Gaming gear of all types often incur a price premium. In some cases, the price hike compared to a non-gaming equivalent is enough to dissuade gamers with budgetary limits. GAMDIAS, a brand-new entrant into the red-hot gaming peripherals market, wants to challenge the notion that high quality means high cost for the consumer.
“We believe that a fantastic gaming experience does not have to break your bank,” says Eldon Su, GAMDIAS’ CEO. “With relentless research and innovation, GAMDIAS is able to offer premium quality gaming peripherals that are also budget-friendly.”
The company’s new products will be available for pre-order from Newegg starting today, with actual market debuts being made later on in the month. The initial product line-up includes:
