Default Re: Keyboard and mouse bad or good for X-Box live?

I never finished Halo on XBox because I suck at FPS's with those controllers. I'd certainly welcome a keyboard/mouse option. I never really was into XBox Live either.

I'll probably pick one of them up. The only downside is finding a good surface to put the keyboard/mouse on while at the couch. Guess I'd prob have to use the coffee table and sit on the floor.

Halo is one specific case where I'm actually better with a controller than a mouse and keyboard, it's wierd.....I guess just playing it so frequently on xbc and at tournies, that it becomes natural.

I welcome the change. FPS with a controller sucks.

Default Re: Keyboard and mouse bad or good for X-Box live?

I had a discussion with my cousin, who is in a top 10 ranked Halo clan, about this last night. He said he didn't care really, just thought we'd look pretty goofy playing w/ a kb/ms while everyone else is using controller. I reminded him it was obvious he doesn't attend a lot of Lan parties

The only thing that bothers me about this is does Halo allow you to disable “auto aim”? That would royally suck trying to aim w/ a mouse w/ that thing on.

Talking Re: Keyboard and mouse bad or good for X-Box live?

I am not really against the move, but for sure against the timing of the whole thing. Since they know that such a thing would screw the level playing field they have, why don't they make sure everyone gets it as standard, wait a bit, make a new beginning on a new platform? What i'm saying is, leave the current platform as it stands and do it for the Xbox 2 Live (as long as they don't have it as optional). That way, either everyone will be happy with it or all players will be bitching about it (level playing field)
