On Keyboard and Mouse support in First Person shooter games on the Playstation 3, SteelRush writes:
I see so many console junkies who don’t want to see mouse and keyboard because they know it affords and advantage. So following that logic, let’s take out steering wheel support for racing games, and joystick support for flight games, as they afford an unfair advantage.
All this crap about it requiring more skill to use a controller is simply that, crap. It’s a more difficult form of control for the genre. PC gaming is extremely expensive to keep up with, so quit telling PC gamers to stay on the PC unless you’d like to loan us $500 a year for upgrades.
All that is required to make EVERYONE happy, is to segregate the crowds online. It would let the PC migraters have their beloved control method, and would keep console junkies from getting owned. Maybe make it a server preference so there could be mixed and segregated servers. Offline, who cares how you control the game? Let people play how they want to play.
