While I'm glad that the podcast will potentially have a larger audience, I just don't see Diablo 3 making much of an impact in the console market. Diablo on Playstation (one) wasn't a success so I'm a bit cynical on the reception D3 will get. Granted, back in 1998 Diablo on PSX wasn't quite as attractive with sales topping out at 2.5 mil for PC/PSX (but mostly for PC).

So I guess we'll have to wait and see? It should be playable at PAX East next month which should give us a better idea as to the reception it might receive. BUT, there's no date ... will we not see it until the PS4 is upon us late this year? And how will Blizzard handle patches with the console version? Same day? Fortunately Sony isn't as much of a dick when it comes to software updates as Microsoft is (which probably explains why they haven't announced D3 coming for XBOX 360 ... then again ... maybe they're holding off until the next Xbox is announced?)

So many questions. So few answers.

well the console version will not be compatible with the pc version. So its not like all these noobs will be buying up our junk gear. lol. I think \ hope it will be a positive for the diablo community. More people playing will hopefully be a good thing. the interface looked way diff than on the computer but i guess some things have to change since ther is no mouse. i guess time will tell if its a success. I wonder what kind of sales number they are thinking would be a success. the pc version sold more than 12mill right, so would 2-4 mill be a good console number?

http://kotaku.com/5992203/the-console-version-of-diablo-iii-could-very-well-be-the-best-one

So Jason Schreier at Kotaku got a good hands on with the PS3 version of D3 and even dared say that the game felt better on a controller. Only one thing that it is still causing me massive skepticism is how on earth does the game handle skills that utilize "recticule-esque" targeting such as acid cloud, blizzard, leap, etc, etc ...

One thing that caused massive concern is the fact that the PS3 version of the game will feature old school loot rules where everyone shares loot. Makes sense for couch co-op. but I would like further clarification on whether or not shared loot is apart of the PSN online component.

very good thought about skills like acid cloud...i also am curious about the interface and how well it will work...for instance if you want to change skills does everyone have to pause and ur designated one corner of the screen for ur health skills mana ect, seems aesthetically pleasing but not sure how user friendly it will be...as for me im thinking of getting a ps4 and possible holding some couch d3 game nights! theoretically the couch game nights sound really fun

Anyone pick this up? I'm waiting for the ps4 version if any. Love to hear how the interface is.
