    Anyone have any links or information on hooking up a keyboard and mouse to a 360? About 15 years of PC gaming has left with out the skills needed for FPS's using a controller. It's just super frustrating getting fraged in games I know I could be good at using a controller type that feels right.

    Anyone else go through this?

    I think you can only use the keyboard to type stuff, I don't think you can use a keyboard/mouse for controls in games. Maybe I'm wrong...but that combined with the aim assist in most FPS games would be way unfair.

    I believe there is an adapter that makes it work but I'm not sure.

    Suck it up. Why would they let a mouse be useable on a console?

    Yeah, I haven't heard anything about being able to do that either.  Quick search on google brought this links up on the first page though:


    They seem to all be about this XCM device.  I've never heard of it, so I'd read through these links and read up about it before making any kind of purchase.
