So I mis-spoke slightly, but I am sure that intelligent people get my meanings.

I do understand that it takes genuine and legitimate development time that should in fact be fairly compensated to port a game from mouse and keyboard to this or that controller.

Whereas.. Porting a game from this or that platform is a 'labor of love' from 'people with passion'.


And the upshot is that if I want to play a game (e.g., Fallout 4, The Sims, Whatever) that I purchased on PC (or Mac) with mouse and contoller.. Then I can't play the game on modern consoles unless I purchase the game for that specific controller and only use that specific controller.

So, for example, I can't play dual-release (next gen console also PC games) with mouse and keyboard on controller. I am not saying it is optimal for all games all the time.. I am saying to let the people make informed decison of whether they wish to purchase whatever controller system they prefer..

Let me buy the game that allows me to pay keyboard and mouse (on Playstation and X box) or let me buy the game that lets me play with the controler GUI on PC if that is something that I think is a better way to play that particular game...
