Diablo 3 listed for Xbox One by retailers

Blizzard doesn't deny the possibility of Diablo 3 coming to Xbox One.

Diablo 3 could be coming to Xbox One, if a retailer listing is any indication.

Eurogamer noticed that UK retailer Argos is taking preorders for an Xbox One version of Blizzard's isometric, loot-spewing RPG. The shops says the game will be released in 2014, too.

An Xbox One version of Diablo 3 also popped up on Best Buy Canada, but has since been removed.

What does Blizzard have to say about this? "One of our goals is to bring Diablo 3 to as many players as possible," a company spokesperson said in a statement, "but we don't have any other platform announcements to share at this time."

Diablo 3 is heading to the PlayStation 4 sometime after the game's first expansion, Reaper of Souls, lands on PC in March. Alongside PC and Mac, the game is already out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Anyone who buys this shit game again needs to be tarred and feathered.

Why wouldn't you release your bad game on another platform? People bought it on 360 and PS3 after playing it already, you may as well maximize on their stupidity.

This seems perfect for the Xbox One, snap the Netflix app to the side while you mindlessly grind for loot.

Blizzard maybe didnt believed the X1 could be successfull so they never officially announced it for it earlier.
It makes sense now that here and there infos get leaked.

Cool I already have it on PC but if they bring out the new expansion along with this I might buy it again just so I can play it offline for a change. Starting to piss me off that. And the drop in latency you get right at the start where it is so bad it generally ends up 9/10 me being killed in the first enemy encounter just because of online DRM crap.

It is really sad that they will probably make enough money to justify the development costs.

Good game, but with all the great games coming out in 2014, I'm gonna save my money for a new game, rather than a game that already came out for last gen

Finally played this and I don't understand why it is so revered. Baldur's gate was better in my opinion.

Now if MS still had the DRM/24 hour online check, Diablo 3 would be useless on Xbox One.

But anyway, Xbox Fans will look over this.

Well I think xbox1 should get it but to them they don't know.  

This might become like Wii U axe games .

It will be the same as PS4's Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition

@MW2ismygameObviously YOU care, otherwise, why would you post a message under a story about it? Do you just blunder around, whining about things you don't like? Why not find something you do like, so your life isn't so miserable? Have a nice day!

@meza-ace Love Diablo 3, have tons of hours in it on PC.  I will also get it on PS4.  Path of Exile is good too but I couldn't get into it.

@snacky_smorez  And pecan pies are much better than chicken parmesan in my opinion.  :)


These two games are totally different to play.  One is a turn based RPG with an emphasis on story and strategy, the other is a real time combat and loot hunting dungeon crawler. The only similarity is that they're both set in a D&D inspired fantasy world.

@snacky_smorez Its not this game thats so revered, its the previous games in the franchise. I was unfortunate enough not to play either of the previous two, but I still enjoy playing the third as a mindless time waster. This is good news for me as I have a 50 mage waiting from renting it on the 360. Hope this comes true as I would definitely buy it down the road on sale XD

@EasyComeEasyGo Uh even though D3 came out with always online DRM and was only changed for console.

@EasyComeEasyGoWhat? You are criticizing Diablo III on XBox for a feature that never came out on the SYSTEM (nothing for or against this game). And on top of that, the original Diablo III experience on PC is always online.

I don't even understand what the hell you are trying to dig at.

@GH05T-666 I think they should realse them at the same time as well xbox1

@DrDobalina @MW2ismygame so because i have an opinion that is different than yours my life is miserable ? i can apply what you said in your second sentience right back at your own comment. Nice try tho

@kargion @Daian And by many you mean 8 people. Compared to the millions who bought it and were completely disappointed.

@Cronyk@snacky_smorezYou are right about the time waster. I just can't put my finger on it but the game felt empty. Also did not like the menu systems. I may try to play the previous games if they are far and away better.

kargion

@pszone @GH05T-666 They will, PC will get released first though it looks like.  I hope its all versions same day.

@MW2ismygame@DrDobalinaSince you obviously missed the point, I'll try to simplify it for you: People who post in threads under news articles, specifically to whine about a game being "overpriced", "rubbish", "waste of time" etc, are generally miserable people who want to try to make everyone around them as miserable as they are. Why else would you post that? Then you state you don't care - when it's obvious you do, otherwise you wouldn't continue to waste your time posting about a game you don't like. Yet here you are, still whining.


Go and do something more productive than whining to people here.

@xantufrog @Cronyk @snacky_smorez Well like I said, I never played the previous two so I'm sure youre right. I get where your coming from though as D3 definitely felt a bit soulless.

@Cronyk @snacky_smorez Diablo 2 came out like 16 years ago and is still exponentially better when compared side by side to D3. Make sure to get friends and play on lan.

@Cronyk@snacky_smorezDiablo II remains way better than DIII in my opinion. Of course the graphics are more dated, and parts of the interface are less fluid. But the game has more gravity, more soul, and a better skill system for replayability sake. Just gave the original Torchlight a try the other day, and although I can't say much in favor of the visual design direction, the gameplay is much closer to the old Diablo games I grew up loving

@snacky_smorez @Cronyk Well thats the thing, they were far and away better for their time... I think Diablo II came out like 10-12 years ago now. Although I had some friends that got into that game a couple years ago and still had a good time. If you weren't crazy about Diablo 3, I would look at Path of Exile or Torchlight 2. If your not really into those games either maybe your just not a dungeon crawler fan... lol

@snacky_smorez @curiousarman These people, they know whats up. Baldurs Gate 1 and 2, Icewind Dale 1 and 2, Diablo 1 and 2, Torchlight 1 and 2, even path of exile are all exponentially better than D3. Shit game.
