"With the Razer Turret for Xbox One, it is now possible to bring the full experience of a keyboard and mouse, with lighting and game integration to Xbox One."

Additionally, Razer has been working with developers to bring Xbox Dynamic Lighting and Razer ChromaTM support in-game, offering immersive experiences on supported titles such as X-Morph-Defense, Vermintide 2 and more."

It also boasts a 2.4 GHz wireless connection as well as a battery life of up to 40 continuous hours on a single charge. As for the keyboard itself, it "features Razer's gaming grade mechanical switches engineered for durability and reliability with a lifespan of up to 80-million keystrokes. A dedicated Xbox key also instantly pulls up the Xbox One dashboard for seamless navigation."
