    This is possibly a saving grace of the game. After failing miserably, the ones who were irrefutably guilty of gaming misconduct caused by lack of skill which led to the team's defeat will be nearby so that you can flail them with your controller.

    Hint: It's never your fault.

    So many people got butthurt over this being announced for PS3, but it's like, who cares?

    Honestly, it's a mediocre game. Just buy Torchlight 2 which is a better Diablo game anyways, and it's cheaper.

    It might have that many sales, but if you actually go online to play it... Ghost town. The campaign is short and Inferno is just a gear check grindathon. (I am half way through act 3 Inferno and got sooo bored I haven't touched the game in months.)

    Even selling things for real money and making money on the game wasn't enough to keep me interested, meanwhile I played Diablo II and its expansion for years and was ranked pretty high up on the ladder for a few different seasons on multiple classes. (I never did quite master Sorceress....)

    That's a nice touch, but I just don't think it will be enough. According to word of mouth, this game Dia-blows.

    I'd forgotten. Sales are a clear-cut indicator of the quality of a game. If it sells millions, it's a good game.

    /s

    Food for thought: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 sold over 14 million, just on the 360.

    this isn't about good or bad.
    from my point of view they did great job for the game, 10 millions is a lot of numbers.

    let's face it... how many good games out there struggling to get more sales?

    I can make a list but I'll start with the ones off the top of my head

    Psychonauts, Binary Domain, Valkyria Chronicles, God Hand, Arx Fatalis, Bayonetta, Metro 2033, Vanquish, Shadows Of The Damned, Beyond Good and Evil...I can go on for miles.

    Do people still need to be reminded that sales numbers don't equate to quality?

    Come on, guys, it's 2013. Step it up.

    yay local co-op
    I am not sure forced single screen works though- it worked halfway OK with Dungeon Siege 3 and the Baldur's gate dark alliance games but they were largely built for it. Diablo and such like were always nicer when a person could town portal up and back without dragging everybody else back with them (granted it was single player but Fate even gave your animal the ability to do it for you), that said I have not played 3 yet so it could work.

    Mediocre? The game was crap at best.

    By your logic Aliens CM is now a good game...it isn't. It is an okay game for what it turned out to be. but it is far from what Sega and gamers were promised and that makes it suck big time.

    I'll probably try the game when it's at a $40 or below price.

    Also the PS3 doesn't have Torchlight II (or Torchlight) so if you want a dungeon crawler this is probably your best bet.

    Preference of platform kicks in. Some people love their PS3s more, so even if they can get the game running on their PCs, they don't, instead opting for a PS3 version. Some people might not have a PC to game on, but own a PS3. Some people might have played the PC version and hated the perma-online.

    Why would people get mad over ANY game announcement for a console?

    It doesn't hurt other versions of the game and it gives the console one more game. If you don't like the game, don't buy it. It won't affect your other games. If it comes from your prized console and it's no longer exclusive, stop being an exclusionist cunt.

    ...On your PSN ID page it says "#PS3MASTERRACE".

    It does because I only use hashtags when I'm dead serious.

    I played Diablo III like...10 minutes on PC and just couldn't do it. Hopefully the linearity of it fits the console version well.
