Mark Rein have confirmed today that, the PS3 version of Unreal Tournament 2003 will support keyboard and Mouse. He is confident that it will be balanced and it won't feel gimped.
Awesome! Even though I will not be getting for the PS3 (the PC version FTW!!) I am SUPER happy about the PS3 supporting a keyboard and mouse setup. Now if I can just get microsoft to pull their heads out of their asses and support K&M for games like Command and Conquer I will be a very happy man.
Very nice, that would be funny if Sony re-released the playstation mouse
haha i remember that thing...I was like 12 when I got my first PS a little after it launched...and i thought it was awesome that it had a available mouse (the picture was on the box)... didn't only one game use that thing? I thought it was some kind of music thing, and you needed the mouse to do something...a friend of mine actually bought that thing, and needless to say he was a bit upset at the fact that it did...well...absolutely nothing...
Unreal Tournament 2003?
Well when you steal a story someone else tipped it happens.
Yea I thought it was PSN release for a second.
So doesn't really mean squat to me. Nice to see the support though I guess. MS really needs to open up and allow people to use a Mouse(they already support keyboard) so they have that option as well. MS is concerned about balance, yet Sony seems to take a who cares approach and leaves it up to the devs. For Shadowrun on the 360 the PC players get their ass handed too them more so than not and complain that keyboard people have to be gimped. Expect a ton of complaints and low review scores if that balance isn't perfect.
I don't really like Mouse and Keyboard either but alot of people do and they let you turn the option off where you dont' have to play with someone using a K/M....way to go Sony for giving options to your fans
a "who cares approach"...haha... So you think that MS is taking a "concern about balance" approach with their hardware?...by changing standard protocols for PC accessories, despite using a USB 2.0 connection...So people look at a 360, and read the specs, and say "2 USB ports...awesome"...only to find out that basically nothing without the Xbox logo on it works with the console... Epic said that the function of the keyboard and mouse could be turned off on the PS3...so if you only want to play people with a controller...you can...if you only want to play people with M/K...you can... This game gets some really funny reactions from the xbox crowd...First it was "Epic stabbed us in the back"...then it was "well we don't really care about user generated content anyway...XBL rulez...lets go get drunk..."...and now its "We don't like using a K/M"...never admitting that all of these features at least do not hurt the game...if this stuff was also coming to the 360, people wouldn't be like "that sucks...I am not buying it now"
Im loving this game more and more everytime i hear about it and i was excited when i seen the first screen shot of it...
The only way I would've consider this game was if they supported mouse and keyboard. This game is way too fast to be played with analogs IMO, besides FPS's always feel much better with M&K.
If Mark Rein confirmed it please post the original source.
I have to agree, the page even has a latin filler text as "about us" text, its a hacked together piece of webdesign atrocity. Therefor i have added the original source for you.
When I posted the original tip - which has mysteriously been deleted, I referenced Mark's post on the official forums. He said it.
Seems that there is a bunch of people in the works from that site removing/hiding tips on a daily basis. Someone needs to report them.
This news makes me happy, but everytime i look at my PS3, it makes me happier.
I have to say playing FPS with mouse and keyboard is plain weak.
Can't wait to use the Splitfish Frag Fx for the PS3 for this game.
I would just go for the PC version if I wanted those controls.
Because Keyboard and Mouse is the CORRECT way to play fps games. Once you try it my son, you will never go back to retard mode.
Im glad devs are finally giving players options that suit their preference. Although if this keeps up my purchase of the frag fx would have been for nothing. But i do love the damn thing.
Awesome. This is great news. This game will rock even more.
Well, I rather use the FragFx which seems a lot easier to use in a couch.
