    Mouse and keyboard support confirmed for Xbox One


    Microsoft has been working tirelessly to increase the capabilities of the Xbox One since launch. The console has sold well recently, according to the company's Q4 earnings report, likely as a result of cool new features, like backwards compatibility and game streaming to PCs running Windows 10. So why not add in at least one more nifty feature to boost the capabilities of the Xbox One?

    Confirmed through a short thread on Twitter, Phil Spencer says that the Xbox One is in line to support mouse input, allowing for both keyboard and mouse control on the company's gaming platform. The addition of a mouse on the Xbox One only seems fitting, given that the Xbox One is already running on PC hardware and a hybrid OS of Xbox/Windows.

    I want one even more now. I'd rather game with my trackball and gaming keyboard than a game controller. For FPS games like Halo anyway.

    different reason for me, but these changes to the one really make me want one
