Is it possible to play on PS4/Xbox one using mouse and keyboard ??

All my life, I had been playing games on 800*600 resolution with low setting on my shitty laptop :( ... So far my gaming experience has been miserable.

So, I decided to buy a console or build my own PC. I'm considering consoles as I believe I could save some money. All these years (5-6) I have been playing on PC with keyboard and mouse. I bought a gamepad for playing some PC games, but found it hard to get used to it.

Now that I got the money buy new gaming hardware, I would like to know if it is possible to play on PS4/Xbox one using a Keyboard and mouse. Is it possible ??? If yes, how ??? Please inform :)

  1. Depends on game, some allow to straight connect them and some need KB + M emulators which are a little bit expensive.
  2. I don't think so.
  3. There’s ChronusMAX, a USB dongle that allows you to use XBox One controllers on a PS4, PS4 controllers on the XBox, mice and keyboards on both systems.

    If you buy a Sony Brand PS4 Mouse and Keyboard or a Microsoft Brand XB1 Mouse and Keyboard yes.
    Consoles have no "generic" mouse and keyboard drivers, so you can't just use any mouse and keyboard, you have to use ones specifically sold to work with the system.

    I wanted to just throw this little bit of info in here for you for future reference, take it as you will...

    I've had quite a bit of success with just about ANY Microsoft-branded KB/M set for use on the Xbox 360 AND Xbox One. I've also had quite a bit of failures with MS-branded KB/M sets. :P I've found that the newer sets of Microsoft-branded KB/M work well (those produced 2012 onward), while the older ones (2011 and older) don't seem to work properly, or fail to function at all. However, I haven't tried any of them specifically for playing games, as I'm not much of a console gamer. Just something for you to maybe try next time you wanna tinker with random ideas? :P LOL
