PS3 gamers unable to utilise PS3's peripheral support for Valve's upcoming smasher
I hope we can filter if we want to play with padders or not.
same. I remember when Mac users got TF2 and server owners found a way to filter them lol...
seriously? that made me lol
Lol yea would be disgusting to be handicapped playing with a control pad player.
hate those keyboard and mouse so called master race gamers i would like to see there accuracy scores in fps games
@nickjkl MS already did, go ask them what happened with Xbox and PC crossplay. It went down the toilet because the best of the best controlpad gamers couldnt keep up with average PC gamers lol.
But you do know that there is no competitive multiplayer? It is not about playing against each other in a running around and shooting stuff game but in a puzzle game - it is more about actually solving the puzzles, you can do that with a controller, don't you? I played Portal with a XBox-Controller attached to my rig, worked like a charm (to be fair - I played this game with m/kb first). Do you really have to beat on consoles just because of the pure reason that they're consoles?
To be honest, I was hoping they would add Keyboard/Mouse support, the only other developer that has ever done it was Epic games, and that was for unreal tournament on the ps3, and i thought that was siiiick, gaahh, devs are gay sometimes...

When the hell are the reviews coming out?
why would people choose mouse and keyboard over DS3 on PS3 anyway? I have heard many times claiming DS3 can whoop mouse anytime right here in N4G. Lets find it out, shall we? :)
because the input is analog and thus not able to make the same movements a cheaper mouse can make. Hence the need for auto aim in most console shooters to compensate for lack of accuracy
Analog input is actually a good thing. However, the problem with analog sticks is: a) they cover only a tiny area oompared to the big movements a mouse can make - so input is much less precise and requires a certain amount of acceleration to be usable at all b) Due to the nature of analog sticks, you cannot make continuous movements. You move the stick in one direction, then back to the middle, then in another direction, back to the middle etc.
There is no **need** for auto-aim in console FPS games. Devs just add it to make their games more noob-friendly, thus appealing to the masses, thus sell more (ie: CoD). I won't argue with you that M&KB is superior though, that's obvious. But dual analog isn't bad to the point of necessitating aim-assist. I prefer by far when there isn't any aim-assist at all, in fact, but I've had a lot more practice with dual-analog than your average player! ;) Edit: @ct03 (I was writing while you posted!): What do you mean by "you cannot make continuous movements"? Are you referring to the way the sticks work, or how players use them? Because I rarely ever have the sticks in the middle when playing FPSs--always to the edges, strafing and turning.
The analog sticks work using a dead zone. The only position of the stick that doesn't result in movement on screen is the center position. Because of this, making complex continuous movements is impossible. Try "drawing" an eight on screen with your crosshairs to see what I mean.
I feel like they've substituted mouse and keyboard for THE FULL RETAIL VERSION OF THE GAME ON PC. Not bad at all.
Who cares? It is a co-op puzzle game. People say that mouses are more accurate, but its not a 'shooting' game really, so a pad is good enough.
That's true for the retail version of the game but when it comes to user made levels people will be creating puzzles that require fast reflexes. That could be a problem if you're using a DS3 or playing with someone who is.
Well, if I wanna play with M&K I'll just boot up the free PC copy I get with the PS3 version of the game, pick up right where I left off using Steamcloud. You can't go wrong with the PS3 version IMO.
True, I was actually thinking of selling the PS3 version after downloading the PC one so that I could get a good chunk of my money back.
Considering you get the PC copy with the PS3 one....wouldn't it make more sense to just use that for the PC?
Maybe they will release a patch later.
Either the writer of the news origin or the submitter here needs to get a life already. Just simply wanna spike over small little thing to find fault with anything that sounded great on ps3. Now I dun often see articles like this bashing something on pc or 360 just to pin point on small little unnecessary things. Why do one even want to care about farking kb/mouse if wanna play this in ps3. It's a console not a freaking pc. Putting that aside are these ppl forgetting you get a pc copy for free when you buy the ps3 version? You can bloody play with your kb/mouse as much as you want on the pc copy. Does this even worth an article? I mean wtf are with ppl these days? Why dun an article like does pc version work on ps3 or 360 version gets free ps3 version article come out then. Gosh. Sorry I may sound a little hash at start but just simply annoyed that such article can even exist. The writer should get buried. Dun get me wrong I not trying to side ps3. I have all the platforms. But it's just get into me when I see this one.
Wow, just because Valve gives us Portal 2 all is forgiven for their earlier stance towards the PS3. Why would they not add keyboard and mouse support for PS3 out of the box?
Maybe they do not know how to? At least we do not have a forced install so that is a plus.
Good god man. You get 2 versions for 1, and one of those versions uses a platform that uses kb&m. I knew sooner or later there was going to be that one comment that complains for the sake of things.
Because Portal 2 is not exactly how Valve should be kissing the asses of PS3 owners after years of intentional neglect. I wanted something a hell of a lot more significant than a puzzle game.
Kissing ass? Haha. Gotta love it when people think they're entitled to stuff.
Yes, we are entitled to stuff cause its OUR money they want. Valve, just like every other developer has to convince us that their product is worth buying. The days of only have 1 option are long since gone. If they want my money they had better work as hard for it as I do.
I know we PS3 users and Valve have had our differences, but I believe we can pu t them aside, for science.
They really should have added it, considering the idea of being able to play with people on PC, the PC people don't really want to play with PS3 people.
Mouse/KB don't care...what about Move support?
