Diablo 3 will be making its debut on the PlayStation 3 later this year. During E3, we had the chance to check out the console version. See what we thought before heading to the comments to talk about it.
But what’s different about this version, aside from those two bigger details? Well, for starters the UI has been overhauled to better fit the PS3. You can see in the screens below that instead of dominating the lower portion of your screen, the health and hotbar sit off the lower left. If there are two or more players playing on the same screen, one hotbar and health bar goes into each corner to help the screen from getting too crowded. Similarly, when playing with multiple folks, the screen zooms in and out based on how far you are from each other. If a friend goes AFK, they’ll be dragged along with you for a while, so you don’t have to wait for them. If you portal to a new area, they may be left behind but when they return from their potty break they can easily portal back to you.
