1st google result: https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5087/~/use-keyboard-and-mouse-with-ps4
why would you want to do a thing like that?
Because Iam a pc player and there is no way Iam getting used to the Dualshock however I wanted to try next gen games like Infamous and Killzone that are exclusive for ps4.
But is it only for the system navigation or for games as well?
You can use it in games aswell.
Im pc games aswell but there is some games whoam are much funnier, better and easyer play with Dualshock
It sucks to be you then because from what i gather when doing a brief search of the interwebs is that the new killzone doesnt have K&M support. Infamous is probably the same.
System navigation only. You can't play games on a console with KB+M unless they're crazy arcade style from PSN or XBLA that support it.
Consoles are controller only
PC's take both.
If a game is PS/XB exclusive, be prepared to be limited to controller, or get an emulator
here is some DIY for PS4 mouse & Keyboard project
Its a lot of effort to get it working, since the OP CBA to play games using a controller I doubt he would have the motivation, drive or patience anywhere near enough to get something like this to work.
But i gave you thanks because it made for an interesting read.
Well make it easy and buy this
You do realize that you just explained the exact reason why most people have a drive to do something? Why would anyone ever create something (the dude in the video) to use a mouse and keyboard on a console if they were willing to learn to use a controller?
FreedomEclipse, YOU sir will never create something new or come up with a new idea or be inventive, because you're too willing to just do.
I used to make my own fishing hangers, springers & other bite indicators when my original ones broke and I didnt want to fork out £20 each for new ones. I made some out of plastic clothes pegs & pen lids by drilling a small hole through the bottom of them and securing them with a small ball-chain with a little high gauge wire use to attach to my line when the whole thing was set up - the wire was bent in such a way that it didnt completely hook the fishing line but merely pinched it at the correct tension thus falling away when i lifted the rod to strike and hooked into a fish.
Additionally I was able to use a little splitshot and add a little weight to my hangers to keep the tension in windy conditions.
It was fun. I enjoyed making them and they worked a treat.
But then again. You dont know me and i dont need to explain myself to you, at least not my sense of creativity.
And yet you're here talking that trash to a complete stranger. Amazing.
Kind of ironic coming from somebody who says i 'will never create something new or come up with a new idea or be inventive' is it not? You judged me based on a single post i made.
Re-read that post I mentioned and this time imagine that someone else wrote it. Enough said.
Did you join the forum just to argue and put down people? wow.
Anyways, afaik there is not way of connecting kb and a mouse to a ps4 to play games (at least without going through quite a bit of work). I'm guessing you would need to map controller settings to the keyboard which I don't really know how it would be possible because of the analogue functions on the controller which when controlled by a kb I would imagine gameplay would be quite jerky without tinkering with settings and the hardware quite a bit.
EDIT: nevermind, in the article n0tiert posted ;
So yeh I guess it would be possible but it would take A LOT of hard work (for the average guy anyway).
I think he's OneMoar's twin brother - a person that ultimately knows more than most people on these forums but lacks people skills to properly communicate with others on a normal level
I was defending the OP, or did you not read everything and just jump to conclusions?
Funny that you mention irony and then create this post...
Damn, I'm tempted to get one myself. There is also the FragFX which is supposed to be a little better but at the cost of poorer build quality.
User reviews say it is pretty good. A few bugs here and there but I guess that is to be expected when the games weren't designed for the product's use.
Seems to be between $80-$120 depending on the shop (both fragFX and Aimon Elite).
xim4 looks very promising. No clue when it will be available though.
PC gamer boughts console where must pay $200 for one game in 720p and 30fps, multiplayer, dlc's etc. And want to connect keyboard + mouse to it. LOL.
Seriously, sold it and build a PC. In PS4 price you have something on FX6300 and R7 260X.
Funny that you can't read forum rules and edit your post in order to not double post and untidy threads. You joined, you attacked a member whilst simultaneously necro'ing a thread that has long since been abandoned, and are not providing anything to this community (positively) in doing so.
You have been reported.
Enjoy your stay.
