Well put LesiU.
I think the point CdnRacer is missing is that controllers are the way we interact with the game.
The more controllers we can use the more immersive the experience.
We all know cars/racecars have a steering wheel, pedals and a gearshifter.
Do you see any of them with a keyboard to control everything else.
I think not.
As long as I see people wanting, what I call 'fluff', eg: animated arms, animated pit crew etc I will carry on my call for less limitations on controllers like iRacing have.
And no. I'm am not an Iracing fanboy, rarely use it actually.
I'm hoping an ISI member can give us a detailed reply, more than just "4 controllers will be supported", when they return from their much needed holiday.
