The XFPS adapter that lets you plug in a USB or PS2 mouse and keyboard and map it to the appropriate commands on your PlayStation 3 controller is now available. This thing made sense when it was released for the Xbox 360 (which doesn't support a mouse and keyboard in ANY game), but why would you need it for the PS3? Because although there are loads of USB ports, only a handful of games (UT3, Resistance) let you actually use something else besides the standard controller to play. It also lets you plug in PlayStation 2 DualShocks. The only downside? It's $99. [TotalConsole]
I wonder if this works any better than the FragFx by SplitFish. The problem devices like this have, is in translating mouse movements to analog-stick movements. both the mouse an analog stick have minimum movments "lengths", but the analog stick has a much longer minimum movement than a mouse does. So when using a mouse on a game that doesn't support a mouse-like minimum movement, the aiming feels very choppy. One of the biggest annoyances is that the cross hairs tend to move even after the mouse has stopped.
Anyone know if this product works any better? I can't see how it could, but I'm hopeful.
