Oh My God Yes… Give me Torchlight on my Console

TorchlightIn a brief interview with The Rumble Pack, Torchlight CEO Max Schaefer has confirmed a very juicy detail concerning their recently released action RPG, Torchlight (which we were quoted on the retail box, btw). Now I don’t want to go raising any hopes or anything, but in the interview Max has basically confirmed that Torchlight will be coming to consoles in the future. I believe his exact words were: “We are definitely moving in that direction.”

Anything could happen, of course. This wouldn’t be the first time I’ve heard of a great PC game being promised to come over to the consoles and then just never show up. But the fact that they seem to have a plan in motion to get this port started makes it seem like it’s a definite possibility.

You may be wondering why I’m making such a huge deal out of this. Well allow me to start by saying that, while I love action RPGs and I love gaming on my PC, I’ve always felt like that particular knd of RPG experience has been tailor made to work with a console controller (360 or PS3… no thank you Wii). I can just imagine now, sitting on my couch, and sinking oh so many hours into what I believe is the spiritual successor to Diablo 2.

Good times… now make it happen!
