Video: PS4 Keyboard and Mouse Support for PlayStation 4 Games Demo

Why did you do this?

I like playing shooter games on PC but my laptop is too weak to play them. Game consoles do not support USB keyboards and USB mouse, they only support gamepads. Gamepad controls are not suitable for shooter games, using a keyboard and mouse is much more comfortable for gameplay.

How does it work?

I designed a circuit that features a microcontroller and USB hub. The keyboard and mouse plugs into the USB hub, and then the microcontroller takes the data from the keyboard and mouse, translates them to the data format used by the PlayStation 4. It does the translation in a way as though the mouse was the right thumbstick, and the keys are mapped to buttons (the WASD keys are mapped to the left thumbstick).

107w ago - Dust 514 Executive Producer Brandon Laurino has announced today that their new PS3 update a dds Eve Online integration, keyboard and mouse controls as outlined below.

To quote: Greetings from Shanghai and the DUST 514 development team!

I'm Brandon Laurino, Executive Producer for DUST 514, here to let you know what's going on in development, and bring you a sneak preview of the improvements coming to the DUST 514 Closed Beta with our "Precursor" release on August 21st.

Whether you're a hardcore beta tester or just casually interested in the game, next week's update marks another significant milestone as the game moves towards Open Beta.

The first live DUST 514 / EVE Online integration
Linking the intense front-line combat of DUST 514 with the galactic ship warfare of EVE Online has always been our keystone to building a vibrant community, and now that keystone is coming into place.

With the Precursor release, we move DUST 514 from its standalone testing server over to the long-standing EVE Online test server, Singularity (aka "Sisi"). This means DUST 514 on PlayStation 3 and EVE Online on PC/Mac will be officially running on the same server.

When the Precursor Closed Beta build goes live, players on the Sisi server in DUST 514 and EVE Online...
 

PlayStation Branded PS3 Keyboard and Mouse Controller Incoming

150w ago - Today Sony has announced news of a PlayStation branded PS3 keyboard and mouse controller slated for release on November 2, 2011.

Manufactured by HORI, the Tactical Assault Commander 3 peripheral set will sells for 9800 ($127 US) and is officially licensed by Sony Computer Entertainment.

To quote: "The Tactical Commander 3 consists of an optical right-handed mouse and a keypad for the left hand with WASD-style keys. The pad also includes an easy-access D-Pad comes attached with a palm rest.

Tracking resolution on the optical mouse is unclear, but it's doubtful that the mouse can match the capabilities of a true gaming mouse for the PC. However, the mouse will come equipped with a DPI/sensitivity toggle for more precise aiming.

Sony has not yet announced what games it plans to support with the peripherals at this time. It's curious to see if the company plans to offer mouse and keyboard support for first person shooters like Killzone 3 and Resistance 3, which would undoubtedly benefit from the precision offered by the peripherals."

This is an OSK (On-Screen Keyboard) for the development of homebrews. Since I did not get to show the PS3 by psl1ght OSK decided to make one. Thinking about thinking I decided that maybe someone else saw this, so I decided to share my work: [Register or Login to view links]

I hope to serve you,
