Razer Forge TV pre-order reveals May 1 shipping date

Razer's little gaming console, the Razer Forge TV, went up for pre-order today...and then was pulled without explanation. We first got a look at the console back during CES 2015, and it is, in true Razer fashion, a stylish dark console with green trim and a matching controller.

Of course these speakers will still be pointing downward, not forward.

Viewing in 720p is available for all; full HD uploads, not so much.
