Keyboard and mouse support coming to the Xbox One

In a response to a follower on Twitter, Phil Spencer suggests that keyboard and mouse support is coming to the Xbox One.

Currently the Xbox One does support the use of a keyboard, but for nothing more than text input.

It is not clear on how far the addition of a mouse will change how gamers can play on the Xbox One, and whether it will then allow cross-platform competition between PCs with Windows 10 the Xbox One.

What do you think? Are you happy to hear that Microsoft are implementing keyboard and mouse support, or do you think that should sit firmly with the PC crowd? Is this, along with the Elite Controller, a sign of a new age for Xbox as a more competitive console, or are you happy with the current control scheme?
