The lights are on
Diablo III releases on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 today, finally giving console gamers a taste of Blizzard's dungeon-crawling masterpiece. Join the GI crew as they take the new couch co-op mode for a spin and discuss the changes Blizzard has implemented for controller-friendly adventuring.
Andrew Reiner and Jason Oestreicher watch on as PC editor Adam Biessener and I smash our way through Diablo III's first dungeon. I take on the role of a spider jaw-spewing witch doctor, while Adam channels his inner female barbarian. It doesn't take long for Adam to start peddling his PC propaganda, but at the end of the day, we overcome our platform preferences to slay a bunch nasty-looking corpses and skeletons. Now that's team work!
Diablo III is now available on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. For more on the game, read our review.

looks pretty good on console :P though i might have to get the right "diablo nostalgia" feel on pc first :P
These Test Chambers are awesome when you guys are having fun!
This looks hella awesome.
Wish i could of saw some 4 player action, but regardless of this, they've done a great job.
More Developers should take note that 4 player Local Co-op is necessary in their games.
It really doesn't look that bad. I may have to check this out when its cheaper someday.
Just got this today, and man..it is GOOD, starting with a female wizard and so far i am loving it.
Entered GI's contest for Diablo III's console version, so guess we'll see if I'm actually playing this before long, lol. In any case, if I did have an extra $50 and 100 hrs.+, maybe I'd give MMOs like this a shot.
Wonderful Test Chamber! I'm glad the console version turned out spectacular.
How is everyone liking the game so far? I played a bit of Diablo 2 and now have Diablo 3 for the PS3. I think its awesome that they ported this to the consoles.
If anyone is looking for another player in their group shoot me a message, don't have a lot of friends into this series.
Yep, I'm surely picking this title up! Thanks for the look on Test Chamber. Keep up the great work dudes!
I'll be picking this up. The couch co op has me sold.
I not invested in this game like my friends are.
