Blizzard just announced that Diablo III is being developed for the Sony PlayStation 3 as well as the newly announced PlayStation 4!
Diablo III for the PS3™/PS4™ will be based on the core PC game and feature all the latest updates, including Paragon levels, the Infernal Machine event, Monster Power, Brawling, and more. This version is also being tailored with customized controls, a new user interface, and a dynamic camera perspective to provide an awesome Diablo III experience for PlayStation gamers.
Players will be able to wage war against the Burning Hells on their own in single-player games as well as team up and destroy countless demons with their fellow Nephalem in multiplayer games. For multiplayer, players will have the option to choose between four-player online (complete with matchmaking) and four-player local co-op modes for their couch-based warfare.
Rumors of Sony’s new console (PS4) had been circling the gaming sites recently. It first started with a report from Digitimes, who claimed that a Taiwanese manufacturer partners will begin production of PlayStation 4 at the end of 2011 for launch in 2012! Foxconn and Pegatron (a Taiwan- based Manufacturers) assemblers of PS3 will take on the job of assembling the PS4. The rumors also claims that a planned shipment of 20 million units will be ready for launch in 2012.
The report follows another from IndustryGamers (a reliable US news site), which claimed that a top developer industry source said that “the PlayStation 4 will become a real thing in the next 18 months”. It was also reported that PS4 will feature a body movement-based control like Kinect.
With Wii 2 due to be shown at E3 and hints of new Microsoft hardware abound, it was only a matter of time before Sony dropped hints about its plans for the next gen. Sony’s executive vice president and chief financial officer Masaru Kato has confirmed that the company is putting together a “future platform” – the almost assured PlayStation 4. He referred to Sony’s next console during a conference call to investors when asked to clarify an increase in research and development costs, according to Eurogamer.
“For the home equipment the PS3 still has a product life but this is platform business, so for the future platform – when we’ll be introducing that product, I cannot discuss that – but our development is already under way, so the costs are incurred there.”
The news contrasts claims made by Sony Computer Entertainment chief Kaz Hirai earlier this year, who said that the firm was “not deliberating” a PS4.
