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."

Hey, I respect them for being honest about how little they care about the PC port and how little effort they are putting into it. Many ports you know thats the case and they just don't say.

Doesn't mean I'll buy their crazy always online DRM-ridden stuff, or forgive them for other crap they've done, or pull any punches on future crap. Just means that I give them a teeny tiny bit of respect thats immediately overrun by a tsunami of crap they do.
