In addition to DualShock 4 touchpad features, Blizzard will introduce new social features like Adventure Kills for upcoming next-gen version; no comment on Xbox One version.
superior version confirmed.
and 60fps as well
Already on current gen. I mean who's excited for this lol?
@PraxxtorCruel Uhhhm....i am. I purposely held out on buying it on current gen to get it for PS4.
I'd be thoroughly disgruntled if the next generation consoles, whether that's PS4 or XONE, wouldn't be able to run Diablo III in 1080p60. I'm actually startled that such titles as Assassin's Creed IV, WATCH_DOGS, Destiny or The Evil Within are set to run in 30 FPS.
@praxx I'm getting this day one i held off for the ps4 version.. can't wait baby
@Agent Those games are so much more demanding than Diablo 3.
@Praxxtor - I am. I didn't buy the PS3 version and opted to wait for the PS4 version instead.
I've held of playing Diablo 3 on my PS3, same went for Metro, much rather play them on the PS4 when I get one I'll have even more games to play then
Microsoft continues to take it in the teeth. And it's only going to get worse once Sony's stellar lineup of first party devs start revealing more of what they are working on.
I want to get it for my XBOXONE since it's clearly a timed exclusive but i might get it for my PS4 if the XBOXONE version comes out after Titanfall.
i quit playing for my ps3 when i heard bout the incoming ps4 version. its an awesome game and i want the best expierience. im funny like that. want it all or nothin at all, shit bugs me
The PS4 version was announced simultaneously with the PS3 version. Why did you even start playing the current-gen version? Just wondering. You have a blocked access to Wikipedia?
nah man i didnt research it or read any articles on n4g, just seen some for ps3 headlines a couple of months ago. and no i dont fool with wikipedia smartass
Your PS3 character transfers over to the PS4 version. So it won't hurt to continue playing.
That's what I'm doing. Have been playing on the ps3 to get to inferno and 60. When I get the ps4 version, I'll transfer and continue. So much replay value.
I want it alllllllll....or noooothing at allllll
For now it seems like the only next gen version.
All multiplats will be superior actually but I don't mind these type of articles that keep reminding people about it :D
I'm playing the PS3 version and I'm still buying the PS4 version, @praxxtorCruel
Some choose to brush off the ps4's capability's while others welcome them. good job blizzard.
I agree with you. People are going on this resolution isn't everything kick but I would love everything to be at least 1080p. Years ago when I decided to get an HDTV I could have chose a no name, black friday, barebones $350 720pTV. I wanted full HD, 1080p, 3D, Wifi etc. That's the type of content I want and I'm glad some companies (Blizzard included) are not going to settle for nothing less.
LOL, a $170 card can max this game out @60fps and 2560 x 1600 resolution. "Capabilities..."
Lol, at disagrees: http://www.tomshardware.com... http://www.newegg.com/Produ...
Yeah that's about 2/5 the price of the whole console. now price the rest of computer for us. I'll wait.....
no GTA V for you ;p
@above You think because I'm telling the truth I don't play on consoles? Okay, buddy. ;) The point isn't comparing the the price to the machine, the fact that a cheap, LOW end card from years ago can run this at HIGHER than 60fps AND 1600p means this is no technical feat, lol. You could build a machine with that card for maybe a hundred more bucks than a console (~560), but with that kind of performance leap, you're buying a PS5/Xbox TWO, heheh
@2.2.4 Do you still have your ps3 slim?
Im sure ps4 can run D3 at 1600p too but whats the point since most people have a 1080p tv
You get disagrees cause we already know what PC can do but we don't care. If you want to talk about PC stuff go to PC articles.
NoWayOut No, they don't know what the PC can do, otherwise people here wouldn't act enthused that some simplistic game can run full HD at 60 fps. I'm HELPING you guys! AND I have cookies! ;)
I play it on the PC, but the superior version is clearly on the console. So your point is moot.
Narutone66 Moot to what? What you said has nothing to do with the capabilities of hardware.
"good job activision" fixed. its all about the money.
"The most prominent of which is a new Adventure Kills system, which Berger described as "by far the most fun." Through this new system, when a player is killed by a monster, there is chance that the monster will level up and jump into a friend's game. The first player's friend will be prompted with a message saying "Matthew's bane is stalking you," at which time the monster--described as elite and with special abilities--will appear on his screen. If the second player defeats the monster, the first player will receive a message saying their death has been avenged and the second player will receive loot. If the second player is killed, the monster will grow even stronger and will stalk one of his friends, continuing the cycle, though it is not clear just how powerful the enemy can become." Thats really cool. Im in limbo if im gonna jump to PS4 or keep my old D3 char on pc with lvl 80 paragon.
Do you mean your lvl 80 is on PC? Because if it's on PS3 your character(s) will transfer. I haven't bought D3 yet, but I plan on getting it on PS4. I actually played the demo on PS3 last night and was surprised by how much fun I had on my own. I will get D3 strictly for co-op play on PS4! I'm definitely looking forward to a release date!
PS4 version will come w/ expansion... I may actually consider buying it not sure lol.
Although I could careless about this game, when i see 1080P I am satisfied to be considering PS4 as the default system that I will purchase most 3rd party games for. Here is the deal, there is NO excuse for Advanced consoles to not be on par with the industry standard televisions. 1080P 60FPS anything less is last gen to me. Those who are comfy with that, keep your PS3 and 360. Those who stand with me, unite.
I only coming to PS4 too, not gonna be on Xbox One.
quinten488 exclusivity confirmed. ;)
http://www.futureshop.ca/en... I am sure the PS4 version will be the best version, but there's no need to make up lies.
There has been no announcement by Blizzard that there will be an Xbox One version. That's just one of those instances of a retailer putting up a SKU. Those don't always turn out to be real, it's just a preemptive move by the retailer, it's as good as rumor, but as of now, there is no confirmation of any Xbox One release for this game. Proof right from the horse's mouth: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/... Go to the FAQ section from that page and do a CTRL+F for "Xbox One". You'll find the following Q&A: Q: Will Diablo III be released on Xbox One? A: We’ve announced that Diablo III is coming to PS3, PS4, and Xbox 360; we don’t have further announcements to make regarding any other platform at this time.
they also didn't announce a 360 version until it came out. But it did. If it weren't coming to Xbox One they'd say so. They haven't. So why don't we face the truth eh? LOL, ok retards. Go ahead and believe that 'we have nothing to say about that right now' means 'ps4 exclusive'. Prepare to kiss my ass in a few months when it comes out for both.
Your the one making up lies. Blizzard has never confirmed an Xbox One version of Diablo 3. Blizzcon would have been the perfect place to announce it but they didn't. Heck the PS4 had a playable version at the convention. Nexus 7 2013
It was never claimed to be an exclusive to ps4 but blizzard have gone on record to say that they never recieved an xboxone developer kit so there is no xbox one version in the works
I'll pick this up for PS4. I might download it, as opposed to having the disc version. I'll figure it out. Anyway, cool beans.
Old game should be easy to make 1080p Not many will buy it anyway
RoS is included so ya not old
Interesting, but already played it... wait for the PS+ version.
I'm pretty tired of D3. I made mulitiple characters, got them to level 60+, got through inferno. Got a hardcore character to level 40. I mean, there's just not much more I can get out of the game. I think if the skill points were given instead of simply allowing the player to switch to whatever skills they want when they want, there would have been much more replayability. A good game, but still a disappointment in my book. Why would I buy another version of it?
Well you definitely wouldn't. However, there are plenty of people who held off for the PS4 version. It does include that new expansion, but if you're done with it you're done.
Yeah, I mean, that's really awesome for the people who haven't played it yet. While I miss the skill tree system, the game still offers a lot. I plan on playing the expansion on PC though, and I'm happy its being included into the PS4 version.
I'm glad Blizz is expanding their audience a bit but i hope they don't start to try to cater all their games to console compatibility. SC2 with a controller oh god....
True Diablo fans play it no PC though. Playing such game on such advice is simply embarrassing.
How old is this game now? If I didn't want it a year ago when it was new why would I want it now?
Its not a demanding game. Its no surprise its 1080p and 60fps.
Nice 1080p and 60 FPS !
I'm not interested in this game until they have cross platform play. The player base for this on the PC is freaking huge. You can find random players to coop with around the clock and by going with the PS4 version I'll be giving that up. Now that the capability of the PS4 and the PC is almost equal and controls isn't an issue, I don't see why cross plat isn't available in more PC ports.
You would have to sign into a Battle.net client and the game would always be Online DRM.
All Playstation games have DRM because you need to sign in to PSN network to play online, so I'm not sure how DRM is relevant. Community pop is a bigger issue here. This is why I think War Thunder is going to be huge on the PS4. From day one there will thousands of players to play around the clock because it's drawing from a pool of both PS4 players and the existing PC community.
I take it 1080p is one of those exclusive features?
How did MS miss out on this one considering it's a PC classic? Smh!
Just pre ordered my ps4.
