As some of you may know from reading our blog post, last week we showed gamers our new Logitech G products at The Gathering. The event lured thousands of gamers away from a relaxing Easter break at home to the small town of Hamar in Norway. The event was held at Vikingskipet, Hamar’s speed skating venue that was originally built for the Lillehammer Olympics of 1994. Vikingskipet’s large open spaces and excellent infrastructure made it the perfect site for this well-known event.
At the event, there were performances by DJs Mui and Da Tweekaz, a controlled hacking competition amongst many other competitions, laser shows, lectures on a variety of topics, such as 3D modelling and the positive effects of gaming, and morning workouts to keep everyone fit and active. And, of course, there were the gaming competitions themselves: Heroes of Newerth, League of Legends, Counter-Strike: GO, Quake Live, Shoot Mania, DotA 2…the list goes on.
We spent several months working hard on the new Logitech G line, so it was with excitement and a few nerves that we took the products to Norway for scrutiny from the only people that matter – the gamers themselves. We had little need to worry – the enthusiastic reception we received from fans at The Gathering was humbling.
