    That function hasn't worked as long as its been there. Autoaim is an sv_ variable in early half-life.

    Besides, Console vs PC has already been done. Quake 3 Arena was released on the Dreamcast and a map pack was shortly developed to allow PC's to connect to Dreamcast servers. The rape that followed was hilarious.

    Controllers will never rival KB+Mouse for FPS.

    The game lacks iron-sights. So it looks 5+ years old.

    Iron sights aren't that great. I prefer not having them, otherwise machine guns have too much of an advantage.

    CS came out before optical mice, I specifically remember players making the switch to first gen opticals like the intelli-mouse explorer and the logitechs. They were around 800 dpi. But remember the game still has an ingame sensitivity, I recall most top level players (when I was active in tournaments) using low sensitivity and using relatively big gestures.

    If some people want to play with smaller wrist movements, simple enough to turn up the sensitivity. In all my years as a FPS player I have never once fidgeted with DPI

    have to love how everyone is confusing sensitivity with DPI.

    Yes increasing DPI will increase the sensitivity, but they are not synonymous. Metarinka here came close, I play with a high DPI mouse (4000 DPI) but have the games sensitiviy LOW.

    Higher DPI is primarily meant to SMOOTH the movement, and be more ACCURATE, rather than speed it up.
    think of a 10MP photo vs a 1MP photo. Which more accurately shows the original subject? Or HDTVs vs Standard Def TVs. Which shows smoother, more accurate images?

    You would be dumb not to use a high dpi mouse. Yes the higher dpi increases sensitivity, but both windows and 95% of PC games have a slider to reduce this.

    High DPI is like Anti-aliasing for mice.

    Hopefully they keep the "Player List", Muted option. The good thing about dedicated servers is they have admins that mute players for whatever reason (or for no reason).

    Does the PS3 still only have 1 keyboard/mouse that works with it or will any USB set work?

    I doubt MS will ever give in to SW integration, which kind of sucks. I still love my 360 though.

    I was going to make that dinstinction. the point I was going to get at is that you don't need an X DPI mouse to play competitively, if all the best pro CS players made due with 800 DPI intellimice and the likes than your pidly 2000 DPI modern mouse will probably fare fine. The first thing is very good aim, the second is a good surface. I would say those make a bigger difference than running at 800 DPI or over 9000

    For me higher resolution helps give me more accurate control of the mouse, hence better aim.

    I'm not saying you can't play well with low dpi if you're used to it, but higher dpi does help.
    It's like saying competitive gamers used to play on dial up Internet, so anyone using broadband is wasting their time.

    Just for clarification, in most games my in-game sensitivity is set to below 3. My 8yr old Viewsonic mouse plugged in at that setting is like dragging the mouse through treacle lol.. A full swipe across my 12" wide mouse mat would turn me maybe 20 degrees. I still need reasonable gestures to move around. Not little wrist twitches.

    Ultimately it comes down to personal preference
