Diablo 3 on Consoles?

Post by S7 Interseptor on Fri Jun 03, 2011 2:36 pm

Could it be? http://www.joystiq.com/2011/06/03/blizzard-hiring-playstation-3-specialist-for-diablo-3-team/

PS3 only? or Xbox 360 also? Time will tell.

That would be awesome, and my choice. No grab hacks and a real economy for loot. It would make me play my PS3 more for sure, but I can't see how Blizzard wouldn't put it on 360 as well, unless the royalties and money conflicts. I still think they should put D2 out as an XBLA game- who wouldn't buy it?

I am pretty sure I read the same thing now that you mention it. But it was a while back and Blizzard has since said "no console version". Now this listing comes out? Who knows? Personally I would love to see it come out since I am not going to get it on the PC. Fingers crossed.

There is a lot of work going into the D3 console "tester" for it to be a hypothetical "wait and see" development. I would guess it comes out about a year after the PC version, and that way they can get most of us to double dip-


Blizzard's Diablo 3 developers are on the main stage at BlizzCon 2011 right now, and game director Jay Wilson spoke a little bit about the potential console version of the game. Nothing has changed -- there is no officially announced console version. But Wilson did confirm that Blizzard has hired a team to work on it, and that the company has been iterating on console controls.

"The movement actually feels better on the controller," Wilson said, in response to a fan's question. "Targeting is the issue." Most of the schemes the team has come up for choosing what to attack and loot require a reticule, "which we really don't want to do," Wilson said. "Monster distribution and AI also feels a little bit different than it does on the PC version."

And Blizzard won't even say that there's a console version coming "because we don't want to announce something until we're sure." Obviously the team is working on it, and obviously Diablo 3 on a console would be extremely popular -- the first game did officially come to the original PlayStation all those years ago. But as Wilson says, the team wants to assure that "if it goes on a console, it doesn't compromise the PC game in any way, and it feels like it was built for the console."
