    Diablo 3 for consoles 'not necessarily a Sony exclusive'..

    I asked about the PlayStation 4 version, and was told that they are only talking about the PlayStation 3 version at the moment. I also asked about their exclusivity with Sony. “We don't have any announcements to make at this time,” I was told, “But we're not necessarily a Sony exclusive.”

    Not really a surprise. If I recall they said exclusive content. Could be wrong but I fully expect this to be on PS4 and Nextbox.

    It'll flop on consoles anyway, anyone who plays Blizzard games already plays them on PC, there'll be a small few console only gamers who'll try this out.

    Wouldnt be so sure about that, im sure theres more then just me who would love to play Diablo 3 but doesnt support "always-on" (unless its flat out multiplayer, I understand why they do it and thus dont complain but I still wont support it) and since I read the console version wont have that I am fully interested in it.

    Right now im just waiting for differences between PS3 and PS4 versions. It also helps when the consoles lack good games in this genre.

    It all depends on the controls and how they handle the game with a lot of action on screen at once...

    That's me. I already played it and have no interest to play it again.

    TBH they shouldve put WoW on consoles first if they wanted to "test the waters", people would go crazy for that no matter which platform it's on.

    Yeah WoW with cross play would be a massive hit. I don't honestly know why they haven't done it by now. But I'm sure WoW 2 will be out in the somewhat near future and they probably will. Not saying the next year or two but I'm sure it's in the works right now.

    I never understood why WOW was not on any consoles since the PS3... It makes no sense

    online would have been a killer and a down right money maker

    Of course it's not a Sony exclusive, it's been on PC for ages now

    A lot of PAX reports are positive, saying the combat-centric feel of playing D3 on controller is very satisfying. I'll be getting this for sure.

    I'm not a fan of Diablo but I've always thought it would play just as well with a controller, if not better. Interested to see that working. Out of all the games that have traditionally been PC exclusive, it's best suited to be brought over

    That's great man. I was so close to buying that frickin Gameloft dungeon game off PSN so me and my bros can play a couchcoop dungeon crawler as there is a very limited choice for console players imo. Plus Warriors' Lair seems like vaporware at this point so there is definitely a market for D3 to settle in. Cannot wait

    That's what I got from the article as well, I think Diablo is a PS console exclusive but for future projects they say they're not Sony exclusive. Doesn't matter either way, going into next gen it's the first party titles that will set the consoles apart, no need for this throwing money at third party devs anymore.

    And overall I can't see D3 doing anymore than 1 mil tops on PS3/PS4 combined.

    to be honest i wasnt sure there was anyone on earth who actualy cared about Diablo 3 on consoles :-p the reaction at the event seemed very "Thats nice, got anything new?"
    There once was a man named Sidney, he used to collect shells on the beach. everything was going well for him. untill he stopped and took a look, he had a glance and a stare and realised he what he was reading.
    It was a forum signature full of nonsense

    I didn't even realize Torchlight was on consoles. Beat the second one and loved it. Liked it more than diablo. Torchlight has more skills to use too. So Diablo should be no problem. There are only 4 skills and you have mana and health pots. I think that is it. Only thing that I see might be a problem is the targeting. Don't know how they do that on consoles. Never really played a game like that on console.
