New PS3 Device is Compatible with Mouse and Keyboard

PS3 shooter fans have a lot to be excited about. The new Penguin Eagle Eye Converter allows a PC mouse and keyboard to be used as a controller for the PS3. This conversion is supposedly lag free and delivers a new precedent in precision and accuracy.

The technology was demoed at E3, where attendees praised the smooth transition from the controller. By surpassing the need to use a PS controller for the console, a new demographic of gamers can be reached. This is especially true when you consider the sheer number of PC owners who refuse to game on consoles due to the simplified control schemes. The device was tested on popular First Person Shooters like Killzone 2 and Modern Warfare, and the reception was positive.

Aside from video games, the converter is also integrated into other PS3 features like web browsing and messaging, an added bonus for those who chose to forgo the $49.99 keypad for the controller. The converter features adjustable mouse sensitivity and works with any and all USB HID mouse and keyboard peripherals.

All PS3 controller buttons are mapped to the keyboard and it also works with analog mice. A really cool feature is the ability to program button combos to Macro functions. The converter works with all existing PS3 models. The retail price of Penguins’ Eagle Eye Converter is $59.99.
