Sony has today confirmed that the PS3 will support a keyboard and mouse for gameplay. George Bain, from PlayStation 3 developer support, announced at GDC Europe that gamers will be able to connect a keyboard and mouse to the PS3 and use them in place of the standard Bluetooth PS3 controllers. However, he qualified this by saying that developers have been instructed to support controller input for all PS3 game titles, and may choose to support keyboard and mouse gameplay also.
Keyboard, mouse, and PS3

The keyboard and mouse will connect to the Playstation 3 using one of the console’s six USB slots. The question many gamers are asking is whether they will be able to connect any USB keyboard or mouse to the games console, or whether the PS3 will support only authorised peripherals.

Regardless of the answer, gamers who enjoy first person shooter (FPS) and real time strategy (RTS) games will be grateful that the gaming skills they’ve honed through PC gameplay will translate directly to PS3 gaming. In fact, Sony’s decision to support keyboard and mouse input may be an attempt to capture a share of the PC gaming market. In line with this aim, Bain also revealed at GDC that the popular FPS title “Unreal Tournament 2007″ (currently under development for the PS3) will support keyboard and mouse input.
Looks like we will see keyboard and mouse soon for some games, who knows. Hopefully they add a server control for some online servers allowing you to play with JUST controllers, JUST K&M combo or mixed servers.

Yeah the PS3 does own. I bought one the day they came out and it works perfect, I managed to beat R:FoM, CoD:3, and M:UA within the first few days. I use it now mainly to play R:FoM online in those 40 person DM servers (WOAH!).

Basically the keyboard and mouse have to be on USB or they can be Bluetooth enabled wireless. I am not sure if you can just use any but chances are if you can't then there are only a select group of them that can be used with the PS3.

Personally I haven't tried yet but I had to take my PS3 back because I would rather have my new rig than a console any day...but if you got the PS3, you got a console that will stay #1 for a while.

me and my friend plugged a mouse and keyboard into his ps3, but they only worked in linux, not in the ps3 OS. maybe a firmware update will fix this.

Edit: we got the keyboard to work in the ps3 OS
