Let’s Play Xbox and PC with the Same Corsair Peripherals (and Lapboard)!
Peter Donnell / 3 weeks ago
It’s no secret that you can play on the Xbox using a keyboard and mouse. However, I have never heard of any of my friends doing it, I never see it on my social media, and honestly, I’m starting to think I’m the only one who even bothered. That being said, I also play my Xbox games on PC (via Games Pass) mostly with the controller. However, with many FPS games now dominating the landscape, and many of those being available on both PC and Xbox, it seems like the perfect time to dive into this. Even more so, since there’s a bunch of games on Xbox Games Pass that support Cross Play! I can plug my controller into my PC and play Halo MCC against other controller wielding gamers regardless of whether they’re on PC or console, which is fantastic. Of course, the same is true of keyboard and mouse, and that’s what I’ll be putting to the test today.
Xbox and PC with Corsair
My good friends at Corsair were happy to get in on the action for this, and rightly so, as they’ve got some of the best peripherals on the market and are one of the best-known brands in PC gaming. Furthermore, they also have hardware that we know is well supported on Xbox. Finally, they’ve also got a range of products that are well suited to gaming on PC, but also playing games from the couch, thanks to their Gaming Lapboard! Don’t feel tied to the exact setup I’ve used, Corsair make a massive range of mice, keyboards and headsets you could pick from to suit your own taste and requirements. I’m sure other brands have some stuff that’ll work just fine too, but at least Corsair’s Lapboard is compatible with their keyboards, so it makes sense to stick with them for my testing at the moment.
