Elsewhere in this forum there is a post about a device that will allow you to use a keyboard and mouse on your gaming console. Iíve been wondering if this was possible. Looking around the local game stores, Iíve noticed that itís all console games on the shelves. No PC games. And, I was told that if I want to buy a PC game, I should pre order it as they receive so few PC games that I could miss out when they sell out.
And something else to consider is that in order to combat piracy , it seems like all the PC game companies are forcing you, one way or another, to go online with your gaming computer just to play the single player portion of the game. My experience with putting my gaming computer online is that sooner or later, I contract some kind of virus and have to ďflush the toiletĒ and start all over reloading my drivers, settings, games and missions. For these reasons, my gaming computer just does not go online.
All this is leading me to feel that games for PCís are going to go the way of the dinosaur.
So, I have started toying with the idea of buying a gaming console. But I just hate.......as in.......JUST HATE using those console controllers. My experience is that they are nowhere near as fast and accurate for getting on target as a mouse.
So the idea of using my keyboard and mouse on a gaming console really has my interest.
Soooooooo, any information you could post here on the subject would be too cool.
One other question.
I am interested in two current games. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (the latest one) and Battlefield 3. I will not buy these games if I have to play the single player portion online. But if one or both of these games needs to go online JUST to register my ownership, and then allows me to play the single player portion OFFLINE, I mite consider buying one and then taking my computer in to my local computer shop and using their very good anti virus protection to register the game.
Is this possible with one or both games?
