Josh Mosqueira, a Diablo 3 konzolra fejlesztésének egyik tagja nyilatkozott a PS3-s Diablo 3-mal kapcsolatban:
- Nem lesz RMAH a konzolos Diablo 3-ban, mert problematikus lenne a kivitelezése.
- A Diablo 3 nem csupán Sony konzolokon fog megjelenni, a későbbiekben elképzelhető, hogy Xbox-n is játszhatjuk majd.
- Ismételten megerősítették, hogy a Diablo 3 konzolos verziója offline is játszható lesz.
“It’s so much fun,” Joshua Mosqueira, the game’s lead designer, said when I asked how the couch co-op played. “On a big couch, with four of your friends, drinking beers, it’s almost like a party atmosphere. There’s this really awesome social moment with a legendary drop, and everyone is cheering. It feels very collaborative.”
There was some question about the offline play of the game, something that’s impossible in the PC version of Diablo 3. It was confirmed to me that the game will be playable offline on the PlayStation 3.
Which leads to some other changes, namely the removal of the real money auction house. “The ecosystems on the PC and console are very different,” Mosqueira explained. “There were some technical reasons we had to go with offline, but again once you have an offline experience, even if we wanted to bring in the auction house, it just becomes problematic. How do you validate? How do you make sure there is no duping or any of that stuff?”
