Didn't see that one coming to be honest!

I'm glad that we might see more high-quality streaming accessories tho! :)

You know... we may just get the things Taran was asking for and what me and fellow prospective buyers were looking for- gif enabled tiles on buttons with possibly Cherry based integration. I'm not a streamer- but would love to use this to quick launch applications and swap profiles, and am personally going to hold off buying one until they release something under Corsair! :)

This is something I'm kind of afraid. Stream deck itself is quite straight forward piece of tech and all it really has had is very open and listening company supporting it and being ready to implement new things for it into their software. With Corsair hopping in, I fear that it's gonna be bye bye for that and sooner or later Corsair will bring Stream deck 2 with RGB shit and drop the feature updates for the Stream deck to milk money. I just hope someone somewhere leaks out the Stream deck softwares source or Elgato manages to make it open source so people can start supporting the Stream deck in the worst case where Corsair drops it, after all it would be really shame to drop that amount of development (when I got it there was options to just add folders, use macros and some support to Elgatos game capture, now they are supporting most of the streaming softwares, have folders in folders for infinite amount of macros, gif-support, soundboard feature and a lot more).

Maybe their products will become a little more affordable?

Corsair and affordable are not words that co-exist. You pay a premium for the Corsair name.

That's pretty neat.

Elgato isn't a big name brand like Corsair. Possibly rebranding the company can lead to more exposure which of course means more sale. Also being apart of Corsair might mean more money to fund more products that associate with streaming like the stream deck and such.

Well, I never pay full price. I generally try to get things on sale. But when compared to others, my K70 wasn't that expensive. Compared to the competition? No. The Void Headset I have was on sale, and made it cheaper than the Kingston and other offerings.

 

However, one thing I just thought of, I've stuck with Corsair products because I started out with the Void Headset and H100i. And I really didn't want to have to install more software to get things running. The Lighting Node Pro and K70 all use the same software, so I have been sucked into the eco-system as well. But when I wanted something I knew would last, I compared Corsair against Logitech (because Razer and last don't go together), and found Corsair to be cheaper.

 

SO with the eco-system in mind, it might be a lot easier for users to have a simpler software solution. If Elgato can be incorporated in the Corsair Utility Engine instead of having to have additional crap installed, then I'd definitely be down for that. Make it simpler on the user. But I do think that getting people into the Corsair software eco-system will help keep them there because well. It's simpler and more convenient.

That is the worst part. At least with Stream deck Elgato really haven't troubled users with useless updates and aimed to release update when there's something new in the software that provides new functions/features for the Stream deck. At the same time Corsair Link updates now and then and (at least for me with AX860i) the most they have updated is the layout how sensor data is presented.

 

I have been more than happy that I paid what I paid for the Stream deck when it came out and more so when Elgato hasn't gone to the big C BS strategy and tried to sell me Stream deck 2.0 just for the features they have added to it through the updates. And this is what I fear, that Corsair will bring the big C strategies to the Elgato and even if the eco-system and stuff will come, we will also loose the now and then coming feature updates just because it's much more profitable to sell a new device with new features even if all it would take was to update the software for the older device. But all is left to be seen, I'm very happy with what Stream deck has become but there's still a lot of things that could be done with it and the question just is will Corsair let the Elgato continue as they are or are they going to at least make it even more profitable.

 

Also to add to the news. Corsair has bought Elgato Gaming and the whole Elgato brand. Elgato Eve, which is their smart home division, has not been sold to the Corsair and will be rebranded as Eve Systems. (Source) E: Was already in the OP.

Oh please don't inspire them...

 

honestly im hoping for the other way around.

full keyboard with all streamdeck keys. or at least something like a numpad add-on or something.

also maybe corsair can streamline production a bit?
