The fall update has been rolled out for Xbox One console with a completely new dashboard, new ways to pin content, 1080p HDR streaming and many more features to look forward to.
The team at Microsoft are already gearing up for the next alpha update which will bring support for mouse in the Xbox One console. Hardcore PC gamers who spend a lot in expensive peripherals like a gaming mouse would appreciate this addition.
Instead of playing Halo 5 Guardians and Minecraft using the controller, you may soon be able to use a mouse and take down opponents easily in multiplayer matches. However, mouse support is extremely limited as it is supported only by Minecraft so far and developers are free to decide whether they need it in their game or not.
Apart from this, Xbox One’s next update will also receive original Xbox backwards compatibility, gifting games to friends and new Avatars to spice up the colourful interface. The mouse menu will be added to the Kinect & devices page with the option to adjust the pointer speed as required.
For co-operative and single player titles, mouse will be available to use any time in supported games whereas in multiplayer you can only join servers and take part so that you don’t end up smashing controller players in competitive multiplayer matches.
