I'll buy D3 on PS3 if it comes with the PC version for free. Similar to what Valve did with Portal 2.

Bashiok himself said he is a PC fanatic.

They are looking into console. Personally I don't think they should.
Diablo originated from PC and should stay with PC.
Too manny ppl stuck in this console erra. Bring PC gaming back up there!!!

I am going to have to agree with the "No" crowd on this.

I wouldn't touch Sony with a 10 foot pole.

I don't mind D3 on console, so long as the quality is not diminished. Seeing how D3 works, I could see it working on Ps3...


quality will be deminished.

sure except replace co-op with PVP.

Oh what I wouldn't give to have some Call of duty being able to be played xbox vs PC teams. That would be hilarious.

And to the "why not crowd" Because PC's are far superior to consoles in every way. Simply put to put a PC game on the console means that the game itself has to be dumbed down from what you could get out of a PC just to go on a console.

No. I do not want to be playing with a bunch of 9 year olds that don't have the precision of a mouse.

Make it for consoles. I really don't care. But the day cross-platform playing is enabled is the day I stop playing. Unfortunately it doesn't matter at that point; they've already got my money.

^ this. Throw two CoD/BF players in a 1v1 on cross-platform multiplayer. Watch that joysticker get demolished. Precision is key, and there is no precision with a thumbstick.

I am a PC gamer and enthusiast first and foremost, and I'm currently waiting on credit approval for an amazon card to buy an $1800 setup, but let me say for a community that claims to be mature so many in here take on the personalities of spoiled children.

i've sad for years that diablo would be a better game for console than computer. it wouldn't be procise as the computer. But really it's not one of them games where being perfect always matters. Fun factor always wins. The Lazy boy and the 65" helps win me over though.
I got IT! lets make a computer desk out of a recliner with a 60" plasma tv. bam nm PC all the way

say NO to consoles!!!..... sorry, but Diablo is and has always been a pc (and mac - unfortunately) game... i think blizzard stepping into the console arena will be the beginning of the end for the quality that we've come to know, and expect from blizzard.

just take a look at other 'console ports' of games that were on pc before... yeah they can be a bit of fun on a console, but the game is somewhat 'dumbed down' as others have put it, the graphics are a step back, since console hardware is way behind that of PC hardware, and add to that, take a FPS game for example... did you know that the target 'hitbox' of a console is about 10x the size of a PC's? ever noticed on a console when you clearly missed, but they fell down dead anyway and you thought oh .. must have been a glitch, but i'll take it anyway.. not so cool when it happens back at you though...

So why? because no one can be as accurate with a controller as they are with a mouse... how the hell can cross platform be fair in any way shape or form in that case?

really, Diablo on a console like ps3, may as well just be God of War, or 100 other (lesser) half baked games of this genre.... if people on consoles want Diablo 3, they should just get a PC, the same as if we wanted God of War, we'd get a ps3.

and no, im not biased... i do infact have 2 pc's, a wii, a xbox, xbox360, and a ps3.. i enjoy all of them, but in their own right... i have no want or desire to see a epic title/series destroyed by moving it to another platform, regardless of where it started out.

the exclusive titles of any platform have always been the best of that platform... lets keep it that way!

Unless they allow you to play with a keyboard/mouse it wont work.

Regardless, this a PC game and it should stay that way.
