I've looked into this for the PS3. The console supports the use of standard mice and keyboards via the USB ports, however they only really work for menu navigation and text input in the system menu screens. They don't work in games unless the game is specifically designed to support them. Few are.
If you're really keen on using a mouse, you can (or could... May be discontinued now) buy a very weird and expensive controller whose name escapes me right now, but is basically a standard pad cut in half with the right stick converted into a mouse rollerball and the left looking like the Wiimote nunchuck. I'll Google it for you once I'm off the shitter.

Ta Bruno but i think i will be sticking to PC and the ultimate control system. Been trying to play TF2 this morning using a 360 pad on the PC and i just cant get my head around it. As for actually trying to shoot some peasant forget it.
I was an avid PC CoD player not all that long ago. Switched to Xbox, was shite at first, but you get the hang of it really quickly. Just have to grin and bare it - after two weeks of playing I was just as good as I was with a mouse and keyboard, and now I'm a bit better if anything.
Just got to run through single player on a couple of FPS's and you pick it up mucho quicko.
