German retailer lists Diablo III for PS3, no 360 version in sight

Monday, 4th June 2012 11:11 GMT By Johnny Cullen

German store redcoon has listed a PS3 version of Diablo III on its site

The retailer has it listed for a pricing of €66.66 on the site and features a box-art mock-up featuring the game’s box, USK rating and PS3 logo.

A 360 version of the Blizzard RPG is nowhere to be found, though.

While it hasn’t been actually announced in an official capacity, Blizzard has stated time after time its been experimenting with a console version of Diablo III.

At the launch of the PC version, Blizzard then said it “wasn’t experimenting” with it. Make of that as you will.

If the unlikely does happen and that this is more than a simple mistake, details are bound to come at the Sony E3 presser tomorrow. Details here.

    I doubt this means anything, frankly.

    Actually it make sense that they are making it for PS3 because of psn open platform just like Valve did with Portal 2.

    I hope this is true. I have it on mac but i have to run it on low specs and would love to have this on my ps3 so it would look better and be able to play with everyone on my friends list (seeing as how I’m primarily a console gamer).

    I know it’s a computer franchise, but Blizzard would be missing out on a lot of sales by not bringing it to consoles. While it wouldn’t control quite as intuitively (especially on the inventory screen), it could certainly be brought over without comprising the controls much at all.

    Is there much point in a console port? Anyone that does want to play diablo will play it on or has got it already on pc/mac, the sales figures for this clearly show this. Will they really expand their fanbase by much at all by releasing on 360/ps3?

    @7 If Johnny posts something from the forum then he won’t credit the person who put in the forum unless Colin posted it.

    If, and that’s a big if, this is about Diablo 3 being exclusive to PS3 among consoles, then Kotaku / forum / source has ruined Sony’s BIGGEST surprise and megaton.

    Seriously, imagine if we didn’t know a thing and then during Sony Conference, suddenly Blizzard heads showed up and revealed Diablo 3 for PS3.

    Multiple retailers also listed The Witcher 2 for PS3 and The Witcher 1 for PS3/X360 and look how that turned out.

    As a player who have 2 60 levels characters (played 250 hours) and almost beat inferno i must say DREAM ABOUT IT.

    Unless they will completely redesign skills (that require kite and precision) and nerf Hell-Inferno difficulty because you can’t kite on the dualshock controller… Because dualshock controller for fast movement and tanking is horrible piece of trash.

    For example Wizard as a class that require precision a lot (Hydra, Energy Twister, Blizzard, Meteor, Teleport ) is impossible for the controller. Most of his runes are based on the Mouse precision and Kite. “Kite strategy” is important for Diablo, especially if you are playing on harder difficulties.

    To make Diablo on the PS3 or 360 you need to cut and nerf 50% of the game. You need to cut some classes abilities and create new ones and you also need to nerf some Elite/Champion abilities or even nerf them completely.
    Not happening.

    @11 What gear do you need to avoid being one shot by normal mobs in Act III? Currently got 600+ resists and 30k hp.

    I think this is completly fake. But who knows? We’ll see about that. Bisides, i prefer playing Diablo 3 on PC not on console even if i rarely play games on PC.

    @13, what’s your class and what’s your DPS right now?

    #15 2 years ago

    @15 Wizzie! DPS is 23k, can raise to 26k via spec changes but definitely get 1 shot if I do that (i.e. glass cannon).

    Also I agree D3 would be a joke for classes like wiz on console.

    Dunno, i think your DPS is good for third act.

    @1,2,3 Doesn’t it make perfect sense though?

    Obviously Blizzard want to make those 15% off their auction house.

    You think Microsoft might have a thing or two to say about that?

    I reckon they would. Not that Sony couldn’t or wouldn’t, but they do seem a lot more open to third parties when it comes to anything except SDKs.
