Don't pretty much all current-gen consoles have the ability to use USB mice and keyboards?

Forcing people to use mouse and keyboard on the console would kill the game. Having played a cross platform mmo (final fantasy xi) most console players would swear by using their controler, even though keyboard/mouse was a viable alternitive and far superior. Even when they had to switch to a keyboard to type they would go back to the controler afterwards. Most people playing console games want to be lazy, kick back on the couch, and play their game on their 50" television. Keyboard / mouse prevents that, therefore will always be shunned in the console world.
