Razer finally introduced the Razer Turret for Xbox One, a wireless keyboard and mouse combo designed for console players so that they can take advantage of mouse and keyboard controls. While it’s fancy, full-featured, and sleek, it’s also expensive. The combo pack is going for $249 and its available for pre-order right now.
“We’re extremely proud to team up with Microsoft to bring you this exclusive collaboration,” says Razer Co-Founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan. “With the Razer Turret for Xbox One, it is now possible to bring the full experience of a keyboard and mouse, with lighting and game integration to Xbox One.”
Built for gaming on the couch, the Razer Turret for Xbox One offers a 2.4 GHz wireless connection via a single dongle for the mouse and keyboard, and battery life of up to 40 hours on a single charge.
With Xbox Dynamic Lighting and Razer Chroma, users can customize their gear with up to 16.8-million color options and lighting effects for their keyboard and mouse. Additionally, Razer has been working with developers to bring Xbox Dynamic Lighting, and Razer Chroma support in-game, offering immersive experiences on supported titles such as “X-Morph-Defense,” “Vermintide 2” and more.
“Razer Chroma expands even further into the living room,” says Tan, “building upon the success we’ve had with Philips Hue in room lighting.”
The keyboard features Razer’s mechanical switches, engineered for durability and reliability with a lifespan of up to 80-million keystrokes. A dedicated Xbox key also instantly pulls up the Xbox One dashboard for quick navigation. The included mouse is modeled after the Razer Mamba Wireless gaming mouse and features a high-performance 5G advanced optical sensor and Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches with up to 50-million clicks durability. The mouse surface is conveniently hidden underneath the main body of the keyboard and extends for use, then retracts for charging and storage. A built-in ergonomic wrist rest extends from the base of the Razer Turret keyboard for Xbox One for added comfort.
The Razer Turret for Xbox One is also fully compatible with PC (Windows 10), enabling gamers to take their game from the PC to console and back. Microsoft is giving fans that pre-order a $25 Xbox Gift Card at microsoft.com.
