  3. 360 Controller support?

Hey guys, I was wondering if this game will support a Xbox 360 controller. I may get it on xbox, but since this will be a clearly superior version, I want to get it on PC too, the only thing is, using a keyboard hurts my fingers when playing and a controller doesnt. Do you think there will be support for the controller as well as some controller only servers so I dont get destroyed by you guys on the mouse?

You may be able to get a controller to work using something like JoyToKey but I doubt there'll be native support for it since looking around is always hard-coded to use the mouse. In any case, there won't be controller-only servers.

No idea about controller support, but one thing I'd recommend you try is using the controller in your left hand to move and whatnot, and just using a mouse with your right hand to aim. May be awkward at first, but at least then you won't have the aiming disadvantage.

Personally, I hope it at least has the ability to map controller inputs in the menu like BC2 did, since I like using a controller to fly helicopters.

How about a joystick for movement, would that work?

I hope is does, just so I can use mine for piloting helis/jets.

Piloting an air vehicle without joystick/controller of some sort = "oh god how did this get here im not good with helis"

After hearing about the professional development of connecting the Kinect to the PC, I want to play FPS' by pointing my finger at my monitor and shouting, "PEW PEW PEW!!!"

If this game plays anything like BF2 you're going to get destroyed using a 360 controller. Do some finger exercises or something?

^That. Using a controller to play against people using a kb/m will put you at a huge disadvantage.

Anyway, if you really want to try it, you should use Xpadder. Joy2Key just doesn't work well enough to use for an FPS.

Mouse users will destroy you and not to mention there's no auto aim which you will be used to for using a controller.
