Chris Metzen, representative from Blizzard Entertainment, has appeared in a shock at the PlayStation meeting and has revealed that Diablo 3 is coming to PS3 & PS4 within the near future.
I sincerely hope I don't have to purchase it again since I own the PC version. But knowing Blizzard, NOT gonna happen.
Yes! I get to play a game without breaking the bank on buying a PC, and the hassles of configuring a PC.
I didn't really like Diablo 3, hopefully its better with new patches. Anyways, when PS4 comes out screw Diablo, I'm gonna be all up on Killzone, Infamous, DriveClub and all these other amazing games.
Why not? They already gave it a console-friendly interface.
I'm a bit weary about Diablo 3 it doesn't seem to be very popular with the PC crowd from what i've seen on forums and videos, which is a shame because I really enjoyed the first two back in the day, I've always had a soft spot for dungeon crawlers.
Blizzard wants to use Sony and take over the world supposedly o_0;
@skip_bayless but diablo 3 is not that power hungry like ALL blizzard games.
I called Diablo first here on N4G! Who is nuts now? Mwahahahahaha!
I want to pre-order already. I was thoroughly impressed and I'm still hyped because this seems like a prelude of things to come. Hints point towards E3 and PAX.
fu.ck yeah, the expansion on BlizzCon is expected to be announced.
But personally, I'm still looking For Guild Wars 2 though. :)
That'd be The dream!
May happen active accounts on pc has dropped hugely the game was a bit of a flop after there overhype. So I expect it to be consoled.
is guild wars any good lol jw.
I have a feeling this will play better on console than PC simply for the improvements. Torchlight 1&2 proved these type of games work and work very well on consoles so I can only see more in the future. Also I can see some Blizzard Multiplayer games coming to PS4 as well.
What the.........? What proved that isometric action rpgs work well, and when done right are actually better to play on consoles? Torchlight, you say? Was the xbox 360 you got in 2010 your first video game console? I'm pretty sure it's been proven many times over and over again by quite a large number of games dating back to.....oh gee, i don't know.....some of the first consoles in console gaming history, on just about every console platform between then and this "Torchlight" game you mention.........if that IS it's real name. You ever hear of Baulder's Gate Dark Alliance or perhaps Champions of Norrath? The Marvel Ultimate Alliance/X-Men Legends games? Sacred? Dragon Age? Diablo 1 was amazing on PS1. You can go back to how amazing Gauntlet was on the horribly simple NES, this is LONG before the genre became a PC staple. You can go right back to the original Bard's Tale which was on the Ataris and Comadores. "The console" is this genre's original home, and just because DIABLO hasn't been on consoles since PS1, the genre itself has been alive and well on consoles. And IMO Torchlight, especially the 1st one, was just a fairly generic game among the jewels of the genre that have been on consoles. Sorry.........it just chapped my arse that you used Torchlight as "proof positive".
Is this real life? Have i died and gone into the great PS cloud above?
Or is this fantasy? O_O
Caught in a landslide, No escape from reality
Open your eyes. Look up to the sky and see
Nearly had a heart attack when they said Blizzard. But hey did say they were looking at a possible console version. There ya go.
NEXT GEN Psn features Dual Shock 4 Destiny Diablo 3 Drive Club Killzone 4 I DOUBT MICROSOFT CAN TOP THIS
Do you enjoy stiring up the fanboys? or are you just 1 of them? Never assume anything.....
for 4 years Lack of Exclusive ttitles besides Halo/Forza/Gears/Fable/Kinect games. If the no used games shit is true FAIL!!Always connected! WHY?
*Devils advocate* Next gen Xbox live features New Controller Destiny Diablo 3 Drive Club Halo...... Sounds about equal with just those, lol
Remove Drive Club. Sony owns Evolution Studios.
Why would drive club be on a MS console? Sony owns evolution studios.....
And diablo 3 clearly stated a partnership with sony
I understand drive club/ replace it with another driving game. Bungie also said partnership with Sony, they are still making the same game for Microsoft. In the end, my main point was, you could pull nothing from this web meeting. Now if this were E3, we could compare side by side, fact by fact. To say another company was destroyed because of this list............ is absurd. I dont care if the roles were reversed, because some people seem think you are a fanboy if you say anything negative about one company. This was mediocre.
If you lived up to your name 'software lover' then you wouldn't be calling this mediocre, you'd be thrilled by what we saw. And by your own logic, mediocre compared to what exactly. As you said, we have nothing to compare it with. Now don't get me wrong, I understand what you are trying to say but it is also very contradictory. We just saw the first glimpses of the next gen and someone has already labelled it 'mediocre'. Huzzah for the internet. I just wanted to add that if they get the 4 player splitscreen co-op working well, this could be the hackin', slashin' and lootin' version of Micro Machine V3. Diablo 3 is no Diablo 2, but as a couch co-op game I can imagine it being hours of fun.
But remember everyone know that xbox is the best entertainment platform /s
Diablo 3 ...PS4.....E3 in Febuary
I was hoping for a new title, but good for those who didn't play it on PC.
OMFG!!! This is sooooo amazing!!! Oh man this is such a great news I can't stop smiling
well pc gamers, at least you got crisis 3 graphics to look forward to which doesn't look half as good as killzone on the ps4. :(
Hell of a presentation. Sony just murdered the competition. Oh and the PS4 will be getting exclusive content for Destiny by Bungie when it's launched. M$ just lost a big one there. PS4 release date confirmed holiday 2013!!!!!!
correct me if im wrong but werent a lot of ppl disappointed with Diablo 3?
yes compared to D2, but just bringing a Diablo game back to consoles is HUGE
It was kind of a mix from the fans. Some old school fans hated it, some loved and some new fans plain just didn't get it. The launch didn't help as well. Still, Blizzard continue to patch it, have fixed it, are trying to balance it out, they've brought in PVP. If they have worked hard on the controls and made it work well with a controller then it should be good. Also if they can introduce Battle.Net with some kind of cloud or integrate that with PlayStation, you could potentially cross platform but that's just own my opinions on the last part.
Yeah, but Activision wants more $$$$$. Diablo 3 is more WoW than actual Diablo. They also had a blog on D3 site that they wont put it on console. Damn liars. Game is unfinished. Check out the funny comments on Battle.net http://us.battle.net/d3/en/...
I called it earlier on here about diablo 3 coming to playstation 4
Blizzard said a long time ago that they were looking into console versions. But they mentioned the 360 originally.
With The Cronus Adapter. I can Use my Keyboard and Mouse
Blizzard and Sony will change the world... after 3 minutes - Diablo 3 lol
I was disappointed after hearing Blizzard's big claims. Seriously, Diablo 3?
We know about this gonna happen guys just remember,some stores had already put it on display http://n4g.com/news/974668/...
lol pointless at this point
With Blizzard jumping on the console wagon - is the PC market really dying?
damn it must suck to be an XBOX only owner
Thats why you buy both . Win, win
funny how that works , eh? ;)
Wonder if it will be cross platform between PS3 and PS4.
Blizzard-dude didn't rule out an Xbox-version when specific asked about it at the Gametrailers after talk. He said something like "this is a Sony-event, so we won't talk about other things".
ALL i want to know is can i play this in offline mode if so well then its 10 x better on console then 300+ ping pc.....
You console people really aren't missing much even if they do bring D3 to consoles. The game was a fun distraction for a little while, but it was rife with imbalance issues and boredom/tedium ultimately set in fairly quick. I bought the CE, played through the game once and then about a 1/4 of the way my 2nd playthrough, then shelved it. Haven't looked back since and no part of me wants to revisit it. Tbh, it was the marketplace that undermined the entire game and drove my long term interests from the game--in other words, since you can logon to the marketplace at any moment to buy whatever items you haven't found in-game, it effectively makes the game pointless considering the entire premise of Diablo is centered around found loot!
I just want to play it without lag like 300+ ping..... If i can do that on console i will give it a shot if not then next!
Wow - PC is becoming more and more irrelevant. First The Witcher 2 become available on 360. Now Diablo 3 for PS3. These were the last games I even touched on my gaming PC. Now they are both on consoles, making the PC even less relevant. Those who havent played Diablo3 will really enjoy it. Fantastic and addictive gameplay.
I will skip Diablo III on my PS3 and get it for my PS4. Not getting any cross generational games on my PS3. Its all about the PS4 now...
