Diablo III Fans Are Not Reacting Well To The Game’s PS4 Announcement

One of the surprises at tonight's PlayStation 4 reveal was the announcement that Blizzard's previously PC-only Diablo III will be coming to both PS4 and PS3.

This has led plenty of disgruntled Diablo III players to make themselves heard on Blizzard's official forums. While many simply voice disappointment about seeing a PC-exclusive ported to console, user SmashCrunch articulates a broader, more astute gripe: That it's entirely possible that Diablo III was built for consoles from the start.

It being made for consoles was all I thought of when I played D3 launch day. It made me sad.

more platforms = bigger profits. in the end, money talks

Korix1249d ago

Is it a good thing that Blizzard earns more money to make more games just like D3, that everyone hates?
Blizzard needs to lose money to become more humble - to make games, not because of a greed for money, but because of a passion for games. Something they haven't had in many years now, because of successful they've been economically.

With the kind of fanbase they have, Blizzard doesn't even need to go multiplatform to survive, not that they shouldn't but they're doing fine as a PC exclusive developer.

Actually, I'm unhappy abut D3 coming to consoles. That means they will sell more and give Blizzard more reason to create similar games built on the same basic gameplay concepts and using the same 'market' system.

Two things I really didn't like about D3 was the change in skills to be 'dumbed down' and their focus on a market system wherein they controlled what dropped so as to encourage people to use the market to use real money to buy what they didn't have.

this in a previous article. PC developers eventually head to consoles. there is just way more money to be had. PC games tend to cost around 30-40 bucks. If you come over to consoles, games are costing 60 bucks with a fraction of piracy that pc has.

OT: The Watch Dogs demo may have been running on a PC, but it was a ps4 devkit

well, if you don´t mind of diablo 10-year development period

Mariusmssj1249d ago

I would normally agree but Blizzard and Diablo are well known and among the best selling PC games.
Diablo 3 sold more than 3.5 million copies in its first 24 hours which makes it the fastest-selling PC game of all time. And in November last year it topped 10 million PC sales.

They compromised Diablio 3 every Diablio fan knows it

It's quite obvious that D3's streamlined game design was made for consoles. These design choice ultimately led to the game having a shallow gameplay for me.

But maybe console players will like it better.

LIAR!!! No one played Diablo III on launch day! /s

MRMagoo1231248d ago

Lol the thing is they didnt so there was no need for the /s cos noone could log on for days. I dont think blizz cares much about what the pc fans want considering it doesnt matter what blizz do the "fans" complain about it, take wow for example.

Guwapo771248d ago

TBH, who gives a damn? That game sucks and won't survive on a console...

i understand all the people who were bitching about diablo3 at launch and the problems the game had and i think in some cases its justified but bitching about a game going to another platform i don't quite understand.

Fanboy mentality. One camp loses an exclusive, the other gloats/brags/trolls to fuel the fire, which leads to senseless bickering and pathetic children crying and insulting one another over video games. It's really sad.

As for Diablo 3, I really don't think this game is worth crying over.
