I love Gameloft's games, but I don't like them. The update to MC3 for Retina is awesome, but when I try to customize the controls I can't move them past half of the screen which makes the game bad for me. It's been at least 2 months and no update, they don't care at all. I'll get Nova 3 but don't expect post launch support past 1-2 patches.

Anyway, I'm really hoping and I am almost sure this will have control customization like in MC3. That thing really helped me in the game.
Actually, keyboard and mouse can turn faster if you turn the mouse sensitivity up. I've always found controllers to be slow and inaccurate.

Consoles are still fun to play with friends, though.

I don't ever think I can use a keyboard and mouse... Too hard for some reason. Maybe im just used to controllers though.

I think what it comes down to is personal preference for controls. I play with Gamepads, K/B mouse and of course touch controls. Each has it's advantages/ disadvantages. The keyboard/mouse is great for FPS games because of its accuracy, Gamepad for its comfortability. With touch control there is a bit of both.

As I mentioned in a previous post, you do get used to touch controls. I find them more intuitive than any type of controls. What I like most about the touch system is that sense of control, you get when your playing games on the iPhone. If you get the system down, your reactions can be extremely quick and that's a blast when it comes to gaming.

No I meant with console controls you can turn faster than with touch screen And yeah, they're still better to play with friends.

It's pinch to zoom. Just pinch out/in on the button your moving.

Counter-strike pros have mouse sensitivity at around 0.1-0.4, because they have such large places for the mouse. It lets them snipe efficiently, and aim accurately. The dedicated guys bind [ and ] to the keyboard so they can change sensitivity on the fly.
