Most have assumed we'd see Diablo III on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at some point. But unfortunately, it still isn't an "official project."
But on the positive side, Blizzard executive Rob Pardo told Polygon that the game is actually "up and running" on console(s) (not sure which console he was referring to, or if he meant both the PS3 and 360). Said Pardo:
"We're still kind of exploring it. We've got builds up and running on it. We're hoping to get it far enough along where we can make it an official project, but we're not quite ready to release stuff about it, but it's looking pretty cool."
Well, that's nice and everything but if it isn't even an official project for the company yet, exactly how far away is it? And when it finally does arrive for consoles, will we even care? At this rate, it might not show up until the next-gen systems are on store shelves, and then Diablo III might have to fly under the radar. Oh, and I just have to say- If I have to constantly be connected just to play, like a freakin' MMO, you can count me out, Blizzard.
