Get a free game with selected Xbox One S bundles this week

Xbox Director of Programming Major Nelson and Xbox Platform CVP Mike Ybarra talked about game gifting and wishlists in a conversation at PAX West. Some cross-platform games, particularly tied in with Microsoft's Play Anywhere initiative, already face off keyboard and mouse users against those using controllers.

With the Xbox One X offering unprecedented visual fidelity for console gaming fans, many early adopters will be thinking about snapping up a new TV to truly make the most of those native 4K HDR experiences. I can't announce what it is but very soon.

One may think bringing the peripheral support to the Xbox One was easy, and it may be in theory, but in reality it far from that.


Microsoft says, however, that support won't be mandatory. Still, he said that Microsoft would let the developers decide whether to implement a support for a PC control scheme. In this respect, players will be able to choose whether to play against "keyboard and mouse people" or "controller people" so that any imbalances are kept to the minimum. "So, when we bring keyboard and mouse we'll coach developers". The company is simply opening up the functionality. There may be a clash between keyboard and mouse Vs controller only playlists, it could cut player pools into pieces, reducing the matchmaking speeds. The team is asked about the status of both wishlists & game gifting. While "Xbox One X Enhanced" games don't guarantee these improvements, they're more likely with the full power of the console.

Finally, Greenberg referred to the recent announcement of the alliance between Xbox and Samsung where the Korean company will promote the new console of Microsoft everywhere, including its different types of announcements and commercial for various media. The latter arrives for consoles in two days' time (September 6th).
