    Hey,

    I probably have a ps3 in a few days (if I didnt got ripped off :) )

    Allready ordered myself a few games and the ps3 comes with a game
    So I got 2 shooters: cod4 / resistance fall of man

    Im used to my PC, I play shooters for many years (since wolfenstein 3d)
    A very long time ago I tried playing some rogue spear on psx and it sucked..
    I know I should prolly get used to it.. but I was wondering, If I go online with the ps3 what type of players will I face? Do most people use their pads or have external keyboard/mouse? If most people use a mouse I should probably find myself a setting to be able to use that too since im pretty convinced a mouse must be superior no matter how skilled u are with a pad.. Or am I wrong here?

    AFAIK UT is the only PS3 shooter that allows KB+mouse.

    There is a controller called the SplitFish that is in essence a portion of keyboard (important part for fps) and mouse that will work on all fps games on PS3. Here's a pic :

    UT3 on the PS3 is amazing mate, can use all PC mods. Worth a look :smashin:

    That thing looks amazing! gonna have to check it out ..

    do many people use it? feels a bit like cheating tho if most ppl use pads :)

    also gonna check out UT3, hm I guess I have to setup some sort of table infront of my pc in order to use that splitfish
