In a conversation at PAX West, Xbox Director of Programming Major Nelson and Xbox Platform CVP Mike Ybarra discussed the timeline of game gifting and wishlists, stating vaguely that at least one of those is coming "very soon". Implementation, however, will largely depend on game developers, but the company already has an idea how to prevent player imbalance issues.
So you'll see our new Xbox with keyboard and mouse very soon. It's also quite interesting that this is seemingly a voluntary option, meaning gamers may still be able to play with mouse and keyboard users for the extra challenge.
Microsoft is going to coach developers as well as studios to ensure they add the feature, because there is the potential for problems with imbalance to take place.
Because we know that gifting isn't 'far off, ' it's safe to say that the feature is the one coming sooner rather than later.
Florida's defense picks 2 for TDs, then blocks punt against MI The lack of playmakers showed on offense for the Gators , as their quarterbacks were unable to sustain drives throughout the game. I credit McElwain for his willingness to speak honestly, but the coach needs to take a long look at himself in the mirror.
Mike Nichols, corporate VP and chief marketing officer for Xbox added: "Xbox One X will bring true 4K gaming to console players for the first time with 40 per cent more power than any other console". Which is a cross platform title, and I sincerely hope that they can properly balance the keyboard and mouse so those that are using the peripheral do not gain an unfair advantage over those who use a controller. That certainly sets up a thrilling "Team Gamepad vs. Team Mouse and Keyboard' rivalry". Also, support won't be mandatory.
Although the decision will ultimately be in the hands of the studios, Microsoft will be open to have full support for mouse and keyboard. Mr Ybarra reassured console players that there would be functionality, allowing them to choose whether to choose their opponents.
For now though the Redmond based giants are busy balancing the keyboard and mouse setup by crossplaying Gears Of War 4. Chime in with your thoughts in the comments section below.
