Blizzard talks about console controls for Diablo III

No, Diablo III hasn't been announced for the console just yet but that hasn't stopped Blizzard from teasing it a little. Game director Jay Wilson talked with PC Gamer a little about using an Xbox 360 style controller with the game.

Jay says the game feels even better with the direct control given when using a console controller. Blizzard would also add control pad support to the PC version, but this brings up a possibility of an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 version later on down the road.

Now Diablo has been on the console before with a PlayStation port of the original game, so this isn't anything new for Blizzard. It's just a nice option for those that don't have the PC power to play the game.
