Please for the love of all things good, I hope were are able to switch the controls in the final version i.e. having the right thumb stick move and left thumb stick look.

That is the only thing that hinders the game for me. Other than that this games owns.

Ubisoft don't fail me.

stop being a chose, learn the controls, every game will have move on the left thumb and look on the right, why do you need to be difficult.

First of all you don't need to be an @$$

Secondly I'm not being difficult, I'm being realistic because many people like me are left-handed and its very awkward/un-natural/clumsy/problematic to have the look controls being governed by my right hand.

Im sure you will be able to customize the controls.

I cant even think of a single game where that isnt possible.

They just want you to buy the full version, so they take out the features that you really need http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I too think that controls will surely be customizable ( is that a word?). But i can see what you mean by it being hard to control it the way it is. Im lucky that im right handed. i cant think of playing left ts look and right ts move.

I agree, I am much too used to Halo, where the left thumbstick moves the chracter.

I don't know if it'll stay the same, but the ECTS demo had a number of different options and one reversed the left and right sticks.

So, what exactly are the movement controls in the demo??

Is it like Halo?

I'm left-handed and was also very POed that they couldn't be switched, cuz I've learned to play halo left-handed and was very successful over XBConnect at that. I started playing right-handed in both R6:3 and Halo cuz the R6 demo dosent allow for left-handed, and am having an insane amount of difficulty with it. Can someone who's left-handed ever get the same potential aiming ability playing right-handed as left? My guess is probably close, but not quite.

By the way, there is one very notable game that only lets you play right-handed with no customization: Splinter Cell (at least for the xbox version), also made by Ubi Soft Montreal. That wasn't so big of a deal since aiming wasn't quite as important, but still, Ubi is making games for a big market, and 10% of people in the US are left-handed and more than that in other countries, so a little customization would be very nice.

I'm debating now whether or not to learn to play right-handed, cuz I get messed up for halo everytime I play splinter cell, but right-handed I suck at both.

I think this has the potential for a discrimination law-suit. <img src=http://www.gamers-forums.com/smilies/ups/DeNiro/big_toungey.gif>

Er, 'aim with your left thumbstick and move with your right'? That's crazy, get used to the normal way. I'm left handed and so are thousands of people who play FPS.

Good for you, being able to play the "abnormal" way. But aim w/ the left thumbstick and move w/ the right is the "normal" way for me.

Ninja, I think Sabatoge is right. I'm also left-handed, but actually I use the standard configuration. Anyway, I think it's not a big problem to allow the player to set-up his own controls. Maybe you don't want A button for action and you prefer the left thumbstick for that.

The standard configuration is great and most of us will feel really comfortable with it, but there's no reason why not letting the player change it.

All this may be moot as I'm still really sure that an option to fully move the sticks is in the options.

A screengrab in on the teamxbox site today shows the extra options are still present

I'm left handed. never had a problem with any FPS controls,I don't know what the problem is?why would there be any difference if your left or right handed(the pad is the same),explain as I don't really understand?

I knew one guy who had one thumbstick that went fwd and bwd and turned left and right, and he strafed and aimed up and down with the right thumbstick. He did this on Halo. THen he was f*cked when he tried to play a different FPS. I just told him to get used to using the universal style of FPS controls then every game will feel familiar.

Every FPS shooter should have a customizable controller option or a few control "themes"

Couldn't have said it better. In fact, every game should have this feature.
