Razer Says More Details Incoming at CES Next Month
With keyboard and mouse support now being a thing on Xbox One, Razer and Microsoft are teaming up to make an official product that highlights this unique functionality.
When the feature was announced back in September, Microsoft teased that they were working with Razer to make something special. Now, the premium peripheral manufacturer has revealed a sneak peek at its wireless keyboard and mouse set up designed exclusively for the Xbox One console. While any keyboard and mice combo should work with the console, this is the first one that is officially being built with the Xbox One in mind.
“We are proud to partner with Microsoft to bring you the world’s first wireless keyboard and mouse designed for Xbox One,” states the official Razer website. “Equipped with our industry-leading gaming technologies, discover a new way to play in your living room.”
Razer will have more information to share next month on January 8th, 2019 at CES. In the meantime, users can sign up to receive updates so they don’t miss out on all the latest info.
As for games that support the feature, 14 games have already been confirmed including Warframe, Day Z, and Moonlighter. Microsoft has been quick to point out that mouse and keyboard support will be a tool for developers and that they will have full control over whether their games will support it or not.
“Mouse and keyboard input is not enabled by default for games,” said Jason Ronald, Director of Program Management at Xbox in a September post on Xbox Wire. “Each development team knows their titles best and we support them in creating the right experience for their games as they see fit, to ensure an optimal and fair gaming experience.”
