And PS3.

I sincerely hope I don't have to purchase it again since I own the PC version.

But knowing Blizzard, NOT gonna happen.
Skip_Bayless  +   710d ago
Yes! I get to play a game without breaking the bank on buying a PC, and the hassles of configuring a PC.
HammadTheBeast  +   710d ago
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.
SilentNegotiator  +   710d ago
Why not? They already gave it a console-friendly interface.
Eyeco  +   710d ago
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.

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.
ninavoljic  +   710d ago
fu.ck yeah, the expansion on BlizzCon is expected to be announced.
Persistantthug  +   710d ago
Diablo 3 for the PS3 and PS4 is nice.....
But personally, I'm still looking For Guild Wars 2 though. :)
Dmd  +   710d ago

DudeJets  +   710d ago
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.

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.
Larry L  +   710d ago
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".

And diablo 3 clearly stated a partnership with sony
Software_Lover  +   710d ago
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.
Pintheshadows  +   710d ago
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.

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!!!!!!
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   710d ago
correct me if im wrong but werent a lot of ppl disappointed with Diablo 3?
mi_titan27  +   710d ago
yes compared to D2, but just bringing a Diablo game back to consoles is HUGE
MeatAbstract  +   710d ago
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.
ThanatosDMC  +   710d ago
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

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".

maelstromb  +   710d ago
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!
sithsylar  +   710d ago
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!
ufo8mycat  +   710d ago
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.
jalen247  +   710d ago
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...
