A little XBox 360 Controller for me. :)

On a related note, it's always a good thing to be able to bind keys/buttons the way we like. FO-UC lacked this, hoping it'll make it in on NCG.  :-[

I've got an Xbox 360 controller and a Logitech G27 racing wheel, though I can't use the pedals on it as there isn't enough space under my desk for me to get adequate leg-room (boo!)

Corsair Graphite 780T & Corsair H100i liquid cooler
Intel i7-3930K @ 4.2Ghz
16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro 2x8GB DDR3 2400Mhz RAM

256GB Kingston HyperX 3K SSD & 2TB Samsung SATA HDD
Asus Rampage IV Black Edition
27" Asus VS278Q (1ms)
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1

Gamepad, because it's PC game. If it came to consoles I would play it with wheel because I have my wheel setup at my TV, and it takes too much effort for me to bring the wheel to PC.

Since it is going to be quite arcade game, I voted for gamepad. My opinion is: definitely not wheel! I tried Flatout 1 once with my Driving Force GT and didnt like it at all. Wheels belong to simulators, gamepads to arcade. ;)

But still I think you should make a wheel support for the game.  :)

Been playing with a Keyboard since I started playing FO1. (Which is influenced by the fact I've never actually owned a wheel and still don't really plan to get one.)

I'll probably be using an Xbox One controller; that'll probably/hopefully be out for PC as well by the time NCG launches.

Wheel controls have just never made sense to me, considering the arcade nature of the Flatout games, but hey, if NCG gets Oculus Rift support I'll dust off my G25 for sure.

As much as I loved playing Flatout 2 with a wheel on LAN with my friends when we had a school computer lab all to ourselves... I don't have a wheel anymore. I'll be playing with a keyboard, and a wheel is currently pretty low on my to-buy-if-I-have-money-to-spend list.

I don't really understand the point of this poll, though. You're going to support all three anyway, unless you're jerks which I know you're not. From my experience (I've had a bit, not a ton) fine-tuning controls is not that time-consuming. I don't see what difference it would make to development.

Mainly Xbox 360 controller, but I will probably want to bust out my Steelseries SRW-S1 from time to time.

Why would you get Xbox One controller for PC when you can get Xbox 360 controller for cheaper, and it works in all games?

They look like they're going to be more comfortable to use than a 360 controller, and also the wired 360 thumbsticks are bad, my thumb keeps slipping off of them.

Also PS3 controller can be used like X360 controller with Motioninjoy.  :) I use PS3 controller in every game I play on PC.
