I'm pretty sure when MICROSOFT pulls the plug on something that's not just 'opinion'.

Nice try though.

I don't think most people need to push 10 keys at once, but they do need to be able to push 10 different keys all within a second or two.

I know PS2 isn't L4D2, but when I play L4D2 scavenge mode I definitely push about 10 different keys all within a few miliseconds of eachother, and many of them at the same time.

That was the authors own conclusion, I can make my own assumption as well. Why would Microsoft spend extra money on dedicated servers (which would be required for cross platform) when Xbox live generates plenty of users on a peer hosting network.

Once again, you fail.

Cross platform doesn't mean dedicated servers at all. Not every PC game has them or uses them, so your conclusion is invalid.

Your arguments pretty much boils down to: "Yes, a Honda Civic can beat a Bugatti Veyron in a drag race."

Have you no common sense?

"But there's no evidence!"

Have you EVER played an FPS before? hahah I can't take this thread seriously. You are delusional.

Regardless, it's not getting put in game so at the end of the day, nice try.

If people want to play with controllers they should probably be supported. However, even the most mediocre kb/mouse player will dominate an experienced controller player, there's just no comparison whatsoever.

There is evidence for that! Haha wow you must really be retarted. Both of those cars have been rigorously tested with published statistics and facts. You are argueing something that has neither. Show me the statistics, the tests, the data, until then you are just a troll with no proof.

Edit: and it's not getting put in the game? Have you read any of the dev quotes I posted? Or can you even read?

I don't really understand what Kush is arguing other than "But there's no evidence!". Kush is right that there is a shitstorm of opinion and bias out there, but you and I can see and feel the difference and how obvious it is. Some folks will fight tooth and nail even though they are wrong.

I'd love to get a group of people together to do a study on this since I find it fascinating. I have a degree in Human Centered Design and Engineering, but we never tackled issues like this.

Yep. You're right. Sorry I was doubting you. You can out play any PC player with your game pad. Live your dreams.

You sure love using the word "retarded"...

Ironic, isn't it?

Good look dominating k/b on a PC made game, though. You're only creating extra trouble for yourself... machochist?

Again. Use a gamepad on TF2/DoD/Quake/CS, please. I'd like to see your beloved statistics against k/m players.

Here's a good comparison video.

If that doesn't make it obvious... I don't know what does. Seriously, play with the controller if you like, but good luck. You don't have to admit that one controller option is more precise than the other. That fact will be made clear out on the battlefield.
