First Xbox games with keyboard and mouse gameplay support are coming soon

At PAX, Microsoft’s Mike Ybarra discussed mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One.

Mouse and keyboard support has been on the cards for quite a while, and it’s drawing ever closer. Minecraft’s “Better Together” beta already supports mouse and keyboard inputs to some degree, owing to Universal Windows Platform (UWP) APIs that function across all Windows 10 devices.

Xbox Platform CVP Mike Ybarra discussed mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One during a panel at PAX West this week, stating that Microsoft is taking particular care to ensure that developers are smart about when to allow the functionality.
