Blizzard has been teasing a possible Diablo release on consoles for a very long time and today is no different it seems. Blizzard may not be ready for an announcement of any kind, nor are they willing to confirm anything it seems but game director Jay Wilson has had a bit of experience with Diablo 3 using a console controller.
Speaking with PC Gamer, Wilson revealed that the company has been holding experiments because the team seems to “feel that the controls and the style of the game lend itself to a console.” Things seem to have done well because the tests have been successful. “With some of our early experiments in putting a direct control scheme into the game via a 360-like analogue controller, I’ve been ‘Oh this feels even better, with direct control…'”
Of course there is still no confirmation, and in fact Blizzard may not even have gamepad support or anything similar to that when Diablo 3 is released on PC admits Wilson. Even if it is accepted at some point he says that “initially with release I don’t think we’ll be ready.”
