They wouldn't even need to develop keyboard or mice specifically for consoles, I can't speak for the 360 (though I am sure it's the same case) but the PS3 can use any bluetooth or USB keyboard/mouse just fine, just like any computer would.There's really nothing you can't do on the consoles today that you can do on the PC. If anything, it's easier to develop for because you don't have to worry about assorted hardware to support.If you want to say that they don't think the market would be good enough, that's fine, but they should say that. Saying something like the input mechanisms on the consoles won't work, because (unless they are talking about the Wii) they can use keyboards and mice just as well as computers. Some games already do, like Unreal Tournament. Heck, FFXI did just that years ago, of course everyone used a keyboard when they played.
