I bought the Xbox 360 Controller for Windows mainly for this game as the right analog stick on my old XBox controller (w/USB passthrough) did not work on many games.
I love this controller, it feels great and I think the new button layout is awesome.
However, I was saddened that while the default button layout in 'options - gamepads' seemed to detect the button and axes names, the controller did not work at all.
I found this quote on the PR sheet for the controller:
link: Xbox 360 Controller for Windows PRââ¬ÅUbisoft is thrilled about Microsoftââ¬s new Xbox 360 Controller for Windows. Ubisoftââ¬s stunning games, such as ââ¬ËPrince of Persia: The Two Thrones,ââ¬ combined with the ease of use of the Xbox 360 Controller for Windows will enable gamers to take full advantage of the features in both the game and controller.ââ¬Â

I submitted a question to support.ubi.com as to whether support for this controller will be added, but got a response that with so many controllers, the developers cannot test all of them, and I should run the patch (what patch?) to see if it helps.
Will support for this controller be added in a future patch? I'd like to play this game like it was meant to be played, with an analog controller, so I am holding off for a while on playing it until I find out either way. Thanks.
