Speaking at a PAX West panel this weekend, Ybarra said keyboard and mouse support is "definitely coming," adding that he's aware of the concerns people have about keyboard and mouse users having the upper hand against people using a controller.
- Mouse and Keyboard support coming
- Will be up to developers how its implemented
- Microsoft sees MP having separate queues for M/K vs Controller.
After playing some CoD WW2 beta this weekend and having to use a controller it really reminded how terrible controllers are and how nice it would be for gaming to include Keyboard and Mouse control support on $300 consoles. Even poor people deserve precision aiming! This would also open up whole genres of PC games to move to the living room.
Total War Medieval 3, Starcraft 3, Civilization 7... all possible XBox console exclusives with mouse and keyboard support.
