Diablo 3 Running on Consoles, Looking “Cool” at Blizzard

December 12, 2012Written by Jesse Meikle

Blizzard has been openly teasing console owners for a while now about the possibility of Diablo III making the gamepad optimized leap to our living room. Blizzard executive Rob Pardo revealed to Polygon that the project isn’t even “official” yet, despite actual working prototypes running Diablo III on consoles:

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.

Of course, “official project” is slightly subjective. It could mean Blizzard hasn’t decided whether they truly want to do a PS3/Xbox 360 version,  it could mean they’re not ready to officially reveal their progress publicly – or “official project” could qualify as anything in-between.

Would you be interested in a PS3 version of Diablo III? Or has the online auction house, and end-game criticisms scared you away from the initially praised fastest selling PC game of all time?
