actually i think this would be a great idea, i've spent alot of money on my pc, and sometimes i do wonder if its really worth all that extra cash over a xbox one or one x, i mean i pretty much just browse the net and play a few games. Could i really tell the difference in gfx quality if it wasnt a side by side comparison ??? I'm not so sure i could. I use an xbox controller for certain games on the PC anyway (rocket league, Fifa etc) but wouldn't dream of playing (Cod, Bf..., Pubg) with a controller. Hmmmm definitely something to think about, what do you guys and girls think ?
One of my biggest complaints with consoles and smart TV/"sticks" is the inability to use the wonderful interface of a keyboard and track pad. I would absolutely LOVE to be able to plug my Logitech right into my TV. I mean (technically) with screen cast you can 'kinda' get around it...but such an elegant control method. One of the reasons I STILL have an HTPC.....games well too.
"Microsoft's notes also point out keyboards and mice could affect balance on multiplayer games." Annnd yes. It's the better choice for player movement period. And it's no longer a console when you add keyboard and mouse – it's a COMPUTER.
Don't settle for less. Build your gaming PC today!
This is good news, but only if game makers support mouse/kb in the controls.
We've all had crappy console port controls on PC, and it is a disaster.
But if the game makers include proper mouse/kb controls and the ability to custom map controls to any key/mouse button, and display those controls in game (looking at you Dark Souls 3) this could seriously change my attitude towards console gaming.
