Can someone answer me where the PS4 exclusive enemies and armor are?  I just finished the game and I did not see one clicker, bloater, or the Shadow of Colossus armor.

I've been playing D3 on ps4 for the past few days. Blizzard did a fantastic job on it...and in my opinion this is superior to the PC, if only for control preference (some games simply play better on a controller or a mouse.


However, one gripe. Diablo on the PS Vita via Remote Play is simply broken. It is laggy and borderline unplayable with other people online (note, network settings may play a factor either way). It is vastly inferior in network performance compared to pretty much any other game I've played using Remote Play. Also, a patch "must" come out to allow remapping controls for the Vita.


Call my gripe whining but I expect Sony/Blizzard to deliver on Remote Play. For many Sony users (Vita owners), Remote Play adds lots of value compared to its competition. Sony and Blizzard need to work together to get this hashed out, which I think in time will be done.


Gripe aside, D3 on PS4 is the definitive version in my opinion (and even more so once Remote Play is fixed).

Please listen. Whenever my friends and I want to sit down and play Diablo on the console we play it for a little bit then get instantly bored. Why? Because when your all playing on the console at the same time only one person is able to have their menu open at a time. This creates problems for everyone. This makes you have to wait turns to open your menu and this makes it boring! They need to make it so that when one person opens a menu...another can also at the same time open theirs. If anyone has played Baulders Gate back on the PS2 with a friend they know exactly what im talking about. PLEASE BLIZZ FIX THIS PROBLEM.

I hope they will consider updating the stat presentation in the console version, i play the pc and console version and it is much more helpful the way the pc displays stats because it show your toughness which factors in your armor rating and vitality with your resistances showing you the total damage you can take before you die, while the console version show your armor rating separate, making it hard to pick between certain pieces of gear that raise/ lower armor in exchange for vitality

All people care about is if your patching post launch and keeping it up to date like the PC, but you couldn't answer that so the rest of the video was stupid.

Should have made this game cross playable pc to any console Blizzard. Why would I buy this when i've made progress on pc version with paragon levels.


I have no point to play / buy this on PS4

Listening to it I love how they say there won't be cross gen play when we KNOW for a fact it's possible thanks to FFARR which is across THREE separate platforms (Ps4,PS3, and Vita) not to mention they all can play with PC players.

Way to go Blizzard. Funny how a little game like FFARR is so far ahead of a lot of competitors on some things.

@tommynj Not really, it plays pretty smooth on my PC. With better spell effects, btw.

The only advantage on consoles - and the reason I'll buy it again for PS4 - is the 4 playes local coop. It's old fashioned fun, and I miss this kind of game.

@hulkww  Yeah knew a guy named Adolf who thought the same. Seem your heading towards the same answer he had in the end as well.

@ethancoble  well if they would allow an app to integrate with your phone to console so you can change gear on that screen or even a tablet would help.

@msauce32 yeah, but on pc just the expansion is 40 bucks, and you can get the whole game plus the expanison for 40 on last gen, and if you're buying next gen you'd have to buy the whole thing anyway, if it was 60 for last gen id complain

@msauce32  Because they are part of Activision. The shittiest game company in history.

@Kinguard73 This is true. i never completely understood it but if they did there would be complete console parity and that's something i don't want. also, i'm sure activision thinks they would lose money because they make games for all consoles not just one or two.
