Blizzard Has a Version of Diablo 3 Running On Consoles 147

Posted by Soulskill

skade88 points out comments from Blizzard exec Rob Pardo, who says the company has internal builds of Diablo 3 running on consoles. It's been known for months that Blizzard has been working on something like this, but now we have the first indication of how far along the project is. Pardo said, "We're still kind of exploring it. We've got builds up and running on it. We're hoping to get it far enough along where we can make it an official project, but we're not quite ready to release stuff about it. But it's looking pretty cool." According to lead designer Jay Wilson, we'll start seeing information on "the next big Diablo thing" next year, which probably refers to an expansion.

    The game is lacking core functionality that it was suppose to have at launch, or shortly thereafter, such as PvP. They are working on porting this to consoles instead of adding features they promised players? I guess they are trying to milk this cow dry before it dies. It is really a shame, Diablo II was one of my favorite games of all time. Diablo 3 is embarrassing.

    It's not diablo 3.
    It's Isometric world of farmcraft and it really shows the generic cash addicted shit producers that blizzard have become.

    Play path of exile if you want a continuation of the awsome that was diablo 2.

    Don't be an idiot. The people porting it to console likely don't even possess the same skillset as the people working on PvP (one is low level hardware programming and optimization and control design, the other is level design, game design, and scripting). Also, PvP in Diablo games was always tacked on and terrible. At best it just enabled griefing for 14-year-old assholes.

    It's not "awesome" until I can play it offline.

    I'm not sure why everyone believes diablo 3 must be a carbon copy of diablo 2. If you want to play diablo 2, play diablo 2. But the bitching about how bad diablo 3 is is getting really, really old.

    We wanted continuation of the Diablo series, instead we got World of Warcraft shoe-horned into the Diablo franchise.

    ...the bitching about how bad diablo 3 is is getting really, really old.

    Not anymore than the Blizzard Entertainment scrotum slurping apologists like yourself.

There is hardly a thing in the world that some man can not make a little worse and sell a little cheaper.

Working...
