Twitch star Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek has revealed his biggest disappointment with the PlayStation 5 – and all centers around not being able to use his keyboard and mouse, which you can do with an Xbox. 

After years of waiting, both Microsoft and Sony have finally released their next-gen consoles in the form of the Xbox Series X/S and the PlayStation 5 – with demand for the new consoles soaring around the globe.

Gamers from all corners of the globe have been desperate to get their hands on them, even if that means waiting a few extra months because of delays in production and shipping.

Shroud, though, has been one of the lucky ones – getting a PS5 without any issue. However, he does have a problem with the next-gen console, but it’s nothing something that everyone will find as annoying as he does.

The new hardware generation closes the gap between consoles and PC.

During his November 16 stream, the former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro had been playing God Of War on his new hardware when he flagged his issue – not being able to use mouse and keyboard. 

The streamer noted that he’d try to play Spider-Man: Miles Morales, The Last of Us 2, and Demon Souls with a keyboard and mouse but the console pretty much told him to go elsewhere. 

“Unfortunately, PlayStation and Sony and stuff don’t really care which kind of makes me sad a little bit but that’s ok, it is what it is,” he said, advising one viewer to buy an Xbox if they want to use mouse and keyboard on next-gen. 

Shroud even took to Twitter to see if anyone had any fixes or workarounds so that he could use his peripherals of choice, but, that came to no avail either. 

Some might point to this being an issue that Shroud can simply avoid by playing on PC instead of the new console, but, the games he wants to play aren’t available there so his hands are tied. 

As he points out, Xbox does carry support for keyboard and mouse, and it probably wouldn’t be all that hard for Sony to implement it either, but, it’s unlikely to change anytime soon, giving Microsoft a leg up.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
