will diablo 3 go to consoles?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - will diablo 3 go to consoles?

Do not over-estimate the control Activision has over Blizzard. Remember that at the end of the day it was Activision that got bought by Vivendi. Blizzard has always been very autonomous in the past, and will continue to be so in the future. When you put out gigantic blockbusters like WoW every few years and earn your owners a few billion dollars then you get a lot of say in how you are managed. It will all depend on what Blizzard wants to do with the game. If there is a port, it will be done by someone else and probably not be very good.

no chance in hell. firstly, Blizzard is making this, not Activision. secondly, it would take a lot of reworking as not only is this a point and click, there is a hot bar for your skills instead of choose one for each mouse button so it is going to be a lot faster paced. also, PC games have always had the advantage of you don't need cutting edge graphics to sell well. that isn't the case on consoles.



I think it should go to the wii..

It is a point and click games, and it does have wii quality graphics or less, so its possible, it all depends on its sales on the PC platform.

No it wont. Blizzard will keep it pc/mac exclusive.



^but maybe activision will release it for consoles

They need to port Diablo (the original game) to the DS =D

But actually on topic, I think they'll do a Valve. Blizzard won't want to port it but Activision will, as such a third tier Activision team will do the port. The PC version will be the superior version.



YES, because my sig says so, exclusively...

70% --- No way, it will remain on PC
15% --- A mainstream aimed product should be on a mainstream system (Wii) with nice controls.
15% --- PS3/Xbox360 with the keyboard and mouse peipherals

 

let's think about this for a second here...... as a fan of Diablo 2. do you want to play Diablo 3 on 480P resolution?

and how do you have "nice control" with a game like Diablo series?

 

Of course.. I forgot how games are all about graphics these days..

1080p & 60fps FTW!!

Your game does not put out a constant 60 fps??  It is garbage!!

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

It's a 50/50 shot if you ask me. Blizzard has put Diablo on a console before, and now with pressure from Activision (pretty big money whore), it wouldn't surprise me one bit. I really don't think it would compromise the game too much since it doesn't look like it will need ridiculously high specs.

Blizzard never ported a to consoles. The porting was always outsourced.

One of Vivendi's concerns was to keep Blizzard through independent management after the merge, and Activision assured Blizzard would continue to function the same as always.

Activision's main reason for the merge with Vivendi was to stregthen their PC support, since Vivendi possessed 2 of the most recognized names of the PC gaming industry: Blizzard and Sierra. Actually, Activision also stated that the only thing they want from Blizzard is to release atleast 1 Big Title every year.

It was Vivendi that bought part of Activision, and holds the majority ownership of Activision Blizzard. Vivendi is 10 times bigger than Activision, and owns several TV Channels, part of NBC, part of Universal Studios, part of Universal Music Group, etc...

I have no doubt that Blizzard will keep doing things like they've always done.



Yea I agree with the saying that if Blizzard wont do it Activisioin will.
It should go to the Wii, though scary how theyd do online.
Anyways I think its nicely suited for the Wii and of course its not gonna be the same experciece as on PC since its a console but they can alter it or whatever so it can be a nice fit for a console.
I want it on Wii or PS3 though since I'll own both soon...
