@Diablo just tweeted it out
@Diablo What patch will the game go live with?
@Blaine8723 The console version will ship with up to patch 1.0.7 content.
@diablo will you release future patches for it like you do for pc?
@Blaine8723 Most likely! We're working with Sony & Microsoft to ensure that we're able to deliver updates to the console version.
@diablo one last question, will the drop rates be different on console than on pc, because of no auction house?
@Blaine8723 Slightly! It takes a "less drops, better quality" approach -- like what we want to do with PC. <---------------------- HOW DOES A CONSOLE GET THIS FIRST????????
They are launching the game with "Less, Drops, Better Quality" and giving them Patch 1.07. The patch everyone was happy with except for the loot.
Loots like the console version is getting the BETTER LOOT in patch 1.07 when our PATCH 1.08 STILL Didnt get this feature!!!
I bet they removed those random rolls as well so DEX doesnt end up on a WIZARD WAND ect...
BLIZZARD IS A TOTAL FAILURE!!!!! SMH!!!
I dont follow twitter, but i found the recent Tweets curtesy of "BlaineTrain" and his post at

If i had to guess? They needed something that would entice current D3 fans to buy it. I bet our "fix" comes out when the expansion comes out "after console release" to entice the rest of the pc users who didn't hop on the console bandwagon to buy it.
There is no way the expansion would come out before the console. It would hinder sales badly. Looks like 2014 is the rear of the expansion. They wouldnt dare to release it during the holidays and mess up there ps3/4 sales.
I'm just not buying anything from Blizzard until 6 months after when I see reviews. I won't buy the console version on principle however. Even if they stated with every copy would come with a 60'' SmartTV
Look at the 7th tweet down by Blaine8723

Exactly! The pc version was designed around the AH and everyone said it wasn't. The game has bad loot on purpose. The Console version doesnt have an AH so they need to design the loot around that.
I've been saying this for a long time now. The AH is about Micro-transactions only. They are in it for the money now. Blizzard lost all respect and there reputation and as time goes on they keep doing things that are proving the fans correct like this one.
