Yeah. Sheesh I purchased a USB optical mouse not too long ago for about
$14.99 or so and it was not that big a purchase. Not to mention the fact
everyone buys a computer usually gets a mouse with the system anyway.
What the user does with it after that who knows, but I've heard of many
VI computer users who take them off their computers and stash them away
in a box, drawer, etc and forget about them. Point being chanses are
good the average person has one around somewhere, and getting one is not
going to break a person financially.
Then, game pads and joysticks can be gotten fairly cheap as well. As I
have mentioned earlier on list I picked up a Phillips SGC-2909 game
controller for about $15.00. So, again, not a huge investment to play games.
Well, if we were talking about a really expensive input device like a
Wii controller setup being required, I could understand the argument
about some folks not having a mouse. But you can get a basic mouse now
for less than ten bucks, and if keyboard input looks like it would limit
what I can do with the game, i will probably abandon it, either that or
the keyboard users would be left without the ability to pull off some
combos, which I'm sure they wouldn't like at all.
