And what will there be to stop people devoloping cracks for the xbox games that you can play on pc, the same as they do now for pc games?

When people talk about console "aim assist" what are they referring too exactly?

I played consoles for years before I played PC games and I didn't (and still haven't) noticed any real difference in aiming aside from the obvious controller vs mouse.

In GTA I know there is an auto-aim sort of thing but in CoD, Halo, Battlefield, ect. what are you guys talking about?

It's not like the game points to their head for you. If anything I think there might just be slightly larger hitboxes on the console.

It's usually much larger hit boxes, some game your view will center for a few seconds on an ennemy when it comes near you (sometimes it helps, sometimes it can get you killed), other times if your aiming for an ennemy and follow him around it's like the game is helping you tracking the guy a bit, but of course PC elitists make it sounds like games have some sort of auto headshot mechanisms.

Console games with mouse and keyboard? Yes please. The low resolution and mediocre graphics I can stand, plus AA & AF through drivers will help.

this whole cross platform xbox vs pc threads always make me laugh, or that people turn random threads into that. let me just throw this out there...they have done many trials and tried a variety of different games and honestly the pc will come out on top most of the time, simply being that the technology is much better, its designed for that.....high dpi gaming mouse, gaming keyboard (no ghosting).....better performance then a standard 360 controller.....now that being said the auto aim issue....its not really auto aim, i use to play a lot of halo with my roomates (just the multiplayer) and you can def tell that its there but its not instant headshots every single time...but i will tell you this...it is def a handicap....

they did the halo pc vs xbox years ago and i remember the pc DESTROYED the xbox guys who were bragging up and down about it....and when they lost they would say things like "well you have high dpi mice! and its unfair!" and yet all the time i hear xbox fanboys bragging about how they can beat the tar out of a pc gamer in any game...yet pro level gamers got destroyed.....and you tell me you think you can compete with that? honestly...stop kidding yourselves...

before anyone says it, no im not saying im "the all mighty amazing FPS pc gaming god" by any means...i play for fun, and if someone is better then me well thats awesome....but to me its a game....and i play for fun. Years ago i use to play in the higher rankings of CSS in CAL and was as high as a CAL-I before CAL's league was taken down...i use to be very good at CSS and was called a hacker before.....simply becuase someone was getting beat by me..and i laugh...

That being said going abck to the ability to play xbox games on my pc, that could be ok...although i wont go through with it becuase im not paying to play the games i spent 60 dollars on already...thanks....some of them might be worth it though, i was always a fan of Forza

Seems quite unlikely but if true, no matter if it's exaggerated, that's quite unfortunate. Never heard of hand injury from gaming itself.
here's a few articles... its not uncommon.

Side note: Please understand what makes an FPS player great, its not the input device, its the reaction time.

EDIT: The precision gained from the mouse is not better then a controller with aim assist.
QFT who ever can get the best reaction time with their preffered device, they will win.

When i play on the controller, i get destroyed.

It is also true i have never tried to stick with console gaming except for single play on exclusives

There are enormous differences. If you want an example of a game released on both platforms, take UT3.

Console version has:

- Hitboxes 3 times the size of PC.
- Gameplay 20% slower than PC.
- Aim assist.

If that doesn't indicate how inferior analog sticks are for aiming a reticule, I don't know what would.

You could always force pc users to buy an xbox 360 controller to play, negating any advantages.
