its going to suck for controller users, they will get their asses kicked all over the place.

Lol this is going to be awesome. Imagine getting on a server playing Halo 3 or Unreal as a keyboard mouse FPS player. All those joystick guys are going to be crying cheat all over the place.

Kidding a side this is great news. If they reall want to move gaming to consoles this is a big step. Still there are things about PC gaming that will be superior such as modding and just the sheer size of the online games you play.

Yeah, it does support mouse/keyboard right off the bat. Be kind of stupid for them not to include it, since it comes with USB ports as it is.

and since MS is pushing the 360 out with wireless controllers, i'm wondering how a wired mouse and keyboard will go over with the masses. i know that the main reason i won't play FPS on consoles is b/c of the lack of mouse/keyboard combo. which also makes me wonder if you could just hook up a standard wireless mouse/keyboard setup to the 360 and make it work. now i just gotta buy a coffee table to put the stuff on.

Well, even some PS2 games supported USB mice and keyboards. I know Red Faction 2 did, and because of that it is still my favorite PS2 game.

Felt nice to be able to play the game with a KB+M. I ripped through that game like you wouldn't believe. Really made it so much more enjoyable then any other console FPS.

Funny thing is, Killzone supported the Keyboard, but did not support any mice. Very strange.

FPS gamers with controllers could always be separated from keyboard/mouse users in online games. That way everyone would be on the same playing field. Honestly I don't get why any sane person wouldn't hook up a keyboard+mouse though...

I'm not saying it's gonna die, but mouse/keyboard were the reason alot of gamers wouldn't really get into the consoles.

Hmm I thought it was because consoles can only do a tiny fraction of the things that PCs can.

Wow, support for mouse and keyboard...
This really changes everything. A new day.
Probably the most revolutionary thing I have ever heard, that is, within the world of Gaming, not Politics.

mouse... and keyboard.... on a console... supported? I mean the major selling point for me with Xbox is Live, plus they have some nice exclusive games, but having a mouse and keyboard for both systems..... honestly really does make me wonder about PC gamings future.

I'm not saying it's gonna die, but mouse/keyboard were the reason alot of gamers wouldn't really get into the consoles.

Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.

Does anyone know if the 360 will also support USB mice and keyboards? I had been leaning towards the Microsquish machine, but if it doesn't I will probably wait for the PS3. Anyone know for sure?
