Blizzard just confirmed that Ozzy Osbourne will play as Blizzcon next week, as previously rumoured.
“Our goal with BlizzCon is to deliver an unforgettable weekend of entertainment, and we can’t think of a better way to close out this year’s show than having Ozzy rock the house,” said Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime.
We’re going! PR after the break.

There may be bad blood between metal legends Ronnie James Dio and Ozzy Osbourne, but according to Doublefine president Tim Schafer, it didn’t stain production of Brutal Legend. Instead, the developer sent Dio packing because Tim Curry was “a better fit” for a character called Doviculus.
“Ronnie James Dio is an amazing singer and truly one of the great figures of Metal,” Schafer said in a statement, “but as the character of Doviculus evolved, we realized that Tim Curry was a better fit for the part. Anyone who has seen his amazing performance as the Lord of Darkness in the movie Legend knows why we cast him in the role of Doviculus, Emperor of the Tainted Coil.”
Dio will be missed, but if there’s one guy we’ve learned never to question, it’s Tim Schafer. Guess we’ll just have to settle for playing clips from “Rainbow in the Dark” every time Doviculus speaks. Denial cures all ills, after all.

How do you put Ozzy Osbourne into Brutal Legend? Do you motion capture? No, sir, you do not.
“We didn’t mo-cap,” Doublefine boss Tim Schafer told VG247 at E3. “We tried to capture the essence with this really great animation.
“[With] motion capture you get literally what people move like but we went for animation that represents the feel of Ozzy Osbourne; the motions are bigger than life in a way.
“The game has a really exaggerated art style, and [we did] motion in the same way.”
Schafer told us Osbourne was “great fun to work with” and went so far to call him a “hoot”. He’s not a gamer though, apparently, said Tim.
Brutal Legend, Ozzy and all, hits this autumn for PS3 and 360.

As if Rob Halford, Lemmy, Jack Black and Lita Ford weren’t enough to convince you to get Brutal Legend, then maybe Ozzy Osbourne being in it will.
Yes, that’s right, the Prince of Fucking Darkness himself.
No details were given on the character he plays.
