Keyboard & Mouse combo (sort of) on Xbox One - Yay or Nay?

Editor 8
Found 22nd Oct 2017
What we saying? Does the traditional keyboard and mouse option hold any place in console gaming? I've always used it as a sofa and chill kind of experience, and you honestly wouldn't be faulted for considering the balancing aspects of player with one of these and those with a gamepad.

I ask because I've just seen that Hori are releasing the Tactical Assault Commander Pro One (TAC Pro One) KeyPad and Mouse Controller for Xbox One & Windows PC(currently $149.99), a keyboard and mouse combination option that will be available for Xbox One and Windows 10.

Buy a proper PC

I would have nowhere to place/rest these in my living room. They would be a nightmare to use.

Not a fan of this. People that have mastered using a mouse and keyboard will dominate online...if they create different matchmaking playlists for control pad users and mouse users it will split the playerbase.

They already do.

Keyboards/keypads & mouse controllers have been available for video games consoles for many years.

In fact, I still have a mouse for the original PlayStation console:

Just search YouTube for, for example...
