Eagle Eye PS3 USB Adapter: COD Black Ops With Keyboard & Mouse

By Updated on

When is comes to first person shooter games you need to have a steady hand for making those precise movements. However, if you play games such as COD Black Ops on the Sony PS3, then you are limited with the dual-shock controller.

Thankfully help is at hand with the Eagle Eye USB adapter. Most of us will not notice certain imperfections when it comes to playing FPS games on consoles, but PC gamers will know that when it comes to precision – nothing beats a mouse and keyboard.

It is for this reason that those serious about games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops will want to view the video below of this awesome – if somewhat extreme setup. Just imagine how cool it would be to gain an advantage over your friends and get a number of kill streaks in a row? This will certainly be possible when using a keyboard and mouse.

The Eagle Eye from Penguin United can be found on Amazon for $59.99, this could have been at least $20 cheaper. Desz from TQcast believes that although the device is easy to install and precise, the slight lag in gameplay can often be a pain. If you have one then let us know what you think.

      Cheating… you guys are funny. FPS were made for PCs to begin with. I remember way back when the 1st FPS came out on shareware, I think it was Romero or Carmack, and some others were demonstrating how to use the mouse as the controller. Someone explained it like this. The mouse is the top of the characters head and you control the view naturally by moving the mouse around. Back then you didn't need to reverse the y axis, but after I think the original Unreal a lot of gamers got use to moving the mouse up to look up, and that has become the standard, it took a patch to give us back the reverse y axis. I still hold true to the original, move the mouse up you look down, as you would if you actually had your hand on top of the characters head. I suppose you'd call a typist who types with both hands cheating if you only typed with one finger. Console controllers suck for FPS games. After all the whole point is to be able to control the character naturally, not having to act like you are remotely controlling the character with a mechanical device such as a gamepad. The 1st FPS on shareware didn't have the up and down view ability, but 3D Realms did it in Rise of the Triad. Even the original Doom after RotT didn't use the y axis. Autoaim only existed then because of that limitation….but has become a necessity for consoles due to the horrid controller called a gamepad. Don't complain just because you type with one finger. The only thing the gamepad is good for is driving and flying where you are actually simulating the control of a mechanical vehicle. You are dreaming if you think the gamepad is better for FPS games, and you also probably type with one finger and think that is they way to type properly.

    • yeah

      omfg, this is perfect to ownd the poor ps3 players ;)

  • jugs…

    Cheating?… So using a steering wheel for console racing games is cheating too?…

    • Akillez

      Yeah tell them about it. I am with you if using a mouse is cheating then using a steering wheel in the racing games would most def have to be considered cheating.

    Its really poor, i bought one and i can not stand it, its slow to respond, worst thing i have ever bought,

    • Oliver

      Really?! I really wana be able to use my mouse and keyboard for FPS on my PS3. Im much better with a mouse and keyboard for FPS than i am with the PS3 controller. This looked like the only way to play PS3 with a m and k. Is it not worth buying? How slow is it?

  • Craig

      I enjoy the thought you put into this statement. I have been a PC games for years and the only reason I am interested in this product is because not one of my friends play black ops on pc. I now own it on PC as well as PS3 and am well aware of my ability to control a mouse as a natural extension of my body. I am hoping this product will allow me to use my skill with a mouse to succeed and also to not be so terribly annoyed with the two thumb controlled joysticks.

    • mike

      AWESOME, damn noobs dont know anything do they lol

  • jasmin

    do not buy that…every one hate lagg…you can buy FragFX 2.2 or FragFX shark

  • PwNDwN

    Hey people, buy this thing, it rules. Update the firmware and you can adjust x and y axis in game. If you are a technical noknow don't buy it, you will be disappointed. But if if you know your way around computers you will enjoy it for sure.

    Using the Eagle Eye is no way cheating. A top player on keyboard en mouse is no better than a top player with a gamepad. If you whine about getting your ass kicked, maybe start working on some skills ;).

    • Jasper

      "A top player on keyboard en mouse is no better than a top player with a gamepad."

      Ehm, players of equal skill will be so much better with mouse..

  • Sam

    What cheating dude i`m having a hard time to use that dummy joystick ill buy this i play shooting games a lot but im not get used to it yet on this joystick i know people r complaining cause it`s smooth and easy to move and aim by usin Keyboard and mouse better than dummy joystick so let`s rock n roll n have some ass kicked ^.^

  • Umairq

    EE is really good. People who are complaining about the sensitivity don't know about the new firmware they releases to fix that. You can set your sensitivity and deadzones WHILE IN THE GAME. and if you want more sensitivity, buy a gaming mouse like the Logitech MX518 which has programmable sensitivity.

    My verdict : Don't listen to whiners, and buy it.

  • annonymous

    why not just make a keyboard and mouse for the ps3 that requires no pc or configuration,just
    plug in and play smoothly like in the pc,no translations whatsoever.

    • RR96

      LOL

      • CR125

        YOU SAY THAT AGAIN!!!!

    • Stefan C Black81

      That blasphemy haha! Think about it ;- ) But…they will eventualy do that, it wont come by default in the console package, they will be accessories bought from a store …ups I should have not said that now I gave them the idea darn it : -P

  • Webdragun

    It is definitely an interesting option to be sure, I am alittle surprised that ps3 doesn't allow k&m without an adapter. The Dreamcast was fully functional with k&m with no adapter and lag whatsoever. My fear is I'll pay the ridiculous 60 bucks for an adapter and then Sony will fix it. :P

  • j_ske

    I like it and it is the only reason I moved to the PS3 over the PC. If this was not on the market I would still be updating my computers hardware. The mouse does tend to stick/lag at times but not enough to give the EE a bad review. I have not downloaded the new firmware yet so maybe that will fix it, but I dont know that it even bothers me that much to even worrie about it.

  • Edwin

    I got mine and it is AWESOMEEEE…I used a regular mouse and it isn't super smooth but with a gaming mouse it absolutely OWNNNNNNS. There is no chance to miss like a stupid controller like the other person said the mouse is natural feel of controlling a person, the joystick is like playing a person with a remote control it just isn't natural. My friend has the Frag FX and it is good as well, the only difference is if you like the keyboard get this, if you still want a joystick get the FX both are equally as good.

  • Jakobdt

    If you want to play with keyboard and mouse, go get a PC instead! The reason to play games on a PS3 is that you have to use the controller. If somebody runs around using keyboard and mouse, they will have a huge advance in precision, and that will make the game less fun for the rest of the players. This is like buying something to make you better, and it’s really sad if you have to buy your skill..

  • Unoobro

    @142f508162c7d70fd5f18b2a188c363c:disqus Not, lol are you kidding me? The reason people will play ps3 with mouse and keyboard is just to avoid the tons and tons of hackers on PC.
