You don't have to defend your position.
There is no question that the keyboard/mouse combo offers a level of accuracy not achievable with a game-pad, but there are other factors to consider beyond the competitive one.
My PC is set up in the dining area, and I typically play either on a comfy chair or cross-legged on the floor. The game-pad works perfect for my environment.
And like you said -rumble. This provides added emersion that the keyboard/mouse folks are missing out on.
It's also a matter of what you are used to. Since I've gamed on consoles for years, a gamepad feels natural to me -even if it does make me less competitive.
Changing the subject, I was freaked to hear about the widescreen vertical cropping issue. I feel sorry for 2K. No question they have been burning the mid-night oil to bring this game to market on-schedule, and unfortunately, they dropped the ball.
Since I've yet to get the game (comes out on Friday here in NZ) I'm inclined to just sit on it until a patch comes out.
