Diablo III - Console Sizzle Reel
Check out some new gameplay footage from the console version of Diablo III.
It's no surprise that D3 will run on a console. It was designed within the limitations of a console to begin with. There is no depth or complexity. It's several steps backward from D2LoD in those respects.
Since you can't transfer your characters from the PC version, I see no reason to buy it.
Gotta admit, this looks very, very good on the PS3! Blizzard must know how to squeeze power out of the cell processor. I'm definitely buying it (or the PS4 version). Offline play FTW!
Sizzle Reel isn't exactly the right way of putting it. Diablo III might actually be better for consoles, but that's not really a hard feat to accomplish given its current state on PC.
@Zirkonia U see no reason or u cant afford one? Pfft
I have a $12,000 PC rig with 3 x 30" computer monitors (not cheap, low-resolution HDTVs,) so I could easily afford all of the consoles. I've spent more on a single software program than it would cost to own all of the consoles plus a bunch of games. I see no reason to own them.
I don't like the lack of depth, long-term planning, and strategy in console games. They're geared for folks with short attention spans and no desire to challenge their minds. In a nutshell, consoles are for twitch gamers. The focus is on short-term tactical responses rather than long-term strategic play. I much prefer old-school PC games. They were for thinking people.
This latest trend to limit PC games to the capabilities of consoles is ruining PC gaming for those of us who've played complex computer games for decades. That's why I preferred D2LoD over D3. I played through the entire length of both, in all difficulty modes, with multiple characters and gave up on D3. There is no real crafting in the game. There is no ability to truly customize your gear, so there is no long-term planning involved. It's a twitch game, plain and simple. The rewards are minimal. Even the missions are short and not very challenging. There is no "epic" feel to D3, like there was with D2LoD.
D3 is a fail for old-school PC gamers.
@ChiefFreeman You must be a 12 year old, or an adult moron. You only need a useful Master's degree in order to make plenty of money to afford custom high end equipment. Plus, not everyone on Gamespot sits on their parents' couch eating Cheetos and playing XBox all day. In cases like mine, I work with CAD, edit HD video, and work on photographs from high end camera equipment. I also work at home, so I use the same equipment for gaming in my spare time. High end equipment pays for itself pretty quickly for well educated grownups with jobs that rely on computing horsepower. You have a pretty limited view of the real world. Perhaps you should think before spouting off and showing your ignorance. My advice to you is to get a good education.
