Xbox One games with mouse and keyboard support coming soon

Xbox One X

We'll leave it a lot up to developer choice. However, it still remains to be seen how developers implement this, and how it would impact console gaming in general once it arrives. As you can see in the screenshot below, the option to enable a screensaver on the console is available on the Preferences page.

This time around, however, they're going to take a slightly different approach.

Greenberg then talked about a newly-announced partnership with Samsung, and the TV manufacturer is going to be promoting Xbox One X "everywhere they go", including their ads.

The console brings a range of improvements upon the standard Xbox One, mostly visual, with the promise of running "enhanced" games as high as 4K resolution and 60 frames per second (FPS).

PC gamers have long enjoyed the competitive advantage that a keyboard and mouse afford.

Because we know that gifting isn't 'far off, ' it's safe to say that the feature is the one coming sooner rather than later. 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. Also, support won't be mandatory.

Minecrafts "Better together" beta already support mouse and key board inputs to some extent liable to Universal windows platform (UWP) API s that is accessable to all Windows 10 devices. Ybarra says that's "based on developer interest".

"Keyboard and mouse support is definitely coming", Ybarra said during the panel. Mr Ybarra reassured console players that there would be functionality, allowing them to choose whether to choose their opponents.

Microsoft already pits controller players versus keyboard and mouse players in Gears of War 4 via cross-platform play, but keyboard and mouse players are now restricted to PC. Feel free to sound off in the comments section below!
