With Windows 10, Microsoft intends to entwine the Xbox One with the PC environment, raising a lot of questions, particularly weather or not the Xbox One will get keyboard and mouse support, as well as two-way game streaming with the PC.
Well, according to several tweets made by Xbox head Phil Spencer, everything is possible. When asked about the possibility of streaming games from PC to the Xbox One, he replied
“Still finishing Xbox to Win10 streaming right now. I like the idea of Win10->Xbox One streaming but don’t have a plan yet.”
Of course, for streaming to be possible, the console will need keyboard and mouse support, and Spencer says
that support is on its way:
“Yep, keyboard and mouse support for Xbox would need to be there for this to work, those aren’t far away.”
But as some of you probably know, the Xbox One already allows keyboards to be used but not a mouse, essentially making a keyboard useless for gaming purposes. Adding mouse support could potentially change how you play on the console in relation to a Windows 10 PC.
FPS games on the Xbox One, in particular, are the rage these days and will benefit from mouse and keyboard support. Halo, Call of Duty and Battlefield are better when played with a mouse and keyboard, right?
