Blizzard just announced that Diablo III is coming to Xbox 360 on September 3rd, 2013.

    Not surprised, but still nice. I’d rather get Torchlight 2 though

    • ikari_paul

      or you could get “Path of Exile”, which is amazing, much better than D3, imo

      • Hugoku

        Ah, looks interesting. Too bad my PC is really obsolete.

        • ikari_paul

          shame. doesnt it work, even on low settings?

  • Wienclaw

    Yeah not surprised. Blizzard likes moneys.

  • tabicat

    How’s the co-op in this game?

  • ReadTheArticlePlz

    Will we just be able to play or will we have to have, and log into, a blizzard account to play this?

    • ikari_paul

      do we have to be always online, like the pc version? that would be also nice to know

      • usrev

        i doubt you will need to be always online, they had to have that because of the real money auction house on the pc version. that isn’t in the console version so shouldn’t need it

    • Hugoku

      PS3/4 has been confirmed to be offline. I’m pretty sure the 360 version will be as well.

  • ReadTheArticlePlz

    I wonder when we will find out the price. Surely they won’t be trying to charge full price for a game that’s been out for as long as this has.

    • GmailIsDown

      but it won’t have always online requirement

  • Ken

    I will just wait and get it for PS4, since i will be done with Xbox once i get a ps4.

    • Does Not Equal

      That’s great,

    • MaximMillion

      Cool story bro

  • BostonSup

    If you are planning on buying an Xbox One, I’d wait for the game. Worse case is that it doesn’t come out and by then you can get the game cheaper.

    I think that most games from August and on will make it to the Xbox One, especially if it is a big game. Chances are the new console will be out in November, so the big titles will want to get onto the ‘next gen’ system too.

  • Fernando Coli Viotto

    I would say that Diablo 3 sux but everyone already knows that.

    Still, I’m curious about how the multiplayer would work. Are Xbox Live interfacing with Battle.Net somehow?

  • Forsythia

    Pretty awesome! :)

    “The Xbox 360 version of Diablo III will be unleashed on September 3″ — I wonder if by Version they mean as compared to the PC/PS3/PS4 or if they mean in comparison to the One.

    I just can’t imagine they would make it for the PS4 and not the One — but at the same time why not say something like “The One later this year” — unless they either are not getting it on the One or they have something bigger planned for it (something cool) that is exclusive to the One that they want to release at E3…

    I guess what I am trying to say in my ramble is I am looking forward to E3 and all it’s informational goodness!

  • ElektroDragon

    I hope the next gen version stays PS4 exclusive as was hinted, but I think ATVI is too greedy for that.

    • TonyLN

      Why would you want it to stay exclusive? I understand exclusive game when they are funded by MS/Sony/Nintendo — but wanting a game to be exclusive is just dumb.

      • GmailIsDown

        because he is a fanboy who thinks it is “greedy” to release a game on platforms other than the one he has.

      • ElektroDragon

        Multiple reasons:
        1) Exclusives usually take better advantage of the hardware they are on.
        2) Since sales are limited to one platform only, quality is usually higher to help ensure ROI (return on investment).
        3) It affects people’s next gen buying choices. Launch exclusives tend to be system sellers. Given my obvious displeasure with X1 vs the competition, it should have come as no surprise to you.
        4) I like companies that keep their promises or at least try not to mislead you. The way Blizzard acted during the PS4 event, if they came out and made an X1 version, I would fee like they were lying to everyone.

        Is that good enough for you?

        • MaximMillion

          C’mon, you’re just one of those obnoxious sony cronies who has no respect for healthy competition. What are you even doing here?.

        • GmailIsDown

          with your logic, almost no AAA titles should be released on PS3 as most of them were developed on Xbox 360 first and then ported to PS3. Bought Tomb Raider on PS3 for full price via Day 1 Digital and had to re-buy it again on Xbox 360 because I realized that it runs much better on 360.

          • ElektroDragon

            And next gen, the opposite will be true, it will run better on the competitor’s platform.

          • GmailIsDown

            that’s quite a statement given the fact that Sony has not even revealed their new console yet, just a controller.

          • ElektroDragon

            You have got to be kidding me. You’re right, I don’t belong on a site where the ignorance level is this obscene. Bye.

          • GmailIsDown

            care to enlighten me why? i know PS4 is more powerful in terms of raw hardware power over Xbox One, but so is PS3 over Xbox 360, PS Vita over 3DS. hardware power is one thing, ease of development is another. We don’t know anything about those yet and you are making such claim without anything to back it up. not sure who is the ignorant one here.

        • TonyLN

          The game is probably being ported from the 360 to the PS3 and from the PS3 to the PS4.

          Also, D3 is not a system seller. I am really surprised they are even making it for NextGen Consoles.

        • TonyLN

          @ElektroDragon:disqus I just read through the last 2 dozen of so posts from your profile — are you really as dumb as you sound or are you just trolling to get a rise out of people?

          • BigBernard

            Stalker alert.

    • Keshav Bhat

      ATVI? Since when did ATVI publish Diablo? Blizzard and Activision deals are separate.

  • GmailIsDown

    explosive news

    • Timothy Hames

      explosive news I just farted

  • betosobreira

    Sony took a part of its console reveal (that was not revealed) to sign that Diablo III is going to PS4 while it’s going to Xbox 360 before. #fail

    • ChristopherRaff

      It is on PS3 and Xbox on the same day, I assume PS4 and XB1 will be the same.

      • Colorfulchew

        That or the launch day of each respective console.

      • betosobreira

        Thanks for your informatiom.

  • kingcrusher

    Hmmm, hope it comes out cheap. The game has been out a while now, and the interest level is REALLY low now. To get me to buy it, bring it at $29 and I can see myself picking it up.

  • Punisher138

    If I could import my characters from the pc version I would be all about it

  • JoeGrahamcracker

    I would’ve cared last year.

  • Does Not Equal

    No, man, Diablo III is coming out for current-generation systems, not next-gen. Your survey should be for 360 and PS3.

  • Bennijin

    And the PS3/4 versions come with exclusive content wow good job Microsoft.
