Philips announced a partnership with gaming lifestyle brand Razer. The partnership gives Razer customers access to Philips Hue Entertainment to create a more immersive experience during gaming sessions through reactive lighting that corresponds to what is happening on the screen—essentially a surround sound effect for the eyes.

This partnership also allows developers of video games to construct unique lighting and color effects to match the graphics on the screen with lights on Razer devices. Users have the opportunity to customize their setups however they like.

The program was made available on January 9 on Razer products with Razer Synapse 3 software and only works with video games that were designed to function with the Philips Hue and Razer Chroma Link integration.
