Blizzard Planning Big Diablo 3 News For BlizzCon This Year

Diablo 3 is the next Blizzard game hitting PC (hopefully) sometime next year, but according to an interview Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime had with MVC, the game may be coming to Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles as well. I'll allow a second for the PC gamers reading this to go and punch a wall.

In the interview, Morhaime said, "We haven’t made any decisions yet, but a lot us feel that if ever there was a Blizzard franchise that could play well as a console game, then [Diablo's] probably it." We've known that Blizzard has been toying with the idea of Diablo 3 on the console for a while, as Morhaime noted on the subject during DICE and the company listed a job opening for a Senior Producer, Console for Diablo 3 in Feburary. Right now, they're still investigating if it could work on console, but with dungeon crawlers like Torchlight translating so well  from the PC to the Xbox 360, I wouldn't be surprised if they took the leap.

I'm really upset by this news. PC gamers don't often get exclusive masterpieces which we can call our own like Playstation 3 users get Uncharted, or Xbox 360 users get Halo and Gears of War. I'm sure the minds at Blizzard will make Diablo 3 absolutely fantastic on consoles, but for me, I can't look forward to Diablo 3 coming out on a console for all to enjoy. As someone who played Final Fantasy XI on PC back in the day, a game that was constantly inhibited by "PS2 limitations" I'm terrified for what this means for Diablo 3.

This development has Acitivision written all over it.
