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."

Will some idiots jump to the conclusion this means no mouse/keyboard controls at all? Clearly. Whatever false information will serve their ranting needs.

Its funny because youre mad about other people making assumptions but youre doing the same thing. Why don't you let other people speak for themselves instead of making assumptions about what they think?

I don't have any of these but the last Steam sale was tempting. If anyone was on the fence about getting this on PC I don't think Ubi is doing a good job of enticing them, thats for sure. Search says AC sales were down with the last game so they should be all about picking up new customers again.

I am a serious PC gamer and I don't own a 360 gamepad. I'm serious about not wanting to use overpriced shitty Microsoft peripherals. The last MS peripheral I purchased was a SideWinder Precision 2 ~10 years ago.

My brother gave me one that broke after two months and the analog sticks would always drift out of place. Not impressed with gamepads and don't really need one.
