Similar pricing to what's done in the other MOBA games. I can work with that. Thanks for not being douchy about the prices Blizzard. Seriously, thanks. =D

Mobile version of Hearthstone? This sounds awesome.

No Xbox One version of Diablo 3? Well Blizzard looks like your fanboy is showing. How unprofessional and on top of that you released an Xbox 360 version of Diablo 3. So what the hell was the point of that if Diablo doesn't have a future with the Xbox brand as a whole? Obviously you had discussed things with Microsoft if their was a 360 version so you cant say they didn't talk to you about it. You have no excuse except laziness and blind loyalty to a company that is about to go bankrupt.

By the time they release Diablo 3 for PS4 I'm not going to care anymore. I was looking forward to it last year, but it's taking them forever.

Blizzard is the lamest, lowest, most irritating, stealing, milking, failing, short sighted, uncreative, company ever.

As a PS4 owner I must say, thanks but no thanks.

Speaking of hack and slash.  Come on Sony do another damn Champions of Norrath game.  Passed the PS3.  Don't do the same for the PS4.   Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance 3 wouldn't be bad either.  :)

Have on all systems and will be getting it on all that the expansion is released for.  Love me some hack and slash and looting rpg's.

I remember back when it would have been impossible for say a ps2 to run a ps3 game. Now we got multiplats like titan fall, diablo 3, cod, bf, thief and so many other games being released on the pc and both first and last gen consoles. This is a testament to how great the last gen was and how far game development has come.

It will be great to play heart stone on mobile. The mofos just need to hurry ap and release it now. Most tcg on mobile suck ballz. Blizzard can easily decimate the clowny devs on the google play app store.

Diablo III on PS4? Oh boy, I think the greatness will have to wait a little more.

Played D3 on pc and PS3.  It is so much better on console I am giving the pc version  a skip until the PS4 version comes out.

Two things


Will we who switched consoles be able to buy experience so we can level up chars quicker least one time?


Why not bring WoW to console? PS4 has keyboard and mouse ability.

huh, when I first read the title I though Warlords of Draenor was coming to mobile. I thought that game had taken a drastic step in the wrong direction even for Blizzard...

All I want to know is when Diablo 3 comes out for PS4. Come on.

Hopefully you can transfer your D3 characters over from the PS3 to the PS4.

I already played DIablo 3 on the PC, but I want the PS4 version for some fun couch co-op.  Hope it comes out soon.

Mobile Hearthstone and still no word on mobile WoW Pet Battles!?!

For shame - this was announced years ago to be in development.

I just went back after AH went down and loot 2.0 is like a godsend it hasn't even been 3 hours I played and I already have a legendary weapon and shield for my monk the Weapon has frickin 1.2k dips.


Bummer the bot I used before dropping the game sold all my gear with tons of gems in them when I forgot to stash them away.

Dude, the only fanboy that is showing is you... Get this through your head brother, BIG businesses are not fanboys. If it doesn't come out on the xboxone ( which I'm sure it will) it is because they struck a deal that was better for thier bottom line at this point and time. When that kind of money changes hands they don't base it on a 14 year old mentality of die hard console loyalty based on fanboyism ... It's nothing but $$$$ ... So if it's not on XB1 this time, blame MS for not shelling out the cabbage coupons.

@BiotasticmeatReally? what a chain of misinformed nonsense.
Capcon also did that by releasing a PS3 version of Dead rising 2 but 3 is XO exclusive. Are they fanboys too?
How about EA with Titanfall?
How about NIS?

Talk about "blind loyalty" now what? Just play the game on PC. It's going to be more confortable to play on it anyway.

@Biotasticmeat  Maybe it just needs more development time so we don't end up with 720p and less than 60fps so that people complain about that too?

halo44327

@Biotasticmeat  Cool your jets brah. First off, Xbox 360 is awesome but I own a PS4. Its probably a contract that has a limited time. So exclusive for a limited time but I doubt it would be JUST PS4. Who knows. Don't say they are "fanboys" just cause they choose one system over another. I mean you guys get good games too like Titanfall and other good Xbox games that won't show in PS4.

@hus1979 It's most likely not Blizzard but the recent embargo laws enforced by the Us government. Just pointing that out.
Sorry for your situation nonetheless, it's unfair indeed.

@nomailx  Uncreative and Heroes of the Storm go so well with each other i just can't find the words for this amazing mix.

@zyxahn  If they make a new Champions of Norrath for PS4 I'll definitely pick one up.

@Gomtor  I love that the console version isn't online because the lag on the pc version is really irritating.  That being said, the game looks a lot better on my pc than it does on the PS3.

@Thanatos2k  I also remember when the stories they put into their games were top notch. Still remember quotes from war3 and scbw to this day.

@Dezuria Same I played on PS3 as well. Couch co-op is great for Diablo. PC version is much better now as well, And I will for sure get the PS4 version when it comes out.

They finally fixed it some of the big issues.  Like the AH and loot drops.
