Vote: The Biggest Current Issues with Diablo 3?
Checking the blue tracker today and a reply from Lylirra caught my eye. I thought it would make a good topic for a vote, so I read over the first ten pages, tabulating how often specific complaints came up. Of course more replies treated the “single biggest issue” part like old people treat the “ten […]
Diablo 3 Seasons: Endings, Beginnings, and Scheduling
Almost everyone on my friends list and in the IncGamers HC West clan is playing Seasons now, so conversation has been focused on that reality. How long will Season One last? Are Seasons going to run a consistent amount of time? How much warning will we get before one ends and the next one begins? […]

PreOrder PS3 Diablo 3: Get an Infernal Helm

Posted 29 Apr 2013 by

Blizzard has announced a preorder prize for the upcoming Diablo 3 Playstation 3 console game; a special in-game helm that can be worn from level 1, and grants an exp bonus to the user.

As foretold in ancient Horadric texts, Diablo® III is coming soon to the PS3™. The launch date still has yet to be announced, but you can prepare for it now AND receive this exclusive Infernal Helm in-game item in the process, simply by preordering Diablo III at your local retailer.

Wearable at level 1, the Infernal Helm confers a +EXP bonus to help you whip your new PlayStation® characters into tip-top shape. Plus, it looks sweet as hell (pun intended) on all five mortal heroes of Sanctuary—Witch Doctor, Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Wizard, and Monk. Keep in mind that the redeemable key for the Infernal Helm, which you will find in your preordered copy of Diablo III on launch day, will apply to all of your PS3™ characters, but will not transfer to any PC characters.

We’ll be announcing a launch date for Diablo III on the PS3™ as it gets closer. In the meantime, get your preorder lined up, and begin preparing your living room for the imminent arrival of your three closest demon-slaying friends.

You’re going to need a bigger couch.

This prize is for the Playstation version of the game; not something your current PC/Mac characters can use, and no, there’s still no release date. You have to kind of zoom in on the hat to make out the details, but it’s a sleek, elongated face covering thing, and there appear to be four little crystals in orbit around it.

Not that you’re going to much care how it looks in-game, if the exp bonus is good. I’ve worn the Cain’s Laurel helm on multiple new characters in the past, and I don’t even remember what color it is, much less whether or not I like the graphics.
