UT3 proves it will be done, and those who want to play with a gamepad can still enjoy the game. so is there any reason not to?

mouse + keyboard + ut3 + HDTV = heaven

I don't want games only on consoles (killzone 2, resistance 2) to offer keyboard/mouse support. Only PC/PS3 (or PS3/360/PC) to offer it (half life episode 2, call of duty 4, UT3, enemy territores: quake wars).

I agree - many of us have been waiting a long time for this to take place. The superior controls of a KB/MS with the ease of use of the console is going to be SWEET!!! :)

That being said - I think it should be done for all games the way EPIC is doing UT3 - where there will be seperate lobby's for gamepad players and KB/MS players. That's the only way it would be fair - is to match people up using the same input devices - otherwise the gamepad players will be slaughtered and get frustrated - which in turn will make the console lose part of it's fan base over time.

RTS and FPS should support KB+M, but when playing online there should be options to choose just to play against Gamepad users or just KB+M users or a mix of both.

No they shouldnt!!!! If you want mouse and keyboard go play on a computer. Consoles should only have controllersmfarris2006

Stop being narrow minded.

K+M should have been a supported since day 1, it's 2007 for crying out loud. It took apple 15+ years before caving in to releasing a mouse with 2+ buttons.

If you want to play on ur controller then so be it. It's not like they're forcing you to use K+M.

Well the PS3 has more processing power than any current PC CPU available to the consumer market - there are no 6 core cpu's available. Graphically the PC will be able to maintain an advantage due to upgrade-ability. And in fact other areas such as storage - cooling - and memory can be upgraded regularly giving the PC an advantage too. But that get's expensive year after year.

Most people can't afford the luxury of $2k to $4k that it takes to stay on the cutting edge of the PC Enthusiast market every year. So this allows gamers to have near enthusiast performance - with the luxury and advantages of a KB/MS without dropping the huge sum of money to be a high end PC gamer.

And I wish people would quit saying - you can get a PC for $500 now - because you're right you can if you want to use it for web browsing. There is no way to get a "legitimate" gaming rig for under a $1000 and that's at the low end. If you think otherwise - then you're not in the group of Enthusiasts that I am refering to. Most my friends and I as I said spend anywhere from $2000 to $4000 a year on hardware upgrades - and most people just can't do that.

So bring on the KB/MS to all the consoles - AND LET THE PS3 LEAD THE WAY!!!

Why? There's alot of people who want to enjoy both console games like GoW and FPS's at the same time, but FPS's cant be enjoyed with a gamepad and GoW type of games isn't released for PC.

how can the ps3 even any console have amore powerful processor than a pc we gt 64bit games coming out this year and next year and some pcs that can run 64bit games proberly a small amount over the ps3's cost so you are getting a deal having a pc we might not be getting titles likeMGS and and FFXIII.

i can see some rather idiotic responses to this saying not to bring keyboard + mouse to consoles... but what the hell... don't tell other people how they should play a game.

i loved to watch resistance fall of man when someone was playing it... but trying to play it with the sixaxis was a nightmare... i was playing like i was mentally retarded... couldn't even walk straight.

yes I normally use my PC to play fps games and i play them online @ high levels of competition... but i see killzone 2 and want to be able to enjoy it the same as the next guy.

giving the chance to use mouse and keyboard is like bringing a whole new market of gamers to the ps3.

just think of how many FPS's addicts would buy a PS3 just to play killzone 2 the way it should be played.

of course pad users could stay in their lobbies playing low skills :P

the only reason that UT3 is going to have it is cuz it will most likely support PS3-PC play so to not leave PS3 users at a disadvantage they implemented it to help those users out

as for other games i highly doubt they will start adding it for the fact that they probably will not waste time or put time in to make it cross platform with the PC

Couldn't even walk straight? Jeez man, just learn how to use a freaking controller. Apparently "pad users" aren't the ones with "low skills".

As for the topic - I don't see a problem with it as long as they have separate gaming rooms for each type of user.

I would love to see not only the ability to use keyboard mouse for the PS3 but I would love to have a mouse in my right hand for aiming and a controller in my left hand for movement. That way I get the best of both worlds. Better aiming with the mouse and better movement control with the stick. WASD is on/off, so you are either moving or not, whereas with the control stick I can control my movement speed.
