Review: Diablo 3 | Xboxer360

Leigh of Xboxer360 writes, "A few months back Blizzard announced that Diablo, an incredibly popular dungeon-crawling series will finally be heading to consoles. It was a time to celebrate that a fantastic series will be available to an even wider audience but at the same time we couldn’t help but be a little bit cautious about how a series that has been a PC gaming icon would transition to a controller but Blizzard nailed it." (Diablo III, PS3, Xbox 360) 90/100

I agree with most of the review except where he mentioned the removal of the auction house as negative. I think this is the best part of the console version of this game. This puts purpose back into the reason diablo has been popular in the first place, the item hunt. Currently on PC the only way to have any chance of finding the best loot is to simply purchase it. This completely removes the magic from what makes diablo fun to begin with. Now, with the removal of being able to auto win, the thrill of slaying demons and hunting for items is back. I've been playing diablo 3 on the pc since launch and once the console versions are released I'm going to be strictly playing diablo 3 on the couch. Maybe once the expansion comes out and they fix the drop rate of items ill venture back to pc but until then ill be playing diablo the way it's meant to be played.

Nope. People are going to be duplicating items like mad in this game.

If you want a game with an item hunt play Dragon's Crown instead. Much better 4 player dropin/drop out coop rpg.

Greatly looking forward to getting my hands on this. Hopefully this will mark the start of Blizzard doing more console stuff. Yes, they are primarily a PC developer, but - it would be nice to see them spread their wings a bit more.

Yup. Tomorrow can't come fast enough. In all honesty, if the game maintains a good hardcore community, which I imagine it will, I'll probably pay again to get the ps4 version.

Do not want. Please keep blizzard games on PC. Since theyve been aquired by Activision we on console do not want their yearly nonsense. Biyearly games are only a hair better. I only have time for the best.
