Diablo III may still hit consoles

Diablo fans are definitely not happy that the game isn't shipping until 2011, but fans might be happy to hear that Blizzard isn't completely ruling out having the game come to consoles.

The story is too old to be commented.

interesting, but I don't think it will come to consoles

KeenanTheSavage3561d ago

yeah, I agree but I hope it does only because my laptop probably can't run Diablo III. :(

Keep reminding me it isn't out till 2011.....the only thing that's worse is if the Old Republic isn't out till 2011 too....

I'll be getting a new computer anyway soon so I don't care if it hits consoles. It seems like the game would be WAY easier to play with a keyboard and mouse to me though

Well if it does i think it will be a watered down version not graphics but how the gameplay will work out with less buttons. Unless they can utilize the little keyboard text pads to work with it may work out.

If there is a PS3 version then that version can support a mouse & keyboard so that version shouldn't have any problems.

Blizzard games have historically not been very hardware intensive. Your laptop should be able to run it at least in some form. You'll probably have a new computer by the time Diablo 3 ships anyway.

@1.3: I used to think the same thing about Elder Scrolls games, but Bethesda managed to make Morrowind work fine on the Xbox, then they nearly perfected their system on consoles with Oblivion(regardless of the games obvious weaknesses).

There's no reason Diablo could be made to work on consoles with a little creativity. Have a little faith in Blizzard. They're not idiots.

If it did come to consoles I'd buy a PC & PS3 version >.> only for a blizzard game, only for a blizzard game

A PS3 vesion would be excellent!

Please no.


Just focus everything on the PC version. And if you release it on consoles, don't even start thinking about it until D3 is already released on PC

I agree with you completely, but then again there's THAT rat toothed greedy little man.

KeenanTheSavage3561d ago

Wow, I never really thought about it like that, but yeah, I agree completely. If they were going to make Diablo III on consoles, definitely focus on it AFTER the PC version is released.

...a variant of the game could not come to consoles. Obviously one that did not depend on a mouse to play.

However, could easily add mouse support for those who have them for their PS3...

No one uses mouse and keyboards for consoles. Consoles are meant to be put in people's living rooms, and you can't really have a mouse and keyboard comfortably put in there.

I would love it to consoles just in case my video card decides not to handle it.

dustgavin3561d ago

Yes! This would be excellent on consoles. Hope this works out.
