Razer has released a teaser video to accompany the launch of the first wireless keyboard and mouse combo for Microsoft’s Xbox One console. The launch of the video has brought to light an accompanying image of the actual keyboard and mouse that Razer first revealed a couple of weeks ago, but which slipped under the radar.

We’ve known for a while now that Microsoft has been working with Razer on gaming keyboard and mouse solution for its Xbox One console. A new teaser video has been launched to mark its imminent release that reveals it features Razer’s Chroma lighting effects and the same type of mechanical keyboard actuation that is a highlight of its PC gaming keyboards. In fact, it was only when the teaser video was launched that it also surfaced that Razer had in fact given everyone a proper look at the wireless keyboard and mouse around a couple of weeks ago, but it went unnoticed for the most part.

If you’ve been wondering what has taken Razer so long to come with a custom keyboard accessory for the Xbox One, you only need to take a closer look at the picture accompanying the article. It appears to show a slide-out mouse pad that will allow gamers to enjoy the keyboard and mouse experience from the comfort of their lounge, which differentiates it significantly from its PC offerings. It also looks to integrate an Xbox-specific key to the bottom right of the keyboard as well.

The addition of the keyboard and mouse accessory will certainly appeal to PC gamers who historically have preferred a keyboard and mouse for gaming as it gives them greater precision and more custom keyboard functions that can be tailored to suit the individual. Expect to see a full reveal on January 8 at CES where its pricing and availability will also be announced.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have been particularly interested in all things Apple, but also enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture.
