Mouse and keyboard with ps3

11 replies 151 views Edited Jul 12, 2013

I hear it is possible to use your mouse and keyboard for the ps3?

 

Is this true for all games or just some?

 

I would find it a little stupid if all ps3 games or even most were compatible with a keyboard and mouse.

Some, & not that many either.

Use a USB keyboard and mouse.

 

Only some games support it.

Certain games are compatible with KB/M

Such as dust 514

You can buy adaptors online that will let you use a KB/M on any game however.

Could you ball park a precentage of games that support it?

And do you think that gives the keyboarders / mouse users a unfair advantage against the ps3 controller users?

Or is the mouse and keyboard support fairly clunky?

I would say not alot - random guess - 40% 

 

It can become unfair in FPS, but I dont play those so it doesnt bother me.

Will the ps4 drop this keyboard/mouse compatibility? I love FPS, one of the main things I play.. This still doesn't bother me, however It would make sense to me if they did drop this for the ps4.

 

Thanks for the help also.

Most likely not. The keyboard and mouse can help those who are disabled and can not use a controller.

I use a bluetooth keyboard with a trackpad for messaging only.  Couldn't imagine playing a game with a keyboard/mouse setup.
