If you were to look but a few threads below, you'll find that this conversation is already in existence. As for the delay, I can only assume it's because the employees of both 2K and Gearbox hate us on a deep, personal level.

What gaming companies might want to consider is to focus on adding keyboard/mouse control support to their consoles. If you can plug an Xbox360 controller into a "PC," why couldn't you do the reverse?

Many, including myself would jump over to consoles if that were the case...

I think if they added that support, it would probably end much of the crisis and strain of having to port to multiple systems within a deadline crunch.

Just my $.02...

I have been using the 360 controller in borderlands, but I have to plug it in after the game starts, otherwise I get an error. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Why would they add mouse/keyboard support to a console? That defeats the point of a console. Besides, everybody else who will continue to use a controller, because that's what they were used to, will be at a disadvantage. I'm sure you realize it's much easier and quicker to aim with a mouse then a joy-stick.

Having said that, I use my Xbox360 controller for the PC version, and I love it. But that's a disadvantage, and since I accept that disadvantage willingly, whatever. Giving people an advantage is quite different.
