THE BUZZ: Jay Wilson, Game Director on Diablo III, has revealed how he thinks the game “feels even better” using a 360-style controller.

The PC-centric series is traditionally played with a mouse and keyboard, however the team has been experimenting with new control schemes using a basic controller input instead. The results are promising.

“One of the reasons why we’re exploring the idea of a console version of Diablo III because we feel that the controls and the style of the game lend itself to a console,” he told PC Gamer. “With some of our early experiments in putting a direct control scheme into the game via a 360-like analog controller, I’ve been ‘Oh this feels even better, with direct control…’.”

EGM’s TAKE: There have been many rumors of Diablo III coming to consoles, could this spark the beginning of a move for the game?
