Depends on how they go about it. Perhaps buying either version will allow you to use it digitally on either platform, maybe you can get a digital code for a PC version with a hard copy of a Xbox One version (Blu Rays already do this), with the trade off being a fixed price on both platforms.

The only way I could play on PC was to plug an Xbox 360 controller in and pretend it was a console.
This isn't really about that, but let's say for one second it may be under consideration. Gaming with another platform isn't tied to multiplayer versus games only. Think of co-operative games like Destiny, Borderlands 2, or even Warframe (which is going to the PS4). They would be an absolute blast to play with others across multiple platforms, with central stat tracking, matchmaking, etc, regardless of what control device they are using.

And to be quite frank, nothing is stopping anyone from using a keyboard and mouse on current generation consoles either whether natively supported (Unreal Tournament 3) or not (XIM).
