    Hi,
    When you use a keyboard and mouse with an XBox or PS2 does it give you the same gameplay feel like you would get playing a game on the PC?... I'm thinking of getting a console but I could'nt bear using a controller to play first person shooters (which I normally play).

    Does anyone use a keyboard and mouse with their consoles? If so could you tell me your experiences with them - precision etc?

    All input would be great before I take the plunge and buy a console.

    Also, I know this is a stupid question but what the heck! ---> Which is best? XBOX or PS2?

    Thanks, Colin

    I'd say you get the same experience, and I virtually only ever play FPS'.

    I'm not sure if you can say it is the same experience since you play farther away and you aren't sitting in front of a desk, unless you have it set up that way.

    That's what I was thinking also. I've used a keyboard with a console before (Dreamcast) and it was a bit odd figuring out a way to do so as unlike my PC(s) I don't have my consoles on a desk.
