I was wondering if Blizzard will include this option? There are a few games that support this feature and it would be great for Blizzard to include it on release.

I doubt it will be included on release, but I won't be surprised if you can when/if the console version comes out.

If they don't have a WASD control option, why would they have a console controller option?

if you get a controller, I want WASD movement!

Actually, it could happen. Ignore the haters.

Jay Wilson:

“... 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…’”

“I can pretty much guarantee that if we decide to do a console version that we will look to support a pad on the PC,” says Wilson. “But initially with release I don’t think we’ll be ready.”

Yeah this is that part I don't think Blizzard should do. Console platforms are great for FPS, but not 3rd person god mode games. I understand that Diablo is not so much of a god made 3rd person game like Command & Conquer or Age of Empires or such, but it still is a game that is much better with a user control interface using a mouse and keyboard. The speed and requirements on the user of this type of game... is not something that a console can compete with.

Just my thoughts.

“One of the reasons why we’re exploring the idea of a console version of Diablo 3 because we feel that the controls and the style of the game lend itself to a console..."


I think I'll their word for it at this point.

they have decided since those last quotes they need to redo the entire system for the console so it can work, since you cant really plant targetted area spells and stuff right, and will need to make the game a bit easier to compensate for the crappy controls of a controller so you dont just get overwhelmed and die.

i doubt it will ever come to pc cause its going to be a very different game so the controls wont carry over between versions because they had to change how the spells work and stuff.
