    Ok, between that and UC2...now I have a legit reason for getting an Xbox. :lol:

    And thank goodness for that since the only alternative to using the Xbox gamepad for FPS games is that wacky looking controller with the gun triggers

    This does make it nicer but usb to oversized xbox usb adaptors have been around for quite some time.


    With out any good drivers for the mice....functions will be very basic....but still way better than anything a console controler has. :)

    There, no one can complain anymore about first person shooters on consoles not being as good as the PC versions. :D

    This device needs USB 2.0 support though. I hope the next version of it that comes out adds that.

    Why would it need USB 2.0 support? As far as I know USB 2.0 is made for high speed transfers between data transfer devices and the computer... stuff like retrieving pictures off of a digital camera.

    Besides it is not USB, it is PS/2. PS/2 ports are faster and better for a mouse than USB. See for yourself. Plug your mouse into the PS/2 port and notice how smoothly your cursor moves across the screen. No pixels are skipped during sliding the cursor across the screen. Then try plugging it into USB. The cursor movement, while still smooth, is not butter smooth any more. The movement of the cursor is a tad jerky, like it skips 2 or 3 pixels during average speed cursor motion.

    This device should be interesting, but it will make the single player WAY too easy and you will probably own everybody using a controller in multiplayer. Only bad thing about this is finding a location to rest your keyboard and mouse on. You will need to play with a tray in front of you or something.
