Question Will Planetside 2 be playable with a gamepad / xbox 360 controller?


A friend of mine is thinking of playing Planetside 2 when it comes out. The main problem is that he uses a laptop.(im sure it can run PS2.) So it would be kind of hard for him to be killing some terran scum using a finger scroller.

So the main thing i'm asking is, is Planetside 2 compatable with a gamepad or xbox 360 controller? or has this info been released yet?

Thanks for yalls help.

Buy a mouse? Beyond that I'm hoping that we have so many hot keys that playing it on a controller other than a Nostromo will be severely gimping you as a player.

Probably if not just get a cracked xpadder and map them out yourself.

Why would you want to? It would be a huuuuge handicap. Just get a decent mouse and you're good to go.

to answer your question OP that info has not been disclosed yet

But i am sure it will likely be controller friendly as devs now a day know some people like to use controllers on PC games.. which means more players for SOE etc.

Wrrrry

Seriously, you can buy like a really decent mouse for £15. A wired 360 controller costs like £15-20 and they will put you at such a huge disadvantage.

The only reason for a controller is for flying, depending on how the physics feel.

XBCD also works for 360 controllers.

Mouse will be more precise and less clumsy. So unless you plan on flying the whole time, get a good mouse.

You could always just set the controller aside when you exit a vehicle.

Would be interesting to see the controller being used with Vehicles, i would at least try it.

i really hope they do allow gamepads, because i have no experience using mouse/key boards in fps. besides, my hands aren't built to play games using a keyboard

The OP is talking about using it all the time though. PC FPS should never be used with controllers because unlike console there is no aim assist to compensate.

Yeah I wouldn't want to be stuck against pc infantry players with a gamepad. i don't think you would stack up too well that's for sure.

But to each their own, if that's the way some people wish to play and it can work properly, why not?

I would still like to see gamepad support if only for vehicle use.
