The only reason console can be more interesting to play on than a computer is for games that you want to play multiplayer at the same physical place. BUT, if they only developed some cool gadgets to enable your computer to connect to you tv with a plug for 4 controllers, then there would be no more reason for that.

Also, whatever you say, a decent computer for gaming cost more than a console and has to be upgraded more often. So if you are ok with the quality you get (and for many games it's all ok) then a console has some good sides.

But I am much more a pc gamer than a console gamer since the end of my super nintendo!

They already have this technology...

It's called a small PC with a USB hub.

Also a PC costs less to upgrade than a console does.  When you upgrade a console, it usually involves buying a new, better one and tossing out all your games and peripherals.

also a GTX 560 Ti, a graphics card that is almost 3 years old is more than capable of running Crysis 3 on high, with DirectX 11 enabled.

So I don't know where this misconception comes from about having to upgrade a computer more often...

The reason I see why we have to upgrade the computer more often is that new games for pc are most of the time made to run with newer computer and newer hardware so that in the end, when you computer is 4 years old, you can hardly use it to play new games, unless you upgrade it.

The ps3 and xbox 360 have been there for much more than 4 years. BUT, well new games on these consoles had to live with this old hardware too, so you get what you get...

Still, if there were no consoles and the pc was the default platform for games at home, well it would improve a lot of things as far as game availability, hardware availability, etc.

I used to use Windows 2000. It's not actually that bad. Not much modern software will run on it, but it was fun to play NWN on! We could only play mechwarrior 4 on the XP machine, though.

I actually haven't tried 8 yet. I'm curious to how bad it would be with a mouse and keyboard.

It seems horrible at first, but once you get used to navigating without a Start menu you'll probably like it...

You don't even need to use the metro interface. Just download a start button for it and it's great.

"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I used to use Windows 2000. It's not actually that bad. Not much modern software will run on it, but it was fun to play NWN on! We could only play mechwarrior 4 on the XP machine, though.

IT'S CERTAINLY MUCH BETTER THAN WINDOWS 8, ISN'T IT?

If Windows 2000 is so good, how come it doesn't have a spot in your signature?

I couldn't find a Windows 2000-related picture that would fit in there well.

LOL I turned signature viewing off.

PROBABLY BECAUSE YOUR SLOW MAC COULDN'T HANDLE ALL THE GIF IMAGES IN MY SIGNATURE.

It can, but your signature made my eyes bleed.

THAT'S BECAUSE SAFARI WON'T RENDER THE IMAGES RIGHT. MY SIGNATURE IS INTENDED TO BE VIEWED ONLY WITH INTERNET EXPLORER, YOU KNOW.

LOL I'm using Chrome.

Try again.

THAT'S STILL NOT INTERNET EXPLORER. YOU NEED TO USE AN APPROVED BROWSER TO VIEW MY SIGNATURE CORRECTLY.

That's the point - I have turned signatures off, so I don't need to see them, consequently I am not constrained by any particular browser requirements.

And btw Internet Explorer did run on Macs - back in the old OS 9 days (pre-OS X).  My old PowerMac AV8400 something has Internet Explorer on it.

INTERNET EXPLORER DOESN'T RUN ON TODAY'S INTEL MACS WITH MAC OS X. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE MAC OS X IS TERRIBLE! IT'S NOT EVEN GOOD ENOUGH TO RUN IE6.

You feeding the troll, son?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Reason: I can play every game I've purchased for the past 10 years on it. You can also use emulators for those older console games.

I agree--it should work fine! And don't be scared of breaking keyboards anyways...I do that all the time! Being scared is for wimps. And don't be a wimp--use Windows 98 instead!

I thought that you were on 2000????

I run 'em both. I've got machines in my personal fleet of computers running Windows 3.1, NT4, 95, 98, 2000, XP, 7 and 8. The Windows 3.1 one is the best hands down. And Windows 98 and 2000 are a very close second!

I'm not scared of breaking a keyboard.  I am scared of breaking my Ergodox... It is not just a keyboard.... I love it.....

I used to use Windows 2000. It's not actually that bad. Not much modern software will run on it, but it was fun to play NWN on! We could only play mechwarrior 4 on the XP machine, though.

IT'S CERTAINLY MUCH BETTER THAN WINDOWS 8, ISN'T IT?

If Windows 2000 is so good, how come it doesn't have a spot in your signature?

I couldn't find a Windows 2000-related picture that would fit in there well.

LOL I turned signature viewing off.

PROBABLY BECAUSE YOUR SLOW MAC COULDN'T HANDLE ALL THE GIF IMAGES IN MY SIGNATURE.

It can, but your signature made my eyes bleed.

THAT'S BECAUSE SAFARI WON'T RENDER THE IMAGES RIGHT. MY SIGNATURE IS INTENDED TO BE VIEWED ONLY WITH INTERNET EXPLORER, YOU KNOW.

LOL I'm using Chrome.

Try again.

THAT'S STILL NOT INTERNET EXPLORER. YOU NEED TO USE AN APPROVED BROWSER TO VIEW MY SIGNATURE CORRECTLY.

That's the point - I have turned signatures off, so I don't need to see them, consequently I am not constrained by any particular browser requirements.

And btw Internet Explorer did run on Macs - back in the old OS 9 days (pre-OS X).  My old PowerMac AV8400 something has Internet Explorer on it.

INTERNET EXPLORER DOESN'T RUN ON TODAY'S INTEL MACS WITH MAC OS X. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE MAC OS X IS TERRIBLE! IT'S NOT EVEN GOOD ENOUGH TO RUN IE6.

Let's keep this chain going! Let's make this the most nested conversion in history!

Does anyone know if the ERGODOX is compatible with Playstation 3?

I want to test it out, but i'm scared of killing my ergodox...  I don't give a sh17 if I break my Ps3.

I think the Ergodox should act just like any other USB keyboard to a computer/gaming system. Why not plug it in and find out?

You CAN buy an Ergodox (PCB).

And so what if the ergodox breaks? If it gets shorted or something, all that will happen is it'll fry the controller. The PCB's and key structure should be fine. Just swap controllers and you'll be good to go again.

this desoldering job is quite hard, there are many pins, and you might fry the traces.

You CAN buy an Ergodox (PCB).

And so what if the ergodox breaks? If it gets shorted or something, all that will happen is it'll fry the controller. The PCB's and key structure should be fine. Just swap controllers and you'll be good to go again.

this desoldering job is quite hard, there are many pins, and you might fry the traces.

If that's the case, I'd put fuses in the wires that hook up to PCB to avoid frying it in case of overload.

But plugging it into a USB port will not cause any harm. All USB ports run at the same voltage  and put it out at the same pins. I can't think of any way it could hurt a keyboard.

I used to use Windows 2000. It's not actually that bad. Not much modern software will run on it, but it was fun to play NWN on! We could only play mechwarrior 4 on the XP machine, though.

IT'S CERTAINLY MUCH BETTER THAN WINDOWS 8, ISN'T IT?

If Windows 2000 is so good, how come it doesn't have a spot in your signature?

I couldn't find a Windows 2000-related picture that would fit in there well.

LOL I turned signature viewing off.

PROBABLY BECAUSE YOUR SLOW MAC COULDN'T HANDLE ALL THE GIF IMAGES IN MY SIGNATURE.

It can, but your signature made my eyes bleed.

THAT'S BECAUSE SAFARI WON'T RENDER THE IMAGES RIGHT. MY SIGNATURE IS INTENDED TO BE VIEWED ONLY WITH INTERNET EXPLORER, YOU KNOW.

LOL I'm using Chrome.

Try again.

THAT'S STILL NOT INTERNET EXPLORER. YOU NEED TO USE AN APPROVED BROWSER TO VIEW MY SIGNATURE CORRECTLY.

That's the point - I have turned signatures off, so I don't need to see them, consequently I am not constrained by any particular browser requirements.

And btw Internet Explorer did run on Macs - back in the old OS 9 days (pre-OS X).  My old PowerMac AV8400 something has Internet Explorer on it.

INTERNET EXPLORER DOESN'T RUN ON TODAY'S INTEL MACS WITH MAC OS X. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE MAC OS X IS TERRIBLE! IT'S NOT EVEN GOOD ENOUGH TO RUN IE6.

Let's keep this chain going! Let's make this the most nested conversion in history!

Does anyone know if the ERGODOX is compatible with Playstation 3?

I want to test it out, but i'm scared of killing my ergodox...  I don't give a sh17 if I break my Ps3.

I think the Ergodox should act just like any other USB keyboard to a computer/gaming system. Why not plug it in and find out?

I just said, I'm scared of breaking my egdx

If it is a USB keyboard, and a regular USB port on the PS3, there is practically no chance that it will break your ergodox.

I agree--it should work fine! And don't be scared of breaking keyboards anyways...I do that all the time! Being scared is for wimps. And don't be a wimp--use Windows 98 instead!

I thought that you were on 2000? ???

I run 'em both. I've got machines in my personal fleet of computers running Windows 3.1, NT4, 95, 98, 2000, XP, 7 and 8. The Windows 3.1 one is the best hands down. And Windows 98 and 2000 are a very close second!

I'm not scared of breaking a keyboard.  I am scared of breaking my Ergodox... It is not just a keyboard.... I love it.....

Just plug it in! It's not going to break it.


totally. It can't possibly break. If it does, just buy a new one. (Why don't you have more than one, anyways?)

You don't just "buy" an ergodox. You've gotta wait for a gb and then assemble it yourself.


I agree though. It's not gonna break.

What the heck? Desoldering through hole pins is not hard. And if you do fry a trace, you can greenwire it.

Why not.

It's gone a fair way off topic and struggles to get back on topic.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada
