Diablo III Coming To Consoles? Blizzard In Talks

1 min read


Here is some great news that probably won’t matter for another year, this due to the fact that Blizzard aren’t even expecting Diablo 3 to even release in 2010.

The good news is that according to a tweet from Geoff Keighley, Blizzard are in talks with first parties:

“Paul Sams of Blizzard says they haven’t ruled out Diablo III for consoles — and are currently talking to the first parties.”

Now as much as I know that Diablo has always been a PC title and works best with a mouse and a keyboard, I really, really want this game to come to consoles so that I can flop onto my couch and easily connect with my online buddies.

I guess the major question is, will it have system link? If so, then it will automatically be better than any PC version ever, ever, ever. Ok maybe not so but it would be kind of funny.

    I think Sacred 2 proved this kind of game is definitely possible on consoles. They mapped the controls really well. Blizzard are good enough not to stuff it up. I really reaaaally hope it happens.

    Diablo III on 42 LCD + couch + connected + controller sounds awesome, means I wont need to buy a new PC. either way, this game will be mine!

  • The main thing for me is that I don’t play PC games much so I don’t know if my machine will be able to handle the game so I really want it to come to console where I can be sure that it will run smoothly and look pretty without me needing to fork out for a graphics card.

    Hope we can just hold down ‘X’ … put some sticky tape on it and hey ho! beer in the other hand!
