SegmentNext - "Xbox One modded to support Dualshock 4 controllers, old Xbox 360 controllers, mouse and keyboard".
This is pretty neat but how long before an update is release before this is nonfunctional?
Not only that doesn't this void the warranty?
No ones ever had fun without voiding a warranty.
actually guys.... you dont need to mod this at all. all it really is, is a USB dongle that acts like a controller with a usb input aswell. meaning you can plug in whatever you want. really guys, this is right on their home page.... http://cronusmax.com/ @below, again..... its just a USB dongle that acts as a controller. http://cronusmax.com/instru... oh and BTW: i dont think this will ever be patched. if they do then they need to change the hole controller code prob. or encrypt it. and you know that wont last long anyway.
If its anything like the 360 hacks most definitely, I don't believed they had a strait software hack like they did on the original xbox
truer words have never been spoken
the amount of warrenties ive voided over the years: 718,000,000,000 the amount of times a warranty would have come in handy after id voided it (and couldnt restore to stock): 0
Yay! Now I can play an inferior console with superior controllers! /s
its unfair if you play online against people who use keyboard when you use a controller. Dont get me wrong, i dont say controller are shit but to be honnest, kb + mouse is much more accurate than a controller.
IMO a mouse is better for aiming but a controller is better for moving, running, and jumping. I use Pinnacle Game Profiler to modify my games so I can use a controller to move and jump, while using a mouse to aim and shoot. I map the buttons on the controller and use that in my left hand, while using a mouse with my right. I rarely even use a keyboard anymore. That's just how I game though, not everyone would be comfortable with that setup.
The only movement benefits a controller has over a m+kb setup, is gradual acceleration/deceleration built into the sticks. Seeing as how you already acknowledged m+kb as superior for aiming, you unintentionally said it is also better for movement. Watch a trickjumping or DeFrag movie on youtube (preferably Quake 3) - many of what is done in those vids would be increasingly difficult if it not virtually impossible with a controller.
Ps3 has being doing this since day one,using keyboard unmodded.
To put it in perspective .... Yes, general navigation and typing in the system UI did, but only some "games" supported Key/Mouse Combo. UT3 being one.
PS2 also supported USB keyboard and mouse.
using a keyboard in games doesn't really do much - it's the mouse that's a game changer.
Don't most console natively support keyboards?
They do, but the game devs need to allow them as well to use them in games.
Lol he changed a bunch of crap because it wasn't made good enough to be next gen, I don't blame him.
Its pretty stupid that the console locks you out of certain input methods to even begin with
Does the mouse work correctly though? They had the same thing for the 360 when it came out. It sucked. The mouse moved at one speed.
You have to buy a third part device, like a XIM3.
Honesty one of best thing that Xbox one ever done expect following that people will mention this pretty damn awesome Microsoft so don't get rid of it you hear me
According to the website of the makers, it's not a mod on the console but an add-on, so it will not void the warranty.
