The Razer Onza is allegedly coming out on 2/28/2011. The problem is nobody knows where to get one. Amazon doesn't list the Razer Onza and neither does Gamestop or Buy.com. I've emailed the company twice. I got one response and it was instructions for ordering them through a distributor. Yeah, I don't want to sell them like that. There is a link on Razerone.com to their affiliate program, which is through Linkshare. I have a Linkshare account and can not find any information for this company on Linkshare.com. So WTF Razer Onza?
Homefront, THQ's entry into the earth war shooter's over saturated market. Homefront will be release just weeks after a huge PS3 exclusive Killzone 3 and Epic's multiplatform PWNr, Bulletstorm. I think Homefront is releasing in a tight market. Better make sure some of your friends are getting this game with you, if you don't want to play by yourself. Amazon.com has a $10 coupon for a future video game purchase and exclusive Avatar DLC. Gamestop has some exclusive guns, check out the links below.
Pre-order Homefront to receive the in-game, multiplayer Resistance Pack for three advance unlocks, plus the GameStop Exclusive Pump-Action Shotgun. 870 Express Shotgun: Get up close and personal with the Express 870 Shotgun, an exclusive firearm for Multiplayer available only through this pre-order offer.
