Blizzard has never been afraid to experiment. Part of that process for Diablo 3 involved looking at different control systems including seeing how the action would work with an Xbox 360 controller.
This is amazingly awesome to me, as I've always wanted to use an X360 controller to play a Diablo game. I remember playing the first Diablo title on PlayStation and it worked surprisingly well.
Yeah, it felt natural when I played Diablo on the PS. But, I feel I have more freedom with mouse and keyboard. Can't wait for the release of Diablo 3.
i dont see why this cant work, as quite few games that are similar style to diablo have worked well on xbox 360, for example torchlight is a big success.
I am not saying it won't work, because it will, but I have Diablo and Diablo II on PC, and I will stay with the mouse and keyboard for this installment as well
Well said, I 100% agree... I'm the same way for other game series too (like GTA, Resident Evil, etc for consoles only; MOH and to some degree, COD for PC only).
Agree bro well said.
Hooray! I love being able to use the Xbox 360 controller with PC games. The constant clicking with mouse in Diablo I and II not only wore out my mouse but my wrist. I really hope that they actually implement this for PC.
