      also i see what they're saying about aiming with a joystick and agree but like do all your employees only play shooters? I can't imagine playing a 3D platformer without a controller. Playing Hat in Time on a keyboard is sin.

    Consoles of today are like PC's in alot of ways but with some caveats. Basically with consoles you're paying for a pre-built PC. And that PC is restricted to its builders ecosystem. You cannot do whatever you want to like with a traditional PC you can only do what is allowed by the builders company. Cant use aftermarket controllers unless they're approved, can't customize your background or themes unless they're approved and bought through their ecosystem. And it's just really restricted and bare bones. But hey! They have great games though! And the console is just a fraction of the cost of a PC! Until you factor in monthly subscription fees, higher game prices, and things like Playstation Now that let's you pay to play previous games on older consoles and various other things. It really does add up and cost more overtime.

    No Offense, but if you're truly disadvantaged playing vs. a KB+M user, it's not the controller's fault the game devs were too lazy to make them equal.
    Doom 2016 and Titanfall are good examples of being equal
    Everything else is the later
    Halo Online and Rocket league are actually the reverse

  • Esperanza Vibes

    I am a pc gamer myself. But I can't stand the idea of making fun of the use of "controllers". This is because of the fact that Ghost recon wildlands, tom clancy's the division, just cause 3 (all beautiful looking games) wouldn't be playable (or not playable per se but fun to play) unless you use a controller. and I do use a controller for these games on my pc. This is just a fact. I get it, I do play warframe, PUBG, as well as fornite on my pc using a mouse. And they do require a mouse on my high refresh rate benq Monitor. But I would never play the division, ghost recon wildlands, and just cause 3 using a mouse and keyboard. and of course I wouldn't recommend any gamers reading this comment to use a mouse for any of the games that I just stated. PC gamers need to get over the fact that not all gamers favor first person games that require a mouse or games like warframe and fortnite. #justmythought

    Game consoles with the a standard controller levels the playing field.why should you have an advantage over another and then claim to be the better player when it's not that your better it's just that you spent more money,it becomes a competition of wealth rather than skill.

    Good video as always Linus but I have a small correction cause it bothered me. Warframe was and is originally a PC game ported to console. Not the other way around. And the game is still developed with pc as a primary objective, and we get patches before console. Just thought I would tell you :)

    Now instead of being weird you're retarded.


    I dont really see the fairness argument between mouse & gamepad. It'd be one thing if it was prohibitively expensive, but you can head to walmart and pick up a keyboard and mouse for less than the price of an official Xbox controller. Its like you're playing baseball and you complain that the guys wearing cleats have an unfair advantage.

    you really don't need a keyboard and mouse for warframe, as it's mostly pve and not competitive. With the PS4 touchpad you can get most all of the keybindings you need to play the game. I also feel like movement using a controller on a game like warframe is more comfortable and more fluid.

  • JayRebel

    That keyboard is a piece of shit. Designed by a non gaming, complete moron. Look at those tall, square edged keys. What the fuck is that? A Logitech K120 is designed better than this Xbox piece of shit keyboard. Literally. Not figuratively.....literally. A fucking K120. Xbox mega fail. For you non gamers, directly up and down keystrokes are slow. Hitting short, contoured keys on the side/edge for quick maneuvers is essential for pro gaming. i'd rather play Blades Of Steel on NES than use this mega fail keyboard for anything.
