It's been known for a while that Microsoft have plans to bring mouse and keyboard to the Xbox One, with the question of when lingering instead of if. With the Minecraft Beta on the Xbox Insider program, it's now that we are getting a taster of what mouse and keyboard play lead to. In comparison to the Windows PC cursor, the Xbox One cursor is rather on the large size, but don't fret: it still works okay, as well as the scroll wheel! You can activate it via the options menu. Microsoft have repeatedly stressed that they are not introducing ... Read More »
We're big fans of LucidSound - we gave their first two headsets (the LS30 Wireless Universal Gaming Headset and the LS20 Amplified Universal Gaming Headset) four-and-a-half stars out of five apiece. LucidSound have produced some of the best-sounding headsets we've ever tested, and we can't wait to get our hands on the brand new LS40 Wireless Surround Universal Gaming Headset to put it through its paces. We're expecting great things! And we're expecting great things later in 2017, too, when LucidSound starts to ship officially-licensed audio products for Xbox One and Xbox One S. We think this is great news - ... Read More »
The name normally says it all with Razer products and it's the same with the Gigantus. Yes, it's a mouse mat. If you're still using a square cut from the back of a Rice Krispies packet, the Razer Gigantus makes a compelling case for upgrade. Note: Whilst Microsoft has announced that mouse support is coming to Xbox One, it's not here yet. We're testing this mouse mat on PC - a platform that Xbox Play Anywhere is seeing us use more frequently. The Gigantus is a large gaming mouse mat designed with the gamers in mind. The packaging's a clue ... Read More »
If you're prodding around the seedier corners of the internet, populating spread sheets or writing a letter to Auntie Maude in Canada, a mouse is a mouse is a mouse. If you're engaging in Overwatch, League of Legends or World of Warcraft on PC, the right mouse is most certainly not just any old mouse. Enter the Razer Deathadder Elite, an eSports gaming mouse that boasts a resolution of 16,000 DPI and a tracking speed of 450 inches per second. But whatever those numbers mean, how does this mouse perform? Note: Whilst Microsoft has announced that mouse support is coming to ... Read More »
War. What is it good for? Video games, apparently. And when these EA stablemates somewhat controversially went head to head in a crowded autumn release window, they were both winners. Critically, Titanfall 2 has the edge, but it was close. Less close has been the battle for sales, where by all accounts Titanfall 2 took an undeserved beating from Battlefield 1. So this battle of the controllers takes on a little extra frisson - who will win in this rematch? Actually, that's a bit misleading. Both the PDP Official Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2 Wired Controllers are functionally identical - ... Read More »
Two hours into my Furi play session, the music is pounding through the LS20 LucidSound Amplified Headset, my eyes fixated on the screen in attempt to conquer the challenges that lie ahead. The headphones have immersed me so much that I fail to notice my mother entering my room to tap me on the shoulder… Looks like I need a new pair of pants to go with this headset. The LS20 is the latest headset to come from the recently formed LucidSound. We've reviewed their other product, the LS30, and we were rather fond of it. So hopes were high ... Read More »
Got a Kinect 2.0 collecting dust, unused and unloved in a cupboard? Decided that shouting "Hey Cortana, record that!" eight million times Is just not your cup of tea? Well, thanks to a recent update in Windows 10, you can now use your Kinect as a (high quality) PC webcam, full body scanner, and more. Over on the Windows Developer blog, Microsoft's Yin Li explains that the necessary Kinect 2.0 drivers are now available through Windows update - no need to dig about inside the Kinect SDK (Software Development Kit). All you need to do is plug your Kinect into ... Read More »
The trouble with the digital download era is lack of hard drive space. Throw in 20gb day one patches and the Games with Gold selection each month, and pretty soon your 1tb HD has just enough space on it to squeeze some saved game data and that’s about it. Presumably that’s why the tech-heads at Seagate have announced the Game Drive for Xbox SSD – a 512gb drive that’s built specifically for the console, and according to the company, is perfect for elite gamers. Oh, and it comes in Xbox’s classic black and green colouring. Check it out below. Boasting fast boot ... Read More »
It's not often that you'll stumble across third party hardware products that have been officially licensed by Xbox, with the traditional green Xbox One banner emblazoned on the packaging, but the Horipad Pro For Xbox One is one such controller. As such you'd expect that this product would be of the highest quality, and live up to the high quality standards that Microsoft themselves set for their gaming accessories. Unfortunately, first impressions of the Horipad Pro are not exactly stellar ones. The initial unboxing is when the trepidation first sets in. The controller is extremely light; in fact, if you are an Xbox One ... Read More »
