So no micro-transactions and no "always online", they are turning out to be the best versions

Lol yea really and its not even released yet. Hopefully you can't run through this version and complete it in your sleep.

Wigriff1282d ago

Complete it in your sleep? They must have seriously nerfed the difficulty of Inferno since launch, because when I stopped playing 90% of players were stuck farming Act 1 Inferno.

RyuCloudStrife1283d ago

Consoles are better you see?

Ezz20131282d ago

i never played Diablo III on my pc ...don't like it
an will never get it on ps3

but i want to know something ..if i'm wrong someone correct me
isn't it have to be "always online" on pc ?!
didn't that mean the ps3/ps4 versions are beter because they don't force you to be online like that ?!

hkgamer1283d ago

Just wonder how Diablo would feel using a control pad.
never played the cruddy psone version.
would be cool if they had a mouse and keyboard support.

Temporary1283d ago

Iplayed the original Diablo on the playstation with friends. It actually worked very well with the controller, but i would prefer mouse and keyboard support.

MysticStrummer1282d ago

lol The "cruddy" PS1 version was great. It worked worked fine with a controller and I'm sure D3 will too.

probably like how torchlight 1 plays on xbox 360......which is awesome.

@temporary
I heard that splitscreen diablo was a little fun, not sure how it worked though since diablo is definitely a game you need as much field of vision as possible.

@mysticstrummer
Heard that psone version had alot of framerate and graphical problems. At that time I had a LAN setup with a bunch of crappy 133mhz computers, but it was good enough to play diablo. Playing 3-4 players lan was a blast.

To Diablo fans, Is the game fun and does it have beautiful levels? I plan on getting it.

El_Assenso1283d ago

The 2nd the above! Diablo seems to be an interesting game...

Simon_Brezhnev1283d ago

The game is fun its just you have to beat the game like 5 times to get the best gear. So i stopped playing once GW2 came out. I'm debating to get it on ps3 im not sure yet.

Anthotis1283d ago

At least PS gamers won't have to experience the steaming bullshit that is always online DRM.

Conquerbeard1283d ago

Fuck off, Blizzard. You made your PC gamers, the group that made you what you are, suffer through that obnoxious DRM and Auction House bullshit, but console gamers get a pass? That's dirty. Just dirty.

Mikeyy1283d ago

Damn straight! Get rid of the RMAH scam!!

Somebody1283d ago

They can't hear us!!!

There's a huge wall of money (thanks to other PC gamers loyal to them) between us and Blizzard so all our rants and "Fuck Yous" can't reach them. No matter how loud we scream at them that freaking wall is just getting larger and larger.

PeaSFor1283d ago

uh sry but a shit load of peoples have played Lost Vikings, so dont go think the pc crowd should have some sort of favors over consoles.

Conquerbeard1282d ago

Seriously? You're throwing Lost Vikings at me, like that built the empire that is Blizzard? Right.

PeaSFor1282d ago

im sorry to burst your bubble, but without Lost Vikings, your lovely Blizzard studio wouldnt even exist.

Conquerbeard1276d ago

Helping to keep a company afloat and helping to turn that middling company into a monolithic figure in gaming are two different things. But, I'm sorry, PC gaming did way more for Blizzard than consoles ever did. Whatever helps you sleep, though.

KwietStorm1282d ago

What do you mean dirty? I'm not defending the PC version, but its not like they produced it with ill will. And what would you have them do? Should the 'second attempt,' in a completely different market mind you, not be fixed? Should console gamers suffer through the same bullshit? Would *you* wish ill will on other gamers as justification?

The PC version is currently a steaming pile of shit. That being said, they got a new management team on the game that looks promising and through a couple more patches the game may be fun again.

The console version will benefit immensely from the lack of auction house. The PC version is built around micro transactions and everything from quality and drop rate is altered to benefit the real money auction house.

I do have hope that after the next few patches this philosophy ends but that will be yet to be seen.
