Xbox to get Keyboard and Mouse Support

Microsoft has paired up with Razer to release support for Xbox One to support keyboard and mouse gaming. We have all heard about it for sometime and many have been waiting on it. Tuesday Microsoft announced, via Xbox Wire, that the support for keyboard and mouse will be rolling out in the next few weeks.  They also let us know that not every game will be supported for this feature. The developer get to decide if their game will have this option.

“With this new input support at the platform level, developers can now build mouse and keyboard support in their games if and how they choose. It’s important to note that mouse and keyboard support for games is added on a title-by-title basis, entirely at developers’ discretion. For all other titles, nothing changes. Mouse and keyboard input is not enabled by default for games.” Says Microsoft.

This will change the way of gaming as we know in in the Xbox community, as it will allow for more competitive play. This will allow for higher accuracy, fast movements and other features with the keyboard and mouse. This also puts those at a disadvantage, whom can’t play on keyboard and mouse. This will also cross over to the PC territory and might bring some over to the console world.

Keep Going!
