What was that? All I heard was Blizzard saying "YOU WILL GIVE US ALL OF YOUR MONEY!!!"

Although I am curious as to what the company will do once people start calling Blizzard out on the fact that Diablo 3 will be completely playable offline on consoles yet inseparably tied to always-online DRM on the computer. If Blizzard decides to keep the DRM on computer versions of D3, then I can only see Blizzard's reputation hitting very close to rock-bottom.

Honestly I dont think any PC fans of Diablo will care. Alot of them are done with the game and to them it was just a big disappointment. I mean the AH screwed up alot of it than you have the PvP still not there. Yeah I think Blizz is mainly looking to recover their loses on D3 by releasing these ports.

I might get this game. Don't know which version I will get because I'm not sure if I'm buying a PS4 anytime soon.

Heard of Torchlight 2 or Path of Exile? Much better options

Heard of the fact that my laptop is probably not up for games like that? There's a reason I'm looking at Diablo III for consoles, you know.

Torchlight 2 isn't a very demanding game, so you could probably play it. If you know your specs I'll check for you.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

So now apparently Diablo III may just not be coming to the PS3 and PS4. I would be interested to see how the Gamepad will come into play for the Wii U version. I think it will be used mainly for inventory but I can also see it being used for a minimap as well and off tv play too. What do you guy think? Any ideas that you would like to see for the Wii U version of Diablo III?

Well I picked this up and got a chance to play it I have to say much better than the PC version. Its almost like Diablo III was meant for consoles and the PC version was a beta for that. Of course truth be told I think it was the real money auction house that messed up the PC version. IF you have been wanting to check out Diablo 3 but dont have a PC that could run it or heard about the reviews I strongly recommend playing it on either the Xbox or the PS3.

I've been playing Diablo3 on the PS3, Blizzard have done an excellent job. Loading screens are super fast, no DRM, lag or the AH. I also agree it's a lot better than the PC version.

Ok been playing this alot the past few days and yes I have to agree alot better then the PC version. I noticed that the loot that drops is more tailored to your class I mean yeah I got a few Witch Doctor weapons but not the amount I got on the PC version. Plus the fact that my son and I can play co-op is another big plus. I am having alot of fun with this one.

Would have been nice if this came out on the Wii U though. I would have loved to use the Game Pad screen to keep track of my inventory and character rather than having to bring up a pause menu.

I just got done playing the demo on PS3 and really liked it. It's not the best looking game I have ever played but it's fun. I have never played the other games since I'm not a PC gamer but will probably end up getting this.

Its also available on the 360 as well.

I knew Diablo III was on the 360 but i wasn't sure if it got the Demo also, as i got the info for the PS3 Demo off the PlayStation Blog, but thanks for posting that it got the Demo also.

@CanisWolfred: I didn't try the demo since I bought the game on release date but I will say that if you liked the older Diablos like me, then you will enjoy Diablo III alot on the console.

@Splat: Yeah the only other console release of the Diablo series was a PS port of Diablo and iirc Blizzard had someone else port it over. It was good just you can tell it was a sloppy port, where as this game was built for console from the ground up.

Pure Xbox.com gave it an 8/10 and said that the only thing bad about this game was the graphics weren't as good as a PC which is obvious.

I went a head and got it. I'm downloading it on PS3 as we speak.

After playing 2 a thousand times before this came out, I was extremely disappointed with this one. One of the few scenarios where I let the hype get the better of me, and I didn't like the outcome. My expectations were probably unrealistically high due to the development time, but whatever.

All accounts say the PS3/360 version is way better than the PC version.
