Diablo 3 Console Guide and Reviews

Posted 3 Sep 2013 by

nepahlem globeAlthough the console version of Diablo 3 is very similar, having the same zones, monsters, classes, skills and systems such as Paragon, Infernal Machine etc there are some pretty fundamental differences.

Whether you’re completely new to Diablo 3 and thinking of getting the console version or an old hand but thinking maybe you’d like to take your D3 to the lounge the DiabloWikiDiablo 3 Console page on Diablo Wiki provides a good overview of the differences between the two versions.

There are details on the reworked Monster Power, different game modes, differences in functionality, items and even a nice like breakdown of the history of Blizzard’s teasing and eventual announcement that a console version was coming.

  • If you’re just getting your hands on the console, we’ve got a Diablo 3 console first impressions thread in our D3 Console forum. Compare/contrast to D3 PC, or whatever else you first notice.
  • Remember to enable the DiabloWikiElective Mode so you can use whichever skills you like.
  • We’ve added several more reviews to our DiabloWikiDiablo 3 Console reviews article in the wiki. The professional reviewer scores are running a little below the ratings for the D3 PC/Mac, but the user scores are vastly higher; all green so far on Metacritic for PS3 and Xbox. Very different story from the “hate the RMAH and online-only” ragegasm we saw back in May 2012.
