I don't know what "controller issues" you mean... the PC gives you the option of KBM or gamepad, the console only gamepad... no matter what, PC offers more/better controls.

I agree on DRM though, being sick of DRM to the point of going console is something I can get. Unfortunately though consoles have DRM as well, and someday soon it might bite you in the ass. PSN uses a 5 activation limit for all downloads and Xbox Live ties every download to your account AND machine, causing you to be online at all times on non-original machines and such. And look at how all content from the original Xbox is going down soon, all that DLC and online is dead. The same will happen with the 360 stuff, including all those DLCs and arcade games you got.

Plus I would bet soon consoles will use a Steam-like system for DRM, where you buy a game but need to register it to an account. Doing that with the next generation would not surprise me one bit.

Not true. Only games that have the limitation in place have that, many PSN games don't have such limitation (I know since I shared many of my PSN games). Oh and its 5 accounts/systems, not downloads so you can redownload the game an infinite amount of times on the same account.

yes you get a choice but for many games it is better to use a controller, because the controls are built for that

And you can use a controller on PC, hence my point.

There are a lot of great PSN games, you should look into them. Not to mention all the DLC I guess you are missing out on.

Anyway, I bet DRM comes to retail games on console relatively soon.

I know you can use a controller but to me it kind of defeats the purpose of having a PC with a keyboard and mouse, there is a lot more you can do with keyboard+mouse

to me if i have to use a controller I rather just play it on the console on my 50 inch plasma

How far do you sit from your "50" plasma"? Because my 24" computer monitor is actually larger than my 44" HDTV because I sit a lot further away. I hooked my PC up to my TV the other day for some Assassin's Creed 2 and I was stunned at how much crappier it looked due to the increased distance making the picture infinitely smaller and this I lost a lot of detail.

And more to the point, there are many reasons to go PC past KBM controls.

I am not trying to harp on you, really, like I said I get the DRM thing and I have "gone console" before myself a few times.

I, for one, prefer gaming with mouse+keyboard. I can't enjoy a third person game with a gamepad (well, Devil May Cry is a whole different story ). And the mouse acceleration in Assassins2 is HORRIBLE. The funny thing? The first game didn't have any mouse acceleration.

Seriously, in a technical level, this port is even worse than SC: Double Agent (pop-ups all over the place, low-res shadows in the far away objects that literally destroy the immersion with the dynamic day-night cycle, it is un-optimized (30-40fps in crowded places, regardless of the details and resolution? Come oooooon. Yes it is playable but if i wanted to game with 30fps, i would be getting the console version), the servers are down a lot of times, etc etc

Double agent was actually broken, AC2 plays fine for me. Pretty sure the pop-up is there in all versions.
