It's a shame Xbox owners wont see any cross plat play, but there's probably enough players on Live to not make any difference in reality.

Well I wouldnt say PS3 having cross game chat is an advantage. Unless PS3 gamers started using Mouse keyboard (in which case they might as well start playing on PC). Playing the game on a DS3 against PC gamers is like going to a gun fight with a knife.

Lol @ multiple accounts spammming disagrees, seriously are people so butthurt over someone posting an opinion.

TitanUp4615d ago

this game will support keyboard and mouse on ps3 you can look up on google

decrypt4615d ago

I know it supports Mouse keyboard. However if you are going to play with Mouse keyboard then might as well play it on PC with higher res, and frame rates etc.

RememberThe3574615d ago

Unless you don't have a PC that can run games (me), then it makes more sense to buy the game on a platform you already have.

morganfell4615d ago

Really? In every game?


In FPS titles yes. But in TPS games the controller often has a distinct advantage. Ownage was the name of the game in Splinter Cell online for controller players. A 360 pad plugged into your PC made a huge difference. A great deal of this is due to rotation camera aspects which do not function as well with KB/M. And in some games you live and die by situational awareness.

You just can't objectively blanket every game with that KB/M statement.

Of course there is also IGNs famous, or rather infamous 360 controller PC test.

Oxymoron0284615d ago

Are you suggesting that people only play games on the PC because of mouse and keyboard support? Because from what you wrote it sounds so.

There's a reason consoles exist and it's not because of their control methods.

Heartnet4615d ago

a reason u cud be getting disagrees as ur replying to a comment which had nothing to do with Cross Game Chat lol ur brining up sumin irrelevant and off topic :)

gamingdroid4615d ago (Edited 4615d ago )

I wonder how they are going to balance the game for cross platform play. Counterstrike was a very fast paced game that demand accuracy.

I would hate to be on a pad, while my enemy is on a mouse and keyboard.

Nothing breaks an online game faster than it being unbalanced in favor of one group!

evrfighter4615d ago

Wtf u talking bout cross game chat. Hes getting disagree spammed because he's absolutely right.

look closely nobody has an argument against him. Even morganfail goes off topic talking about third person shooters.

elmaton984615d ago

I play a couple games on pc with a controller and I don't have a problem playing on par with someone who s using a M/K.

Commander_TK4615d ago

Who cares? Just give us L4D 1 & 2 for PS3 NOW!!!

TitanUp4615d ago

only reason i disagreed cause i thought you was saying ps3 doesn't support keyboard and mouse

sikbeta4615d ago

WOW, it's that difficult for some dudes to believe that people prefer to game on consoles no matter the genre or stuff? like 10 years ago was playing the hack out of CS on PC, now I'll do it on my PS3 :D

Soldierone4615d ago

I actually had no issues keeping up with keyboard and mouse people using a controller in several games....its simply more comfortable for me. However I can easily use both.

I think a lot of the framerate people need to read this article.

People use "lower framerates" to cover up things and help with motion blurring so your mind doesn't laugh at the mistakes they made. So upping it isnt always the best solution either.

caperjim4615d ago (Edited 4615d ago )

A knife to a gunfight? Sorry dont think so. I play with a gamepad for all supported multiplayer pc shooters. By your statement i must be imagining being consistently on top of the scoreboard.

I hope valve gets the gamepad controls on PC and console right. Dice did a great job with PC battlefield 3 beta.

Mr_Lu_Kim4615d ago

lol at all you attack dogs. I think decrypt ment cross platform play and just typed cross game chat.

Chill you grumpy bitches chill. (bitch being a female dog)

BTW KB/M > Gamepad every day.

ikkokucrisis4614d ago

Hmm, someone should take a serious look at developing and incorporating a trackball into a controller. That could give you the enhanced precision with the comfort of a controller while playing! :)

HSx94614d ago

PS3 can keep their PC cross game mode, I willbe laughing when they have to experience PC aimbotters and hackers.

JaredH4614d ago (Edited 4614d ago )

Yep I agree. If all the cool people on this site have a ps3 and a PC why wouldn't they buy it on PC anyway instead of disagreeing. I have never hooked up a keyboard and mouse to my ps3. I think it'd be weird playing on a couch with it when the screens so far away compared to a normal PC.

MysticStrummer4614d ago

You're getting disagrees because you brought up cross game chat as if someone else did it first, and because you say playing with a mouse and keyboard on PS3 means you might as well play on PC, which is ridiculous. @evrfighter - You're getting disagrees because cross platform play has very little to do with having a higher number of players to compete against. Each platform will have plenty of people to play with. The point is they can play each other. So you see, TheHooligan isn't "absolutely right". He's partly right, because it is a shame 360 won't get this feature.

I think it's the actual cross platform play that's the highlight here, not the number of players on each platform.

gamingdroid4615d ago (Edited 4615d ago )

Isn't the benefit just more players?

... but yes, the highlight is cross platform play, not the number of players.

ClimateKaren4614d ago

No, if 10,000 people are playing on PC and 100,000 are playing on XBL, the games you're playing still only contain as many people as are allowed. The benefit of a whole new group of players is having a different community available to game with. So if I'm on PS3 and my PC-only buddies are playing this, I'll be able to play with them, despite gaming on different platforms.

Gamer19824615d ago

We all know why we wont ever see cross platform play of 360 to ps3 and non MS cross platform to PC. A shame really but thats life.

Ducky4615d ago (Edited 4615d ago )

... Well, if shadowrun is anything to go by, then a competitive FPS might not be an ideal candidate for cross-platform play.

It remains to be seen how well CS:GO fares.

jessupj4614d ago

It is a shame MS has to be so closed minded and stubborn. They're like a little toddler in a play group that steals all the toys and won't share with anyone else unless they play by MS's unfair rules.

I would have loved to play against 360 players. I'm sure I'm not alone either.

Drekken4615d ago

No. My PC runs CS:S @ 120FPS. I highly doubt that is the case. They won't lock PC frame rate.. they will speed up the PS3's pacing.

kcuthbertson4615d ago

I hope valve doesn't lock the framerate on PC...however that doesn't mean that they can't. Rage is locked at 60FPS no matter what.
