We’ll Be Getting Mouse And Keyboard Support For Xbox One Soon

Microsoft’s Xbox One will enable keyboard and mouse support for Warframe this coming weeks through the Xbox Insider Program.


[quote style=’1′ cite=” title=”]While most wired or wireless USB keyboards and mice will work on Xbox One, we know access to best-in-class hardware is a must. That’s why we’re partnering with a premiere peripheral manufacturer in the gaming hardware space – Razer – to bring you the best possible mouse and keyboard experience for this new functionality. We’ll have more to share soon on this partnership, but for now check out Razer’s website and our Xbox Twitter and Facebook pages for a sneak peek.[/quote]

[quote style=’1′ cite=” title=”]The first game to test the feature is going to be Warframe, the long-running free-to-play MMO, in October through the Xbox Insider Program. While the feature will be available for developers to implement in the near future, it is not a global decision that Microsoft is making for all of the games on its platform. Spencer emphasized that the idea is to open the Xbox One up to different experiences.[/quote]

Microsoft will make this feature available to developers, however, it is entirely up to the game developers to decide whether to include mouse and keyboard support for their games. Additionally, Microsoft did state that there’s no changes to existing titles at the moment. Mouse and keyboard input is still not enabled by default for games.
