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," (Blizzard, Diablo III, PS3, PS4)

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

While I can't relate with all that.
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~

=)

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 PC...wow....really?

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?
taiyed80  +   553d ago
got 120hz? didn't think so
Blackdeath_663  +   553d 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)

Meh it sold more than any ps3 exclusive on pc...lol
iamgoatman  +   553d 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.
Skips  +   553d ago
^^^

And like 12 million more people pirated it. XD

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

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.

Ultr  +   553d 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

i want to play this game on my vita
but i need to have that ps4 first ^_^
landog  +   553d ago
console is a completely different platform, not everyone with a ps3 has a stable and constant internet connect believe it or not, most people with a gaming pc do

can't we (as pc gamers) just be happy for ps3 people??

i didnt hear ps3 and 360 gamers crying when we got dark souls with a ton of dlc for half the price (and it looked way better after Durante fixed it with his ultra high res mod)

i'm glad console gamers are getting it, diablo 3 is a great game, my wife and i played it and were absolutely addicted for a good 40 hours

have fun with it guys, play it with some friends or family, its WAY better that way!

I tried going back and playing it alone a while ago and it was just kinda, mehhh....I mean, its a great dungeon crawler, best thing since baldurs gate dark allience and champions of norrath on ps2, but like those, so much more fun with your friends/family

Where is the real landog O.o

I played the demo and it seemed ok however I went with Torchlight 2 for the mod support and offline play.
landog  +   553d ago
hey man im serious about wanting everyone to enjoy all games, if i was a billionare i would put gaming rigs in everyones houses who wanted one, and get ps3's for kids who couldn't afford them, or 360's and 3ds's

i know i defend pc all the time, i just get tired of all the misinformation spread about my favorite platform,

but i'm a gamer, tonight, before bed, i'll be playing a psp game, i played disgaea 4 after dinner for about 45 min, then, i played crysis 3 multiplayer with my brother on pc for a while
(btw, multiplayer in crysis 3....ehhh.....it sure looks pretty maxed out but...i dunno, maybe i gotta give it more of a chance,)

anyway, i know i come off as a console basher at times, but i love my consoles, i'll be getting a ps4 day one as well, very impressed with the sony day 2-20, cannot wait
Bladesfist  +   553d ago
Good to hear it, PC is my favourite platform as well and I took my turn of defending it from all the misinformation but now N4G seems to have too many crazy PC elitists, glad you are in the rational camp.

I had enough hack'n'slay games after playing d3 and torchlight II.

I'm not pissed that d3 comes to ps4, just disappointed blizzard hasnt made some new stuff... yeah i know, keep on dreamin
TemplarDante  +   553d ago
Now I will consider this :)
Sorry pc guys, if you want to game offline in Diablo 3, console is the way to go :)

This is the number 1 reason I held back buying on pc.
chobit_A5HL3Y  +   553d ago
i hope they bring tera to ps4 o3o
NeoTribe  +   553d ago
I would love to play d3 on ps4, problem is im sure they wont let me use my pc blizzard account. Theres no way in hell im startin over. Got like 200 hours on my demon hunter as it is.
telekeneticmantis  +   553d ago
This sounds
pretty good.
kevnb  +   553d ago
consoles themselves are already enough drm.
josephayal  +   553d ago
The best version
pennywhyz  +   553d ago
Blizzard makes low spec games for lower end PC's.PC gamers dont care about blizzard their games have been going to shit anyway.DIABLO 3 IS NOT WORTH $60.

diablo 3 was bad for a blizard game, but would be awesome for most studios.
R_aVe_N  +   553d ago
I am going to say this is a timed exclusive for PS3 and PS4
IcicleTrepan  +   553d ago
I think you are probably correct, it's either timed, or they're just not talking about the 360/720 yet. All the rumors from months ago were that they had a working build already running on the 360. I have it for PC already, and I would buy it for xbox if some of my friends did, it would be a fun game to play on Live. I'm sure it will be equally as fun on PSN but I don't have as many friends that are using that.
extermin8or  +   553d ago
Reason why is because the PS4 is a new console and therefore harder to pirate for than pc, plus even if it was hacked who is going to be willing to burn/download such a large game...
