And the PS3
During Sony's PlayStation Meeting, Blizzard Entertainment's Chris Metzen announced that the company has entered into a "strategic partnership" with Sony to bring Diablo III to the PS3 and its successor system, the PS4. The game will be a port of the PC version which was released last May, and, as stated in the press release, will include "all of the latest upgrades, such as the Paragon levelling system, customizable Monster Power, Brawling, and more".
The user interface will be adapted in order to suit the new system and DualShock 4 controller, providing a new dynamic way of playing and viewing the game. Metzen also revealed that four-player co-op will be possible, both online and in a local co-op mode.
While no further details were announced, Metzen concluded that more information, as well as a playable demo of the PS3 version, will be available at PAX East at the end of March.
Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment, added in the press release:
Diablo III looks and plays great on the PlayStation. We put a lot of care and thought into the PlayStation version to make sure it would deliver an authentic Diablo gaming experience, and we're really pleased with the results. We can't wait for players to try it out at PAX East.
