Controls aren't the issue. At one point the Xbox 360 port was far enough along that it was playable (internally only, it never reached the point of external testing).

The problem was entirely a dispute between Microsoft and then-owner Atari regarding monetization. They couldn't agree on a way for Atari to make money at it without taking a massive loss over the PC version.

As for PWE, who owns Cryptic now; I don't know if they're pursuing the idea further, although Cryptic no longer has any job openings for console programmers.
