Xbox One Will Soon Support Keyboard and Mouse

Xbox One X Lifecycle

Xbox One X is releasing soon and with it a lot of Xbox One's games will get visually enhanced to match the console's features. Ybarra said that developers could let gamers decide who they want to play against: the slower gamers on controllers, or the precise-aimers on keyboard and mice.

Xbox CVP Mike Ybarra discussed about the mouse and keyboard inputs during a panel at PAX west, ensuring that Microsoft is taking particular care about when to bring those inputs to Xbox functionality.

Major Pipeline shuts down due to Hurricane Harvey
The average price of regular in Texas today is $2.25, up four cents from yesterday and 11 cents higher than before Harvey hit. The Colonial shutdown may cause more of a ripple effect and spark higher price increases in some areas, DeHaan said.

Microsoft and Sony are also rumored to be in talks to enable cross play for their consoles - which means that gamers will be able to compete with one another immaterial of whether they're playing that game on Xbox or PlayStation and this will result in a more competitive gaming scene. There may be a clash between keyboard and mouse Vs controller only playlists, it could cut player pools into pieces, reducing the matchmaking speeds. A lot of people tweet me and say 'you can't do this because of fairness, ' and we understand that. He was quoted as saying that keyboard and mouse support was "definitely coming". He emphasized that once a keyboard and mouse support is added to Xbox One, Microsoft would "coach" developers about the best practices. He certainly has a point, and it's very likely that Xbox One S will remain the best-selling Xbox One model in the years to come.

"You'll see our first games supporting keyboard and mouse soon", Ybarra said. Whether it's some additional work developers will want to put in is one thing, but Microsoft will need to really make sure that these two drastically different ways to play won't interfere with fair online competition. It's also quite interesting that this is seemingly a voluntary option, meaning gamers may still be able to play with mouse and keyboard users for the extra challenge.
