Diablo 3 Console Preview (ITF Gaming)

Bracken Lee-Rudolph from ITF Gaming writes: The Diablo franchise has been a source of great profit and popularity for Blizzard since the first title’s release at the very end of 1996 – at which point, I would have only been a year old. Through two sequel releases and several expansion packs over the following 16 years, the Diablo series has grown into one of the biggest labels in modern gaming, despite only boasting three titles in that period, including the PC version of Diablo 3 – a controversial and profitable game for the developer, and the console version of the original Diablo, which was a disappointing PC to PlayStation 1 port. However, Blizzard seem to have learnt from their previous failings, and while Diablo 3 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will still undoubtedly be the same game, several additions, omissions and changes have been made in order to streamline the experience for console controllers, while still retaining the looting, chaotic gameplay and dark themes that have made the series so popular.
