    Big news hit today, Bashiok, a head Blizzard employee, responded to questions of Diablo III's release on consoles. Unless we find that his account was hacked (which would make the manor in which this news was released more sensible), this is a real confirmation.

    I really am against this move to bring Diablo to consoles. I really feel there's no need for it and it will be wasting the teams resources (at least some of it) by making them focus on the console version. It'll just slow the progress of the PC version if you ask me.

    I think this will be a big flop. I am curious though how, if at all, they will link the ps3 xbox and pc/mac all together. Otherwise, I feel it won't have the population to keep an AH.

    I think they are just expanding their profit margins for silly console versions which I don't think will work out well.

    I'm really not surprised to see it happen. I'm not sure how easy the controls are going to be with a controller though. The keyboard definitely makes the game playable with the abilities. I bet there is going to be some kind of action wheel.

    I can't think yet as will the development of this game on consoles. I try to imagine a possible scenario, but still not successful. I hope this landing in the world of consoles is accompanied by substantial changes in the gameplay or how to develop the story. Would be a shame that the game consoles were a mere copy of what we saw in the PC. Anyway, we should expect an official announcement.

    Agreed, how can you use all of the skills in a timely manner without a keyboard? I would think it would be fairly clunky. These types of games are meant for mice and keyboards! I'll stick to the PC versions....

    Well that will make things more interesting, Im going to enjoy playing with a controller instead for a keyboard and mouse, always been more of a console gamer than a PC gamer. The controls are going to get some used to though.

    Agreed, I'm mostly a console gamer, so I wouldn't mind switching from a keyboard to a controller. I'm going to reserve judgment and wait to see the console version. It could work.
