For a while now we have been hearing that Microsoft is looking to bring keyboard and mouse support to the Xbox One. The good news is that it looks like the wait could soon be over because in an announcement on its Xbox website, Microsoft has confirmed that support will be coming soon as well as a partnership with Razer.


If this sounds familiar, it is because a few months ago Microsoft revealed their Razer partnership during a presentation made to developers, but for those who aren’t developers or who simply missed the news, the good news is that it is now all official. Of course this doesn’t mean that you can’t use non-Razer devices, but clearly Microsoft and Razer are marketing their partnership as being “better” with the use of “best-in-class” hardware.

That being said, it should be noted that not all games will support keyboard and mouse input right out of the box. It will not be a feature that will be enabled for all titles by default, but rather it will be done on a title-to-title basis, so your mileage may vary depending on the games you play and whether or not your game’s developer chooses to support keyboard and mouse input.

It could still be a while before the feature is made available to the masses because according to Microsoft, the feature is only expected to arrive for select Insiders in the coming weeks, which means more testing before it is available to all, but we suppose better late than never, right?
