Many PC gamers find it rather difficult to adapt to aiming with a controller on consoles, and the Japanese manufacturer GameTech decided to help them out with a device named Tsunaident4 MAX.
Wow if I didnt have the XIM4 already I would opt for this.But its a good alternative who aren't looking to spend that much to use M/K on consoles.
I'm definitely interested, but I'm a bit iffy on the quality. Gametech's stuff is normally pretty good, but I never tried a device with this level of complexity from them. Normally they make USB/HDMI hubs, headsets, chargers, filters and such, so it's simpler stuff. How is the XIM4 quality-wise? I've been considering it for a while but the price kinds of puts me off.
Quality wise from my experience is pretty good.I've had mine stepped,sat on and thrown half way across my room against the wall and still survived xD.But yea the price can be an off put for a lot of people.But its still by far the best M/K translator for console IMO
This is Third Party though and will not be Native, this is not the right solution, either Sony/Microsoft comes out and supports Mouse/KB or they don't
Sony/PS4 supports mouse and keyboard already; last gen the PS3 also supported it. The problem however, is that it's up to devs to support it in their games and last gen, only Epic did with Unreal Tournament.
PS4 support kb/m, but is the developers choice to add the support to the game, like square did with ff14.
Umm...I've BEEN using mouse and keyboard on PS4 since launch. Like everyone above me has said, it's up to the devs to add that support for their games.
Right on toss the wrist ban to the other half she will buy you more games
* Vibrating Wristband sales are going to Skyrocket in February.
Mouse and keyboard that is all day at work for me. I will stick to the amazing controller. Hope it doesn't ruin online for me. It probably will.
i have a xim4. you STILL cant get a decent 1:1 on it, on fps. if people think they are going to get a fps pc experience on console, they are in for a disappointment, unless the devs remove acceleration from fps. especially long time pc gamers. they will notice it doesn't feel right at all.
XIM4? Hmmmm.... I should look into that. Would love to play FPS with Kb&M
Hopefully both consoles add this natively
MS already indicated they are working on this, but I don't think it is meant to work for all games. I would hate the imbalance that would cause. However, a carefully crafted experience for Mouse/Keyboard would be awesome especially for RTS. Would love to play Starcraft 2 on my Xbox One!
It would have to be a dedicated and informed effort. But doable. Especially with how "customer pleasing" Micro has been since X1' launch, chances are higher. One can hope!
I feel like the vibrating wristbrand will be....misused
I knew someone would have said this before long :D
I agree!! I was thinking if I bought this thing I'd carefully place the wristband by my fiancée while I'm playing a game to freak her out lol
Horrible idea. Keyboard and mouse players will destroy controller players. It will create inequality in fairness.
If you think that using a K/B&M automatically makes you a God like player you have a lot to learn kid.You're only as good as you're skill permits.Plus online play on consoles has never been "Equal" as people have been using modded,scuff etc controllers.
Seriously, try it. You will get destroyed. It's not about skill after a certain point, it's about which piece of equipment performs better, and it's not the controller when it comes to FPS games.
Kb and m have a higher skill cap than controller. End of discussion.
I do better with gamepad on PC, BF4 2.0 on gamepad as compared to a less consistent 0.5-1.5 on KBM. Maybe that's just me and I'm an exception though, I'm still only an average player with Keyboard/mouse
I got my 1st pc a few months back. And can say def there's an advantage over the controllers with k/m. I guess it's possible to be better with a controller. But you'd have to be really unfamiliar with k/m.
It depends on the game. FPS's do benefit from keyboard and mouse control, however action games can be more suited to a controller especially if the controller has a gyroscope such as the DS3 and DS4 and it is supported. It also must be noted that even the PS2 had games that supported keyboard and mouse, however if I remember correctly they were FPS's. If you like FPS's fine, however remember that not all gamers are keen on them.
i never got pc gamers but i always thought they were some of the weirdest ppl why the hell would you play with a mouse and keyboard when the controller is the best option and used in gaming y'all guys need to get with the times most ppl look at ppl who play modern games with a mouse and keyboard as weird which y'all really are no thank you ill be using a controller like the rest of the world.
And like the rest of the world, you will suck at FPS games. I honestly would dare you to challenge a 6 year old with KB/M against any of your console pros. The results will be hilarious,i've seen it first hand.
Are you serious? In an even-skilled matchup, a keyboard and mouse player will destroy someone using a controller. In fast paced FPS games you have so much more time to aim and shoot than a controller player does, probably the only thing the controller is better at is fluidly combining movement and aiming, and even that is mostly based on preference.
@Doodleburger I played CounterStrike GO competitive with a Dualshock 4 and I was rocking a 2.38 KD ratio. The mouse/kb should be used in tournaments and higher ranking events, but the controller can be used against anybody who's not a top 100 CS player.
I swear I used to think like that... Until I got used to M/K. FP games are so much better to play with M/K. Not saying you will be better or worse because that depends on skill, but I personally hate using my DS4 for FP games. 3rd person games I use the DS4 though.
-_- Troll= 💩
Rocket league is crossplay between PC and PS4, and I destroy PC players :) Tbh it depends on the game, PC Gamers will have a massive advantage in FPS games, but Console Gamers will have massive advantages in sports games
Not really. I'm playing rocket league with a controller on pc. So, If anything, I have a slight advantage cause of the better framerate and responsiveness.
nope. i use a m/k on console all the time. it's not a 1:1 experience, like on pc. console fps's have acceleration added to the controls. unless they remove it, you're going to have pc gamers complaining about how chitty m/k is on consoles. thats about it.
Look forward to play Sims on ps4 using this.
Ps4 supports MnK but the devs have to program it into the game.. Ff14 aar is an example i use KnM on my ps4
I'm assuming this won't be a valid control set up for FPS games? It would cause some SERIOUS imbalance. I'm pretty good with a dualshock but it's nothing like how I could aim back when I played CS/Doom/UT3.
Hopefully they'll be able to separate the two camps when in PvP.
All you really need is few weeks playing with the controller and the transaction will be pretty good. The more you play with the controller, the better will you adopt to it. I play with mk/controller on the PC depending on a game and honestly, it just takes little practice. ;)
Yeah sure, "vibrating wristband".
