Diablo® III

Which version will get most support longterm?

PC or Console?

Just another factor that could go into some of our decisions on whether or not to get the console version or not.

Do you think all future patches/expansions/updates/etc. will come out on console just as they do on PC? Obviously months and months later, but will they get them?

blizzard have said in many interviews that both versions will be supported equally but PC patches will always come out first, and then they will decide what to add from each patch to console

We plan on supporting Diablo III to the best of our ability no matter what platform it's on, but something to keep in mind is that there are a lot of inherent differences between the console and PC versions of the game. A patch for one may not translate as well to the other, but that will have to be determined on a case by case basis.

Blizzard will abandon the Console versions after launch since they have no RMAH

Must be console , Have you read the PC 2013 1Q & internal sales report? both DROP heavily! you expect blizzard to invest in a dying market?

D3 in current situation wont success in console as console play never want to play same content again again and again.....

don't use monster hunter as an example as the goal of it is very clear ( to get specific item) . D3 is waiting for a jack pot....

D3's result is just same as D1

I would think you would get more regular support with the PC version but I'm sure the console 1 will see some updates.

They don't want to play again and again? I think the Final Fantasy series would like to have a word with you.
