Razer is launching the Razer Turret, a wireless keyboard and mouse for the Xbox One video game console.

That means that console gamers won’t necessarily be at a disadvantage in the world of cross play, where PC gamers with mice and keyboards square off against console gamers in shooter games such as Fortnite.

“We’re extremely proud to team up with Microsoft to bring you this exclusive collaboration,” said Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, in a statement. “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.”

The Razer Turret is built for gaming on the couch, with a 2.4-gigahertz connection via a single dongle for the mouse and keyboard, and battery life of up to 40 hours on a single charge.
