At the PS4 reveal, Blizzard talked about how they would be bringing one of their top selling games to consoles: Diablo III. It was announced that day for only the PS3 and PS4 but today was confirmed to be releasing on the Xbox 360 on September 3rd.
Blizzard also announced that a pre-order bonus with the exclusive infernal helm. It is an in-game item that works for any class of character, and offer an in-game XP bonus. It is also assumed (and let me stress this is pure speculation and assumption) that Diablo III will be a launch title for both the Xbox One and the PS4.
This reporter’s take: Seeing all the negativity around Diablo around it’s initial release makes me quite hesitant about going into Diablo on launch day for consoles. I believe the console version (at least current gen) will not require you to be online at all times, so that may alleviate most of my concerns. Truth be told though, I have to get through Torchlight before I jump into Diablo.
