PLEASE SAY IT’S SO: Diablo III Listed for Xbox One

xbox one diablo 3

This would be some bomb-ass news.

Canada Best Buy and FutureShop recently had Diablo III listed for Xbox One, complete with a fancy “COMING SOON” header atop the boxart. The removing has since been removed, BUT THE SAME CANNOT BE SAID FOR MY HOPE. I will never lose hope. Diablo III will come to Xbox One or my name isn’t Brittney Alistair. (Which it, uh, isn’t. This does not bode well…) Regarding the listing, Blizzard has told IGN, “One of our goals is to bring Diablo III to as many players as possible, but we don’t have any other platform announcements to share at this time.” DAMMIT I KNEW IT.

But seriously, while that’s not the most encourage news, I don’t see any sensible logic in keeping this bad boy away from Xbox One owners. Methinks it will hit Microsoft’s machine eventually, and IT BETTER. ;____; You see, I recently finished Diablo III on the Xbox 360, and I would love nothing more than to be able to transfer my beautiful barbarian, Buttsex, to the new and shiny version. The replay value of that game is friggen’ ridiculous and you BEST believe I’d gladly devote several more hours of my life to it.

Er…It’s not the most, erm, detailed and quality-ridden photo, but I promise you she’s a looker.

Generally “rumors” that start out this way end up being true, but I’m still going to keep all of my limbs crossed and whatnot in hopes they bring more likelihood to this situation. 

HNNNGHHHH.

Now that we’re sorta-kinda on the topic…

What was with all of the Diablo III hate? I know about that infamous “error 37” that caused a lot of heartache for folks, but now that’s over and done with (at least I assume it is) do people generally dislike like Diablo III? I feel like whenever I posted something about it — whether on Facebook, Twitter, etc. — the majority of responses I received were “HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!” “DIABLO III SUCKS!” “YOUR MOM!”. Perhaps the console version is easier to navigate or something, I dunno, but I sincerely, sincerely enjoyed my time with it.

    The hate basically stems from two things. First, It’s been dramatically simplified and offers nowhere near the amount of content and in-depth character progression as Diablo II.

    Second, vocal fans online are an aggressively obnoxious minority. They hate everything.

    Diablo III is a fantastic game for what it is. There’s a lot of safe arguments that Diablo II was better (and I agree with basically all of them), but D3 is still an immensely satisfying game with an excellent shelf life.

      Ahhhhhhhhhhh. That’s interesting. This is the first time I’ve actually played a Dibalo game from start to finish, so I had a feeling there was something I was missing. Thanks!

        Wow, you really have never played Diablo 2? Diablo 1 was ok but I thought everyone had played Diablo 2 by now. Interesting.
        But then I still haven’t seen the original Star Trek series. So I cant really say to much. lol

    I just started playing D3 on the 360, and I’m enjoying it so far. Then again, I’m playing other things when I’m doing single player stuff, and saving D3 for multiplayer, so that might be part of it.

    • Brittney Brombacher

      Oooh right. Yeah, multiplayer is the only way to go.
