Announce Diablo III For the Consoles Already!
Blizzard just keeps flirting with the possibility of “Diablo III” on the consoles, even going so far as to post job openings on their web site, but they still haven’t announced a damned thing. This is driving me insane. Are we getting D3 on the consoles or not? Of course, cooing Blizzard softly into the land of Xbox and Playstation is like leading a skittish horse to water, especially after the atrocious experiences they’ve had in the past. Anyone remember “Starcraft 64?” I still shiver at the thought.
But this is different. Consoles are much more powerful now, and “Torchlight” is out there, embarrassing them, showing them that this genre can not only be accomplished in this neighborhood, but mastered. They have no reason not reach a larger base of gamers.
I know, I know, they’re probably worried about the Auction House, as well as enforcing their “Always Online” policy. Look, as far as I’m concerned, you can leave all that stuff out if you have to. Or just release it on the notoriously promiscuous PS3, whatever. I understand consoles are always going to lag behind when it comes to innovative stuff like that.
What I want is the core experience of “Diablo,” on my Xbox 360. I don’t think that’s unreasonable. And while you’re at it, why not port over “Diablo” and “Diablo 2″? I will love you long time.
