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.
