Why Diablo 3 on Consoles Wouldn’t Be Terrible

RipTen: "I’d love to see the console audience embrace Blizzard’s franchises with open arms. Perhaps this could further enclose the relationship between the PC and console fan base. Though, to ensure success, Blizzard should allow interconnectivity through the two platforms."

Diablo III + Console = Poor Port.

Blizzard would not a Console version if it wasn't of quality.

Blizzard is like Valve.....they don't make bad games.

majiebeast2635d ago

They do every wow expansion.

TheIneffableBob2635d ago

Diablo (PS1), Warcraft II: The Dark Saga (PS1), StarCraft 64 (N64)...

They weren't bad by any means, but they were definitely lacking compared to the PC versions.

Go check out Torchlight on the XBLA. It's a literal Diablo clone, and it struggles to run on console.

Now tell me how you expect Diablo III to run well on consoles.

Diablo would do just fine on consoles....and will.

damnyouretall2635d ago

nah man, the ps3 could handle a great port. i cant afford a pc for a long time so ill settle with my consoles. i would love to play this game. so please happen

I think consoles could handle Diablo 3 easily. The only thing they'd have to do is reduce some particle effects and maybe put fewer enemies on screen at once.

Persistantthug2635d ago (Edited 2635d ago )

Do they put fewer enemies on screen for the low end computers and laptops that Blizzard also aims their games towards?

Consoles are definitely more capable than those.

Just sayin.

ElementX2635d ago

I said "maybe". I'd rather have fewer enemies and better graphics/more particle effects, personally. More enemies can just come after you dispatch the first wave.

BlackjackCF2635d ago

I wouldn't mind. I mean, I'd personally prefer to play it on my PC but if Blizzard wants to port the game over, I don't see any problems.

I hope console only gamers can experience diablo 3

sirdrake2635d ago (Edited 2635d ago )

me too! It would be shame for them to miss it due to the expensive nature that is a good gaming PC

MasterCornholio2635d ago (Edited 2635d ago )

Only PC fanboys who dont want console owners to enjoy good games would say that Diablo would be bad on consoles. Sure it wont have the detail of the PC version but with a controller you can still play it extremely well.

We all have the right to enjoy good games. Only a stupid fanboy Nazi would say otherwise.
