    My point was, second half of this year could mean right now - > 31st December. We just don't know.

    Woopidoo, those two COMPLETELY different statements mean so many different THINGS!
    Oh wait, it's just Maklor trying to be "right" as always, your attitude is quite annoying.

    Anyway, to get back on the Comic-con topic: I doubt we, the lurking fans, will get anything from the convention, as many has said before me. Hardcore fans might be disappointed, I am one, but still see why we won't get that much new info. Realize that comic-con isn't a gaming convention.

    I understand that, but as i said the statement from the developer was that they were aiming for a closed beta before the end of the year which would indicate pretty late in the year... also we discussed this way back several times (when that video was released - I think it was on that German GW fansite that I can't recall the name of right now).

    Something that dawned on me...only 10 useable skills at a time, don't need to be targeting enemies to hit them, would it be possible then to play GW2 with a console controller?

    You can't deny that wouldn't be awesome

    Actually it's my fear that they would make console versions.

    Don't see it releasing before Q1 2012 honestly.

    Here's to having a beta announcement next month though. *crosses fingers*

    Theres a difference between useing a controller on a computer and playing a console. I dont think they will make a console version.

    Ability to use console controllers could be added in later by arenanet or some random on the internet

    With XB controllers working with Windows machines, I really don't think it's a far stretch. Although by using a remote you're missing out on some skills unless you remap some directional keys or the analog clicks

    I think for wow people could use the triggers or bumper or whatever there called has alt keys so i dont think you would have to miss out on much

    I won't ignore users because that can stall discussion. Can't believe no one pointed him out before on being a complete dickwad. Oh well, let him live in his bubble where he is always right.

    EDIT: Having a 360-controller would actually be pretty awesome I think... That's a really good suggestion that someone should bring to ArenaNet's attention!

    Agreed, and I actually think several people (including me) have. I've never been too keen on using controllers for PC games, give me my trusty mouse n' keyboard. But I see no reason why it wouldn't be possible to use one for the game. As long as there's no full port to consoles...

    Yes we know Maklor is a scholar in Douche baggery and always has to be right
    Example:

    Then a dev quote gets linked where they say second half, making this statement false
    And he continues to argue

    Well to be fair, there was another statement about "before the end of the year," (may have been the investor conference call? CBA to check) so he's not completely wrong. But yeah the subsequent argument was just completely unnecessary and uncalled for, particularly when they're essentially the same.

    I played DCU:O with a 360 controller, and I tell you that made playing the game 100% better. It still got boring after a while, but it was fun while it lasted.
    If GW2 did this I'm sure it would certainly improve playing the game.

    Not sure what your issue is, but don't call people names.

    Everything I said was true, I was not disputing what he said I merely added that from what a dev said the beta would probably just be later than what he thought.

    Gentlemen, the petty banter between each other needs to stop. No sense arguing with fellow GW2 enthusiasts, especially if we ever want to make an mmo-champ GW2 guild

    I've never played an mmo with a controller before, but the idea is sound. For example, a PS3 controller, there's exactly 10 buttons, for 10 possible skills. Left Analog stick for movement, right analog stick for camera control, select button to change weapons, start button to bring up menu screens, I see no faults here.

    Thanks a ton! That is exactly what I was after. I'm glad to see it is the mesmer. I played a ME/NE for a while in GW1. I might not have liked the game a whole lot, but it was a pretty serious threat in guild battles. However, this was when a monk ball could win battles.
