Xbox One keyboard support is very close, mouse a bit later

It is a revelation that will most likely be met with both anticipation and dread, depending on which gaming side you're camping on. Playing with a keyboard and a mouse is coming really, really soon for the Xbox One. For PC gamers more used to those input controls, it is welcome news. For console gamers dreading the feared amalgamation of Microsoft's console and PC gaming worlds, it is yet another omen of that future. Of course for Microsoft, it just means being able to play Windows 10 games on any Microsoft-powered device, which ultimately means more profit for the company.

You can play Titanfall 2 “Beta” sooner than October

The release of Titanfall 2 will take place on the 28th of October, 2016. Before then, the folks at Respawn Entertainment and EA Games are launching the same sort of test they launched before the full drop of the game (the original Titanfall). That is a sort of Beta test, as you might want to call it, more properly termed a "Multiplayer Technical Test." While the final game will have a single-player mode in addition to the multiplayer mode Titanfall is known for, this will be a stress test of sorts - testing out the weight before the weight drops.

Xbox One S requires a USB adapter to use a Kinect

At E3 2016, Microsoft revealed the new Xbox One S that represents an incremental step forward for the company's console line, at least while waiting for Project Scorpio to take flesh. If the One S is indeed "the future", it might be a future with very few Kinects. That's because, in the process of shrinking the new console, Microsoft removed a few unnecessary parts, which happens to include the dedicated Kinect connection port. Users will have to ask Microsoft for a free USB adapter if ever they want to use the motion sensor with their newer and smaller console.

Microsoft earlier revealed the smaller but also better Xbox One S, which came with a new and improved Xbox Wireless Controller.

Taking a page out of the Moto Maker's book, Microsoft is opening the Xbox Design Lab, where buyers can customize almost every aspect of the controller they will be buying.

Project Scorpio official: Xbox One with better everything (and Oculus Rift)

This morning Microsoft introduced us to Project Scorpio, an Xbox console that they suggest will be more powerful than any console that's come before it.

That's true - but they're making a pretty big deal of the fact that they're making a machine that far exceeds the specs of the previous model - and the device they revealed in the interim - the Xbox One S.
