Introduction

It’s hard to be a PC gamer and not hear of SteelSeries. They’re renowned for some of the highest quality gaming peripherals produced today. Partnered with some of the biggest games companies in the world, and sponsoring some of the best professional gaming teams; SteelSeries are hard to avoid.

Today I’m looking at the latest headset from the firm, the SteelSeries Sibera v2 – Natus Vincere. It’s bright yellow, so is likely to draw attention, but will it draw customers? Let’s see.

Packaging

I’m quite fond of the the Siberia v2s packaging for a few reasons. The first is that it displays the headset quite well, despite only featuring half of the physical product via the window.

I do like boxes that come with windows built in, rather than cardboard doors. However, as you can see in this case, there was a bit of minor damage to the window in its transit to me. Bloody postal service.
