Bungie co-founder: "Nobody wants to" play FPS games with mouse and keyboard

Bungie gave some of the first details of its next sci-fi first person shooter game Destiny earlier today, The game, which will be published by Activision, will be launched as an Xbox 360 and PS3 title and its likely that it will make appearances on next gen consoles as well.

But what about the PC? Bungie co-founder Jason Jones seems to have something of an issue playing FPS titles on the platform that started the genre in the first place. In a quote posted on Destructoid, Jones said that when Bungie first made the original Halo game, they made a lot of design decisions to reach out to a new audience. He said:

We limited players to two weapons, we gave them recharging health, we automatically saved and restored the game -- almost heretical things to first-person shooters at the time. We made the game run without a mouse and keyboard. And now nobody plays shooters the way they used to play them before Halo 'cause nobody wants to.

That's some pretty harsh language and we are sure that the many first person shooter PC gamers that have a keyboard-mouse set up would beg to differ with Jones's statement.
