Diablo 3 Console FAQ

I asked it here: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9793090100#1

But in-short, lets say my friend has a PS3, and I don't, but we both have PSN accounts. My friend buys D3 for PS3, and currently, he has a profile for himself linked to his PSN account.

Would it be possible for me to create a profile on his PS3, link my currently-existing PSN account, and would it be possible for both of us to sign-in at the same time during D3 and both of us earn trophies?

Hope this hasn't been asked before:

Will the console versions have community profile pages where we can view our characters?

Would be a large incentive for me to pick this up for maintenance Tuesdays if I can show off my characters...


Unfortunately not, it would really come down to Sony or MS doing this I think. Because the online services are not run by blizz it may not be up to them, I'm not really sure.

Replies to your thread and because I'm feeling a bit lazy today copy and paste job. ;)

"The way D3 works you can login to your PSN account while the game is loaded, that is how you can access your own hero if you have uploaded it.

However only the main account will receive trophies when playing, You don't both receive them.

Just to be clear:

Friend logs into PSN, loads D3 selects his hero.

Go to add another player, login to your PSN account and select your hero.

Both play together but only the 'base'(for lack of a better word) account gets trophies.

Hope this makes sense. "

Will you be able to download D3 from xbox live? My xbox loves to num num on my game discs. I have looked everywhere for an answer on this subject and all I seem to be able to find is that you will be able to get it from playstation network, but no one seems to know about xbox live.

Sony and MS have nothing to do with that.

It's all for Blizzard to do.

Dunno why people keep telling people the wrong information.

Honestly I thought it was already up for preorder on xbox live as well as PSN as people have said they got the preorder theme.

Is it not showing when you check the store? Perhaps I was wrong.

Reaper of Souls has not been announced as of yet for Consoles. In interviews the devs have stated that their primary focus right now is developing the PC version and getting that out to the public. After that they will evaluate the best way to proceed with the console version.

So the least we know is that they definitely won't receive a simultaneous release.

Here is a good interview in which they address your exact question (@ 4:40);

Hope that helped Amidget. :)

they should make it so that you can transfer your pc version over to the console version(one way transfer), i would have loved to play d3 on the consol but dont think that i will buy it for full price sins i already have it and thats a shame think the game would be alot more fun on console.

No cross play... lame FFXiV has cross play Ps3 and PC can play together, Ive been playing it as of late anyways, and its amazing. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzi played d2 for 9-10 years, and I cant believe I am saying this, IM SWITCHING TO FFXIV, D3 came out later than FFXiV and it doesn't have cross-play, job well-done blizzard.

Paragon 2.0 isn't on console. I'll try and find out if there is any changes to it but I know for sure it isn't the same as Paragon 2.0

There is no AH/RMAH on the console version. I can't comment on the other, it's a design choice by the devs.

Paragon on the console has shared level and rewards per league. So one Softcore character at P100 = all Softcore characters at P100.

I dont know if there is an answer to this yet, but I am curious: In the pc version, i use SPACE to station my characters while i cast in one place and just turn in the directions i wish to attack in, is this option/ability available in the console?
