Diablo 3 For Consoles?

  • #1
    Hey here's another short news story I wrote about whether or not "Diablo 3" will make it to consoles. How do you guys feel about it? Would you rather play it on an Xbox or PS3?

    Nice article. Short and sweet.
    Diablo will go out for PS3 likely with an announcement shortly before the announcement for a PC Expansion. PS3 because Sony is a lot friendlier then Microsoft and their system is a lot better for developers that patch their games a lot. Microsoft offers 1 update to the game for free after which you have to cough up a lot of money for every consecutive patch, because of their servers. Sony uses a cloud so patching is no issue on the PS3.

    Also Sony, Valve and Blizzard are some of the companies that are really working on making cross-platform play, meaning PC players will be able to play with PS3 gamers. That would be excellent for Diablo.

    I'll be playing on my PC but a console version would be great for those that don't have decent computers. If it were to come out for consoles I'd also love to see cross-platform multiplayer. Assuming you'd have to connect to Battle.net anyway, I'd think this would be theoretically possible

    Without cross-platform multiplayer, I'd probably end up buying it so I could play with my console buddies.

    Not really a story yet.

    Console Diablo is at least 2 years out, and still far from certain.

    Blizzard has a very, very mixed record when it comes to collaborating on IP outside their walls in the past decade, and this is a function of their culture.
