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."

What a silly response, as if affording it is even relevant. The PC is the choice platform, it's all about customization and a personalized experience. People go to consoles for standardization and ease of use. If you want to release products for the PC then generally the audience is more receptive when they are actually tailored to the platforms strengths.

And yes some people like doing weird things playing racing games with a KB/M. Some people here play FPS games with arrow keys and bind things like movement to the mouse. Some people are disabled and need rebindable controls. That's why they are on this platform in the first place. They aren't exactly asking for much either.

TOTALLY -THIS- Thank you Verno!

I have a PC, I want to use its controls. I also don't want to wake up one day, realizing every developer is just going to use the gamepad from now on for PC titles. I'm comfortable with what the PC naturally uses for controllers. People want freedom to be able to bind their keys any damn way they please. If people want to use a gamepad as an alternative, great - have at it! To those games that hardcode their keys and mouse buttons - Fuck them as well. I'm left handed, it's hard enough finding a decent mouse. Let me use the arrow keys, for fuck's sake!
