Let's weigh the benefits here. We don't know much at the moment.

Digitally Downloadable (Pre loading un-confirmed)
Comes with all preorder benefits if you buy the deluxe edition in the ubistore: http://shop.ubi.com/store/ubina/en_US/pd/ThemeID.8605600/productID.252073800/Assassins_CreedŽ_III_Deluxe_Edition.html
Has DirectX 11 Features: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_G9FxTZpeNo&feature=plcp (ComicCon Conference)

Some form of DRM (most likely)

You must go to the store to purchase/wait in midnight release lines

I don't see why the controller has to be listed as a disadvantage/advantage considering you can use it for both PC and consoles.

I'd say PC! And I don't think playing with a controller can be a disadvantage for PC gamers, considering it's not too expensive to buy one for you PC! :P I've had no problem playing with a mouse and keyboard but I might have to get used to a controller soon.

I don't see why the controller has to be an issue. I've always played with KB+M myself but I know plenty of PC players use a controller.

As for console players having to wait in line: surely there are stores that send the product directly to your doorstep? I've never bought a digital copy of an AC game before (probably will with AC3 though), but I've always had the games delivered directly to my house.

I would have to debate 'Plays better with a controller', K/M has always worked better for me.

I am going to play it on PC. No matter what.

One obvious advantage the PC version has: superior graphics.

if you have a console, why would you even doubt? the game comes earlier out for you, and there will be much more people online.

I dont have a console, but that smainly because the games i play are pc exclusive: total war, civilization and football manager

The deluxe edition is nice, but a very bad marketing move of ubisoft. I ordered my freedom edition as soon as it was available. i owuld have bought the deluxe edition, but its too late now.

besides, the content will probably be available later
