    Re: Razer Turret for Xbox One launched - works with PC too

    Too expensive for console use, I know some of us pay more than this just for a keyboard for the PC, but as mentioned in the article this costs more than an actual console, it is a different market and should be priced accordingly. Perhaps they will be bringing out a lower end version after they see where the sales of this goes, and it might still be tempting for the 4k One X user who wants to splash out. However, Razer can do one in general after their GPU mining software debacle, I won't be buying their stuff ever after that!

    Does this means you can't use regular keyboard and mouse with Xbox?
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    Re: Razer Turret for Xbox One launched - works with PC too

    The pricing is absurd, it's just completely crazy. You can just plug in a regular keyboard and mouse if you really want to use one on the xbox one, so there is no need to go for one branded as being "designed for xbox one". The pricing is even more daft given how few games currently offer support for it, and also how few single player games would really benefit.

    I still think its a massive mistake to add this kind of official support mind, particularly as it's coming to games like Fortnite which are multiplayer focused where anyone with a KB/Mouse is going to be at a huge advantage vs those on a controller. Luckily as I don't use my Xbox for anything other than a UHD Blu Ray player it won't affect me

    Now, I laughed earlier about the pricing, but having now thought about it, the £250 asking price isn't too bad compared to their PC equivalents; my Razer Blackwidow Elite keyboard RRPs at £179 and my Razer Mamba Hyperflux + Firefly RRPs at £249. The Xbox Razer Turret is essentially the same offering but with proper wireless Xbox support and a pad for using it on the sofa.
    Xbox and PlayStation players spent a billion on skins and guns in Fortnite this year, they're not short of a bob or two, let me tell ya

    I'm with you there. I tried it for gaming once and fell out with the TV over it, the input lag was despicable despite it being a reasonably high end and very new Samsung model.

    Does the TV not have a gaming mode? It was pretty obscure on my really old Samsung, and still not good.

    Yeah, it doesn't seem to do anything to be honest. Even going down to 1080p and turning off the HDR and things like that didn't improve it. Just TVs init, input lag isn't a consideration.

    I mean, if it's a 4K and you're feeding it a 1080p input, the lag will increase as it does the processing to upscale the image.

    As with all things is aries TV to TV. I'm on a Sony W7/8 which was considered the best gaming TV pre-4k and HDR IIRC - and it's mid-range (11ms input).
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    I gave up using TV's and have my console at the PC desk now, using a monitor is far better provided you can connect some external speakers too.

    They won't be able to afford PC gaming if they blow $250 on a sh*tty low quality razer kb/mouse alone ... more than the console they use it for would set you back lol
