So it's hardly surprising to hear the World Of Warcraft company tell an audience at its GamesCom press conference that it "is very, very serious about bringing the Diablo 3 experience to the console".

In fact, Blizzard is so serious that it's currently assembling a team to handle the proposed port.

"Today, we're trying to build the best console team at Blizzard. We're looking for programmers, designers, artists who think their dream job would be to bring Diablo to the console. Trust me, it is a dream job.

"All I can say is it's going to be awesome. Stay tuned."

We'd take that as a confirmation if we were you.
