Just picked it up earlier. Controls definitely are going to take a while to feel comfortable, but the idea of playing with my non-PC friends sounds awesome. Anyone else pick this up and wanna play?

It took me an hour or two to get the hang of things but after playing all night with an 8-person xbox live party, I prefer it to the PC version's annoying mouse clicking/dragging over every teeny block.

Agree with ya completely, it's much more convenient to just hold the right stick to the right or wherever you want to get to. This was the main thing that kept me from getting into the PC version.

I loved every bit of the PC version until I got the grappling hook. The hook is soooo much easier on Xbox. Loving this game all over again!

Really? Its not super clunky? I figured it would be a mess control wise. I wanna try it but no demo on PSN apparently.

@Demoskinos It is clunky for a little, but once you get used to switching between the two control methods, it is super accessible and awesome!

I got it earlier today. Have been going solo on a large map while waiting for a friend to pick it up as well. Am very much down to play with some of you folks. I clocked in 163 hours on the Steam version and am now trying my damnedest to get used to the new control scheme.

Anyone know if you can play local and online co-op simultaneously?

Picked this up earlier and the controls aren't too bad after getting used to them.

I am loving this. But even after spending 3-4 hours playing it tonight on PS3, I still find myself messing up the stick and d-pad in the inventory.

My gamer tag is CrimePays if anyone wants to play. None of my friends picked this up.

I would totally get it if there were a way to use my PC saves with the XBLA version.

I'm just too deep to even think about restarting.

Hey, I know it's been ages but I got it yesterday if anyone want to play. My gamertag is Alvah Carlos. I don't know anyone else that has it on Xbox and it'd be great to have someone to play with.
