We're excited to announce that Diablo III is being developed for the Sony PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. We'll also be adapting the award-winning action–role-playing game for Sony's newly announced platform: the PlayStation® 4!

Sit Down, Relax, and Kill Some Demons
Diablo III for the PS3™/PS4™ will be based on the core PC game and feature all the latest updates, including Paragon levels, the Infernal Machine event, Monster Power, Brawling, and more. This version is also being tailored with customized controls, a new user interface, and a dynamic camera perspective to provide an awesome Diablo III experience for PlayStation gamers.

Players will be able to wage war against the Burning Hells on their own in single-player games as well as team up and destroy countless demons with their fellow Nephalem in multiplayer games. For multiplayer, players will have the option to choose between four-player online (complete with matchmaking) and four-player local co-op modes for their couch-based warfare.

Follow the Falling Star to Boston, MA

The PS3 version of Diablo III will make its public debut at PAX East in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center from March 22–24, and attendees of the convention will be some of the first to defend the world of Sanctuary via handheld controllers.

We call upon all heroes to join us at the official Blizzard booth, where you can enjoy some fast-paced hack-and-slash, participate in fun contests and giveaways, and learn more about the game. (Community managers will also be on-site, and they look forward to answering your questions and slaying some of Diablo's many malevolent minions with you.)

For more information, be sure to check out the official press release, and stay tuned to Diablo3.com for future updates.

    I've been doing quite well with MP 10 without using the RMAH and spending ridiculous amounts of time playing the game. Over the years you develop a good network of friends that look out for each other and we all play WoW/D3/other games and have fun. There's a lot of trading between us for the amount of items we find in D3.

    Don't be bitter because everything in life isn't how YOU want it.

    It's definitely a very grindy game, but I know what he means. For me I feel like its because I can actually get something that will improve my character. Multiple times I've found upgrades at end game in PoE. I've played D3 for a lot longer than I have PoE and I can safely say that I never found anything that I could use. Everything came from the AH. Maybe I'm just lucky/unlucky, but when I grind in PoE I feel like I might be rewarded, and when I grind in D3 I feel like I shouldn't even bother picking up the rares because I'm not going to get anything even worth selling. Maybe I'm just pessimistic when it comes to D3 :P.

    I honestly think all people who would like to play D3 are already playing/already played and stopped. Maybe there are some people exclusive to consoles that might buy this, but nowadays, I don't think a person who really likes games would stick to only one platform, specially considering pretty much everyone has a PC, so PC games are much more readilly accessible.

    I am more interested on what Blizzard has planned next. I am pretty sure D3 is just the first step to a much larger plan of Blizzard launching console games in a regular basis. On that I am excited!
    You'd be surprised. An example of how many people own consoles that don't own PCs is Skyrim. It sold the most on the 360, even though the PC version is considered the 'best' and has modding capability. There are plenty of people who have 'so-so' pcs and plenty of people who simply don't like to deal with all the complexities of PC(I know quite a few people who just like the 'put in and play' factor of a console, whereas sometimes in the PC gaming world, there's incompatibility issues with software, hardware, and more). I've seen this a lot with plenty of games(take a cruise through sites like VGchartz and compare for yourself).
