After being an incredibly successful PC release, Diablo III will be getting released before the end of the year on Ps3. The Blizzard developed game will also be available on Ps4 in the future. The game has been one of the surprises of the Playstation Meeting back in February, where Sony started revealing some details on its next-gen console.
Diablo III on Ps3 won’t be a simple port of the game: Blizzard has stated multiple times that bringing the game on consoles was going to be a challenge since the interface and some of the features had to be reworked so that they may function properly on a console environment and with a joypad. According to a few reports from this years’ Game Developers Conference Diablo III on Ps3 will be as fun as on PC. The Ps3 version of Diablo III will also have an offline mode, a local and online co-op mode but lack the controversial Auction House.
Blizzard has announced today that Diablo III is now available for pre-order: all gamers preordering the game will receive the Infernal Helm which will give an XP boost once equipped.
With preorders now open, we can expect Blizzard to announce a release date in the near future.
