XBOX Halo - I need a mouse!

Seriously - Its hard as hell to play FPS games with the controller.

My aim is ALL over.. a mouse is sooooo much cooler.

Can you hook one up? Guess not.

Everyone else is fine? Maybe I just need practice.

Practice makes it easier.

Go into the Advanced controls setup to adjust your joystick looking sensitivity up or down if you need to.

I don't know of any keyboard/mouse plans yet, but I imagine there will be some available sometime in the future.

I think it rocks with the joystick. I never could get the hang of the mouse/keyboard thing. The XBox joystick is a true FPSers joystick.

Yes kb and mouse are the way to go for most first person shooters. I will say that after awhile in Halo the game pad works great. Also I don't think the vehicles would be as cool using kb and mouse. My first few levels I was totally frustrated now on my second trip threw the game the gamepad feels great and I can blast and snipe with ease.

Any FPS is better, in my opinion, with a keyboard/mouse combo. It's probably because I'm so use to playing FPS's on a PC.

There really is no comparison. The person who is good with a KB/mouse will own anyone who is good with a joypad in a multiplayer set-up. However, I do agree that controlling the vehicles in Halo will be a pain in the *** with a KB/mouse. But given that most FPS games are played on foot, I'd still go for the KB/mouse.

*Still has fingers crossed that someone will develop a mouse for the XBOX and game developers actually implement it*

What's the hardest part of adjusting from mouse/kb to XBox joystick? Is it aiming with the clitorisknob? If so, I would say I feel almost as accurate as that as I would be with a mouse. I love strafing and driving vehicles is also very easy.
