    Anyone know if Torchlight II will support gamepad controls?

    I bought the first Torchlight for both Xbox 360 and PC and while I enjoyed the PC version more because of the easier to use inventory management and modding, the gamepad controls on Xbox was much nicer for combat (holding one button to auto-attack with auto-aim for ranged attacks and analog stick for moving is WAY better than constantly having to rapid click on everything).

    I'm really hoping that Torchlight 2 will support both control schemes, since there's a good chance it will also be ported to Xbox it's not like it'd be much extra work, right? I can't find any info on it though, does anyone know about this?

    its probably a month and a half of development time, if not more. You have the various gamepads to code for support for, you have to design a new GUI, you have to code auto aiming and other stuff to cover game-play limitations. There is definitely more that i don't know and cant think of.

    Short answer: unless they have planned it from the beginning, it probably wont be there on release.

    The Good News: they have said 'you bought the binary, go ahead and play with it', so it could be modded in.

    It was confirmed a long while back that gamepad support will not be in the PC Release. The reasons are complicated and can only be simplified into "It would take too long to add in and would likely mean fewer console sales." Those are my words though.
