  • Guest, I'm signing an executive order to make Courier the official sarcasm font on UnionVGF.

I had no issue with $150 for the Elite controller. $250 for mouse and keyboard? Holy ish! Especially since it works on very few games. Glad that basic mouse and keyboard work find on the system.
True, but the same could be said for all other compatible keyboards and mice. My guess this is using MS proprietary wireless tech as in their controllers

Hopefully you can just buy the keyboard separately, I'm good on the mouse tbh (Logitech Wireless here).

Unofficial kb and mouse are already ruining consoles. So many people run them in FPS games now. Any game that has a kill cam makes it obvious. People doing 180 headshots. I think I'm done with console shooters. May as well play on PC and have a level playing field.

even if you support keyboard and mouse, the point MS don't get is that the 3rd party like xim don't follow the rules of the developers. That is your biggest problem.

Xim bypass the developers' requirements to play the games based on their rules. When the developers go to check it the XIM acts like a controller and tricks the game to think it is a controller.

Also, you split the community bigtime with a controller vs K&M.

Hasn’t ms or other third party devs already block the use of xim?

Go in and choose not to be matched with kB/m players like you do in Gears.

The problem is people aren't going to spend $250 on the official mouse and keyboard. They are going to drop $99 on Xim and another $60-70 for a decent enough kb and mouse.

This is just going to put the idea in people's heads, then they'll see the price of the official add on and look for alternatives.

The R6 Siege competitive console scene is dominated by it already. It is only a matter of time before it goes even more mainstream.

Right, I just played BLops4 and got my ass handed by one player every time with that pistol with ease.

I already think it is too late for the developers to save their games. 2 things will happen to me.

1. Quit playing shooter games (which I should).
2. Join the club and buy that device and play it with K&M.

I hate to say it, but I am getting closer and closer. Some games are ok, but others it is really noticeable.

It just seems this happens a ton more in certain games.

Just listen to most youtubers and you can hear the mechanical keyboard clicking in the background even though they are on console.
