This is What Diablo III Looks Like on a PlayStation Console

Diablo3_PlayStation_1

Blizzard made headlines during PlayStation Meeting 2013 by announcing that development is underway on Diablo III for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. PC snobs are apparently all up in arms over the news — the forum whining and conspiracy theories I’ve read about today are downright absurd — but I think most of us can agree that this is nothing but great news. Not everyone has the latest and greatest PC gaming hardware, and hack-and-slash action-RPGs are always a nice fit on consoles. (In case any one forgot, the original Diablo is a PlayStation game.)

The PlayStation console versions of Diablo III will encompass the complete core game content as found on PC along with all updated content that has been added since the original release. Multiplayer options will consist of four players online with matchmaking and up to four players offline in local single-screen couch co-op modes. Blizzard is also revamping the controls, interface, and camera system to optimize the user experience for DualShock play.

Diablo III will be making its playable PlayStation 3 debut at PAX East in late March. In the meantime, the three screenshots on this page offer the first glimpse at what the game looks like running on a PlayStation console.
