If anything I'd assume they'd treat it like they're treating people who have the annual pass but are purchasing the CE. When you register the CE to your battle.net account you are given the approximate retail value of the game as credit towards your wow account (4 months of game time).Because they're treating it like a different game. They aren't even really talking about making Diablo 3 for consoles. They're talking about "making a Diablo game for consoles." Whether you buy the PC version digitally, at retail, buy a CE, or buy the annual pass, you're still in the end getting the same game. The console version isn't the same game. It's its own thing.
Don't see why it wouldn't work the same way for a console version of the game, except that the console version won't come out until long after the pc version. Meaning that a free copy of Diablo 3 will no longer be a part of their incentive program to sign up for the annual pass.
