In an interview with Tim Willits, creative-director of Quake Champions, we were told hardware is not the reason why the game is not coming to Xbox or PlayStation.
Damn, that's a harsh blow. Doom just smashed it on consoles - so why no love id?
From the sounds of it they reckon the speed of the game will not be controller friendly. Lol getting negged for quoting the article: True, but [this decision] is not about the hardware. It’s about how hard it is to play this type of game with a controller.
seeing how nubs in Cod play on controller sensitiviy 10 anyway, not that they're any good, I don't see this being a valid excuse.
@InTheZone I played 14 sensitivity in COD BO3, and I'm great. You're right though, it's a bullshit excuse.
The simple solution is to make the console version compatible with a mouse and keyboard.
and it is true, console fanboys are always in denial and think controller is just as good at m/k when it isn't even if you play in 100 sense.... and doom is a joke compared to quakes speed btw.... oh and who ever said cod.... LULZ!
Keyboard, mouse, bigger FOV, and high frame rates help a lot in FPS games. Consoles are too restrictive to allow for any of these.
Keyboard mouse support is not far away on Xbox.
Keyboard and mouse is supported already on ps4, and with NEO and Scorpio bringing higher specs they can put in a wider fov and achieve higher frame rates
The issue isn't whether or not the console supports it, the issue is that it's not a standard with consoles whereas it is with pc. How many people play with m&k on console compared to controllers? Obviously not many.
I wonder how many disagrees I can get on this site.
https://m.reddit.com/r/PS4/... It's all up to developers if "they want" the key point is the standard controller option is Bluetooth game pad, but since standard USB keyboard and mouse works...Developers would have to add it in.. https://support.us.playstat...
Yeah they can't make a game require k/b, console makers won't allow it. People are going to use controllers and complain
PC Master Race 1:0
1:0???? After all change org petitions for bloodborne, horizon,persona5,uncharted4 spidermanPS4 etc..... You got a short memory buddy
The best jokes are those that almost nobody understood ;-)
He's obviously joking
Devs I think who Sony won't get there titles on the neo and Scorpio, Honestly I can't imagine what idiotic kind of backwards thinking that is. Not only is it an untapped x amount of millions of users for any older titles still going or any new titles about to be released, but the amount of revenue that despite possibly older games becoming stale for users on pc to console players there like new games period. We are already seeing a good amount of devs putting in the work because they realise the above from what I said and that's great, but I just can't understand the ones who don't, especially when mouse and keyboard support is now months away for Xbox, don't know how song are handling that bit. But you see devs need to change and stop with this no console approach and alienating consoles to a degree your pushing away a good many millions of possible owners of your title and a good many possible in game purchase payers. I know what I would be doing if I was a dev on pc and that's get the work done and get the team's developed titles on console asap.
I do should point out that game developers need to stop releasing half ass PC ports or handicapping games due to being released on consoles. Is just a proven fact that console gamers (MAJORITY not all) do not like complex games; hence, no rts, mmo, or simulation games on consoles. I also want to point out that is up to PC devs to release their games on console or not
I thought you could play consoles with a mouse and keyboard if you wanted to anyway?
Yea but they aren't gonna make a game that forces people on a platform to use that type of control. PC Gamers play with m&k majority of the time, where as with consoles it's a very small minority
I don't mind. I just upgraded my rig, so I will be getting quake. Doom did what I told those it would do. Even with people bitching of the "compromise" that it had to do. It has started to peek interest in something that was long dead. And that's awesome. Besides let the "pc master race" get a exclusive. So far they only get shit MOBA and grindfest MMO's.
No rts ❤ : Xcom 2 Stellaris Offworld trading company Total War Warhammer No mention of simulator exclusive games like American Truck No mention of exclusive games like death smiles or Lethe One. PC gaming home to platformers like cave story, retro jrpgs, and lots and lots of shmup games. ....
Not a problem. If it's not coming to the PS4, I just won't buy it (I did buy Doom and really like it). I game only on consoles, not PC. I guess they prefer to skip the millions of units they'd sell on consoles, kind of a strange decision.

The PlayStation TV, The PS3 , and PS4 support Key board and mouse support , hell I use a Bluetooth mobile keyboard and mouse with my PlayStation TV all the time. The option is there, though I feel not very many developers would take the time to add in that option to their games, instead of keeping just the game pad only.. It's reverse of the PC..some game did not have a controller option, on some games..just keyboard & Mouse.. It's ironic in the fact that both PC and consoles both support Bluetooth and USB cable Keyboard and mice..but PC still supports PS2 Mouse and keyboard still as an option...so there is that..maybe it would be different is if game consoles added the PS2 serial bus...port's ..LMAO
Dont let it bother you, id MP stuff feels dated and isn't particularly fun anyway imo.
Accept it,folks. PC only. Move along now
Said the guy that recently was begging for Yakuza games.
I only beg that Sega brings those games to the west. The platform is irrelevant to me but I can have my preference. Just today Nier Automata,a former PS4 exclusive was announced for Steam. I did not beg for that to happen but when it did ,I was glad that another platform was opened for me to play it.
Oh well, if only Sony/Microsoft allowed kb and m as a way to play games not just force game developers to utilize the gamepad.
The consoles already do , or in the case of the Xbox one it will Soon..the systems already can..the key points it's not forced..if a developer wanted to add in support they could! The key point is since a keyboard and mouse do not ship with the systems, the developers do not see a real need to support mouse and keyboards. Both the Xbox one and the PS4 can and already has the necessary ports and drivers already there. But it's not that it's "forced" on the developer by Microsoft or Sony, it's just that to save costs down Mice & Keyboard are not shipped with the systems. Hell DreamCast Keyboard & Mouse support, remember that? Support by the hardware vendors is really not the issue at all. It's due to mainly no KB&Mouse packed in. But controller is. PC's are reverse of that, except for like the new Steam machines and new PC's that have Microsoft new wireless standard for Xbox controller peripherals.. Now even PC motherboards are coming Equipped with this new standard by some PC manufacturers.
The PS3 allowed it if the devs took advantage of it. I used to play Unreal Tournament 3 with a usb KB+M; all you had to do was turn on the feature in the option menu.
Awwwwww. Probably be better for neo anyway....
Hardware isn't the issue, and there are PCs way more powerful than PS4 Neo, so what is your point?
Sorry , better on neo ,and ps4.
What is yours.>*is he human?*
