Probably would, it's cashing in on additional sales, they'd be stupid not to. I doubt they'll ever bring a Starcraft game over, just like Relic keep their strategy games off consoles too, but Diablo is at least playable with a controller. They'll port it over. Runic managed to make Torchlight handle decently on Xbox, Blizzard can do it no problem too.

The Pc just isnt the most confortable gaming platform for me.

Nothing beats sitting in the couch witha nice HD TV, a controller and not having to worry wether windows is gonna crash on you or if your parts are good enough to play the game at an acceptable performance. Console gaming is more cozy and enjoyable.

With that said, it misses the vital components of a keyboard and mouse, wich makes the PC a better platform for online gaming.

How many JRPGS have there been on the PC in the last few years?

Like, 1. Maybe 2... Okay if you like JRPGs, PC isn't for you.

But people are forgetting you can plug in your PC to a TV, it just requires one cable; plug in a controller, get a wireless controller, Xbox ones work instantly, or get a wireless keyboard and mouse etc. and then play on the big TV and sit on a couch. Or do what I do and buy an armchair as your desk chair. Comfiest thing ever.

I'm assuming that it's Illegal and you downloaded the game right rather then buying it.

People forget that PC can do pretty much everything if you take some time to work it out. People whining about backwards capability, PAH! we can play every single PC game ever made, PS2 games, Gamecube, PS1, NES, SNES, Game Boy... hell, any game if your PC can handle the emulator.

I've never hooked up my PC to my TV, I might start doing that. It's rare I play games with a controller, so for the few that I do, might be a cool experience.

Yeah you can't emulate them yet, and we're nowhere close either. As I was explaining to people in the backwards compatibility thread, emulation isn't anywhere close to being simple. PCs that can play Battlefield 3 and Witcher 2 maxed struggle to emulate even PS2 games, let alone a PS3 game. It probably won't be achieved till we're perhaps playing on the PS5 and Xbox 1080.
