Updated January 25, 2019: It turns out Razer's announcement was meant to be for preorders. Still confused? We asked Razer what's up.
Updated January 10, 2019: Despite saying the Turret for Xbox One would be available earlier this week, it appears both Razer and Microsoft are still only allowing preorders. We've reached out to Razer on the discrepency and will update this post when and if things change.
The Razer Turret for Xbox One is now available for $250, Razer announced today at CES 2019. The mouse and keyboard combo designed for couch gaming marks the first major such peripheral launch for Xbox One since the console added keyboard and mouse support in 2018.
Though it looks like it's largely a copy of Razer's existing Turret lapboard, the Turret for Xbox One comes with a couple of special tweaks. For one, it includes a dedicated Xbox button, allowing you to jump back to the home screen, turn off your console, and more without having to pick up a controller. The keyboard portion also includes "Xbox Dynamic Lighting," which leverages Chroma lighting that responds to the action going on in games that support it.
Though mouse and keyboard support has been available on Xbox One for months now, it's worth keeping in mind that only a select number of games support it. Here's a look at the full list of games that include mouse and keyboard support on Xbox One, as well as those that support Xbox Dynamic Lighting:
Keyboard and mouse support + Xbox Dynamic Lighting
- X-Morph: Defense
- Vermintide 2
- Gears of War 5
- Day Z
- Deep Rock Galactic
- Children of Morta
- Strange Brigade
Only keyboard and mouse support
- War Thunder
- Surviving Mars
- Minion Masters
- Bomber Crew
