Diablo 3 on PS3 and PS4 will allow offline play

Diablo 3 will not require a constant internet connection for local multiplayer on the PS3 or PS4, Blizzard production director John Hight has confirmed. "You can have four people on the same screen - no split-screen, we just zoom the camera out. Or if you're offline,"

Too little too late. Nice to see Blizz screwing about with its oldest (PC) fan base.

I sure do hope this has remote play for play on my vita. SELL YOUR SOUL COMPLETELY TO CONSOLE MINDED GAMERS, BLIZZARD!

Muhahahahaha!!!! ~cough cough cough~

dude, what are you saying?
Diablo was offline on PS One too 16 years ago


great interview!

and I wonder what that surprise game they said at PS meeting...WoW?

ab5olut10n1670d ago

Hahaha, too right. My roomie and I played Diablo 1 on my fat ps3 before it died, hella good game, withstood the test of time.

Too late for what? PC users are the ones that have issue with Blizzard, console users don't have beef and will probably eat this isht up when it comes out.

By the way if anyone was wondering if the PS4 will allow users to play offline, here's your answer. ha!

You talk as though people who game on one don't game on the other. To think there are 70+ million PS3s and none of their owners game on

FYI, John Hight used to be a producer for Sony. Now that I see that he went to Blizzard, this all makes a little more sense. I wonder if Sony will try to get Blizzard exclusivity the way MS has Activation exclusivity.

PS3 & PS4 definitive version?

Coach_McGuirk1670d ago

got 120hz? didn't think so

Blackdeath_6631670d ago

soz i can't relate to that since i'm not a blizzard fan nor have i been a pc gamer for too long. i can understand that your pissed off if they messed up diablo3 on pc i can understand if your still pissed of about that. i don't however understand the people who are pissed off that consoles are getting these features wouldn't it just mean that the next blizzard pc game will also have these features too? isn't that a good thing to see they've learnt from their mistakes? anyhow i'm happy you don't have to always be online that should never be compulsory especially if you have to pay for it (if the xbox rumours hold true)

Only if you guys promise not to steal it. heh

papashango1670d ago

Meh it sold more than any ps3 exclusive on

iamgoatman1670d ago

Well the game sold at least 12 million copies in 2012 (who says PC games don't sell?) so I doubt piracy is that much of a concern to them now. Maybe it's time they gave something back to their original fan base that should have been there from the beginning.

Skips1670d ago (Edited 1670d ago )


And like 12 million more people pirated it. XD

PC isn't powerful enough to handle offline play on Diablo 3.

torchic1670d ago

lol this was a good troll, 10/10 bravo.

I think Diablo 3 will put in the shadow Warrior's Lair.

Warrior's Lair will offer PS3/PS Vita cross play features, if you buy PS3 version you have free the PS Vita version, and hopefully they can implement D3 with PS3/PS4 cross play.

DaThreats1670d ago

Think it will shine on the Vita

Ultr1670d ago

Warriors lair... Yeah that game was once cool. not where is it... it would have been killer at launch, or half year later.. but now...? I dont care about it

Walker1670d ago

Bad news for PC gamers !
