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."

Not everyone is able to use a controller or shares your love of them, as has been explained several times already.

Who is not "able" to use a controller? It's built for two handed humans.

That being said games on the PC don't need to live and die by keyboard and mouse controls. I don't think I want capcom building the next street fighter around using a keyboard and mouse. I understand that if I want to play that game a controller is functional but a fighting stick is ideal. (And a keyboard sucks)

I don't want DCS to build that new Mustang Expansion or whatever so that keyboard and mouse are the best solution, I want them to focus more on HOTAS controls.

I may want forza 5 to focus on contoller and wheel support but I'd hate to see them build it around a keyboard and mouse...the fuck would that play like?

It's silly to demand anyone making software on the PC must make keyboard and mouse controls a priority.

If anything you should say thank you for being open and honest about this so that you don't buy it only to find you need a controller after the fact.

Case in point if you care about this Go Buy a Controller.

You have cheaper options as well if you don't mind long cords.

Cross platform games like this should play with a controller on the pc the same way they do on consoles. (would prefer same FOV as well) I want my super console experience when I buy these games. Don't screw it all up by building old school pc controls like it's somehow going to work when the entire game was designed around the controller to be played on a big screen tv.
