Samsung and Microsoft have launched an exclusive marketing and retail partnership tying the former's QLED TVs sets as the flawless partner for the upcoming Xbox One X, which will include ultra-high definition 4K capabilities. You can see the full list of the games already ready for the "Xbox One X Enhanced" indication on it's post on Windows Central. And with occasional flash deals like this, it's no surprise.

Speaking at this year's PAX West, Ybarra reiterated that "keyboard and mouse support is defintely coming".

Now available bundles include the 1TB Forza Horizon 3 and Halo Wars 2 bundles, and the just released 500GB Madden NFL 18 pack.

Participating retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Microsoft Store, Target, GameStop, and everyone's favourite, Walmart.

Ybarra said: "We have to be very smart in how we do that".

So a lot of people they tweet me and they say that you can't do this because of fairness; and we understand that we run two platforms - Windows and Xbox.

Kenyatta and Kenyan judiciary trade accusations as tensions build
Mr Kenyatta, 55, added: "We are ready to go back again to the people with the same agenda that we delivered to the people". Mr Kenyatta argued that the results of MPs, senators and governors were transmitted and "no one asked any questions".

Because we know that gifting isn't 'far off, ' it's safe to say that the feature is the one coming sooner rather than later.

Xbox One players have for the longest time been asking Microsoft to bring support for mouse and keyboard controls, and finally that functionality is getting closer to reality.

"Say you need to take a look at your multi-player pools".

Mouse and keyboard users have an accuracy advantage in first-person shooter titles, and gamers will be able to choose who they play against to avoid this imbalance. I can't announce what it is but very soon. But the "fairness" issue is definitely one that will have to be addressed in some way shape or form, so it'll be interesting to see how they tackle that, going forward.

Microsoft already pits controller players versus keyboard and mouse players in Gears of War 4 via cross-platform play, but keyboard and mouse players are now restricted to PC.
