Dear Blizzard: Why Is Diablo 3 Better on Console?

GF - "Dear Blizzard,

Please explain to me why Diablo 3 plays better on console than on PC.

Sure, maybe our expectations were a little high when Diablo 3 released in May of 2013. Maybe they were so high that no game could possibly ever live up to the titanic levels of hype generated from a decade of anticipation. But that’s only because of your record of excellence. For years, you were the champions of PC gaming."

Is it really better on the consoles. I have it for the PS3 and i'm loving the game but is it truly better than the PC version??

The experience is definitely better...something about the way they mapped the controller and the combat just feels...RIGHT...if you are talking performance I don't see that being any difference really and the graphics on console aren't as clean as the PC but they are pretty damn close.

I have it on PC and am considering buying for PS3 after I played the demo so me and my wife can play together locally and even my buddy is thinking about picking it up for his PS3 as well even though he owns the PC version that we both played together for many many hours lol

If you buy the digital version, you get two copies via gameshare, and you can share it with your friend, who in return can tell his wife to get in on the threesome you guys are having. Everyone wins :)

Oh nice! Well that just solidified my decision to purchase lol

They tweaked the loot drops on the console version, because there's no auction house. A lot of people say that the loot drops are better on console than on PC, with legendary items dropping more frequently on console. But PC will eventually patch that since they're getting rid of the auction house too.

Because these games work better with a controller as opposed to Click click click click click click click.

Why is Diablo 3 better on console? Simple - it was a console game in the first place ;)

Nope. Diablo 3 was just a scam to steal the money of the loyal fans of the series, so they can make easy cash.

Its a matter of opinion, but the reason I prefer it on console is using a controller. Yes I could do that on my PC, but I have a console for that sort of thing. None the less, enjoyed it on PC, and now PS3

Coach_McGuirk1041d ago

i'm pretty sure they don't allow controllers on the PC version

us_army1041d ago

Ahh didnt know that, but was just reiterating the fact that some PC games do allow controllers, but id rather play a console if that was the case.

I guess the controller is better than the mouse in this instance, either way I'm enjoying the game but I'm sure PC gamers enjoyed it just as much.

The big thing that changed between consoles and PC was the Real Money Auction house. Which is why we're currently not enjoying it... I spent 45 hours in the game, grinding for some awesome loot. And I got items I was happy with... I spent $0.79 and got loot that COMPLETELY outclassed my drops. Thankfully that all changes when they shut it down.

Speaking only for myself, I hated the mouse controls for the PC. It's just clumsy having one input control your moving and targeting.

The console version is pretty ugly though. Models are such low detail. D3 also looks really nice in stereoscopic 3d, which is perhaps surprising given it's isometric.

Reason it's better is simply because AH is gone.
Much more fun to find/make your own gear than buying it.
