Corsair has announced that its wide range of gaming keyboards and mice will support the Xbox One. Microsoft recently announced keyboard and mouse support for the Xbox One and developers can choose to support their game for such input if desired. Corsair also said that the Elgato Stream Deck can now be integrated with Mixer for improved live streaming.

Microsoft recently announced keyboard and mouse support for the Xbox One, offering gamers the control and precision that PC users have enjoyed since the beginning. Corsair is a well known brand when it comes to gaming peripherals and the company has announced that it is partnering with Microsoft to become an Xbox licensed hardware partner. All Corsair wireless and wired keyboards and mice can now be used with the Xbox One on select titles. 

Not all Xbox games support keyboard and mouse input and developers are required to explicitly add support to their games. The current list of supported games is just a handful but expect more games to support this feature in the days to come. Microsoft is said to be working with game developers to ensure that all players, no matter the choice of input device, get to have a fair and balanced gameplay experience. 

Corsair also said that it is partnering with Microsoft on other initiatives as well such as the Mixer live streaming service. Mixer broadcasters can now leverage integration with the powerful Elago Stream Deck to further enhance their live streams.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
