I read that quote as

"We're definitely supporting monetization of a console port to PC, we love to cut corners for your money. I don't see us investing in what the consumer wants. I think you'll buy this on the PC just because it's Assassins Creed. You need a controller."

These guys.

quote Some Idiot
...if you want to play on PC and you want to play Assassin's Creed, you have a controller."
I have a superior "controller" already, thanks. It's called a mouse n keyboard.

Get the *bleep* outta my face, Ubisoft.

You know, I was surprised when I read the title.

Then I remembered that UPlay crap and the DRM of the past few games.

Keyboard and Mouse is like a Bible and Cross for PC gamers...Also, I think a controller is not too expensive for PC gamers....

It's not that it's more expensive. The point is that you can't claim to care about PC gaming, when you don't want to support the main controller the system uses. It'd be like them saying "Oh yeah we care about consoles, but we won't be directly supporting the 360 controller itself, we believe any true 360 player uses a fighter joypad for their RPG games".

Lorx Did they ever get Uplay up and running? I remember checking the Uplay store last year and it was still stuck at "coming soon."

Appears to be up, I only ever interacted with it as the pre-loader for (at least one) assassin's creed game.

Was hoping Ubi would get better over time, but I guess I'll end up skipping out on AC3. While the gameplay was fun, I have half the series and there's more than enough room to Faff About within them. Just doesn't seem worth it if Ubi's going to do a terrible job at the port.

Once it releases there will be a release from Ubisoft blaming piracy for poor sales.

To me there's no argument here. Ubisoft has weighed the pros and cons of investing further in their PC ports. PC gamers understand Ubisoft doesn't have their best interests at heart, hell Ubisoft understands it. As such, it's almost inevitable that either Ubi just drop their PC ports or new management comes in and reevaluates their PC strategy.

Would be unwise to fully drop support, with PC being such a growing market.

Anyone on the PC who enjoys indie games has a brain big enough to know that a controller is about as necessary as a mouse is for an FPS, which is a lot of people I would assume. I personally have 3 controllers for my PC. Just dual monitor with your HDTV (Assuming you have one) and you've got yourself a better console than even the next generation of PS4 or Xbox 720, today.

This is just plain stupid. This kind of happened with Sonic Generations, where the PC version used the Xbox 360 control scheme.
