Did we get an announcement about today about the Razor Keyboard and Mouse for Xbox?

Yes, but full info will be at CES next year. They said the keyboard will feature adaptive lighting. I.e it could show health bar lights, Red lights to show team mate needs reviving etc.

By that time we should have a really good amount of games that will support it.

Glad to see Vigor on there, makes my hopes of ARMA on consoles just a little more probable. Again though I have reason to believe the next Xbox will be fully capable of running PC games.

Another great MS inovation for gamers.

I honestly wasn't expecting that much support out the gate. And some big names there...good job Microsoft.

I could have swore that Fortnite already had KB&M support on Xbox

Why would ms want to ruin their multiplayer games for people who don't want this? One of the advantages of console gaming is that nobody has keyboard and mouse.

Options? Just play on a controller only server if you want. Fortnite for example will automatically matchmake based on your input device.

Uh have you watched the reveal? They stated again and again (especially Fortnite announcement) that there are different servers for both the controller and Mouse+keyboard. The system will choose for you depending on what input you are using, you can't exactly choose whatever you want.

Ah so splitting the player base so there less people to play against? Great. There is obviously already a shortage of people hence the massive push for cross play and now this.

King_Noctis35d ago

There are no shortage of people to play with on X1 as well as on PC with crossplay. Also, how is giving choice a bad thing now?

Imortus_san35d ago

Mobile vs Consoles VS PC is on, so, what the problem.

King_Noctis35d ago

I feel like we gonna see Age of Empire announcement for the X1 at E3 next year.

Imortus_san35d ago

I guess Xbox wil again be the queen of RTS games just like the X360.
