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 
1,000 

$10 

3,000 

$30 

5,000 

$50 

10,000 

$100 

 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.

Metroid Prime 4: release date prediction, trailers, gameplay, and more
Closeup of Samus from Metroid Dread.

One of Nintendo's lesser-known yet still beloved franchises is Metroid -- a series that originally began on the NES, putting us in the shoes of bounty hunter Samus Aran. Now, over 35 years later, fans are eagerly awaiting the next entry in the series, Metroid Prime 4, which has been in the works for several years.

The Prime series takes the formula introduced in the 2D games and turns it into a 3D, first-person adventure that still very much feels like Metroid, despite the perspective shift. Hype for the next installment in the series has found new life now that the original Metroid Prime is available to play on the Nintendo Switch. While there isn't much we know about Metroid Prime 4, there are some small tidbits of information around the internet here and there. It's possible that Metroid Prime 4 could be one of the headline titles for the Nintendo Switch 2. We've scoured as much as we could find to bring you everything we know about Metroid Prime 4.

The best iPhone emulators
A collage of the delta emulator.

The market for iPhone games has become so wide and diverse that it can realistically compete with most console and PC offerings. Where we once only got cheap time-wasters, we now have complete experiences that don't feel any less impressive than what the competition offers. In fact, a lot of games made for consoles are appearing on the iPhone now that it is becoming so powerful. However, older games have paradoxically been mostly absent from the app store.

That all could be about to change as emulation is now allowed on iPhone, though with some caveats that any retro fan should know about before getting too excited to play all your favorite NES games on your phone. Here's what's up with iPhone emulators, as well as our picks for a few of the best ones you can get right now.
What you need to know about emulation on iPhone
Emulators on iPhone, as well as emulation in general, are in a strange legal gray zone. Previously, the only way to get an emulator on your iPhone was through some workarounds that generally involved jailbreaking your phone. That differs from Android, which has enjoyed native emulators for years. In 2024, Apple updated its App Store guidelines to allow for emulators on its store, but with some important restrictions.
