Great game, these are the types of games MS should try to hold on to to claim an advantage over the PS4. Sadly, since lems are so lame and MS keeps free games like this behind a pay wall, probably no one plays games like this on the Xbox.

I've got a bunch of friends who love it. Personally I couldn't get into it, I got bored with the grind. Good for PS4 players though.

That timing though, It's like they are doing this on purpose to piss on Blizzard lol. For the record, I always found this game to be better than Diablo 3 anyway.

This is a great ARPG and it deserves to be on the most platforms as possible.

You don't want this on consoles (and many PC games like Divinity Original Sin, Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2, etc).

This is not Diablo 3 which was made with the limitations of consoles in mind since scratch (and you have the results). This is the evolution of Diablo 2, even in PC these games are hard to play, with many micro-management, which demand some planning (means more comfortable to get a build planner, or at least a Word or Exel document to take notes), and the most important, a plethora of external sites, the most common is the commerce, like poe.trade where everyone can see your item in a website, with a finder, comparing it with others, sorting by desired stats, etc, but there are also much more external sites needed, to know something so simple to what is the DPS of a weapon (pointing the weapon, ctrl+c, then go to the site, ctrl+v to paste in it, and calculate), to crafting (ej. vorici calculator). Also you will be most of the time selecting from myriad of items on the floor to choose only few per run. Also there are so many keyboard commands to be impossible to translate it to the gamepad in a comfortable way.

But don't believe me, go to the Xbox forum and see the stupidity of their problems, since the complete useless auction house, which can't find items, and with few items, and ultra expensive, to problems in party, or even in something tan simple (but vital in an online game) as chat.

Xbox version was perfect... to bring new players to the real game on PC. :)

I wouldn’t mind seeing this come to the Xbox One.

Edit: Nevermind it’s already out on it.

Free to play indie garbage should only be on PC though, PS4 doesn't need these filler games since PS4 has enough high scoring AAA exclusives unlike PC.

Don't listen to the M/KB sadists, PoE, much like D3 just plays so much better with a controller, akin to Gauntlet almost.

I grew up playing D1, D2 on PC, and I played PoE originally on PC.

But it is so much better with a controller on a big screen while sitting on your couch than crouching over your mouse and keyboard clicking away like a adolescent who has just discovered pornhub.

by better you mean some skills having to function totally different or being unusable? then there's the trading...

Huh, if you take out Indys for both systems PC is still quite a bit ahead for high scoring games. That's not hard with a 100 point lead.

But on your point, I find PoE to be quite a bit better than UC4.

Lmao.

The only reason roll exists on the console version is because you can't make the same twitch movements as you can with a mouse, and the aiming is just crap in comparison to the point where something abilities are reworked.

Then there is the Inventory management.

Yea, its an easy enough game to make work well on consoles, but this "better" nonsense is just that. nonsense.

His statements in the form of opinion are correct (apart from that obvious pornhub troll), if he finds it more fun that's fine.

But objectively speaking he is DEAD wrong. They had to change density and difficulty for consoles due to what you mentioned. And many skills. Some class builds simply are nearly unplayable.

ARPGs like this are better on kb/m factually speaking. The ability to aim at one corner of the screen to the other in a literal fraction of a second is what makes the extremely high key/map plays.

@zaryia

some very valid points, honest never knew about the modification to density, etc to be honest. Some builds in D3 (dashing strike monk for instance) are only doable on M/KB, but any spin-to-win builds are better on a controller.
