Diablo III coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 has been considered pretty much a certainty by many, but Blizzard say they’re not yet properly “experimenting” with the idea, and warn that they might discover the game isn’t suited to consoles.
Some of these "writers" need to spend less time playing videogames and more time reading a grammar book. Or just reading in general. It's become irritating watching the same glaring, basic grammatical error--in the headlines no less--committed every day on this site.
If you mean "warn Blizzard" instead of "warns Blizzard", then allow me to calm you down a bit - while traditionally the singular form has been considered 'correct', lots of style guides, especially in the UK, now advise discussing groups such as companies as plural.
Oh, is that why I'm seeing these dumb-sounding pluralizations in the past couple years (mostly on N4G)? I'm in the US, so I must not have gotten the memo. Maybe I'll start saying things like, "Apple are cool," or "Conan O'brien are funny," and try not to think they sound so freaking awkward.
Statix: In the UK, the plural form has been more prevalent for as long as I can remember, so I'm glad written language is finally catching up. Think of it as "[the staff at] Blizzard are..." if it helps.
PC franchise is saved! Yes I know diablo has been on consoles before. But the console industry has turn upside down since that time and is only about money. Pc games are download now but still as hardcore as always.
Of course it will happen. Anyone that has played the beta can easily tell that everything from the watered down gameplay to the way abilities work that it was made for a controller.
"We’re not sure yet whether we think it will work" oh please. Diablo 3 is not a graphical paragon. it would not be hard to port it to consoles. there have been numerous games like it before on current gen consoles (Sacred 2, for example). and also "and whether we think we have the resources to do it” now they're just bullshitting us
Well they are shipping a game that's not 100% done with the intention of patching stuff in later so it doesn't get held back more. Like missing PvP. Im pretty sure i read that they said they have to patch stuff in so it doesnt get held back. Maybe that's what they mean by not having the resources to do it.
I think they'll hold off on console til the next gen, and possibly have it as a launch title...
