Top Stores Clicked to: August 2015

The ranking of the top game stores on Razer Cortex: Deals continues to be massively dominated by Steam and Origin whose share of traffic grows to 75% (an increase of 5% since July). The gap between the two front runners has widened slightly as Steam’s gains were greater than Origin’s.

Amazon jumps up from eighth to third, mimicking what Green Man Gaming accomplished in July. Capturing 5% of user traffic, Amazon stands at a very far distance from the top two.

Also moving up this month is Gamestop, going from penultimate to the middle of the board at 6th place. The only other rise was registered by GOG.com who moved up from the bottom by one position.

This month’s greatest drop comes from Battle.net. After solid discounts in July, August saw Blizzard’s store bring its prices back to normal.

Most Wished For Games: August 2015

August brings us a surprise leader in the list of August’s most wished for games on Razer Cortex: Deals

The game most users added to their Razer Cortex: Deals wishlists in August was Block N Load. We partnered up with Block N Load to give away 10,000 steam keys for free exclusively to Razer users. Needless to say those keys vanished in a matter of hours. With this exclusive offer 10,000 lucky campers were able to save $9.99 on a freebie!

New to the top 10 this month is one of 2015’s highly anticipated titles. Fallout 4 barges in at 4th place as it’s November 10 release date inches closer.

Five months after it’s PC release, Grand Theft Auto V is still in front running positions with a respectable 2nd place and is starting to get its first discounts on several stores. This is the best time to have GTA V on your wishlist to get instant news on when its price drops.

August is the first month where Garry’s Mod isn’t among the most wished games on Cortex: Deals.

Speaking of drops, this month, gone from the top 10 are H1Z1, Just Cause 3, and Garry’s Mod. August is the first month where Garry’s Mod isn’t among the most wished games on Cortex: Deals.

In fifth Counter-Strike: Global Offensive hits its lowest position since we started tracking the games users have been adding onto their wishlists. We’ve seen CSGO hit the top of the charts on several occasions but this time around the old are giving way for the new.

What’s the Razer software user’s typical gaming PC?

Today we look at the guts of the Razer software users’s typical gaming PC. The information we based on is compiled from Razer Cortex’s Diagnose feature. When Diagnose is engaged, Razer Cortex performs an in-depth and thorough report of all the components and settings applied to a system.

Through these anonymous reports we are able to get an idea of what components go into a Razer gamer’s PC.

What we see here are the most frequent specs of the PCs that were diagnosed through Razer Cortex. Overall they make up a mid tier gaming rig, which makes sense since Razer Cortex: Boost provides a great benefit to owners of these types of setups.

When it comes to GPU, a larger portion of Razer users go for AMD’s Radeon R9 200 Series that came out last year. Processing wise, the most common CPU, an Intel Quad Core i5 clocking in at 2.5 GHz is not top spec but still holds its own with most games.

With 4Gb of RAM being the most limiting component found here this system will struggle to run some of the most recent titles. On a hard drive disk of 500Gb you’ll be limited to a handfull of installed games before you start running out of room for more.

To put this setup into perspective, with these components you’d be able to fit the minimum requirements for a game like Grand Theft Auto V. To run games like Counter Strike: Global Offensive and League of Legends (the two most played games by Razer software users) you’re well taken care of with a similar setup.

For a more hardware demanding title like The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt this configuration is already below its minimum requirements falling short in the memory and CPU department.

When it comes to the recently released Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, although the RAM meets the minimum requirements, the processing power of this Intel chip, however, fails to reach that standard.
