Words of Phil Spencer, Microsoft's VP of gaming, about XBOX K&M

“There are some games out there that require mouse and keyboard and those can’t come to console today”
“If we put this capability in the hands of developers, we’ll get more of those games.”


I like it. If cross platform is going to give us more RTS and similar games then do it, plus it will multiply the player base. I think having such games on console also eliminates the hardware restrictions for many budget minded users. Graphic cards and PCs are definitely more expensive than getting a console once.
