does.
  • They're using the classic jumping cornstartch on speakers to show sound working. So one would have to assume it's some RGB speakers, probably with lasers that are linked to the mouse. They shoot you in the head when you press the mouse button.
  • Please be IllumiRoom, please be IllumiRoom....
