Min-Liang Tan is clearly part of the PC Master Race, and good on him, sir.

If you’ve ever wondered why Razer doesn’t make too many peripherals for the Playstation 3, today the company’s founder Min-Liang Tan has an explanation for you.
In a series of tweets on the subject he revealed that Razer don’t make PS3 accessories because, well, he doesn’t really use his PS3. Rather than make stuff just to sell to gamers for money, he said he designs things that, as a gamer, he really wants to use.
When someone pointed out that it is not a particularly sound business strategy, Tan retorted saying that it is not only about business to them, and that if it was, they would be a much larger company than they are today.
None of this is to say that Tan dislikes his PS3, saying he enjoyed InFamous and dug it out again for The Last Of Us, but that when he did so it had — literally — been gathering dust.
How do you feel, PC gamers? Do you think his attitude is selfish? That he should design his goodies for everyone? Or that using his gamer sense for inspiration as to what the gamer needs is a better idea? Let us know!
