Every time someone mentions that consoles should support both keyboard and mouse there is a SEGA Dreamcast that dies somewhere around the world. Since SEGA’s little console that unfortunately couldn’t, we never saw keyboard and mouse being supported on consoles ever again (other than basic browser functions). For a good few years now there have been rumours that the Xbox One will support it, with even Phil Spencer getting in on the act in the past. Now it seems this new feature is closer to reality than it’s ever been.
Thanks to Microsoft in Poland a press release went live on their site ahead of schedule and has since been pulled. Thankfully Gamepros was there to capture the leak. Here is what it says:
“Some players prefer to conquer the virtual world with a pad in hand. Others, above all, value the precision of the mouse movements. Others, however, can not imagine playing on anything other than a keyboard. Now, owners of Xbox One consoles (including Xbox One S models and the latest Xbox One X) can choose these accessories and decide for themselves what they will use. “PC Master Race”? Thanks to the keyboard support, we can already successfully talk about “Xbox Master Race”!”
