That was a worthy convention! GLORIOUS!
After three action-packed days, PAX East came to a close on Sunday evening, and we're delighted to have been able to share our first playable demo of Diablo III for the PlayStation 3 with attendees. We were absolutely humbled by everyone's energy at the convention, as well as all the feedback and kind words we received from those who had the chance to stop by and play our stuff!
Here are just a few stats we compiled from the event:
- # of hours the Expo Hall was open: 26
- # of Diablo III stations at the Blizzard booth: 20
- # of demos completed: over 2000!
In addition to hosting demos on the show floor, Josh Mosqueira, Julia Humphreys, and Matthew Berger from our console design team also had the pleasure of speaking with press and fan sites from all over the globe this past weekend about the game and its features, tackling a variety of topics including how the game was developed, what the differences are between the console and PC versions, and why the PlayStation is proving to be such a natural platform for Diablo III.

We also want to give a HUGE high five to our booth buddies in Boston for their announcement of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft!
