Developers 'Have the Choice' to Allow Xbox One Keyboard and Mouse Support

According to Microsoft's marketing manager Albert Penello, more backwards compatible Xbox 360 will be Xbox One X enhanced soon.

Besides the empowerment for users and developers that keyboard and mouse support brings, it's unlikely that Microsoft would want to block it given it's already said that it has plans to introduce official support. The decision comes after Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley increased the customs duty on imported gadgets from 10 percent to 20 percent in the 2018-19 Budget.

However, Xbox One and One S haven't had any support for 4K resolution games. Right now, 2560×1440 is a very popular resolution among high-end monitor buyers and is often seen as the "sweet spot" for PC gaming at high refresh rates. The Xbox One X is capable of supersampling images, so 4K games are downsampled cleverly to preserve extra detail when displayed on a Full HD TV.

It also boasts a massive 1 TB (1,024 GB) storage and 6.8GHz 12 GB GDDR5 RAM with 326 GB/s bandwidth, making it 40 percent more powerful than any other console in the market. Upon its launch, the Xbox One X was priced at Rs 44,990. Meanwhile, Tech Radar stated that the Xbox One S support on 1440p display is interesting since the console does not have 4K capabilities nor a supersampling feature. Many developers are leveraging the huge power of this console to create true 4K games but Microsoft also surprised fans by revealing that certain Xbox 360 titles will also be upgraded for the Xbox One X. Albert Penello, the marketing boss for Xbox consoles, reveals that more Xbox 360 titles will get upgraded for Xbox One X down the road. The company claims that it can be placed horizontally or vertically with an optional stand.
