Funcom Still Wants Age of Conan on X360, But Controller Remains Biggest Obstacle

The Game Developers Conference doesn't properly start until Wednesday, but companies are taking advantage of the gathered press in San Francisco to show some 2008 wares. One of MTV Multiplayer's first appointments was an updated look at Age of Conan, currently scheduled to drop on PCs sometime in May.

But, it's also coming to the Xbox 360 - eventually. While catching up with Funcom Product Manager Jorgen Tharaldsen, he updated MTV Multiplayer on the Xbox 360 version's progress.

Jeez how many buttons do you need to make a game work?

I miss the days of jump-attack-magic-grab.

Nevermind, the fact the xbox 360 has full usb keyboard intergration and a mounted keyboard for the controller. Any usb keyboard works on the 360, navigating the blade, friendlist, sending messages, chatting in final fantasy online and chatting in phantasy online. And yes I understand the controller itself is the problem. The game is keyboard oriented.

What brand of USB keyboards are 360 compatible? I want to get one.

From the article:

"Not yet. Does the recent confirmed cancelation of “Marvel Universe Online” worry us?"

Marvel Universe Online was amicably canceled due to the economics surrounding the ongoing costs of a MMORPG.

The controls will have to be changed, but there isnt any technical reason why they'd have any trouble at all.

Age of Conan on Xbox 360 == rocks.
