One of the key features of Windows 10 is the ability to sync it to everything else you own that’s Microsoft-related. That’s one of the big reasons behind the re-branding of various Xbox services to something a little more generic than Xbox Music or whatever. Microsoft wants you to use it everywhere, not just on your video game console. Also, they want you to be able to play your games wherever you might be, too, be they on your Xbox or your PC. In order to facilitate cross-platform gaming, Xbox will be adding keyboard and mouse support in the near future.
The goal is cross platform gaming. That means playing your PC games on your Xbox, and if you have a fast enough computer, playing your Xbox games on your computer. That’s where the keyboard support comes in. After all, the reason why PC gaming is so much more easy than console gaming is the ease of play offered up by mouse and keyboard. You can just control things better, more accurately, and it’d be nice to bring that sort of prowess to console gaming, too.
Of course, that would require some great games for Xbox One and some serious support from the PC developers. That all might take a bite out of multiple sales or cross-platform sales, but maybe Microsoft will make it worth their while?Technorati Tags: pc on xbox one, playing pc games on xbox one, video games, Xbox, xbox keyboard and mouse, xbox one, xbox one adding keyboard and mouse support
