I think you need a /s tag. If you want to play Fall Guys with a keyboard and mouse you are going to have a bad time.

It lets you use a K&M without other people knowing. It still shows up as you using a controller. So you can go play on CoD lobbies with other controller-only players.This was more relevant before the consoles starting to allow people to use K&M. Some may argue this is cheating, and they are probably right.

it most certainly is not a grey area lmao. You can be banned for using such hardware. It is part of game and console TOS and EULA.

It's 100% cheating, no grey area about it.

It gives you an advantage that isn't normal and available to all players. It's like calling turbo features of controllers a grey area. Except it's not, it's cheating.

The only grey area is where you use it. Playing offline and by yourself, that's fine. Playing online in competitive scenarios, that's 100% cheating.

Really? Then why does Sony have their own branded version?

Seems weird that it is against the TOS when Sony has a branded one.

That's just an overpriced game pad/mouse combo. It doesn't tell the system that it is a controller, which is the argument re:cheating. It would function as a keyboard and mouse. The controller emulator gives you access to controller-specific tweaks that games have like aim assist, which combined with mouse aiming is practically aimbot and ruins competitive integrity.

Actually it does:
Quote :
The mouse emulates the right analog stick for precise aiming, and left analog stick input can be set to either the WASD arrow keys or analog thumb stick on the TAC Pro keypad,
This controller can be used for any game on PS4 and PS3 even if the games does not support K&M. No game on PS3 has this support to my knowledge so it goes to say that this acts like a controller and not K&M to the console. Also Fortnite has a checker to see if people are using these devices and blocking them. This Sony one is also being blocked. Another example that this is acting as a controller.

Finally you can see in this youtube video that CoD Warzone is showing the controller buttons in the UI and not the keyboard:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4IF0hbAKMAE

If it was seen as a K&M then the UI would show the keyboard controls.

I am not saying that using these devices are okay, just that they do not violate any of Sony's policies.

What games on Xbox One can you use a keyboard and mouse?

I'm a long, long time PC gamer but it seems all my friends have moved to consoles. I just can not adjust to controllers, would love to join up with them and play again.
