More Evidence Points Towards Diablo III On Consoles

Not too long ago, we broke news to you that a job listing had been discovered on Gamasutra posted by Blizzard asking for a Senior Producer to work on "Console Diablo III". It now appears that we have more evidence to back-up the existence of Diablo III on consoles with another job listing.

great for console owners! To bad you have to you a controller :(

I would love to see WOW played on a console just to see it!

Diablo like games work perfectly fine with a controller where as games like Starcraft and World of Warcraft NEED a KB+M

It CAN work fine if made for a controller, but a straight PC port would be a nightmare, a lot of spells require screen location clicking with a cursor, such as grenade toss, teleport, etc.

I'm sure they will figure it out for consoles, just don't f#@% up the PC version Blizzard.

Don't know about 360, but PS3 has had keyboard and mouse support since day one. Devs don't use it much though for some reason.

umm... My friend is a WoW player and has a good gaming rig i helped him build months ago. (HD 5850)... Anyway he also has an xbox.

Believe it or not he plays WoW With the xbox controller. Says its easier. He's no newb either. So Wow could easily be on a console.

I wouldn't mind a diablo 3 on consoles. It was the first diablo on ps1 that showed me the light of pc gaming.

The more current gen gamers that see the light the more people to play other games online with on pc.

As others have stated the Playstation 3 does support k/m. I also played the original way back when on the first Playstation without too many issues on the controller. I see no problem bringing this game to consoles.

i actually replayed through diablo 1 on the ps1 a few weeks back haha. i still have my copy and surprisingly it works fine especially for a ps1 game. diablo 3 on consoles should work great just as long as they interface it for the controller. shouldn't be a problem though.

Why would anyone play a Blizzard game on a console?

I trust them to focus on the PC version, but then I trusted Crytek to do the same, and look what happened there.

As long as it isn't dumbed down I don't care. I'll still buy the PC version though as it will obviously be the superior version. I know the game doesn't look demanding and I thought the same about SC2 but there were a few times it brought my core i5 to it's knees lol and mind you I didn't even run the game at max. I've purchased every Blizzard game thus far. Also remember Diablo 1 was on psx.

Would be nice to have PS Move support also for Diablo 3
