Ubisoft: Play Assassin's Creed 3 PC With A Controller

There's a preview of Assassin's Creed 3 on GameSpy with quotes from Ubisoft Montreal Creative Director Alex Hutchinson about what to expect from the stealth/action sequel. The author deserves extra points for the concluding Q&A expressing skepticism that the PC edition of the game will be released alongside the console editions. On another PC-related topic, they learn that their professed "love" and plans for "supporting" the PC does not include putting time into mouse and keyboard support (thanks Destructoid). Here's word:
Sadly the PC version won't get much special treatment, he admitted: "We're definitely supporting PC, we love PC, but I think it'll be PC with a controller. I don't see us investing hugely in a mouse and keyboard setup. I think if you want to play on PC and you want to play Assassin's Creed, you have a controller."

Then WTF is the point JackWeeds?

I think his point is basically "We don't care about the niche hardcore PC market". It's a console style game, why not play it with a console style controller? Back in the day if I wanted to play some kind of action game I'd grab my MS Sidewinder game pad. If you play a driving game don't you grab a wheel?

It's not meant for the super elite hardcore pc-gaming crowd. It's a console blockbuster that you will probably (hopefully) be able to play with better graphical quality on your pc. If you can afford the latest and greatest super HD video card and you like these type of console blockbuster games then you should be able to afford (or already own) a modern gamepad. That's what the PR guy is getting at.
