There are some answers from various posts during 2008/2009 on this subject. Supposedly the control scheme was going to be designed entirely by Reverie?
Is there any confirmation that the control set-up has been finalized for XBox? I believe this may be the one thing that takes a TON of time to get right.
Has the Dev team looked at various control schemes from other games? If not, please take time to watch the following 2 minute video on the "Whip Select" control scheme for the unpopular game "Storm Rise". I have heard the controls for the game were excellent...just that the game itself was terrible.
I don't know if the system itself could be purchased and implemented, or even if it fits with DOF, but who knows...
