During the PlayStation meeting, we were told that there was a good chance we’ll be playing the recently announced PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 version of Diablo III at PAX East in Boston from March 22nd – 24th. Blizzard has since clarified this by saying that we will see Diablo III at PAX East, but it is only going to be playable on PlayStation 3.
