Modders have managed to unlock mouse and keyboard support on Xbox One - as well as the use of pretty much any other kind of controller.

The video below shows DualShock 3 and 4 pads, a Wii Pro Controller, and a mouse and keyboard being used to control Xbox One launch titles Killer Instinct and Call of Duty: Ghosts.

It's made possible via the latest version of the CronusMAX mod, which is now compatible with Xbox One consoles.

"This is perfect for those who love their old 360 controllers, or had a real expensive modded 360 controller and now don't have to worry about buying another," modding outfit Team Xecutor explained. "Or want that extra edge by playing with a keyboard and mouse."

It goes without saying that modding your console is a risky business and instantly invalidates any warranty. It can also give players a sneaky natural advantage when using alternative controller types. Tut.

Goddamn... If ypu can use a 360 pad, why not a stick ?

Edit. Yeah in the video he uses an old stick too. Does this device add some sort of lag?

All I can think about is how KB&M users will dominate in MP shooters on Xbone. Hope this won't happen.

Is it true support or just emulation? Devices that claim to translate KB+M to consoles have generally been pretty bad in the past.

So is it a program on a PC emulating the signals of a Xone controller, or is there some deeper modification of the console ? They're talking about invalidating warranty, so I suppose there's some action required on the console itself.

Huh, 'unlock' is an odd way to phrase it. Implies the functionality was already there and locked away, I'm guessing that's not actually the case?

It translates the keys and keyboard to XB1 input, so it's just the same as the old mods (EG not great for KB+M support).

The biggest thing this opens up is fighting game cheating as it has macros and rapid fire mods for those one button combos.

This isn't a Xbox One mod, this is a controller addon that takes a variety of USB pads as inputs and converts it so as to fake an Xbox One controller.

This is still great news though, but it needs to be lagless for it to actually be worthwhile. I can see a lot of fighting game fans picking this up if so.

Don't go getting ahead of yourself. It's likely due to the devkit options.

There is no console mod involved here. It's a peripheral device that converts other controller actions to XB1 button actions.

No actual console modding is involved here.

That's actually really cool, though I suspect there'll be some console bans being handed out in the wake of this. Still, it'd be nice to at least allow various controllers in all games and keep M&KB around for OS/app stuff.

EDIT: Ah, nevermind about the OS thing, looks like it's basically just a sort of hardware controller emulator thingy. Still cool though.

Cronus doesn't have a great rep in the fighting game community, fwiw. I know some specific models of their converter dongles have been banned at tournaments because they cause input drops on the other player's controller.

It shouldn't give games 'pure' mouse controls, just an inexact mapping. You'll probably be okay.

Just because you can connect a controller it doesn't mean the game works well with it, as shown by a multitude of "play FPS on console with mouse/keyboard" devices last gen. However, I assume this is interesting for people wanting to experience the console with other controllers.
