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."

Here, let's flip this around and see what console players would think of this:

"We're definitely supporting Consoles, we love Consoles, but I think it'll be Consoles with a keyboard and mouse. I don't see us investing hugely in a controller setup. I think if you want to play on Console and you want to play Assassin's Creed, you have a keyboard and mouse."

I'm not attacking the console players out there, I play console games as well. All I'm saying is, if you read the above statement, don't you feel like they left something out?
