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."

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

Seriously, I already spelled it out in detail. Disabled gamers for one. Second this isn't something that needs to be justified to you personally so the attitude about it is kind of hilarious. Some people just don't like console controllers the same way some people don't like KB/M, deal with it. It's the standard input peripheral for the platform, no one forces you to get a KB/M on your 360 to do shit. Hell people didn't ask for games to be built around it, they just wanted proper support for basic stuff like rebinding.

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)

The PC is all about choice, when people want a guided experience where everything is already taken into they have consoles for that. Using a controller is one choice amongst many but that being the only real choice taken into account isn't appropriate no matter how much Tumbler wuvs his controllers.
