Was it ever announced as exclusive to Sony?

Blizzard made a big stink about this being only possible through a "strategic" partnership with Sony at the PlayStation meeting last month. If it turns out to be not the case, then everyone should be called out for it, even Sony...

never read it was a Sony exclusive.
maybe it could be on PS3 but both next gen hardware.
and I don't see Activision turning its back on Microsoft.
I also hope there won't be 3rd party exclusives or content exclusives next gen.

Blizzard NEVER implied it being exclusive. Also to add, there was an interview where it was asked if Diablo exclusive only to Sony. Blizzard stated that, this is a sony event, right now we're focused on the PS3/PS4, if Diablo is gonna appear on any other console, they will announce it later down the line.

So it was never implied to being exclusive, they only came to the event and announced it's being developed on both Sony Consoles. I never heard them say "Exclusively on the PS3/PS4.

With absolutely no information to the contrary certain people are still completely focused on attempting to prove Sony did not score a coup. I am not saying they did merely the latrest round of these "It might/will come to the 360/720" articles reeks of desperation and fear.

Am I supposed to believe these write ups are borne of intellectual honesty and the desire to provide solid reporting to the game community? No.

this is kinda the 1st time I heard "Diablo 3" and "PS4 exclusive" in the same sentence
it sill come out on the 720 too just like Watchdog and the other 3rd party games showcased dusring the PS4 event! it's a no brainer

How can something that is also on the PC considered to be 'exclusive'?
Studio-YaMi  +   576d ago
Blizzard partnership with Sony doesn't necessary mean exclusives,could mean exclusive content or timed exclusives .. it can even mean that future Blizzard project or current ones "starcraft 2" could come to a playstation console or(if they want to) they can make an exclusive game for the PS consoles from now on,although I think that won't happen.

Besides,they never said Diablo III is gonna be exclusive to PS3/PS4 on consoles.

Why would Sony be called out for it when they never said anything about Diablo 3 being an exclusive? Blizzard handled that entire segment, not Sony.
OlgerO  +   576d ago
No and in a inteview with geoff after the PS4 announcement they pretty much made clear that diablo 3 would come to other consoles. This makes it very strange that blizzard said all those things at the Playstation press conference. That guy was either a complete asshole by giving people the wrong impression or their is something going on between the two companies that has not been announced yet.

Maybe it was a Playstation conference and it would've seemed weird saying it was also coming to Xbox and announcing that there.
Daver  +   576d ago
No one should care anyway, the game sucks on PC and it will on any other platforms.
LessThan2Tflops  +   576d ago
Yep I never thought it was exclusive , they never said it was .
AngelicIceDiamond  +   576d ago
No, nor Sony and Blizzard said it was an exclusive.
cyberninja  +   576d ago
Some people still don't know what exclusive means, sigh.....
telekeneticmantis  +   576d ago
I would love it
on PS Vita
IIC0mPLeXII  +   576d ago
Yeah it will be in 360, on like 15 discs, ill stick to the Sony platform for this one.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   576d ago
a man will not be buying this game, but free online would make a man get it for PS3 if he was.
kostchtchie_  +   576d ago
this will come to Xbox, no auction house or connection to B.net, just like ps4, that is reason they have offline mode, and i don't remember Chris Metzen saying it was exclusive, all he did was make some light hearted joke about them and blizzard taking over the world to break the ice coming on stage

kingPoS  +   576d ago
It's funny how some people use pretext over context to deliver the juicy rumors many anticipate.
