I'm hoping this and Move carry over to the next gen Playstation. It's a pretty high investment, but if it carries over, it would be well worth it.
xAlmostPro  +   1578d ago
Pricey.. but dont forget you can also use any usb/bluetooth mouse or keyboard :) the downfall is not many games have the control setting for them..

seems to me though that if they're making this they'll start pushing the control scheme for more games, which is a smart move at capturing some of the PC audience
egidem  +   1578d ago
$127 - that's too pricy, considering you can get hundreds, if not hundreds of thousands of K/M combo for less than that.
frostypants  +   1578d ago
Well, seeing as how the PS3 is already compatible with a normal keyboard and mouse (so long as the game supports it), which can both be had for under $40, this looks like a horrible rip-off.
evrfighter  +   1578d ago
I always said pc gamers would convert to consoles if it properly supported mouse and keyboard. that means ALL games

expect it to be this way next-gen though. I use xim on 360 and have the converter to use it on ps3. if this is just as responsive as a real pc mouse then a lot of mouse users are going to be extremely happy

isnt that how console gaming works. they sell the gamer an out dated box for 300usd. gamer thinks they got a deal, only to find out they need to through the nose for the games, accessories etc. its just how things are these companies need to rip people of to make profit and bare the cost of all those employees, adverts etc.
blumatt  +   1578d ago
I bet more games are going to start supporting KB/M. This might be Sony's way of easing PC players onto the PS3. Start them off with a familiar control scheme and then BAM! they're hooked on the PS3's stellar exclusive games. lol
decrypt  +   1578d ago

Why would a PC gamer like to:

Pay more per game,
for go mods,
settle for 25-30fps 720 low to med settings for most games.

Sure a PC player may get a PS3 for its exclusives, which to be honest only few are actually good this year i only see uncharted 3 as being a great exclusive(and thats only going to be an 8hour game) nothing else looks good. Now i know fans on this site are going to be list all the exclusives released this year however they arent for everyone. Most of Sony's exclusives are name sake and range from poor to average, its only fuel for the fanboy wars thats it.
blumatt  +   1578d ago
Wow. lol Didn't expect such an onslaught of disagrees for that one. I'm just saying that this offers PC players a way of playing that might be easier to get use to since it's closer to a real keyboard/mouse configuration. Then, later on they can pick up the DualShock and learn it too. Options are nice. I won't be buying it though cause the price is just a wee bit steep. I'd say price it at $60 just like the DualShock and that'd be the right price.

BattleAxe  +   1578d ago
Looks really good, although they need at least 1 or 2 more keys on the keyboard. I'm not sure whats up with the key in the "r" key location being round, but they should also have a key in the "alt" key location and the "ctrl" key location.

Some PC Elitists just can't accept the fact that consoles have started cutting into their gaming lineup./ffb.

I already own a RAT7 and a G13.... I'd rather just use the ones I already have. An update to accept keyboards and mouses should not be a huge update for most games.

Mouse and keyboard is a great idea but wont this divide up the community, even if 50% of PS3 gamers buy this there will still be so many playing with a disadvantage. Unless of course servers can be limited by control method. Everybody knows that 2 gamers of roughly equal skill, 1 playing with M/K and the other on a gamepad, M/K wins every time.

For the $ it better work better than eagle eye and when I mean better I mean perfect lol.
Drekken  +   1578d ago
Hopefully it works with all games. I have FragFX and FranNStien and both need work. Some games its pretty close to perfect, but never perfect. Other games its a sloppy mess.

If you can plug this in and achieve fluid motion up, down, left, and right while looking it might be worth it.... but where the hell is the rest of the keyboard. How dumb is that.

As of right now the Eagleye is the best option from what I've read.

Yeah the lack of an "r" key for reload is kind of bothersome. I'm so used to using that key that it would get me killed for some time before I would adjust.

They just need to get right of acceleration on the mouse, I've heard it (mouse) acts like an analog stick
Pjuice  +   1578d ago
yep controllers need acceleration, magnetism, snapping, and friction to aim better which would really make the mouse feel weird on console.
stevenhiggster  +   1577d ago
Yeah sometimes you get that problem even on PC games where it is just a straight console port.
Deus Ex: HR had really bad mouse acceleration on PC.
You can usually turn it off though so if they are gonna start pushing this thing then they'll get games made with it in mind and probably an option to turn acceleration off.

ATi_Elite  +   1578d ago
this is a great start for those who wanna use a KB/m but for $127 that's really way too much money!

Sony should just allow standard KB/m support so gamers can go out and get their own KB/M for way cheaper!

Next console Gen KB/m support will be standard.....I just hope the console makers do not force their gamers to buy over priced KB/M set-ups like this one shown!

For one, it's not even a proper keyboard. Other than that, if you want to use a keyboard, play on PC; it basically turns your console into a poor man's PC.

I really can't imagine a single person that should run out and buy this thing.

you can turn it off on pc because its an open system or a patch but allot of times you just go into config files and change it, i don't know if consoles will have any of these options in game because i doubt there's a huge market for this thing allot of gamers on here might like it but console is all about hooking into the masses if this doesn't sell a ton i doubt you will ever see good software support for it and i don't think it will sell a ton either i just can't see kids at retail stores screaming for a ps3 mouse to there mother. My personal opinion on the subject if you want a big boy machine to use don't try to get there half way either pc game or play with the kiddies, my xbox360 only gets dusted off when my nephews try playing on my gaming rig.

geth1gh  +   1578d ago
Nothing new. Yout have probably been in many games already with someone using a mouse and keyboard.

There have been multiple devices out there that let you hook them up to your ps3 or 360 for a while now and they (the companies) have done quite well for themselves.

So I don't see why sony wouldn't want to officially license their version.

As stated though, $130 for a 1/4th of a keyboard and a mouse seems way to damn expensive.

Assuming the baseball game is between friends, and everybody is allowed to bring their own equipment, then yes that's true.

Blaine  +   1578d ago

I don't like triggers or pedals on my controller. Both have way too much travel distance to be useful. Actually, for a gas pedal... the trigger shape would be good! Allow for more precise throttle. But you're right, the "pedal" shape is too slippery. And for shooters, I hate games that use R2 to shoot. Travel distance = delayed shot. R1 is much better for shooting.
Drekken  +   1578d ago

WildArmed  +   1578d ago
Yeah, since they basically converted the controller into a kb/m format. I don't think it's native Mouse/kb support.. having native mouse / kb support does add a big advantage. ( more buttons to map your keys too help a lot)

Idk, they shoulda added more keys like an actualy keyboard. I like switching weapons via 1-10.
I like having the sprint button be Shift, crouch be CTRL, etc.

But it's still cool they are catering to the PC crowd. Personally, I'm going to stick w/ the DS3.
Ashby_JC  +   1578d ago

I agree.

If you SUCK at shooters. Like a friend of mine...yeah you will only slightly improve you accuracy...not by much. His reflexes and reaction times are horrid so even with fragfx franken whatever or this..he is still crappy.


I disagree...

If you are GOOD at shooters...meaning good reflexes. Hand eye coordination etc. These devices ..ONCE you get used to them will help and give you an advantage.

It wont be a HUGE advantage...but an advantage none the same. That 1-2 seconds I can get my iron sights or reticule on you can make a big difference.

I myself am a average FPS gamer. I have games were im great and games were I suck. The fragfx...have it for the PS3 and just got one for the 360.

It hasnt made me a better player. But in certain situations I feel it has given me a HUGE advantage. Mainly the advantage is in being able to use the mouse to aim.

Everything else is the same. YOu the gamer still have to make smart decisions in games. It wont make you rambo lol. will be able to pick off targets faster then you can with the controller.

I can imagine someone with great reflexes etc really doing things with these devices that are amazing. As there are ppl who do amazing things with games with a controller I can never do myself :)

Why would want to dumb down another perfectly good franchise.

In order to bring present day Total war to the PS3 or Xbox 360, they would have to strip the game down considerably. There is just too much going on at one time to fit this on console.

Also we use so many hot keys to play this game. It would completely butcher the game to play with such less keys. You need a standard keyboard to play Total war, not the excuse of a board shown on that pic.

I saw the light a long time ago. I was never a PC gamer but was always curious as to how it would be to use a mouse to aim.

I felt that it would be better because when im on a just point and click with a mouse without thinking about it.

So using it for gaming FPS just made sense.

The first console that had mouse and KB support that I know of was ...DREAMCAST!!

I think it was DOOM or Quake...that I played with a mouse and KB.

Initially I was like this sucks LOL. Went back to the controller. But decided...go back and give it some more time. I was glad I did.

Once I got used to the mouse and KB I was thinking...this is awesome!! I can pull off things I could NEVER pull off with a controller.

Years other console adapted the use of mouse and KB. I guess one of the reasons is they want an even playing field for all gamers on FPS on consoles.

But this GEN you have at least some options to match that mouse and KB. I have owned 2 fragfx controllers. And I cant play FPS without them ..PERIOD!

I can imagine how bad it is for a PC gamer to try and play a console shooter with a controller.

this is a pay to win move by sony, this mouse and pad probably cost about 5 bucks to make at most. But regardless it'll make anyone with decent motor skills better then 90% of pad users.

BUT, what a joke of a gamepad, not only the cost, but the lack of buttons and then they put them in the worst layout possible. Hopefully 3rd parties come up with something better or i can just plug in a mouse and k/b in games that support this.

This device is a ripoff. Wake up and smell the scam. It's NOT a Sony product. Sony "licensed" means nothing other than Sony basically saying "sure, you can sell it with PS3 branding".

Technically, there's no need of "specially" built USB keyboard and mouse for PS3 to use in games if the developers choose to support it.

To date, only one PS3 game that supports USB keyboard and mouse which is Unreal Tournament 3. X360 version dropped the USB keyboard and mouse support because they worked too well like playing on the PC.

Developer's excuse is using keyboard/mouse in FPS makes it unfair for other online players that use game controller. But no one wants to say anything about using Move controller is unfair. When there is money to be made on specially made licensed controllers, no one wants to say anything about being "unfair".

How is Move unfair.Its very precise yes just like the mouse in fact.However since its being held its affected by the user heavily.Breathing can throw off your aim.The weight wears you down slowing you more an more as time goes on.It might have advantages but don't forget it has disadvantages also.
Vortex3D  +   1577d ago
"Its very precise yes just like the mouse in fact." That is what I was saying because developer's excuse not to support mouse on console is it's too "precise". Mouse also has its disadvantages.

My point was if mouse is considered unfair on console against gamepad on multiplayer, then Move should also be considered unfair against gamepad because both are very precise.
Ashby_JC  +   1578d ago
I could see it working easily. As I have been using the fragfx for the PS3 over the last year or so.

I just got the fragfx for the 360 and it is very smooth.

It wont make you a better player IMO but it will make your aiming more precise...such as head shots and lining up shots a few seconds faster.

Once you get used to using the fragfx or similar its HARD to go back to using a controller IMO.

This device looks interesting but the price is to high IMO. Also...with the fragfx and such u have a wii like dongle in your left hand for forward, back , l, r movement.

I dont see this set up being to comfy for consoles as most play on a couch or comfy chair...not a table!!

The half KB thing would need a flat service as well as the Mouse. With the fragfx...Ihave the dongle in my hand and the Mouse on a small table with mousepad to my great :)

why not just get a drag fx pro,it's a descent set but it doesn't matter what you use on a console-for some reason it doesn't feel right))))just make sure you got a foot place to rest your arm on cause it's uncomfortable

Why? Seems kinda retarded to have a keyboard that ONLY does what the controller can do..... Plus you can already hook up any usb full keyboard and mouse on the ps3, though not many games support it.

Misleading article is misleading. Just because Sony licensed it does NOT mean Sony "announced" it. This is clearly a 3rd party peripheral and not a Sony product. I mean come on...Sony would never give a product a name like "Tactical Assault Commander 3"...gimme a break. I'll bet this never even shows up on American shelves.

And you can use any keyboard and mouse on the PS3, so long as the game supports why would anyone pay over $100 for stuff you can find for $30? What's next? Some company making a "special" PS3 hard drive? Though I'm sure someone has tried that scam as well...

I'm not a PC gamer, but I know the preference to Keyboar+mouse require much more that 6keys.

what about # hotkeys?

gr8... be prepared to get ur asses whooped. Its already bad enough you cant tell if kids out there are using modded controllers, or modded keyboards n mice... this is gonna suck later on when more people own it and use it online... i still prefer controller and console over anything.

For the pricing, you guys probably don't know, but pricing in Japan is always ridiculous for stuff like this. Yes they converted the price from Yen to USD, but by no means does that mean that's what the price will be over here (and it rarely ever is).

A more likely price point would be $99.99 for NA regions.

But yeah, while this peripheral is cool, don't forget that you can already use any commercial USB keyboard and USB mouse on the PS3, so you don't even HAVE to buy this.

Yeah that may be true. $99 is still expensive. But IMO anything more than $60 is really pushing it.
