Hellos. I'm not trying to start an argument on how much better the mouse and keyboard is for playing games.

I play all my games on my PC, that being said, I hook up my PC to my big-screen in the livin' room to play games and it's MUCH easier to use my wired 360 controller while trying to relax on the couch.

Since DX:HR is being developed for the 360 as well as the PC, I'm hoping that the devs will add native support for the 360 controller on the PC version of the game.

I know it seems like common sense but Modern Warfare 2 for some reason did not include native 360 controller support.

Anyway, I hope this finds its way to the right person.

Hm. I'll see if I can't wrangle an answer out of Rene for you, brother.

No need, Romeo.

Of course it will have controller support. Confirmed.

Oh, why thank you Beastrn. May I ask where you got that? I'm feeling a touch uneducated now. =P

If it's a Games for Windows game*, which most PC games are nowadays, it'll have to have 360 controller support, it's a Microsoft TRC.

*And by that I mean using the Games for Windows branding on the box, not necessarily that it uses Games for Windows LIVE.

Considering how easy it is to support 360 controller under DirectX, especially if you are already porting from 360, it'd be a crime not to.

Yeah, as a matter of fact, Rene just told me he's quite sure it'll support it.
