That's a PC accessory to save port space.

No it will not.

actually its not for saving port space... it will use a usb port.  It allows you to hookup a ps/2 mouse and keyboard to a USB port.  It is for laptops mostly btw. 

And no, it wont allow you to use a mouse and keyboard for ps3 games.  This essentially turns a non-usb keyboard or mouse into a usb k/m.  You can hookup any usb mouse or keyboard to a ps3 system, but they don't let you play the games for it.  The game has to have k/m support built in to use it.  The only game I know of that has m/k support for it is unreal tournament 3.

Xim1 (if you only have a ps3) Xim2 (if you have both ps3 and 360) is your best option.
