Gaming consoles with keyboard and mouse support are probably every gamer’s dream. This might become a reality sooner than you’d think, Microsoft and Razer are preparing a surprise. Official sources suggest the two companies are currently working on a way to integrate support for peripheral devices on Xbox.
Microsoft and Razer are preparing an update for Xbox
Playing games on Xbox by using a controller is the traditional way to do it, but have you ever imagined how a keyboard and mouse would change things? You might soon see it happen, as Windows Central has just made an exclusive presentation.
It turns out Xbox games will soon get the integration of Razer Chroma RGB, which should greatly improve their visual features. According to the presentation, all these features and integrations should have been part of the April update. In other words, they should appear with the Xbox Fall Update for 2018. However, the news is not official yet.
The update will also bring a keyboard and mouse integration on the console
Even so, the update comes with a great prospect for the future. It turns out the new features aren’t only visual, but they might bring a great integration. More precisely, the developers might be trying to integrate keyboard and mouse support for Xbox games. However, gamepad play will remain active.
Here’s how this keyboard and mouse support will work. You will only be able to use one keyboard and one mouse at a time. Also, the console will be able to identify them and tell them apart from a controller. However, there’s another great thing about the integration. If there’s a multiplayer game, you can connect a controller, a keyboard, and a mouse at the same time.
The developers wanted to integrate keyboard and mouse support since they are easier to use than a controller. If gamers have spent a lot of time playing on PC, they might not feel comfortable with a console. However, this might give them an advantage over controller during multiplayer campaigns.
