I just switched over from PC to xbox, as my PC probably won't run 3 and I don't want to buy a new one, and the game transfers pretty well, but I did have one issue with the layout. I can't really sprint and look around, since holding down RT and A and using the right joystick is near impossible. This is really obnoxious during chase sequences. Is there a silly way around this which I am missing, or any way to alter the controls? Thanks.

I mean, yeah, to move, but on PC it really helped to be able to change direction while runnign and look in different directions. I got really used to it, and taking it away bothers me a lot. Do I just need to get used to it?

I guess. I've been noticing that the xbox version also seems to auto adjust the camera for you every once in a while. It's odd when I'm doing it on my own, but when I'm not, it actually helps a lot.

Yeah, that really bothered me when I got an Xbox controller for AC2 and ACB's horrible mouse acceleration. It was better than having to move my mouse 10 feet to look 2 feet, but it was not fun getting used to the inability to run and look.

This also demonstrates exactly why Ezio abruptly turns around and runs the opposite way when you move the camera too far to one side: his movement and the camera are linked, for the benefit of people using a gamepad.

Controller wise? The left stick is character movement and the right stick is the camera

What I do sometimes is I use my nose for that, it's a little hard to master but once you get the hang of it, it works.

I don't know. The PC definitely lets you be more free with the camera, so I think you'll just have to get used to it.

Post PC specs and I'll tell you if you'll be able to run it.
