Why Gaming Cobra Is A Legitimate Company
eXtremeRate Limited Company History
As Gaming Cobra say they are a project of Extreme Rated Limited which according to them is one of the best gaming modding supplies company in the world since 2009, so I decided to do some investigating.
I used the waybackmachine which is a website that is a digital library of different domains, and provides a snapshot of what the website looked like way back in the day. I couldn’t find a snapshot of 2009, but the closest I could find was in 2011 with early evidence of Extreme Rated future modding expertise, a modded Xbox 360 controller.
To see extreme Rated internet past for yourself take a look at the above link.
I view this as good evidence that Extreme Rated is legitimate, I’ve been to the city they’re based in(Shenzhen) and it’s basically the Silicon Valley of China with numerous tech startups originating there, including Huawei, One Plus, and Xiaomi; Extreme Rated is just one of these companies.
