Microsoft proclaim the keyboard to be ‘scary’, suggest an Xbox One controller instead

keyboard danger

According to Xbox Wire, Microsoft’s Xbox information website, the keyboard we hold so dear in PC gaming is ‘scary’. But fear not: should you be terrified of clacking keys, the Xbox controller is a great alternative! 

Want a new controller? Take a look at our best gaming mouse list.

The terrifying quote comes as part of their Windows 10 coverage, in an article that details five games completely compatible with the Xbox One controller. “We’ve compiled a list of some cool titles playable on Windows 10 that are 100% natively compatible with the Xbox One controller, so you’ll never even have to touch that scary keyboard. Perish the thought!” it declares. 

Microsoft are afraid of keyboards

Personally I’m absolutely petrified of my keyboard. The snapping sound of keys sends shivers through my bone marrow, and I’m worried that tapping them in a certain order will let loose the spirit of Gaming Christmas Future, where we’re all forced to play survival sims and MOBAs 12 hours a day. Quite honestly, with such a fear, I don’t know why I’m writing for a PC games website. 

Do you suffer from an acute keyboard phobia? Do you, like me, find the knowledge that you can play games on Windows 10 with an Xbox One controller both liberating and euphoric?

I'm scared to use a controller. That bloody thing vibrates at it's own will. I say kill it with fire.

How well does it work? And does the wireless work or does it need a cable?

you need a special dongle supplied by MS to use wireless not sure it's out yet.

Unfortunately, I have not tried it yet, but I do know that the wireless dongle is coming out on December 31st (this will be the only "real" way to get wireless that I am aware of) for $24.99, and the cable that comes with the PC version of the controller is infamously bad- I would recommend buying some extra cables in case the stock one goes out.

upgrade to a DS4, they are miles ahead of the older pad, I never realised how bad the PS3 pad was till I started using a DS4.

Thumbs are great, I have a couple, but they just can't quite aim as well...

If you play the recorded sound of keys being pressed backwards it sounds like they are saying "Feed the keys and so your soul will be mine" on a loop. Those people at XBox are only trying to protect our souls.

Ms says keyboard and mouse is scary, then Sony has just officially licensed this controller.

Man, my keyboard I swear wants to try to kill me at night. I can't sleep, thinking that the clicking sounds it makes while I'm typing on it, is just it's way of saying that it's going to get me in my sleep.

Those damn scary keyboards. If only people knew the truth about them! Microsoft is finally outing with that truth! People need to heed their warnings!
