Although it hasn't been confirmed that Blizzard will bring Diablo III to consoles, we keep seeing evidence that it might happen eventually.

The latest comes from a European interview with game director Jay Wilson, where he talks about "experimenting" with console-based controls.

He says they've been fiddling around with an Xbox 360 controller, and they've found that it works very well. In fact, he says this direct control can "feel even better," which is good news. Of course, he's only talking about optional gamepad controls for the PC version, but it's still encouraging news. It means the game can easily end up on a console, although it seems apparent that PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions would likely arrive some time after the PC debut. Either way, we just want console gamers to have the opportunity.

I still remember the days of playing Diablo II with friends in college. Yeah, it was that long ago. We've been waiting a while for the third iteration.

i've been loyal to D1 and 2, grew up, moved on to demon's souls

and i don't like how the new team handles D3, breaking all the rules and D3 is hardly original

D1 and D2 both introduced a lot of things that changed the way rpg is played, everything else used to be just cookie-cutter D2 clone

D3 now looks more like another ordinary game in the blend, not impressed…

pity for flagship though, shame they never took off…

More like you grew up and the game got old. Just like me. Had my fun with it, then knew it by heart, then they added stupid runes and everyone could teleport lol.

Anyway Diablo is nowhere near the same as Demon's Souls. Fast action rpg that gives you an eventual overpowering feeling whereas Demon's Souls is like always keeping you on the edge and the single mistake can get you killed.

I don't think D1-D2 and now D3 will be a fading genre or that it evolved into something else. There just wasn't any other good D2 clone with such a good battle.net and community. D3 is that D2 clone with new story, nice graphics, probably amasing and well balanced gameplay AND a whole new cast of characters and spells.

I love both Demon's Souls and Diablo but I don't think Demon's Souls is in any way an evolution or something you get too after playing Diablo and that Diablo series is for kids or something.

Diablo will always have a special place in my heart. Part 3 will be great as well not to worry. However, D1 and D2 are old plain and simple. I am hoping ActiBlizzard comes out with HD versions. Not the Capcom HD, but real, redone HD versions. Now that would be sweet. How cool would it be to get D1, D2 and D3 on one bluray for the PS3! I can dream!

It's just one of those little things that points to a delightful opportunity. Although I wonder if, if they do bring it to consoles, it'll have KB/Mouse support for the PS3.

I'm sure they will add both for consoles. (Hopefully lol) I wouldn't mind trying it out with a Keyboard and Mouse on the PS3. I used my Keyboard for Unreal Tournament 3 it worked pretty good considering I didn't have a mouse, just a built in pad mouse for the Keyboard. lol

I suggest PC only, you wouldn't want a game that's meant for PC going to console and it ends up being a bad port. If I play this game, I'm gonna have to play it on PC.

I'm sure someone somewhere has said "When the director of Diablo says a controller feels better than keyboard and mouse, THEN I'll switch to consoles. But not a minute sooner!"

LOL… Just more PC gaming fail.
