56w 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 [Register or Login to view links] 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.

75w 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.
 

Diablo III's Rumored 2010 Release Date is Not Very Likely

50°
285w 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 [Register or Login to view links] 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...
