The lights are on
Blizzard has announced that it's bringing Diablo III to the Xbox 360, in addition to the previously announced PS3 and PS4 versions. In addition, the company has provided a specific release date for the current-gen console versions.
Diablo III will be arriving on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 3.
Players who preorder the game from participating retailers can get an exclusive in-game item, the Infernal Helm. It provides an experience bonus to characters who wear it, allowing players to level up faster.
Take a look at this developer video to see what the team has in mind for the PS4 version of the game. Read our glowing review of the PC version here.

I actually really am not surprised about this. But I'm glad this game is reaching out to consoles.
been playing it since it's rocky launch, but nonetheless blizzard always comes through in the clutch. Can't wait for the first quality co-op hack and slash rpg on the Xbox 360. too bad it's the end of the cycle. Have the Collector's Edition and Standard for PC. Can't wait to see a console collector's edition.
I like how they made it seem as if it was going to only be for Playstation but then announce it for Xbox for the same release date. They should've just came out and said it would be on both consoles instead of trying to play in to the Playstation corner
Sweet! I was hoping this was gonna happen. I loved Diablo 2 and don't have a PS3 or a PC good enough to run Diablo 3.
Glad this is coming to Xbox. I've wanted to play it since it came out, but I can't really afford a decent gaming PC.
So it's coming here as well? Not just to PS3? Nice.
I already have it for PC, but I'm tempted to get it for my console just so I don't have to deal with the DRM and cash shop...I mean real money auction house.
hmmm.. To wait tell PS4 to get this or to get it on PS3...
Glad they finally brought this to consoles, I've always wanted to play Diablo but never been a PC gamer.
Looking forward to getting this.
But DIABLO 3 was bad...
So what's the current state of Diablo 3? Forget about the DRM and Auction House, because those won't be present on consoles. Has Blizzard done much to improve the game itself, like balancing classes, adding content, squashing bugs, etc. since launch? What made it so bad to begin with (apart from the above complaints), and is it better now?
I'd rather have Torchlight 2, but I'll almost certainly be getting this for 360.
That's cool, but I'm still going with the PS4 vers.
Just made my day
