23w ago - Blizzard Entertainment Lead Designer Jason Bender proclaimed today that Diablo III on PlayStation 3 is hand-crafted for video game consoles.
He stated the following, to quote: I just got back from E3, where we had a good showing of the PlayStation 3 version of Diablo III and announced some cool PS3-exclusive items for the game.
The excitement and energy of the show reminded me of a time when people actually left the house to play videogames. Yes, I'm talking about arcades: magical places filled with vibrant colors, flashing lights, and the never-ending clink-clink-clink of tokens cascading out of a change machine.
There you could find the latest and greatest games--and people to play them with. Arcades were a uniquely social experience. You could hang out and have fun with friends, or you could make new ones while bonding over joysticks.
When we decided to bring Diablo III to console platforms, we wanted our four-player co-op to allow for the same spirit of fun that thrived in arcades. Our game had to allow for equal parts teamwork and trash talking, sweaty-palmed intensity and lighthearted mass destruction.

That's right, Diablo III is coming to PS3, so you'll want to make sure your couch can seat four comfortably- when you're smiting hordes of vile demons, it's good to have someone watching your back. So yeah, you might need a bigger couch.
