Re: Mouse & Keyboard ??

One of my posts at "香港 (Hong Kong) 地區 Xbox 討論區" dated "05-18-2006, 7:51PM":

A little difficult to read the post. I take it the question is if there is mouse and keyboard support in 360?

There is, for as far as the dashboard is concerned. However, this is not an official feature. It is great for text input like messaging. Either hook up a USB device or get one of those adapters to connect old-style hardware to USB.

In-game support is only disabled but theoretically possible, it would be possible if
a) MS allows it and
b) the games have the necessary driver.

However, that would raise the question why buying expensive computer hardware if you can play a FPS with mouse precision on the console as well? After all, consoles are the controller domain. The Web is divided over this topic by the controller and keyboard/mouse groups.
