That's sweet. Love Diablo 3. I have the UEE for the PS4, but Ill get this. What is the Rise Of The Necromancer DLC all about?

They added a new class last year. There was also a few new areas added at the same time but no additional Act like with Reaper of Souls.



Signature goes here!

I got it for $20 on clearance for PS4 literally years ago.

Well, sales on the Switch eShop happen to. Usually not for fresh releases though. So some sale might happen down the line, like it did on PS4, but for comparison the usual price should be used.

Well, I just look at the time and effort it probably took to do the Crash N'Sane Trilogy and compare it to the time and effort to port Diablo 3 to the Switch, and I'd say it was probably took more time and cost more to make the Crash port that sold for $40 on release.

That's my mindset. But, then again this isn't about cost and effort, this is about maximizing profit.



As for myself, I don't know if I'll get it. On the one hand, I love the game (it's SO much better than at launch) but I've also already played it on PC for more something like 700 hours (maybe more).

That's exactly right. Not sure though if Crash really is more demanding than Diablo. Devs report to have more of a problem with cartridge size than anything, so the old textures and models of Crash even remastered took less space. I can find that Crash on PS4 is 30GB install size, Diablo 40GB. This can actually be the bigger effort, to get the size down.

But in any case, it doesn't really matter, as you point out profit is all that matters. Crash being a remaster couldn't be set at the same price as the newer game. Because of customer perception, nothing else. A game cost as much as the publisher thinks he can ask for and get away with it, not how much effort got into creating it.

There's no way they would charge $60 for a 6 year old game like this! Then again, they did that for Skyrim so who knows lol

Good, I guess, but I've never been interested in Diablo, and at that price I doubt it will set the world on fire. Seriously, it's 6 years old, there's no reason to charge full price. The Crash collection has more right to charge full price than this.

Full price:

Diablo 3 -$60
Reaper of Souls Expansion - $40
Rise of the Necromnancer DLC - $15

Total: $115

is this any good? i don't think i have played any diablo games?

I played Diablo I & II for years and years, and never really grew tired of it.

Diablo III I played for like 2-3months and was done with it.
Id say its not a great game, it threw the baby out with the bath water.

They changed so much of what was core to diablo, with the 3rd installment, that it just kinda lost that appeal it had for me.
A much much better diablo like game, is out thats free to play though, called Path of Exile.

If you want to give these types of games a try, you could make a account and try that out, before decideing on diablo III.

At what point in time did you play? If it was within the first year of it's release, it was a very different game at that point. And frankly, it was trash, imo. Blizzard kept updating it a lot over the years, and it finally became a good game when Reaper of Souls was released.

Not as great as Diablo 2 though. I hope they manage to reach those heights with Diablo 4, which is apparently in development.

Officially announced, coming this fall. November probably makes most sense

Well that confirms no new direct until september, but hey, Diablo 3 on Switch that's cool.
I'm just waiting for D4 or a remake of D2 tbh



I think I played D3 once... I don't think it's my type of game. Cool that it's coming to Switch though!



too expensive.

This is a port that's worth the full price on my opinion. It will be the most feature complete with all the expansions and Nintendo content. I'm sure I've seen it on the PS store going for full price.

Joint-most actually. The PS4 version has all the expansions too as well as exclusive TLOU content.

That sounds cool. Either way this is a port done correctly
