You keep trying to sidestep the issue to avoid admitting you're wrong. There is no reason this game would be offered on the PC while ignoring the majority of its installed customer base short of laziness from the developer or publisher.

There is no technical or creative reason this game needed to have such poor controls and refuse to let the user rebind keys, none. We are talking pretty simple programming to write entries to a configuration file, I mean it's literally babies first VB class stuff. The problems with the control scheme and interface have nothing to do with its genre, that's a straw man you keep bringing up.

They will almost surely patch-in customized keybinds before or shortly after launch. I guess there's a chance they won't, but I doubt it.

In any event, as someone said below the PC has no standard controls. No, a controller and joystick do not come with a new PC, but neither do monitors or gaming mice or headphones or microphones or games themselves. The awesome part of PC gaming is customizing and the adaptability of the platform. Street Fighter on PC might be near impossible with a keyboard but thank God it's on PC because it looks amazing, runs amazing and the PC has a wealth of controller options.

As much as you and others might want to whine about it, making a PC game that needs or should be played with a controller is just fine. If you are stubborn and will never buy a controller then don't buy the game, problem solved.
