Valve And Razer Team Up For 'HellRazer', A Game With A Motion-Sensing Controller

Razer has announced that it will be co-developing a game with Valve Corporation. The game, HellRazer: Triple Helix, will use a dedicated controller called the Anaconda. The Anaconda will feature motion-sensing and gesture-recognition capabilities. According to the company's press release:

"The debut title -- 'HellRazer', will be a co-op squad based tactical FPS game that will be distributed through the Steam network. Legendary game developer GabeNewell will lead software development, while Razer will dedicate its time to design and create an intuitive game controller in its new research laboratories in Singapore. The new peripheral is slated to be the first true 1:1 motion sensing and gesture recognition controller."

HellRazer will be released in fall 2010. Additional information on the game can be found on its official site. I expect more details on the game and the controller to be unveiled at E3 2009.

I'm a little torn on the game. On one hand, I generally don't like games with dedicated controllers. I'm sure this isn't going to be a Steel Battalion situation and the Anaconda can be used for other PC games, but I'm concerned about HellRazer being an inferior experience if played with a "regular" mouse. On the other hand, it's Valve. The company's phenomenal track record makes me expect the best.

How about you? Are you down with the Valve & Razer dynamic duo? Would you plunk down money on an Anaconda specifically for HellRazer?

Update: April Fool's Day!!!
