Use Keyboard And Mouse On A 360

Apparently someone finally figured out how to get a keyboard and mouse on the 360. The device from modders XCM includes ports for PS/2 and USB devices as well as a PS2 port ... for some reason.

I don't know why Microsoft continues to make this difficult on people. Sony is going the complete opposite way and will try and make bluetooth devices as compatible with the PS3 as possible. Both the Wii and PS3 acknowledge that the console is good for downloading things other than just games, demos and movies - they're equipping their users with a web browser and everything ... and a Wii keyboard wouldn't surprise me one bit.

It's grand and all that Microsoft doesn't want to appear to be cutting into the PC gaming market. Course, if they were serious about that - they'd get better games on the PC. Gears of War for the PC? I wouldn't hold my breath.
