Get your zSilver ready: Razer now has it’s own online game store

Razer is now jumping into the digital distribution market with the launch of the Razer Game Store. The move shouldn’t be surprising given the company has its toes dipped into mostly everything gaming-related, spanning laptops, peripherals, controllers, and even a smartphone. Selling digital PC games makes perfect sense, and with Razer’s stamp of approval on each sale, you can be rest assured the keys you enter into Steam and Uplay aren’t fake or invalid as seen with other “discount” digital distribution platforms. 

The company set out to create an online store that rewards customers for every purchase. Benefits include earning zSilver, aka the company’s virtual loyalty credits, that counts toward the purchase of Razer peripherals, discounts, gift vouchers, and so on. For instance, you can get the Razer Atheris mouse for 91,500 zSilver, or the Razer Hammerhead Pro V2 headset for 128,500 zSilver. 

For starters, purchasing the vanilla version of Far Cry 5 currently costs $54, which will grant you 2,159 zSilver credits using a credit card or PayPal. Purchase the game with 5,399 zGold coins and your zSilver intake jumps up to 5,399 tokens. 

Razer’s zGold is a digital currency launched last year along with the zVault virtual wallet. You can use zGold to purchase goods on Razer’s storefront or other third-party services like GamersGate, Indiegala, and within supporting games. Overall, zGold are digital coins that, when used instead of cash, earn reward tokens (zSilver) that can be saved and redeemed for products or applied against purchases for a discount. 

According to Razer, your virtual zVault wallet can only hold 50,000 zGold coins, and only 200,000 zSilver tokens. You can purchase zGold coins in increments of $10 up to $100 worth of digital currency, or purchase coins in the following bundles: 

zGold  Cash price 








 That said, if you want to use zGold to purchase a $54 game, you need to purchase $60 worth of coins using the Custom Amount option in your zVault account. 

Meanwhile, every week Razer will pick four new games and slash their prices. As a launch bonus, pick any one of the four “Razer Exclusives” and get a $15 discount voucher for the Razer store, twice the zSilver earned per purchase, and a $10 Razerstore hardware voucher. This week’s specials include Far Cry 5 ($54), Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom ($54), Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus ($24), and Assassin’s Creed Origins ($34).

 “The Razer Game Store sells only 100 percent licensed official keys,” Razer says. “We work with game publishers/developers directly to obtain their permissions and the keys that we are selling on this store.” 

The store is open for business now in North America, the United Kingdom, Germany, and France. Head here to get one of 10,000 Steam keys for the indie game Furi as part of the launch celebration.

Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection contains first 2 Metal Gear games, Konami confirms
metal gear solid master collection extra games

Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 will contain two more games than expected, according to its PlayStation Store listing and a statement that the game's publisher, Konami, provided to Digital Trends. Those titles are the original Metal Gear and its follow-up, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake.

You might have missed the announcement of Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 during the PlayStation Showcase. An image that appeared briefly following the Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater's announcement confirmed the collection and revealed it would feature Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.
The PlayStation Store listing goes into a lot more detail about what versions of what games are actually included in this collection. It confirms that Master Collection Vol. 1 will include the HD Collection versions of Metal Gear Solid 2 and 3, in addition to a version of Metal Gear Solid that also features the VR and Special Missions, but it also states that the package includes the first two games in the Metal Gear series.
Digital Trends contacted Konami to affirm that this PlayStation Store listing was accurate, and a PR representative confirmed that "for the Collection, the PS Store listing is correct."
While Metal Gear Solid is when Hideo Kojima's stealth espionage series went mainstream, it actually began when Konami released Metal Gear on the MSX2 in Japan and Europe in 1987. This game, along with its 1990 Japan-only follow-up, Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, are top-down stealth games where players infiltrate enemy bases as Solid Snake. These games laid the groundwork for the Metal Gear Solid series' lore, and they are still canon within the wider series. As such, it's great to see these games present in the collection, as they've only really ever been available as bonuses in rereleases of Metal Gear Solid 3.
Metal Gear Solid: Master Collection Vol. 1 launches this autumn.

There’s an HP gaming PC for $530 in Best Buy’s Memorial Day sale
The HP Victus 15L gaming PC on a desk.

If you've been thinking about dipping your toes in modern PC gaming but you'd like to start with a budget gaming desktop, look no further than the HP Victus 15L, which is available from Best Buy's Memorial Day sale with a $200 discount. From its original price of $730, you'll only have to pay $530 for this gaming PC. However, you need to act fast with your purchase -- there's a few days left until the holiday itself, but we're not sure if stocks will last until then.

Why you should buy the HP Victus 15L gaming desktop
The HP Victus 15L gaming desktop, with its 12th-generation Intel Core i3 processor, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 graphics card, and 8GB of RAM, isn't as powerful as the top-of-the-line models of the best gaming PCs. However, it meets the minimum system requirements for some of today's best free-to-play games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, DOTA 2, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Valorant, especially if you're willing to scale down the graphics settings a notch to ensure smooth performance. As a starter gaming desktop, you won't be limited with the titles that you can play on the HP Victus 15L, and when you feel the need for an upgrade, you can easily swap out its components for more advanced ones as that's one of the advantages of a gaming PC over a gaming laptop.
