Does anyone care? Serious question. I can't imagine anyone was holding out for a console release and avid fans came, saw, and 'bawwed'.

Wonder how much it will cost be because who really wants to buy new games for old console when they just announced new console and you will have to buy new games again LOL!

Wrong. I'm looking forward to this. I haven't played it on the PC yet and this will be a welcomed addition.

Game was disappointing on the PC so not really looking forward to it unless its a 20.00 PSN game, but its blizzard/activision so it will probably go for full price. I'm sure some people will enjoy it though, but I stopped playing it half a year ago.

Now Torchlight 2 would be a welcome addition, that game is awesome.

To be honest, I was seriously let down when Metzen announced the game was DIII. I really thought he was going to announce Project Titan. In hindsight, that was foolish of me to think but at the time it made a lot of sense.

I never played the first 2 Diablos before getting Diablo 3. I liked the concept of the series and I was convinced to get it when a couple of other friends said they would too. Fast forward to today, I really regret buying that game. Not even playing with friends (while voice chatting through another program, no less) made this game an enjoyable experience. We really gave it a chance, we were doing 2 hour long loot runs through inferno to get something good either to trade, sell or keep and after weeks of doing this daily we came out pretty much empty handed. Another friend of mine got lots of gold through some websites that were making gold giveaways and bought items far superior to what me and my other friends were able to get in more than a hundred hours of gameplay.

To those interested in the game, don't buy it. The game becomes hostile after reaching level 60 if you don't intend to pour money into the auction house.

I knew it. Now we know why it sucked.

The wings of titans were clipped by dirty console peasants.

Interesting points but completely lacking in historical accuracy. Diablo 1 and 2 were similarly designed. Diablo 1 was ported to the PS1. The Diablo franchise has never had any of the complex mechanics that are commonplace with traditional RPGs or MMOs. That's what made Diablo fun!

I can see how one would come to such a conclusion but the conclusion is quite absurd.

Yeah and buy Torchlight 2 instead. It's $20 (or like $10 on sale), and it runs on a wide array of machines. Torchlight 2 is the better game IMO.

You can't ignore the fact that this had to be planned some years ago and had influence though. No matter how much they defend it, fans will always use it as fuel to explain the poor gameplay.

They might on PS4/720 considering the T2 developer said 360/PS3 could not run it due to ram issues.

To all the diablo haters: I'm glad to have company. I hated the first. Tried the second, hated it. Haven't even bothered with the third and will never play it or any other diablo game again.

People got really mad when I told them Diablo 2 sucked. Now it's some ki d of fad to say you hate the games.

I bought D3 for the PC. I played it for like 2-3 hours and never went back. I don't care about a console version of the game.

So is the upcoming console version going to have an always-on internet requirement or was that just a special gift for PC players. It'll be interesting to see how they handle that. If it doesn't require always on internet then it's becoming increasingly clear that decision was for DRM purposes only andnot to "enhance the experience" or whatevetr other garbage line they were spouting trying to justify it.

Stupid and pointless, the game is getting such a bad rap on PC, why even bother porting it to consoles? I'm pretty sure 95% of the people interested in this game already got it for PC and stopped playing it months ago.

I too got really excited, daphatty, when I saw Metzen walk out. I was watching it with a few friends online and we all said "Oh my god, is this going to be Titan?" I then slapped myself and said, no, it's probably Diablo 3.

Played it on PC, still excited. Why? Local co op withe the Mrs. Haven't had a good local co op RPG since sacred 2.

This whole thing baffles me. I mean, by the time PS4 comes out this fall Diablo 3 is going to be over 2 years old. A 2 year old port of a PC game, which at this point seemingly has no new content aside from 4 player local? In addition to the fact you eluded to, which is that basically everyone is pissed at Diablo 3 now and how much of a debacle it's turned into.

It's clear that Activision influence has completely permeated all of Blizzard at this point. The fact that they've all but outright stated all work on Diablo 3 is done at this point (hey guys, remember PvP...) is completely un-Blizzard-like. I wouldn't be surprised at all if this is the tipping point of Blizzard shifting their focus to console development and becoming just another fart out an annual release studio.

Yeah I wish Blizzard could of signed with Zenimax or something instead of Activision. It seems like Activision is really just trying to destroy Blizzard at this point. I mean who is going to buy Diablo 3 on a console which is going to be a worse UI probably and even if it's the same game, it's still nothing compared to D2.

Hmmm I can't see this as being a fun console game. Isn't it 3/4 view 3rd person like the older Diablo games. I think in this age with games like Oblivion you need to change to 1st person or 3rd person over the shoulder.

You have to realize that when these dealings were going down, the game wasn't even out yet. What should have been a mind blown moment was overshadowed by the PC release but what could Sony do? Break it off after entering a partnership with Blizzard? Wasn't going to happen.

It's isometric view, yes.
