Blizzard Entertainment is hiring a Senior Software Engineer, Console Playstation 3 Specialist
Speculative, but possible.
God I wish. Diablo should come to all platforms though. Its that good.
Diablo 1 on PS1 So Diablo3 on PS3 is an easy choice Some xbox lovers are commenting like PC supporters
hope not. D3 should not be gimped by 512 mb and console limitations
When programed with care, games that run on a console's 512MB of ram, can be roughly equivalent to a PC's 1-2GB of ram. For example: AC1: Console = 512MB....PC = 1GB AC2: Console = 512MB....PC = 1.5GB Cryis 2: Console= 512MB...PC= 2GB Arkham Asylum: Console = 512MB.....PC = 1GB HOMEFRONT: Console = 512MB....PC = 2GB Dead Space 2: Console = 512MB....PC = 1GB PORTAL 2: Console = 512MB....PC = 1GB http://store.steampowered.c... Those are the min ram specs for said PC games. Since Console devs employ tricks like Disk streaming, and then, at least in the PS3's case, it can also employ it's Harddrive for VIRTUAL RAM. So consoles are fine and Diablo 3 will be fine too. Hopefully they can add CROSS PLATFORM PLAY like Valve....that would be fun. :)
well, you're dumb... I guess you're a PC loyalist, but you don't know that blizzard makes games that can run on most PC anyway. They are pretty games, but it's just the art that makes them pretty, concoles will be able to run diablo 3 without a problem
This would be huge if Sony announced this at their press conference on Monday. Until that time though, we can merely speculate.
They should probably concentrate on getting the PC version done first.
I thought they said it was more or less completed about a month ago?
I doubt that, blizzard is never done with a game, they will take 10 years if needed. Is there even a release date yet?
Honestly cant imagine them not doing a 360 version if they're putting it on the PS3. Unless there's some actual issue. Also expect that PC gamers are only going to be pissed if this happens. @plbelanger: Naw, Diablo is a much bigger and recognized IP and Blizzard/Activision loves money. If it was a money/exclusivity issue, MS would have won.
It's likely the same reason Witcher 2 is only going to 360...they were paid for exclusive rights. Either way, I doubt it's true.
I honestly don't think Microsoft paid for exclusive rights for witcher. It was just faster and easier for cdprojekt to port to the 360 first and I am pretty sure they will release it for the ps3 next year. cdprojekt don't seem like they do half assed ports with the care they took for the pc version. They figured they need more time to learn the ps3 architecture and come out with a good port so they decided to release it first on xbox while the game is still fresh in people's minds. if it was exclusive you would have seen it on the trailer coming "exclusively" to 360 and Microsoft would have sounded the trumpets off if it was exclusive.
CDProjekt is a small PC studio. Pretty obvious why Witcher 2 isnt on PS3. You know some devs aint ready to go through the hassle of developing for "THE CELL!!!".
paid situation. That Polish dev team is very PC centric and I think they are somewhat small too. THE WITCHER 1 wasn't on either console and if you'll take notice, you'll see that many smaller European Developers are the same way, like Haemimont Games (Tropico), JoWooD Entertainment (publisher of GOTHIC series), and Reality Pump (Two Worlds 1). It isn't that these studios got incentivised by Microsoft, it's that they don't KNOW HOW to develop for the PS3, and most of them barely know how to develop for the XBOX 360 because their ported games often run like hell. So try not to be so hard on them....they only suck at porting because they're small and still learning. :P Edit....but here's the good news....If a game comes out late to the PS3, Sony demands they put extra content for said game....Like Command & Conquer: REd Alert 3 (PS3 version got ULTIMATE EDITION), MASS EFFECT 2 (Got comic and all DLC on disk for free). So if THE WITCHER 2 does make it to the PS3, we'll probably get the upcoming DLC for free. :)
Nah, I think if it happens it will come to both consoles. They're probably hiring a PS3 specialist because they don't know the console that well. They can probably port it to the 360 themselves.
360 gets The Witcher 2, PS3 gets Diablo 3... and hopefully both are timed exclusives so everybody wins in the end.
There will also be 'TrochLight 2' and 'civilization' ports. Some PC ports are well worth it.
I am fairly certain we will be seeing Diablo3 on the consoles
Glad to see this coming to consoles, people need to play the best dungeon crawler =).
Nice jump there. They post a wanted add and suddenly its a confirmation of D3 on consoles...I guess in your eyes someone being able to kick a ball makes them an NFL star?
This will probably be only for PC and PS3. With the 360 version coming 6 months to a year later. It happened with Mass Effect 2 so it could happen here as well.
First Portal 2 and now Diablo? Utterly ridicoulus. Only PC gamers should be able to play this. Sony shoulkd have to give Uncharted to us >:(
And you're not even mentioning the X-COM fiasco? The hell kind of angry PC gamer are you? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
LOL tehy can keep. Only people impressed by that Tomb Raider rip off are single console owners
For a Tomb Raider rip off, Tomb Raider is sure trying to rip it off with the new game. Uncharted > Uncharchick
LOL they can keep. Only people impressed by that Power Rangers rip off are single console owners. Comment Fixed.
and two fanboys start faoming at the mouth to prove me right with their statements.. Dony ctu kids. go get a hug from mommy. Just an opinion so no need to get all emotional. you guys must really love it though. 5 games in 5 years.. You dont mind being milked at all
I hope it does come to the PS3, if it does lets hope it's authentic to the PC version... I don't want some watered down version because it's on console.
I really hope... I doubt my laptop will be able to handle it. :/
Guys, nobody paid for Witcher 2 to be only on 360. To the contrary, they don't have resources to develop it for both consoles simultaneously. Today there was an interview with CDP CEO and he said that their goal is to reach all 3 platforms but not at the same time. Of course, 360 version can sell badly and then they won't continue but I doubt it, it's a very good game. Speaking of new multiplat announcements, PS3 gets Xcom and Metro for now. As I prefer futuristic worlds over fantasy ones, that's ok with me.
So if it is coming to consoles it will come to 360 to. "Why didn't they hire an X360 person then?" Well they don't need to because the 360 and PC are so similar it will be a breeze. Unlike PS3 which has "teh cell of powah!" Hope it doesn't go to consoles though.
It will make it take longer to release (like it already has). Unless they do a CDProjekt Red and release PC version first and then develop for consoles it's fine. The game has already taken forever to come out, it doesn't need to be kept back because of a console version. And thanks for the thumbs down console fanboys, give me more!
I really can careless if a PC Game goes to consoles or vice versa. Most PC Gamers only care that the PC version gets made properly to take advantage of all the features and power of the PC instead of the crappy ports that we usually get that only end up getting Pirated to death cause no PC Gamer will pay for Crappy ports but will gladly shell out coin for Quality. Battlefield 3 is a perfect example of what to do. Make it PC first then port it down.
"Battlefield 3 is a perfect example of what to do. Make it PC first then port it down." This my friend solves every problem!
Oh boy, I hope this is true!!
interesting the first diablo was indeed on the PS1.
Theres been so many rumors about Diablo 3 coming to consoles, it totally is, its basically confirmed.
