PS4 (Diablo 3)

  • #1
    So my PS4 arrived yesterday, and I have not suffered any of the hardware failures (I made sure to use MY HDMI cable and not the bundled one as I have a suspicion that's the cause ). The UI and beginning feature sets are leaps and bounds above the PS3/360. For example, you can now pair TRUE (no dongle) Bluetooth keyboards.... and I'm thinking you can pair multiple at once and associate them to multiple logged in users. Its also easier to multitask as you can switch between a game application and other applications seamlessly.

    I'll be honest and admit that I only have two people on my PSN friends list, but the system is a million times better than the ps3 friends system. It seems like applications can and do integrate it better.

    That said... about 25% of the reason I bought the ps4 was for Diablo 3 on console. I enjoyed the demo on my PS3, but the graphics limitations and the impending ps4 release prevented me from buying it. In complete honesty, I will not be buying RoS on PC... and I used to be a PC gamer (and that's where I sunk my hundreds of Diablo 3 hours).

    Its not because the console version is better... but because the PC crowd has become too tainted and whiny. Even with only 2 people on my PSN friends list, I would still rather migrate platforms to get away from the toxic, entitled community its becoming.... and most importantly the console crowd is willing to allow Blizzard to attempt to innovate rather than rage about changes from Diablo 2.

    That said... how many other people are planning to buy the ps4 version?

    My path has been: PC - PS3 - PS4
    I've been playing since closed beta, and I play the PC version with and without a controller.

    I feel that my experience with the PC would help me with being familiar with the game play mechanics and the systems they have in place, and I have since switched over completely to play on the PS3 in order to become familiar with the console changes and the controls so that I can get ready for the PS4 version, and also because it's been confirmed that PS3 characters will be transferable to the PS4. (which means that my exclusive items will be transferable too) The PS4 will obviously be an upgrade to the PS3, in terms of graphics, additions to D3, etc. and I'm looking forward to playing on it!

    For me, the ultimate D3 setup is: TV + Playstation 4/Playstation Vita + Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition (pre-order) + Loot 2.0 Patch

    I wish I could buy the vita... but my wife made the PS4 a difficult purchase :(. However, I think I have her convinced on the vita TV whenever it releases.

    I'm totally buying it. Hopefully day one.

    What would you guys say if PS4 had an online-always feature? Just wondering. As I'd still like to have a dupe-free online experience.

    Trading is still a thing in coop and I wouldn't like to play with some guys that have ultra-max gear that is obviously duped.

    I'll be at least lurking. My assumption is that the ps4 version will either cause a worse division against the PC tribe, or it will help heal the rift. I'm hoping that it will be so similar to the PC version that people will get over it.... however, 3 words: PC master race.

    I don't think that will happen. That would require all purchasers to have ps+...

    Im considering on having both pc and ps4 versions of the game,but once its out on the ps4 ill most likely stay with the ps4. it might be just me , but it feels so much better to play d3 with a controller than a mouse/keyboard.....i dont mind either , if d3 on ps4 would be always online honestly, i mostly play alone , but hopefully ill have a few ppl that might join me from time to time, as long as its not laggy on the eu side of things , i have nothing against it.

    I semi agree. However, it's an upkeep fee for your having device.. and our sucks paying for online time if you don't log in.

    My point really is that if they enforced online only... People would be forced to pay a quasi monthly fee to Sony (unless they waived it like elder scrolls online is being allows to do).
