There were rumors a while ago about the just-released PC game Diablo 3 coming to Xbox, and there have been mixed opinions on whether or not it’s a good decision. After all, PC games are laid out completely differently when compared to a console game. PCs have a whole keyboard, while we only have a controller. Controls will have to be simplified, and the gameplay will be very different than it’s original format.
Recently, Blizzard has confirmed suspicions by saying that although they are planning an Xbox release, they are going to take a while. They said that they don’t want a straight port onto consoles. They actually want a console version with it’s own unique controls that have been designed specifically for controllers. They’re taking it very seriously, and are saying that they are in no rush to release it alongside it’s PC version. I’m very glad they’re taking this approach because it’s annoying when you can tell a game has been rushed just to get it released.
I personally don’t know much about the game, besides the fact that it’s a dungeon-crawler and a huge hit on PC. I’ve actually gotten more and more curious about it, to the point where I almost considered buying it, but if it’s coming out on Xbox I might just wait to pick it up then. If this game is pulled off successfully, this is going to be a huge story in the PC and console community. If you’ve played any Diablo games, including Diablo 3, you will definitely want to keep an eye on Blizzard, because they might be the next huge console game developer. Any thoughts? Post them below!
