Popular Twitch streamer Shroud recently got his hands on the newly released PS5 but he was surprised at the lack of mouse and keyboard support on most PS5 exclusive games.
Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek is a Canadian streamer and former professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player. During his professional years playing CS:GO Shroud used to play for Cloud9. He retired from the professional level to continue streaming full time. His Twitch channel has reached over 8.4 million followers which is one of the largest on Twitch. He became famous for his insane aim in FPS and Battle Royale games like Call of Duty, PUBG, Apex Legends, Escape from Tarkov, VALORANT, etc.
Recently shroud announced that he was back to streaming exclusively on Twitch after the Mixer shutdown incident. Shroud was at the 10th spot of the most-watched Twitch channel in the first half of November.
Shroud on lack of Mouse and Keyboard on the PS5:
Recently Shroud got his hands on the newly released PS5. Seems like he is not happy with the lack of mouse and keyboard support on the PS5. He took to Twitter to vent out his frustration about this issue. He said,
“How do I play M+K on PS5. Somebody save me. Before you answer.. know that most games I’d like to play don’t actually support M+K. (GOW, TLOU, Demon soul’s, etc.)”
He asked for help regarding playing using a mouse and a keyboard on the PS5. But usually, most exclusive PS5 games don’t even support a mouse and keyboard. These games are created with the PS5 controller in mind and that is the intended way to play them.
Later Shroud more to his original Tweet, “Was so excited to get my hands on next-gen PS.. to find out they don’t support multiple ways of gamin ;(“
Shroud in this case is also not in the wrong for asking for multiple ways of playing games on the next-gen PS5. Even if the game controls are optimized for the controller it should in the least have the option of mouse and keyboard.
Do you agree with Shroud that PS5 games should have mouse and keyboard support? Should they only be playable via controller?
