One life to live: Tis the Season
The race to 70, the absence of gold,artisans,hellfire rings, and high level friends to boost you. It’s all gone away and it’s hard not to be excited. I still recall the rush of playing my first WD on launch day, wading through it all with no support and no fallback. Did reaching 60 take awhile […]
Rift Map Bugs and Improvements in 2.1.2

Official Diablo 3 PS3 and PS4 Announcement

Posted 21 Feb 2013 by

We tuned in last night to catch it as it happened and this morning Blizzard issued an official press release announcing Diablo 3 for the PS4 and PS3.

The fate of Sanctuary will soon rest in the hands of PlayStation gamers around the world. Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that it is developing Diablo III, the latest entry in its award-winning action–role-playing-game series, for the Sony PlayStation3 computer entertainment system. The company also today confirmed plans to adapt the game for Sony’s newly announced PlayStation4, its next-generation computer entertainment system.

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.

Blizzard also announced today that the PS3 version of Diablo III will be shown live at PAX East, taking place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center from March 22–24. Attendees there will be the first in the world to pick up a controller and experience the fast-paced action and visceral gameplay ofDiablo III via the new custom-designed interface.

Diablo III looks and plays great on the PlayStation,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We put a lot of care and thought into the PlayStation version to make sure it would deliver an authentic Diablogaming experience, and we’re really pleased with the results. We can’t wait for players to try it out at PAX East.”
