[GR] Sony Announces Mouse and Keyboard Controller for PS3 - Page 8

That being said, it is still 10x better than using a pad.
The fact that Sony has to support individual games leads me to believe that this may be more than just a simple conversion process.

As was stated earlier in the thread, the PS3 can use a keyboard and mouse just fine. It's the games themselves that don't support them. So your are stuck with the "pseudo mouse" controller conversions, because up till this point only 1 game has ever supported an actual k/m.

So lets hope this means Sony will force the developers to utilize the k/m for all future games.

I will actually give +REP to Sony.

A very brave move by them, and now we can finally see (pound per pound) what is superior despite "advantage criticism."

This news should hopefully (but I'm not holding my breath) be like a bucket of cold water splashed on the heads of the angry controller evangelists. It's okay, you can stop hating a control scheme that is scientifically superior in the majority of games. I finished super meat boy with a controller and it was easier because you could control your movement speed. Since then it's been gathering dust.

WOW, way too expensive. I might get one if it is $50 more or less.

Actually it was. The PS2 (Mar 4th 2000) wasn't released until 15 months after the Dreamcast (Nov 27th 1998) was released.

I agree. They could have rebranded the Logitech G35 or something.

$127 is a bit much though for most people
LOL I could buy a nice mechanical keyboard for that price. And this isn't even a full keyboard.

console players will freak out and demand it be nerfed to oblivion; it would give way too much of an advantage in shooters.
