lol, Diablo made a big deal it was coming to PS3, just to have it released as well on the Xbox 360.

Its a business. Theyll go for the money rather than trying pleasing every little fanboy out there.

More like Sony had their press conference first. So Blizzard came on down for it.
BattleTorn  +   819d ago
Correction: Sony and PS fans made a big deal about it.

My question would be is the game going to be identical on consoles or will one console be lead and thus the prefered platform?
brish  +   819d ago
My question is who cares that it's coming to consoles?

People who wanted to play D3 probably already played it on the PC.
tdogchristy90  +   819d ago
Well as someone who loved d1 and 2, I didn't have the chance to place d3 for lack of a pc. So while not ideal, d3 on consoles is an alternative for me.

no they havent, i will play this game now. i dont play games on my pc, in fact i havent bothered to fix it since it broke a couple years ago. i work 40hrs on a pc, dont want to sit at a desk and computer monitor when i get home and dont care enough to hook it up to my tv either. ill take my consoles anyday

I assume it would be easier to port to the 360 as it is the closer one to PC programming but I think they have been working on the PS3 one longer, else they would've announced both platforms from the get go.
Gildarts  +   819d ago
It was a Sony conference.

They were working on it simultaneously as was hinted before the announcement.
despair  +   819d ago
oh yea forgot that.
chela  +   819d ago
better console port incoming!
Tzuno  +   819d ago
I play the hell out of it on my pc already. I will play it on my 360 just for achievements.
DarthJay  +   819d ago
That'll be me but I am not paying 60 for it. I'll probably Red Box it...
Skate-AK  +   819d ago
I'll wait for the PS4 version.
BattleTorn  +   819d ago
Or Xbox One
Skate-AK  +   819d ago
But I am not going to get an Xbox One. Therefore I will wait for the PS4 version.
ZBlacktt  +   819d ago
This is on my b-day.
BXbomber  +   819d ago
oh god....here i was thinking it was ps3 exclusive, oh well i'm skipping this
Studio-YaMi  +   819d ago
Why ? you only buy games if they are exclusives ?? :|

Lot's of great games came to multiple consoles,Diablo 3 was first on PC anyways and besides .. why would you buy it on PS3 when there is a PS4 version in the works ?

Pathetic!
aviator189  +   819d ago
So, you've never played a multi-plat game in your life??
Studio-YaMi  +   819d ago
Doesn't bother me,finished the game twice on my PC,more power to 360 owners & I was still getting it on the PS4,since I've seen a LOT of lag on the PS3 gameplay demo.

Edit :
Ok not a "LOT" but noticable,which still makes it a better experience for me on PC,buying it for PS4.

Why would it bother you? Or anyone for that matter?
Dexter90  +   819d ago
can we match accounts between PS3 and PC and continue the progress? already finished the game a couple times on pc
Studio-YaMi  +   819d ago
That would be too awesome if done well,but they probably won't since the console versions don't require to be always online to play them or have that real money shop thing.
WeAreLegion  +   819d ago
$59.99

Haha.
Commodore  +   819d ago
Who really cares? That game was such a let down to any Diablo fan. 10 years to work on it and I didn't even recognize it compared to D2: LoD. Is it great to have on the consoles? Yeah. I just don't see people who already own it running out to go buy it again. People who never played it will look up the reviews on Amazon and be hesitant to buy it. I just don't see the audience for it.

Yep, the game did sucked. Nowhere near the fun I have had playing D1 and D2. They did so many wrong things with it.
DevilishSix  +   819d ago
My XBL gold membership runs out 9/7 and with all the things wrong with Xbox One and the Microsoft MeltDown, I don't plan on giving M$ anymore of my hard earned money to play online, so I am getting this for PS3.
DarthJay  +   819d ago
Just paid 20 bucks to renew my Xbox Live for a year. It's so terribly expensive.
TronEOL  +   819d ago
I'll be skipping the PS3 version, but I may pick it up on PS4. We'll see tho since I've already bought and finished it on PC.
ramza04  +   819d ago
Best reason to get the console version is there won't be the annoying auction house that doesn't belong in a Diablo game. The auction house ruined the pc version for me . it shouldn't be the be all end all way of acquiring the best items . With the console versions, acquiring loot is going to be alot more like Diablo 2 where u actually have to trade and interact with other players as well as slay demons to get the gear you'll want.

Screw Diablo 3! Gimme starcraft for next gen consoles now that would be pretty nice
