Moving away from Ubisoft and their PS4 titles Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, the latest Conversation with Creators video talks to members of the Diablo III development team, discussing topics such as the DualShock 4, Share button, the PS4′s power, and more:

Here’s a few choice quotes from the video featuring John Hight, Production Director, Joshua Mosqueira, Lead Designer, and Jason Bender, Senior Designer:

“The thing that’s exciting for [the PS4] is the controller.”

“Control is king.”

“When you flick the right stick [on the DualShock] your character actually performs a dodge move that is unique to the console.”

“We think the touch pad’s gonna give us a lot more opportunity to make that [Diablo] interface a lot easier.”

“What we didn’t want to do is simplify the experience.”

“You can just press up on the d-pad and quickly cycle through the items you’ve recently picked up.”

Diablo III on PS3 is expected later this year, with a pre-order bonus of the Infernal Helm offered right now, while on PS4, there’s currently no release window.
