Using your Cortana or Alexa, you can now control your console with new commands.

Mouse and Keyboard Support for Xbox One: With support for mouse and keyboard, developers can now choose how mouse and keyboard input will be designed for their games.

Xbox One owners have been sleeping easy with the knowledge that mouse and keyboard support is coming to their favorite console.

External drives are the only way to expand your Xbox One storage capacity as it doesn't support internal HDD upgrades in the same way as the PS4 consoles.


Also announced for Xbox Game Pass: Crackdown 3. It seems that Spencer is also aware of the issues, promising to fix the concerns. The peripheral maker bought a capture card company named Elgato in June, and now it's saying that "Mixer broadcasters will be empowered to improve their streams through integration with the powerful and versatile Elgato Stream Deck, along with other exciting initiatives currently in development". The Xbox Wireless Controller will be $10 cheaper from November 22-26, and that includes Xbox Design Lab.

PlayStation 4 users don't have this option yet, although can use a simulated method for Fortnite on PS4, or alternatively buy third-party hardware to enable the use of mouse and keyboard. Microsoft has already made Fortnite, Warframe and Minecraft compatible. Microsoft also said it planned to acquire two small game development studios - Obsidian Entertainment and inXile Entertainment.

Razer's fancy upcoming keyboard and mouse combo for the system won't be available until 2019 so keep your eyes open for that.

However, we suspect things will vary based on title. And while some Xbox players may worry about going up against players using different inputs, Epic assured players that they will only play against others with the same input devices.
