Diablo III is the ultimate console local co-op game

With the rise of online multiplayer gaming over the last decade, the idea of sitting on a couch and playing a video game locally with a group of friends, has become an almost foreign idea, especially when it comes to co-operative gameplay.

This is where Diablo III comes into play. (Diablo III, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Blizzard has sucked since Activision bought them. Diablo III is the biggest dissapointedment they've ever released and it doesn't belong on crappy consoless.
randomass171  +   159d ago
Blizzard and Activision merged. Neither one bought the other.

Diablo 3 is better on consoles, Pc boy!
Bloodborn  +   159d ago
I actually wouldn't mind if they skip PC for Diablo 4, this game is so much more fun on consoles. Local Coop is just an awesome bonus.
tastas21  +   158d ago
It's a fact. Compare screenshots. pc is always bettter with eveyr game u just ganct admit it

@tastas21
dont pretend youve already forgotten the spectacular diablo 3 pc launch.
always online drm,auction house,worse controls and all the login problems.
id take the ps3 version over just graphics of the pc version.the game isnt even a looker and ps3 has local co[op and offline play and excellent controls
ps4 version is just the best of both worlds

I like salt it tastes good hahahah!

Actually it is far better and improved than the PC version. It is an amazing summer release for PS4 and the best version of Diablo 3.

HAHAHA!
SpinalRemains138  +   159d ago
That's cool. You just prefer the lesser version of the game as you point and click your way to Noob greatness.
BrianSharon  +   159d ago
This feels like the game they've wanted to release all this time.

For better or worse.

So do you get more loot when playing together? Are there double the enemies or is the game more difficult? If everything stays the same I'd probably rather play alone instead of having to share the loot and xp.
Fullbucket  +   159d ago
I didn't notice any extra loot. Enemies were indeed harder, mind. You get an extra 10% gold & magic find when playing co-op, so that is a plus I guess.
TRD4L1fe  +   159d ago
The enemies are much harder in co-op, but i dont think you share XP or Loot. It is worth playing with a friend honestly

no, tecmo super bowl for NES in 1991 was the ultimate console local co-op game.....just amazing fun!

of course, most people on this site probably don't remember 1991, let alone the game.

That was my first football game. Hell, I enjoyed Blades of Steel and Ice Hockey for an awesome co-op experience too ;)
nucky64  +   158d ago
hells, yea! me and my buds played the heck out of tecmo SB and BoS hockey at ohio state back in the day!
SpinalRemains138  +   159d ago
Why do you remember 1991, but assume we will not?
nucky64  +   158d ago
I'm sure a few on here will remember. sometimes there's talk on this site about "best games of all time" or "toughest games" or whatever and I notice many people never look past the last 15 years. there are some of us that do remember.
I once told some people in their early 20s I remember (as a very young kid) having to manually turn the tv channels and they thought I was joking - like remotes ALWAYS existed. LOL!

that's why I ended my comment the way I did. I didn't mean to imply I have superior knowledge or anything.

Can you co-op D3 with a DS4 and vita?
Scark92  +   159d ago
I love Local Co-Op! I will probably get this when I buy a PS4,
More games need Local Co-Op no doubt!
pat_11_5  +   158d ago
I agree. It's a shame local co-op isn't more of a thing these days.

Glad to see Blizz finding this game's niche. PC release was unbelievably horrible. May have gotten better since then, but the initial game they offered was far below expectations.
Hopefully, Blizz takes notes and sees to it that the next installment in the series is not only a better experience, but also gets a multi-platform release.

Serious question for anyone. Do I need to play Diablo 1 and 2 to understand anything about Diablo 3?
Ashby_JC  +   159d ago
I have never played a Diablo game and I understand whats going on easily.

Im sure playing the other games helps but in this version the story is pretty simple.

Funny thing is...playing SP I pay more attention to the story etc.

Playing co-op with friends they are talking etc...cant get into the story much lol.
pat_11_5  +   158d ago
No, definitely not. I've dabbled a bit with Diablo II but I never played it extensively. The plot sucks in III anyways so just ignore it.
lemoncake  +   158d ago
The local coop is amazing I hope we get more games like this coming out, the game is perfect on consoles and is just a lot more fun than when I played it on PC.
