I, for one, am excited about the prospect of playing Runemaster on a console. My recliner is very comfy, so living room gaming is nice. :)
Forget recliner, playing from my bed rocks!

It actually plays nice with a controller. We used PS4 controllers at Gamescom when showing it. This was my first try with it, and when I got home and played with the mouse and keyboard it felt weird.

TL;DR It works really nice with a controller

I agree. After having played the game for about 15-20 hours during GamesCom (30-minutes sessions), it was very hard to switch back to keyboard and mouse. Both works well, I think it is just that I became more comfortable with the PS4 controller.

I'd swear I already asked this somewhere, but maybe not: is the game going work with Xbox controllers plugged into my PC at release or will support be added later or not at all?

It will work on day 1. Half the team are actually playing with Xbox controllers as we started developing the game for gamepads from start and the PS4 hadn't been released then.

Definitely plays very well. I've been playing it at Gamescom myself and the controls were very intuitive and actually played really good on the controller.

Damn straight, mouse and keyboard are the only way to play PDS strategy games, but a controller's ergonomics are better than mouse/kb every day of the week, and twice on Sundays. For games that make sense with them like Runemaster, they're the only way I'd play them (noting that there's nothing wrong with preferring a mouse/kb as well :)).

On topic, I deffo reckon it'd be a good idea to get this to XB1 as well - I'll play it on PS4 m'self, but I suspect it'd be pretty cheap and easy to port, and there are a lot of Xbox gamers, so all being well it'd be pretty much all gravy for extra inclusiveness, which has got to be all win :).

Victoria 3 would melt a PS4 down so fast it isn't even funny.
If Vicky 3 is similar to EU4/HoI4 in requirements, the PS4 could handle it just fine - but the interface would be rubbish, and it'd be a mistake releasing it even if it would support mouse/kb, as most people would still be stuck with a controller. I've experimented with Xpadder (a mouse emulator for gamepads) with Civ V and a PDS game (can't remember which one, it wasn't for long ;)), and gamepad with EU4/CK2/Vicky 3/HoI4 would be a mistake. Another issue with EU4/CK2 would be the interface - that text at 1080p on a TV from a couch would be unreadable (I play EU4/CK2 at 1368 x 768 because it's unreadable at 1080p from the distance I play). That said, I would be interested, if it were feasible, in a PDS-style game for a console, but only if it in no way took attention away from the core series (or a new EU:Rome :)).
