Our First Look at Razer’s Wireless Keyboard and Mouse for the Xbox One

Microsoft and Razer have been teasing Xbox One’s mouse and keyboard support for a while. Although mouse and keyboard support is already available on the Xbox One, Razer is yet to announce its official keyboard and mouse for the Xbox One built in partnership with Microsoft.

The company has now released a teaser picture for its Xbox One keyboard and Mouse, and they are pretty much what you would expect. From the picture, we can see that there is a dedicated Xbox One button on the bottom right of the keyboard, as well as a Windows button as usual, which means the keyboard is meant to work with Windows 10 devices as well.

Both the keyboard and mouse are wireless, and it seems like the keyboard will have a slide-out panel where you can place the keyboard and play games from your lap. That sounds quite cool and uncomfortable at the same time, though we’ll have to wait and see for the final product.

Razer’s new Xbox One keyboard is expected to integrate pretty closely with Xbox One games, with the backlight adapting based on your gameplay for supported games. That also is going to be very interesting, though much of the details remain unclear for the time being. Razer is going to officially announce these things at CES on the 8th of January, so keep an eye out.

    <p>I wonder what the pricing on this is going to be like? I always liked the look of Razer's Turret, which is a similar solution that appears more compact, but the $150 price point was always more than I was willing to pay:</p><p>https://www.razer.com/gaming-controllers/razer-turret</p&gt;

    <p>On a side note, I love me my Corsair K70 Rapidfire mechanical keyboard. Best typing experience ever. </p>

    <p>As a long time HTPC guy, I can say that the best experience for this is the Microsoft Ergonomic keyboard setup. 'Straight' keyboards are tough to type on in your lap (try it – that angle of your hands on the keyboard is tough). At the very least, this keyboard should have had a slight 'bend' to it to account for this.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#383945">In reply to dnationsr:</a></em></blockquote><p>My concern that it will be the usual bad build quality and ergonomics that I associate with Razer. Sure, they look cute, but for me they just aren't at all comfortable and break way too easily.</p>
