    Diablo was released for the Sony Playstation and controlled well. Torchlight is coming out on XBOX Live. it's already been reviewed and controls well.

    I don't think it would be an issue.

    This. Consoles always were capable of good controls when it came to hack and slash RPG dungeon crawlers. Eg, Champions of Norath, Dungeons and Dragons and Baldur's Gate series.

    Blizzard makes their games work with a wide range of PC's, so getting D3 on a console will not be a problem. I'm not too worried about it.

    I am, however, worried about Diablo 4 MW2.

    It'll be done when it's done. It will work on almost any system. It will also be poorly optimized for modern computers, so your top of the line rigs will be total overkill.
    Not sure if I'm gonna buy this game. I'm starting to lose faith in Blizz since the Activision aquisition.

    Blizz didnt do anything special all the time they were by themselves anyways. This has nothing to do with Activision.

    I just want the game released so we can call it a complete bust or the best game ever made. I am just tired of waiting!

    It's going to be a complete bust unless you wait, so if you want the best game ever made, get patient.

    What do you feel about all those criticism around it regarding some childish graphics and also health orbs?

    Personally I cannot wait for it, I hope will have LAN too, not like St2...

    last I heard after the childish graphics came out the lead designer "stepped down" so I think they are remaking the look a little.

    Health orbs? pic?

    It's a random drop from monster that will replenish your HP.

    Blizzard thinks that we shouldn't be able to spam HP potions.

    Lord of the Ring does look really colorful at some point, but that didn't ruin the movie's atmosphere. The same thing can be said to D3.

    I have no problems with the colors.

    Well I do, especially when you could see rainbows or other fluffy renderings in dungeons or other obscure places, hehe!

    I played Diablo 1 on PS1, and loved it. Infact, I ctually didn't like it on PC, the UI on PS was way better, and I didn't have to deal with annoying people online, me and my cousin just played 2 player and it rocked.

    15 buttons binded for what? That game is seriously like 2 - 3 good spells at max for most classes.

    I do, I wasn't a huge fan of D2 because it was too colorful, too open. D1 was better, was more intimidating, there is not a single memory in D2 that can compare with the first time I met The Butcher or even King Leoric, or Lazarus, and the butcher and king wereo n levels 2 and 3, just started off so epic, so scarey, so dark. D2 you ventured through colorful areas, cast colorful spells, just lacked the atmosphere. Epic Warrior there to slay Demons or not, you should still be shitting your Waistband of the Stars.

    If you thought the D2 spells were colorful, just wait and see the ones from D3. You will need a 10bit monitor in order to admire them at full, haha! :D

    Oh I know, to be honest, looking at D3 stuff scares me, especially since D2 did so well. Everyone has forgotten about D1, or they never played it. It was dark, scary, and full of atmosphere that D2 lacked. And to date its the 14th highest rated PC game of all time on Metacritic.

    Agreed here, I found pressing X/Square/Triangle/Circle as one of the spells or melee attacks much more satisfying than pointing with a mouse and clicking, I may even consider playing D3 with my 360 controller depending on how they implement combat :).

    it feels more natural to control a character with analog sticks. I don't like pointing and clicking either.

    There are numerous screenshots years ago of the "original" Diablo III, mostly of Heaven.

    No just the horrible abomination that is Cataclysm. The name of the last expansion really explains what they did to the game. (and im not talking about how it transformed the world)

    You mentioned that there wasnt a WoW expansion being released. While that is true yes, Blizzard is hard at work fixing or further destroying WoW by "fixing" what doesnt need to be fixed in WoW in turn breaking it further and making more people complain about it. Thus, I wouldnt expect Diablo 3 to be released this year.

    WoW was so much better before they made it really easy in cataclysm
