Diablo® III

Diablo 3 Console FAQ

Sorry if this has already been asked. So lets say I have my level 46 Barbarian and that is the only character I have on the local. Then my little sister wants to come and play with me. Will she have a level 46 whatever with just the vendor gear or will she join with a level 1 character?

She would only have a lvl 1 hero.

It's kinda the downfall for easy co-op, but I guess blizz had to drawn the line there to stop people getting free lvl 60's or such.

Shame they couldn't make a temp hero system somehow.

I missed this when it first came out. I suppose it is a good FAQ for it's time but feel half the questions were things I'd never ask unless it was officially announced by Blizzard such features would exist. It is completely obvious to me that different platforms would not cross, etc. For even one of these features to be implemented would have certainly raised my eyebrows for sure. It would mean Blizzard had alot of time on their hands to add different features, not something that happens during the design process of a difficult ARPG genre.

It is an interesting note that Hardcore characters can be resurrected AND have no lag. If I was a Hardcore fan I'd be furious about this. :) For several reasons. Hardcore should never be able to be brought back to life, if they can they are not Hardcore to begin with. Second, no lag is just WAY too fair. ;)

Perhaps these things are obvious to you but you'd be surprised how many people create threads asking these types of questions. ;P

I'm a Hardcore fan and I couldn't care less if players can be brought back to life. Why would I? The game does not have any leaderboards or ladder-type features so it's not a competition in any way. If someone chooses to restore their character(s) then so be it, doesn't change how I will play in the slightest.

I'd say the absence of lag is a total plus. ;)

You can look at other people's profiles and see what they've accomplished in soft and hardcore on PC anyway. You can't tell me people don't compete with the whole paragon race thing going on. LOL. Of course hardcore people would be irritated if someone figured out how to revive. They want the people they see to be legit and unhacked. It will only be a matter of time before they allow console players to view other profiles online the same PC users do. It may not be a direct competition but it's there.

As a side note, I'm never buying a console but at least it gave us a head start for playtesting on features that will go into the expansion for the PC version.

The EU and Aus PSN stores say it comes with the preorder items and a preorder theme. Does the US store not have those details?

You can buy digital copies of the PC games and cards for HS when it's out. But otherwise it's just for RMAH.

Will the expansion be releasing for the console version? If so, will it be close to the PC release date? I was thinking of switching to the console version to be able to play with more of my friends(much more of them game on Xbox than PC) but I don't know that I want to if I'll be getting new content much more quickly on the PC.

While blizzard haven't confirmed this, they have said they hope too.

However the PC version comes first so it's very unlikely the console expansion will come out at the same time as PC.
