According to Mike Morhaime – Blizzard CEO, the possibility of Diablo 3 getting released on consoles, is quite prominent. Morhaime is still contemplating the Pros and Cons of releasing this classic PC title on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. If he does go ahead with the multi-platform release, some people will think that the company desecrated the whole charm, while console fans will be happier than ever.
As a platform, PC has more flexibility and improved graphics to offer. There’s always room for mods and trainers, so you can take the Diablo 3 experience to an entirely new level. Blizzard CEO thinks that releasing Diablo 3 on the consoles will harbor a couple of issues.
The first issue is the release of bug fixes and patches. Even though the Xbox and PS3 can upgrade to a newer patch version, what do you think about expansion packs? The developers will have to release separate discs for 360 and PS3 fans, which is not very cool. Plus, expansions don’t come aloof of bugs. So, Blizzard will have to release patches for console lovers as well.
All in all, it’s going to become more hectic for the game developers to manage all three platforms at the same time. The company’s CEO said, (Quoted) “I think you could make an argument that a game like Diablo might play very well on a console. It’s something that we’re actually doing an investigation into, to see if that could make sense.”
Anyways, for old fun sake, watch Diablo 3’s trailer below and leave the comments in the crotch bar.
