Controller Support?Follow

Hey all, I'm new to the forum so I wanted to say hello!

I am very excited about 2.0 especially after all of the changes made XIV 1.xx that made it so much more enjoyable. It seems clear however that the overall mechanics much more closely resemble that of a western MMO as far as the control scheme is concerned. While that is going to impress non FFXIV fans I always personally really enjoyed the use of a controller for FFXI and FFXIV. It , to me, played very much like an offline game in everything from the character movement to camera controls (such games as ocarina of time, mass effect, offline final fantasy games, etc). I don't see it being possible to do both the western MMO control scheme and the current FFXIV control scheme.

Are we going to be losing controller support? I read somewhere that switching between controller and mouse-based play would change the entire UI (and possibly the control scheme?) however this may have only been relating to PC vs PS3. Does anyone have any solid idea if it will still support use of a gamepad?
