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."

Factor in the extra DLC sales that come from having a larger install base on the XBL and PSN networks and the PC gets dwarfed even further in terms of revenue as the publisher gets a lot larger share of the DLC sales than they do for the retail sale.

I know you're talking about Assassins Creed but just wanted to say that the PC probably has a lot more digital customers than the consoles do. Steam has 35 million active accounts, the conversion rate of console users who do stuff on XBL and PSN probably isnt even close to 1:1.
