Games on Xbox One Supporting Mouse and Keyboard Control

Share

At PAX this weekend in Seattle, Xbox's Mike Ybarra reaffirmed the company's commitment to making mouse and keyboard control schemes happen on the Xbox One, but stressed that implementation would be left up to developers.

Microsoft will ask developers to consider their multiplayer pools, bringing to mind the issue of fairness when it comes to those playing with a controller versus those playing with a keyboard and mouse.

For this reason, Microsoft would prefer that developers offer gamers the choice to play with opponents using the same controllers as them, thus erasing potential disadvantages.

"A lot of people tweet me and say "you can't do this" because of fairness", Ybarra admits. This news comes from a mixture of both Mike Ybarra (the Xbox Corporate Vice President) and our very own information, which helped us fill in a blank.

There is a buzz that the mouse and keyboard for Xbox are coming soon features for Xbox for a while.

Participants of the Xbox Insider program were recently treated to a Minecraft beta that added mouse and keyboard support to the mix.

"Keyboard and mouse support is definitely coming", said Ybarra, answering a fan question. A notable example of this is seen in Gears of War 4, however users of the former are still restricted to the Windows PC platform.

Xbox One X will be available on November 7 in the USA and will be priced at $499.

"You'll see our first games supporting keyboard and mouse soon", he continued, but was tight-lipped on what those games will be. I can't announce what it is but very soon.

"The arrival of true 4K UHD gameplay on Xbox One X this Fall gives gamers the ideal reason to upgrade their television", said Eddie Combs, VP of marketing for Samsung Electronics America. "And then based on developer interest, they'll choose to do keyboard and mouse going forward, or not".
