They already made their money from the hoards of suckers that paid full price for this thing out of the gate, what does Bliz care? They are already laughing all the way to the bank.

I wonder how well this is really going to sell on that console. 

 

There's just so many other games I'd rather be playing.  I still have Assassins Creed 3 sitting over there and I haven't touched it.  I'd rather play Boarderlands 2 than this stuff.  Haven't picked that up. 

 

I think a lot of gamers who own a PS3 are a little more used to more dynamic games than D3.  Top down view, running around dungeons killing monsters in just a constant hack and slash is something that really doesn't begin to compare with a host of better games with open worlds, 3D environments and engaging stories on the system.

Haven't read too much on this version. Will two players be able to play on the same console at once? Ya I know you will have the inability to go off screen in seperate directions, but could be fun with the kids to button mash

RIP Diablo franchise.  Once a god amongst games.  Now it finally goes the way of Gauntlet Legends.  Truly raped and exploited for everything it was worth.

 Until the expansion comes out and sells like hotcakes. The Blizzard doom and gloomers must be getting tired of being proven wrong time and again by now. 

The PS3/PS4 version of Diablo III will be based on the critically acclaimed core experience of the PC version, including all of the latest upgrades, such as the Paragon leveling system, customizable Monster Power, Brawling, and epic Legendary items. In addition, Blizzard is designing an all-new user interface, including an intuitive control scheme and a new dynamic camera perspective, that will make questing and combat in the world of Sanctuary feel like second nature on PlayStation platforms. Players will be able to battle their way through the story in single-player mode and also experience the hack-and-slash joy of destroying demons and collecting loot together with their friends via seamless four-player online and local co-op modes.

No Auction houses of any kind confirmed by lead designer Joshua Mosqueira at PAXEast. It's also not a Sony exclusive. No word in when if ever it will be on other consoles though.

My thoughts exactly. "Oh no, offline-mode is impossible", they said, "Game is based around RMAH", they said. And if it is unclear who "they" are, Blizzard.

Then they officially announce console versions, and guess what, offline-mode as standard and NO auction houses. It's one of the biggest FUs that a game company can do. Blizzard can go screw themselves, not getting a penny of my money again.

They didnt say any of that.. Ever.

Always on was DRM nothing more. And the RMAH while dumb has nothing to do with anything. The AH as a whole is the problem.. Makes it to easy to find top items so Blizzard HAD to mess with the roll quality of items. Very stupid.

The PS3 version does look pretty fun and I am  glad that the console players will once again get to experience Diablo.

I'm pretty sure they did. Either on the forums (either their own or otherwise) or some other media. It also could have been said in not-so-direct way, if you get my point.

And I wasn't saying that I agree with any of it, I'm just saying that someone from Blizzard mentioned these at one point or another. It was either before or after the launch.

I think both of the choices were awful ones, and I know that it was DRM, but also the fact that you couldn't run auction houses, especially the RMAH without the game being always-online, because of cheats and the-like, and this is what Blizzard said also. Well, at least they tried to justify it with that.

So...

 

 

Morhaime seems keen to tackle “the perception that the online requirement is nothing but an ineffective form of copy protection that has already been cracked.” He mentions that Blizzard haven’t yet encountered any functioning cracks, but suggests that security isn’t the main purpose of the online-only requirement.

“I fully understand the desire to play Diablo III offline; however, Diablo III was designed from the beginning to be an online game that can be enjoyed with friends, and the always-online requirement is the best way for us to support that design,” he says.

 

...was just a lie and the fans that defended it were wrong? Or maybe the back lash was so much they had to give in and make offline play available fearing that no one else would be buying D3 after all the negativity that some tried to deny existed? 

 

Who knows, I just think its funny as hell that the selling points for the PS3/4 version of D3 is that it has offline play and no RMAH considering those were said to be core features of D3 lol...

And yeah, I would say it is funny, but seeing as I got D3 on PC, its not really that funny LOL

 The PS3/4 version won't have the core Battle.net functionality. That was the reason for the always online requirement. Neither auction house will work without it. It's very unlikely that it will track achievements or store your characters and progress online. You won't be able to chat with your friends in other Blizzard games. The console version will be a different game. He didn't lie at all. People just don't get what he was saying.

I am most interested in the new camera system and if that will be coming to PC.  I just can't accept the mediocre game when I try to play and view it as a diablo game, it makes it absolutely stink in comparison.  Maybe if I could play it with a controller and see it from a different angle I could enjoy it for what it is:  An average game made by people that seem to have no knowledge or experience in the genre.

 

I reinstalled it recently to see if the new features made any difference in my enjoyment of it.  No, no they did not.  So sad this happened to the diablo ip.

 

Edit:  The only new camera angle I saw was at the end of the video.. is it only on bossfights?  I hope not, that is just worthless.

If I had the ability to trade in my PC version for the PS3 version, I'd do it, but I'll never buy this game again. It sounds like it'll be WAY more fun on consoles than the PC version, however, which is a real shame for what was a PC-based series.

It'll sell well, no doubt, but it's really too bad they didn't release the original PC game with the same frame of mind. Hell, even if they wanted to keep some form of DRM and just removed the AH, I'd have been happy.

Well, I mean happy as long as I ignore the crappy storyline as well.

Yeah, it's sad that only Blizzard has a means of keeping track of achievments and allowing you to chat with friends while playing games. Some day PC, Xbox, and the Playstation will have some means of tracking achievements and allowing you to talk with friends. Some day games themselves will have built in achievement systems so that you don't even need something like Battle.net to keep track of them. 

 

Feeling that someone is full of it does not mean that they were misunderstood.

To be honest, I would, reluctanly mind, accept some of the DRM as well, if the game would work as it should. Loot system as it should be, epic drops etc., revamped skill system (IMO the one they came up with in the end is rubbish) and so on.

However, seeing there is little or no hope of it ever being the game it could have been, I wish this all would just die off.

This console version thing just reignites the whole D3 discussion again, and I do believe that this one should have just been left alone.

I do agree though, that console version players will most definitely get ton more out of this game than PC users ever did.

One thing for example; because there is no AHs you will actually FIND the loot YOURSELF, wow, there is a shocker for a Diablo game.

Tbh I can't actually grasp this one...What in the world stops you FINDING the loot YOURSELF in D3 on PC? It's as simple as not clicking AH you hate so much. Voila you have self funded D3 experience.

 

However...let other people play as they like, selling gear they don't need and buying the one they want. Whole issue with AH is result of bad itemization they acknowledged and fixing atm.

 

Anyhow there is nice game called Path of Exile for D2 diehard fans. Free, with skillpoints and skilltrees, trading in chat and forums, scrolls, managing inventory, shared loot in multiplayer, potions.
