Ever wished you could play Guild Wars 2 from the comfort of your couch with the simplicity of a controller? That dream may one day become a reality, if a new, as-yet unused setting that noted Guild Wars 2 dataminer @that_shaman has unearthed is any indication.

Could this mean that Guild Wars 2 is headed to console? Possibly, as adding controller support to the PC version would be a reasonable first step toward a console port, and ArenaNet recently posted a job listing for “an unannounced 3rd person fantasy action console title.” A project of this scale is likely to take some time, so I wouldn’t get too excited just yet, but, that said, it’s certainly an exciting possibility.
Or maybe some programmer at ArenaNet really just wanted to play from her couch.
