Xbox One will soon play nice with keyboards and mice

Keyboard and mouse support for the Xbox would only include one connection at a time, as opposed to the ability to have multiple controllers connected to a single console.

Microsft has promised mouse and keyboard support for Xbox One. While it's unclear when Microsoft will roll out proper keyboard and mouse support for the console, a new report claims that the company is working with Razer on a partnership for these peripherals. The presentation reveals two keyboard brands, Razer Turret and Razer BlackWidow, that are specifically designed for the couch gaming. There are clunky ways to hack together keyboard and mouse support, but games aren't built with this capability. Developers will also be able to tell when users are playing with a keyboard and mouse versus a controller; if they want to separate out these gamers for multiplayer play, they will be able to do so.

The presentation in question saw the companies enabling Razer Chroma RGB lighting support on Xbox games, with Microsoft using the PC versions of games like Overwatch, DOTA 2, and others to show Razer's great lighting tech in games.

Furthermore, Microsoft noted that developers have to monitor how mouse and keyboard perform in matches against the players using the gamepad and make necessary adjustments to balance the gameplay experience.

The presentation noted that the mouse and keyboard support for the Xbox One would arrive with April update this Fall. Developers would be able to customize the visibility and appearance of the mouse pointer in Xbox One titles as well. Support for all USB-enabled mice that already work with Windows was also confirmed.
