360 VS PS3 Pre-order bonus items

Can someone explain to me why the PS3 is going to have half a dozen more pre-order items than the 360?

I think its in this E3 video at around 1:45, observe Jay Wilson's cousins brothers half uncle...he use to work for Sony and that's why you got more items in the PS3 version.

Really...do any of them matter at lvl 60? Nah.

I don't think they were originally planning to have the game for xbox.

it'll be due to Sony bending over backwards to ensure they get the largest portion of the D3 console market. it appears Microsoft are too busy focusing on next-gen tv to bother with gamers.

aside from that, you can't really have playstation exclusive character inspired gear (Drake, stuff from Journey) turning up on the xbox platform. i suppose there are xbox exclusives. the equivalent would be what? Master Chief helm? Fez' fez?

It could be many factors, one could be the size of the game compared to the capacity of a blu-ray vs a dvd. maybe blizz has more room to work with a ps3 disc, but judging the small file sizes of the items, and most likely the fact that it will be a download code anyways make it less likely than the fact that its probably some deal that Blizz made with Sony.
Since the game was supposed to be only on ps3 when it was first announced, probably Microsoft made a bit later on to bring it to their console and, to keep Sony from crying foul Blizz added a few game items to sway the sales in their favor. but whos to say later on microsost wont get their own exclusives as dlc? halo/GoW armor or items maybe?

If you look at alot of original comments and previews/commercials, when the leaks starting coming out about the console version, i never once say them mention xbox, or just console, it was all about ((coming to PS3))

Pretty much this, from what I remember of the original announcement it was intended to be a PS3 exclusive, And not go to the Xbox

Sony is most likely trying to pay Blizzard to go exclusive games with them. Blizzard in return says " No but you can pay me to promote you"
-Now Blizzard sells PS4s and isn't allowed to say the word Xbox One or they will be forced to hara-kiri


How are you still on these forums? like seriously, gtfo dude. You're just an annoyance.
