Wilson mentioned that the main reason behind the idea in making the game for consoles is the controls. Even though he stated that the movement in the game feels better on a controller, he felt that the game needed to be developed from the ground up instead of a simple port from the PC version. Porting the game would not make it feel “right” on consoles.
Diablo III is scheduled to release in early 2012, and will do so as a free bonus to those who purchase an Annual Pass in MMORPG World of Warcraft. If Blizzard announces a PS3 version of the game, do you prefer play using mouse and keyboard or a controller? To me, it’s the PS3, so I’d love to use my DualShock 3.
