Dude I'm rockin a PS2 to USB adapter I got from radio shack for like $10 cause the PC controllers I had didn't last nearly as long as a dualshock2 controller they imitate.
I've got the X-Box 360 controller that I hook up to the PC. It's great for all those fun games I want to play, that were ported very badly - or at least designed for controller gameplay.
Meh. I've only ever had one console, and it was only rented for two weeks, so it didn't last long enough. Anything you say about a console goes right over my head.
Repeat after me: Console shooters fail.
(For multiplayer, I mean.)
The best console FPS player pitted against a moderately good PC gamer will fail spectacularly... It's just the simple fact that the mouse offers more precise control than an analog stick.
But, I have no problem as long as the console players are on separate multiplayer servers than the PC players. But bear in mind that some talented individuals have made hardware mods that allow a mouse to be used with a console shooter... Do you really want to face them on unequal terms?
Also, it's definitely true that PCs offer better graphics and resolution, and the cost of a PS3 and a 1080p TV is about the same as a mid-range gaming PC and a 1920*1200 monitor.
Good, I have no intentions of ever getting a console anyway.
Do you know where I can get more information on this? I'm curious, and I just bought another DualShock 2 on Friday so I'd be so glad to hook it up to my piece of crap computer box.
Like I said, bought it at radio shack and it was radio shack brand, this was a couple of years ago though, comes with a driver disk but doesn't seem to really do anything. The only reason I want a PS3 is for the metal gear games and the ea skate games. Once I get back home I'll have to open up steam and look into some JA playing and maybe try to talk people into coming to the lugormod servers. So much more fun than the mindless fragging of baseJA, JA+ or Movie Battles.
