  • PS4 keyboard / mouse controller replicates PC FPS-style gaming

  • bad09 27/07/2015

    @mega-gazz

    If it is like the incoming Xbone support I think games will have to support the control method.

    Thinking about mapping though, surely it can work if that is what is? Pure speculation but you can map mouse to pad and get pretty good results even perfect results depending on game or genre so can't see why it wouldn't work well the other way.

    as for proper support giving an imbalance it quite clearly works on PC with both sets of methods being used. If it really does turn out to cause issues on consoles I can't see why you can't split out players just like game modes anyway.

    I didn't say they will dominate phones but they blurring the line across these devices and not just for gaming either. Your content across all devices is where it is headed.

    Believe what you want but according to Spencer the plan is just that.

    As for the plaforms not growing closer together what year are you in? :) Consoles are practically HTPCs now and PCs are becoming more like consoles for ease of use. MS are blurring the line across PC, console AND phone.

    I can only remember SF5 at the moment there are a couple coming and according to Spencer once W10 hits cross play will become more common for Bone/PC

    http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidthier/2015/01/21/windows-10-will-allow-cross-platform-play-between-pcs-and-xbox-one/

    The line between "console" and "PC" as a "gaming" device is blurring so much now I reckon eventually the player bases will just merge. As I said I think that is why MS are putting K&M support in the bone.

    @WorldScaper

    Cross play is players from different systems playing together. We are starting to see games where PC and console players are playing together (probably the reason why both consoles are getting this kind of attention in this control method).

    To be honest having seen dated pigheaded "PC means designing for mouse and keyboard only" devs like Bioware and Infinty Ward eventually buckle to consumer requests and finally offer controller support I'm not convinced that dev was talking rubbish. Certainly the point of having a large majority of players across multiple platforms using controller on the one game is in no way rubbish and K&M is beyond a doubt a minority in that respect.

    @WorldScaper

    The minority comment came from a games developer not something I made up. These companies design for controllers and add K&M for the minority using it. As I said these games are designed on 3 platforms and the vast majority are using controllers. Why do think cross play is starting to become more common?

    @Drunk-Si

    But that is still opinion when you talk of "lend themselves" to a particular method. I've heard of Street Fighter on a keyboard, Batman games on K&M, I myself like playing Total War games with a pinnacle profile (Bloody epic on a big TV! :) ).

    As for driving games I know people who prefer pads to wheels (I do on arcade racers like Ridge Racer).

    There is no "objectively better" when talking control methods as you use what you prefer and is most comfortable. For example if someone prefers using a pad for racers how can you say to them a wheel is better? For them it isn't.

    @L_A_G

    Like the high end "elite" chasing fastest FPS and highest res the K&M elitists scream the loudest but reality tells a different story. Pads are very popular on PC...kinda why no support is practically unheard of these days in any genre.

    A dev (who I can't remember sadly) said a while back, K&M elitists need to face up to the fact they are a minority these days. As I said when you factor in these games are made for 3 platforms the K&M users are a very small minority indeed.

    @Drunk-Si

    I do think there is a need to cater for K&M properly with well thought out controls as it is still a valid option for control. Dark Souls as I understand it was poorly adapted for K&M so people have the right to complain IMO.

    As for what is "superior", as I said it is absolute nonsense best left for the fanboy dribblers as ultimately it's all about what you are comfortable with personally. Sure if you are the type to care about silly K/D ratios it might matter but everyone else doesn't care if a mouse is slightly better at aiming or pads are slightly better for movement.

    Personally I don't notice any difference in my abilities using either and I happily play FPS with a pad if they are supported (although I'm not the type to care about winning or losing just having fun). I've not played the last one but COD always seems quite playable on either method to me (haven't tried Titanfall with K&M so can't comment there).

    @teddy1590

    You're not weird, truth is (and I will negged to hell for saying this :) ) even on PC controllers are more common apparently. K&M players are in reality a very small number compared to those playing with controllers (when you look at multiplatform across platforms they are tiny) it's just a great goto for fanboys when bickering over platforms so it just seems like all PC gamers prefer K&M.

    Outside the platform wars most people just use what they feel comfortable with so play how you want and anyone telling you about "superior" control methods should be dismissed as complete and utter idiots.

    Look I don't care about your little lists and not getting into a pissing contest, you like your console I couldn't care less for me I can get what I want on PC so have no need for 1, 2 or 3 extra machines just to play an extremely small handful it's just a huge waste to me these days (not that your 3 game list holds any interest whatsoever for me personally anyway).

    All I'm saying is crap like Warner and Tecmo (console focused publishers) make/publish bland recycled stuff these days and they wouldn't be missed by me now if they did get off the platform. The PC market is bigger than a handful of console focused publishers with rubbish products and thankfully bigger than the increasingly dull triple A tripe to. Keep your console focused publishers I'm getting to the point I think it would be best for all....but they want the profit so...

    You don't get it. people don't need it to be so broken it needs to be withdrawn they can get refunds for any reason bad ports will suffer refunds to. The crap like Warner will need to up their game or might as well get off the platform. Like I said no loss either as it leaves the platform for better companies more deserving of our cash.

    The Japanese better learn how to make pc games quick that's for sure :)

    If they want to focus on consoles so be it. Once upon a time I wanted companies on pc but their products are so poor I spend with others anyway. Fuck 'em and their overhyped franchises. Console focused games are getting dull these days anyway....

    They will lose money as people will simply refund. Losing sales on the biggest download platform? You are aware these companies are trying to make money right? Up until now consumers on PC have just had to suck it up but now?

    We'll see indeed and I predict shit like Warner either leaving the platform (no loss on the crap that try it with crap ports quite frankly) or upping the quality of their products to a decent level...like they claim they will do oddly enough...

    They are only fixing it because they have to if they want to sell it on Steam now. That is probably what sparked their review of quality control to. The mess of Mortal Kombat or Dying Light at launch didn't urge them into action. Wonder why this particular crap port did? hmmmmm...

    @JaqenHGhar80

    The number of PC users who actually run 4k are less than 1%. The "buzz" around 4K is more marketing than something common in the PC market, they are trying to sell 4K to you with articles like this more than anything.

    Like you say many PC gamers won't accept less than 60fps but, like IneptPercy says, not everyone is chasing framerates and some do chose visuals over framerate, on lower systems and for 4K.

    I find it so weird some people care what the box of a game looks like. Do these people sitting staring at plastic boxes rather than playing games or something?

    Just weird to me that it matters in any way. You are buying a game not a poster. It will likely sit on a shelf with only the side title showing anyway so why does it matter?

    Same here, i do understand but just see the other side having gamed on so many different systems. It's why i have a card more powerful than i ever owned it is nice to drive that want for more and ultimately kick arse setup. More money is nice but always feasible.

    We kinda agree but disagree at the same time. That is the problem with a platform you customise to your own needs :)
