The controls, the movement, but especially the shooting, just looks so janky...

 

I don't understand why they used a controller for the stream. Are console ports even on the table?

I've learned that all we've seen in the presentation will be playable in 3.3 / 3.3.5 .. so apparently for the first time, what we've seen aren't just future dreams, it's actually very, very close. And if the new container streaming *really* works as they say and fps gets doubled... it might actually be very playable for the first time as well.

I heard this was just to make it easier to look at since mouse movements can be twitchy. I think it was quite clearly visible that the bloke doing the demo is not a gamepad player.

Agreed. That's the problem with mouses being precise, it creates an issue, especially if you want a video to look smooth vs janky as hell.

I assume that's why most people who play a more complex space sim prefer a joystick or controller over a mouse for the driving/looking around?

The reason people use joystick or analogue sticks for sims is because it gives you resting position, dead zone, and degrees of motion from rest. You can perfectly virtually emulate this with the mouse but physically you do not get the same feed back.
For the demonstration they probably just didn't want to switch between pad and mouse, they didn't do much outside of vehicles anyway.
