Kind of like that for the PS2? It'd be great for typing fast in PSO. I know there are stand alone keyboards you can get for the DC but it would probably be annoying to switch back in forth from controller to keyboard whenever you want to talk...

if you have it set up right, so the keyboard is on a desk in front of you it really isn't that bad. Something like that could be made at home though, would just need to take up 2 controller ports.

its not too bad iwth a normal keyboard. i always sit on the floor with it in my lap or in front of me and still play. I never did understand how someone could use a controller like that though lol. I would like to see someone rig one of those up though lol. But all that is available is the standard DC keyboard. There are keyboard adapters so if you want some weird kind of keyboard you can knock yourself out lol.
