Diablo 3: no cross-play between PS3 & PC

Diablo 3 is heading to PS3 and PS4, but players on both formats will not be able to team up with PC players running the game via Battle.net.

Over on the Blizzard forums, community manager Vaeflare said on the matter, “While we think cross-platform play would be awesome, there are currently no plans to allow connectivity between PlayStation Network and Battle.net (this is pretty standard for most games that have PC and console support).

“As a result, the characters on your Battle.net account and PlayStation account will also remain separate. In terms of allowing an analog controller hookup for the PC, we don’t have any plans for that kind of support right now.

“Similarly, since Diablo III for console was designed with a controller in mind, the PlayStation version of Diablo III will not support USB mice or keyboards.”

What do you make of the above? Would cross-play have been a welcome feature?

we do know however that both the PS3 and PS4 versions of Diablo 3 will support offline play and local co-op. Check out the details here.
