From my point of view, I do not think you can play games with keyboard and mouse on the 360. Although you can use the keyboard to send messages by plugging it to the USB port on your 360 instead of button mashing each word using your controller.

Well first off you can buy XFPS which is adapter that lets you connect your PS controller, Mouse and Keybooard. But i have news for you the mouse has really feels werid o.O, but the PS controller is great also the keyboard is great customizing basiclly any key. Heres a link of XFPS being tested : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqDHmM8a0Eg

This is true and anyone trying to say otherwise is just mad and jelouse of the people wanting to use M/K. Both controller and M/K are very usefull tools.

This is how it works, you plug the xfps into your 360 using a usb port, no problem. you connect your wired controller to the xfps's first usb port. Then you choose mouse + keybaord or ps2 controller, plug either choice in. Turn on the 360 from the controller (hold down xbox button) and you need to map your stuff and all that but since your using a wireless controller to connect it to it, and you are running it through the xfps, if your wireless controller were to be sitting close to you, you could use your mic. If you have wireless mic you could definetly use it.

I wish they made the split fish frag fx for 360.

you cant. sorry. If it was simply that easy to get the accuracy of a mouse, no one would use a joystick on the 360. The "mouse" only emulates tilt direction so youd have to move the mouse to the original position to stop the tilt speed. Its not just aiming.

if you want mouse and keyboard so badly use your PC the 360 is designed for controller use for a reason

Its just not right to play with M/K on the 360.. It totally unbalances the console gaming experience..

You can also use the XIM3; http://xim3.com/?page_id=182 And no, you really can not be banned, if you think, FF online was playable with a mouse and keyboard by just plugging it into the USB ports, I am thinking of buying once myself. Hope this helps. JonJon.
