Diablo III On Consoles Would Be “On Par” With PC Version

Share And Comment

Diablo III is possibly the most anticipated PC release in years, but it seems for now at least console gamers will be missing out. That could change in the near future however as Blizzard is still exploring the possibility of releasing the dungeon crawler for Xbox 360 and PlayStation gamers. If it does happen, it wont cut any corners, at least according to any interview given to CVG by the boss of Blizzard, Paul Sams.

He said that; “We think that the way we built it for the PC may need some tweaking, but it will ultimately be the type of game that can really make sense and be really fun, well polished and a true Blizzard-level experience on a console.

“We get a lot of questions about why we haven’t made a game for consoles before and I tell them the same thing I tell them about business models: we don’t let business models or platforms drive our decisions. Those are secondary to what’s the most important aspect for us which is the gameplay.

“We have to make sure the game is great and it’s something that everyone wants to play. If we provide a great game, a great experience, the business model – if we’re being fair with you – will work.”

Diablo III launches on PC on May 14th, hopefully we will hear more about a console version soon.
