Creating good random map generators is a difficult task in video games, and something we’ve seen done with relative success in all of the Diablo games. Diablo 1 had four dungeon types with quite different maps for each area, though all were just big squares with different arrangements of the pieces within them. (The Hellfire […]

Diablo 3 Console Rumors: Release Date and Xbox Screenshots?Posted 29 Mar 2013 by
A couple of Diablo 3 Console rumors to go with all the facts and reality.
Site reader Shadow Hado mailed in to say that his local GameStop in Wisconsin had box art for the PS3 version of Diablo 3 with a posted release date of 19 November, 2013. As he points out, that is in fact a Tuesday, and the preorder display was just like all the other games on preorder with actual dates. Of course we saw fake/wrong release dates hundreds of times pre-D3’s release, all of which were wrong, so take it with as many grains of salt as you require.
Elsewhere, something called sm1ttysm1t.com took a look at the file names of the screenshots on the Diablo 3 press CD from PAX East, and noticed something interesting. Half of the screens have PS3 in the image name, and the other half have Xbox in the image title. Furthermore, all of the Xbox shots do *not* have the UI interface showing, while all of the PS3 shots do.
Is this an inadvertent leak that confirms an Xbox version is coming? Blizzard has strongly hinted at that, but it’s not yet confirmed. The author of the site mailed Blizzard to ask, and got a not-entirely-convincing explanation:
I saw a few typos and mislabeled skills/locations in Diablo 3 screenshot names of past press CDs, but those were obviously just human error. This, though? I guess anything’s possible, but it’s hard to see why they’d label shots without the UI as “Xbox.” It’s also hard to believe they’d leak word of the Xbox in this fashion, though. Mysterious!
