I just read that the Xbox One is going to support mice and keyboards. Personally, I am very pleased by this decision, because I’m sure that it will make a whole bunch of genres more interesting for console gamers - such as point & click adventure games.
What do you think about it?
Personally, I wonder if TWP will take advantage of this new feature, because it might need a complete playtest cycle, which would cost money. Nonetheless, it would make sense in terms of playability.
Well, shooters and strategy games will take even more advantage of this. However, the lack of a mouse has been one of the reasons why most point & click games were not even released on console. Seeing that consoles have become more popular over the recent decades, this had to be changed.
I never played Maniac Mansion on NES, but Super Monkey Island was really neat. If the SNES had supported mice, I would have owned a SNES console, Super Monkey Island and Super Maniac Mansion Land back in the 90s!
