It doesn't matter one way or another. PS4 version of Planetside 2 is essentially a stand-alone game with no cross-over to PC. If they decide to use keyboard/mouse great, then it should be sold as a bundle with the game on PS4. If not, great, everyone is using a controller and will be on equal ground.
I think we already have a giant thread on this issue.

I know, but I felt that this survey would quickly drown on the mega-thread. My concern stems from Higby's recent remarks that he thinks that there are console players are just as good a PC players, thereby implying that KBM on console is being considered.

No. Everybody on the PS4 should fight on an equal playing field. Nobody should be able to plug in a mouse and keyboard and be able to outgun everybody else.

Most people with their game consoles will connect them to a TV and never once connect a mouse or keyboard to them because that's not why they bought a console. There will be a small percentage of players who set up their PS4s like a PC and thus have a natural advantage if a game natively supports mouse and keyboard. This isn't really fair and it's not fair to tell other players that they need to go through the hassle of setting up a PC like setting with their PS4.

I have a wireless mouse and keyboard that connect to my PC and a very long HDMI cable running between my PC and my TV. I can't play FPS games on there because of a number of factors. The distance away from the TV makes everything more difficult too see, you're forced into lower FoVs because you're so far from the screen, I find that if I'm not crouched over a mouse and keyboard like at a computer desk my reaction time and accuracy goes all to hell. Given these factors it's really not fair to tell people they have to connect their PS4 up to a PC monitor or small TV and set it up at a computer desk so it plays just like a PC if they want to be competitive.

Simple fix. Don't support keyboard and mouse. Done. There is no point. There will never be cross game play.

It's actually not an advantage at all from my experience. A larger screen is needed if you're higher away but it really comes down to if you can fill your vision with an optimal amount of screen and your FoV/resolution is right for your distance from that screen.

Yes, you should be able to use any input device you wish to use imo. I think it's a bunch of bullshit (other then mouse input for quick/precise aiming) that players cannot be competitive when using a gamepad. If a gamepad user wants to have better aim then use a mouse with the gamepad (no keyboard required).

*If it's such and issue where people will rage quit cause they are at such a disadvantage to people who do use a Keyboard/Mouse/Gamepad combo then just give the option to choose a server that only allows gamepad input devices and another server that allows the use of whatever you want. I highly doubt that this would be needed though.

To keep it real guys, I seriously doudt if PS2 on PS4 is anything like the PC version. It wont have as many features and will probably play like PS1 in its early days.

I think that's good news. I think we should keep our community intact and pops high.

No it shouldn't. If Keyboard and Mouse are implemented for PS2 on PS4 the game will be dead on arrival.

Also saying that you can get a keyboard and mouse to compete isn't going to fly. If conole players wanted to play like they're on a PC they would get a PC.

I'm more curious if they are getting a built in aim bot as most console shooters have.

You mean the quality of life aim assist 99.9% of all console FPS have?

Or do you really want to try to aim at a guy 100 meters away, when he's only a handful of pixels big, with those clunky analog sticks?

I vote for player freedom, it should support as many input options as possible.

Totally agree.

Played Dust 514 with m/kb and it was way more fun. Still don't like the game much but it was better with a m/kb setup.

I plan on playing PS2 on the PS4 some because many of my friends don't do PC gaming at all, so I do want the option for m/kb.
