Hmmm... Need more evidence >;3
That said, this is evidence that they are working on it, NOT proof that it will definitely happen. At this moment in time the plan is to bring D3 to consoles. There is nothing to say that the plan cannot change. Don't get too attached to the idea of D3 coming to consoles, because it may get scrapped. See: Starcraft Ghost.
But yeah, it's definite, 100% proof that they are working on it right now. You really do not need any more evidence than Bashiok's word.
As for my opinion on the matter? Sounds pretty cool. I'll still get it on PC obviously, but hey: if Blizzard can break into the console market, then I cannot complain. D3 should work pretty well on console too: I remember playing Baldur's Gate on the PS2. Fun times were had.
I also trust Blizzard won't 'dumb down' the PC version because of the console version. So yeah. This is all gravy to me.
This was announced forever and eternity ago. This tweet may be new but it's literally nothing they haven't already said. Here we go, I even brought the sauce

1% of the Heroes control 100% of the winrates
As long as they don´t spend more time making the console version good and fixate on the PC version, I don´t care
It seems like the console version will take a lot longer to come out than the PC version (which is already taking a long time itself), and will likely be pretty scaled back (current consoles are really ancient), so I'm not really sure if it'll do all that well. It might do OK, but I don't know if it'll do well enough to justify the extra design time and cost.
Also there was Warcraft 2 and the first Diablo on the origional Playstation.
And not forgetting the cancelled Starcraft Ghost.
To be honest Blizzard should keep away from the console market, it just seems like selling out on the PC market to me. but, move with the times I guess.

AFAIK, blizzard also had a job opening posted for just this a few months ago.
Here ya go;

I guess that was far from a comfirmationOriginally Posted by Bashiok
MoP is awesome.
So they have a design team, this doesnt prove 100% that its coming to console as you can see he never said yes. he just said that there is a design team looking into it.
Heck, I even have doubts that they will go through with the console version, because in all honest there seems to be no demand for one. The market and the fans are on the PC.
I think "coming soon" may be stretching the word "soon" even for Blizzards standards on this one
Now I just hope that for next gen Microsoft and Sony will allow for games to use mouse and keyboard (developer decision, obviously all FPS games won't use them) and MMOs on consoles. Like a dream comming true.
