    Just for the record, if anyone’s not concerned one bit about spoilers, you can do a search online and find tons and tons of leaked material for the upcoming Reaper of Souls, including one of the major bosses. It’s been around online for months, and it includes things like the actual in-game models, text from new lore, etc.

    Before someone says such stuff could be fake, know that the sheer amount of leaked content would mean that a ridiculously dedicated group of people would’ve had to take weeks to months of working exclusively on these things just to be able to perpetuate a hoax.

    Is there no hope that this will be released on PS3? My Diablo III progress up until now is not something I can just casually abandon and then rebuy on PS4. Do they even have a system to import your character and lootz from the PS3 one?

    Nothing like that has been announced yet. I won’t be surprised if you can indeed import your characters from PS3/360 though.

    No other platforms than PC/PS4 has been announced yet, most likely a deal with Sony like the current gen versions (360 version got announced later).

    Ok apparently (some guy said he heard it on the stream) you can import your PS3 characters to the PS4 version.

    @5 Yep it says here you can do just that.
    “One last treat for current fans of Diablo III on PS3: you’ll be able to fully transfer your characters to the PS4 version when it comes out. Be aware, though, that this is a one-way transfer. Once your level 60 Demon Hunter is migrated to Diablo III on PS4, given the amount of gameplay elements and scenarios introduced in the next-gen version, there’s no going back! Not that you’d want to go back, after seeing it on PS4.”

    I don’t wanna come across as a moaning cunt, but if they don’t bring it to PS3 that’s shite. And if they do plan to, they should say so…
