A short video clip which shows the XFPS 360 in action.
You can see how it works. Configurations Etc.
you hear that mr. anderson... that is the sound of inevitability
ahahaha. perfect time for that.
I think it is cool and all... and I could see getting it for texting and whatnot... but that is why I have my headset.
For text messaging etc. you can just attach any USB keyboard and mouse to the 360 I guess. I have an infrared keyboard/mouse combo with an USB infrared receiving device directly on the USB port and use it with text etc.
I'm guessing look speed is still mapped to the max analog stick speed. However mouse aiming is still much easier than an analog stick imo. Might be worth it for kicks.
I just wish microsoft would hurry and and release a dam HDMI cable,come on MS HDMI now
...because it basically turns a 360 into the cheapest PC gaming rig on the market. But, if you are into console gaming, and don't like the keyboard/mouse configuration (like myself), this is completely useless.
... but, as the video shows .... I hate the need to move my hand all over the keyboard to access grenades, smoke, jump, reload, etc, etc. I was always a PC games mouse and keyboard die hard, but one I got use to the controller, I LOVE THE FACT that all I need is at my fingertips without jumping around a keyboard. BUT ... hey, if it gets more PC games onto the 360 ... I wish it luck. And who know ... if they make it WIRELESS .... I may consider if the price is normal ..... MAYBE !!
imagine playing gears or halo 2 on live against someone with a keyboard and mouse... they can shoot and look faster, and aim better. i hope MS does something about this b/c these people have an advantage on ppl who use controllers. i can see this being the next stand-by and modding.
Ah well like said before the controller has all things on your fingertips. Smoke/normal granade, switch weapons you name it On the keyboard you have to switch the hand over the freaking thing which is stupid. I bet good controller gamers can handle the average keyboard gamer any day. And I bet the diehard PC gamers don't come on a gameconsole, but stick with their 2.000 dollar costing PC...
...make sure it is known to other Xbox Live gamers if someone is using a keyboard and or mouse to play. Obviously playing with a mouse and keyboard gives an advantage with regards to precision over the standard Xbox 360 controller. Maybe they should even ban the use of the keyboard/mouse from being used for multiplayer gaming on Xbox live to make sure it remains an even contest from a controller perspective.
