I think Unreal is. Don't take my word for it though. Give it a Google. Smiley Happy

I was wondering about this too. I don't play ANY FPSes on the PS3 because of this but I'd like to be able to play R2 and KZ2. I wish more games supported keyboard and mouse.

Agreed, playing an FPS game with a sixaxis is like trying to guide mr happy into the triangle of delight whilst heavily intoxicated.

Re: Games on PS3 compatible with keyboard and mouse?

I tried UT3 and even that turned out to be a pitiful version of mouse support due, I understand, because the mouse support goes through analogue driver - it was like using a PC mouse on a mat of goo (or lag to others lol).

I've spent a year trying to adapt to playing fps competitively online with the PS3 and am now giving up and Cod WaW and all others will be played on a PC.


I've read the arguments against mouse support as it would be unfair to gamepad players but the type of control a mouse offers does not have to be in the form of PC mouse. Sony should adapt the Sixaxis controller by removing the right joystick and replace it with a trackball then everyone would be happy.

I used a trackball for a while playing UT99 and it doesn't take too long to adapt and it soon becomes quite natural - I certainly beat a lot of top players when using it.

But even if standard mouse support was added one big difference between gamepad and mouse players would be that with the mouse there would be no auto aim.

They won't add it into more FPS games on consoles because people with mouse and keyboards would dominate, it is ok with UT3 because aiming doesn't really come into things Smiley Tongue
