It has been just over two years now since Microsoft's Phil Spencer promised that mouse-and-keyboard support for the Xbox One was "not years away, it’s more like months away." Though that's a promise Microsoft has echoed a few times in the years since, thus far Minecraft is the only game on the platform with official support for the PC player's controller of choice.
Over the weekend, though, Windows Central got its hands on a purported internal Microsoft presentation from earlier in the year detailing plans for the impending rollout of robust mouse-and-keyboard support for the Xbox One.
The developer-focused presentation, which also integrates lessons from Razer's living room-focused lapboard peripheral, suggested an April API rollout to developers ahead of a planned fall announcement of support for players. It's unclear, though, if those plans have changed since the presentation was given (Microsoft did not respond to a request for comment Update: A Microsoft spokesperson told Ars Technica, "We are always exploring new ways to improve the Xbox experience, but have nothing further to share at this time").

Phone apps/games for example typically offer a storefront to purchase ingame currency for example; whether it's singleplayer or not, in such games, the aforementioned is not allowed.)
