Below are the details, to quote: Greetings, PlayStation Nation! I'm excited to tell you that on September 3rd, PlayStation 3 gamers will join the eternal struggle between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells.
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.
My team has been hard at work custom-tailoring the PS3 version of Diablo III. We're putting all the fast-paced action (and shiny loot) that Diablo is known for into the palms of your hands in a way that feels natural and fun to play using a controller.
With direct character control and an intuitive user interface, all your demon-slaying skills are just a button-press away, so you'll be able to dive right in and vanquish evil with reckless abandon.
With the game now just three months away, it's a good time to preorder your copy with your local retailer.

41w ago - Blizzard Co-Founder & Chief Development Officer Frank Pearce has revealed that Diablo III is coming to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 with details below.
To quote: Now that Diablo's out of the bag, I just want to say that we're stoked to be bringing Diablo III over to PlayStation. We got our start in console games, and a bunch of us, myself included, have been looking forward to this day for a very long time.
We're putting a lot of work into doing Diablo III right for PS3 and PS4. All of the upgrades we've made to the PC version since launch will be included. On top of that, we're completely redeveloping the interface, controls, and camera so that the traditional Diablo hack-and-slash, loot-collecting, dungeon-crawl feels natural and fun with a controller in your hands.
I know a lot of people will have a lot of questions about the game, and we look forward to getting into all of that as development progresses. For now, I just want to say thanks to all of you who kept pushing us to get back to console, and please come check out the game at PAX East if you're in Boston in late March.
251w ago - It has recently surfaced that a Diablo III fan site has jumped to the conclusion that Blizzard has somehow "confirmed" Diablo III's release for 2010.
They've made this assessment based on Blizzard's recent announcement that it is planning to release one "frontline" title per year, just as it has in the past.
Expansion packs like The Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King could easily fall under this very definition, based on both their pricing and the amount of content they have to offer.
While it is more than likely that Starcraft II will be released this year based on the fact that it is going into Beta very soon, as with everything Blizzard has ever done, nothing can be certain until they make the actual announcement.
With that said, even if Starcraft II comes out this year, there's absolutely no guarantee that Diablo III will be their next game.
The fact remains that World of Warcraft remains an extremely popular title, and the possibility for the release of yet another, perhaps final expansion pack is almost certainly guaranteed.
Beyond World of Warcraft, Blizzard has already announced plans for two Starcraft II expansion packs which...
284w ago - Blizzard has said that it is "hoping" that World of Warcraft's monstrous fan-base will take an interest in its latest game, action-RPG Diablo III, but that it isn't concerned about losing monthly WOW revenue.
"No we're not afraid of losing WOW subscribers to Diablo III," lead designer Jay Wilson said during a press conference - following the game's unveiling at Blizzard's Worldwide Invitational event in Paris this weekend.
"There's not as big of a crossover as we expected between the two communities," senior exec and Blizzard co-founder Frank Pearce offered on the same subject, "but we're certainly hoping that the WOW community will be interested in DIII."
