How Diablo 3 could be better on Xbox 360 than PC

Hands-on time reveals a storm of worthwhile tweaking

A fair few people started up Diablo 3 on their PCs last year, looked at the reduced length of the hotbar, and thought: "That's it, then. They've dumbed it down. It must be coming out on consoles. This is the beginning of the end. I'm going to vlog furiously about this, the second I've played it for 90 hours." Of course, no-one admitted anything to this effect at Blizzard. But I've been itching to see how Diablo would function on a gamepad since then, and I'm chuffed to report (after a limited but enlightening session) that it works just fine. Different, yes. But perfectly fine.... read more

Doesn't the PC version have the online DRM? :wink:

Really enjoyed Diablo 2, even if it was a hassle to get it working at the time, so hopefully this doesn't end up being too bad. When's the date by the by and is it only on current-gen Xbox? I'd like to get it, but if it's too close to next-gen I might not bother.

Glad to have another game that looks fun to sit down and play with a buddy.

Thanks Ed. Killer is Dead is quite close to that date though, don't know if I should pre-order or wait for a week or two, then again I don't want to be playing catch-up so close to next-gen.

You should just kick him off it, I would. :wink:

Will we be able to sell loot for real world money like you can on the PC version?

No we won,t and from what i have been reading this was a good decision.I no rare loot drops will be a lot more common as the article stated.

I am now 5 hours in on the pc version and i am fully addicted,the weight of the strikes are awesome,the graphics are really good for a dungeon crawler.I have heard that the console version will be taking a bit of a hit in the graphics department,if you could shed a bit of light on that for us.I hope that it will work on console as i would love to play this game with my friends. I am surprised at how much i like this game and if it ports well,i will buy it.I can tell you the box that the game comes in with the pc version looks stunning as does the starcraft box,why they don;t take as much care with more games on console is beyond me.

I am on third run on pc version with barbarian,level 43 and it's a good game.I don't no whether the console version can match the graphics and complexity of the game.Ive read some bad things about auction house but its a great way to get rid of unwanted rare items.This causes legendary items to be rare and on my third run,i have not seen even one.I hope they keep the amount of things you can do in this game,as this is what makes it good.If the reviews are positive i will get it as playing with different classes makes for a different game I hope the xbox masses play this game as it should be played rather than messing about.I say this as on pc people stick together and make the harder difficulty levels a touch more playable,as some of the bosses on nightmare deliver one hit kills readily.I look forward to the review,is there a date on this and are you playing now.
