Diablo 3 - Console Release Is Official

It's official now. During Blizzcon 2011, Josh Mosquiera from Blizzard Entertainment has revealed that there will be a console version of Diablo 3.
A possible console version of D3 has only been a rumour - until now. After Destructoid has interviewed Josh as Blizzard's Lead Console Designer, the news was offical.

Where is your camp in Diablo 3?
But why wasn't this release revealed earlier, you might ask.
Josh: "We're not announcing anything because, literally, there's three of us on the team right now ... but that's what we're trying to do... We're trying to build the best console team at Blizzard. Blizzard is really serious about going back to the console".

So if only three people are working on this title, the game will be released somewhere far in the future, while the PC version of Diablo 3 will be released early next year. Its official release date was changed about a month ago. Unfortunately, Blizzard denied a public beta for D3 so only PC gamers can explore the world showed by the map you see on the right.

What? Well I guess on the other hand console players can play if they don't want to be on the PC.

Well at least they can't put crippling and annoying DRM on a console game.

I think.

if they do the "mousee movement" good, it's a perfect console game and I'll buy it before than in pc, at least you can be sure that battlenet isn't cheated.
