And Blizzard knows this is how the consumer feels, and thus they said they will not compramise a game.
How do you know it won't please most end users? Where does your generalization come from? How is Blizzard selling out by offering their game for more formats? Are they suddenly proposing to throw "XBOX360!" stickers all over the game?! Instead of SOJ are they proposing SOXBOX?!
Your idea of selling out is wrong.

Only idiots fight like fanboys. I'm a PC gamer but unless it hurts me, why would i care what the developers do?!

It is nerd logic because you simply make 2 different servers. Simple.

This is one of age old questions, to port or not to port. I feel that Diablo is a PC GAME, not a console game. Look at what happened with Baulder's Gate, I did not like what they did with it. Where as, with the fanbase that Diablo has, Blizzard knows better than to alienate that to try and gain some console fans. It's business sense, and they see that, and to make the online work, it would be another kink in an already damn near perfect scheme. Blizzard knows that. If they were all over the console stuff, I'm sure they'd have found a way to port WoW already. But there are NO Blizzard PC Exclusive titles on Console (Warcraft, StarCraft, or Diablo). And I see that continuing. Look at Ghost, it was to go to console, and it FAILED!! (Well, indefinitely shelfed to me = fail).

Exactly what Im trying to say, games arent the same, and those who have a history with the Blizzrd titles agree.

1) The PC's native input devices (keyboard + mouse) is superior to a gamepad in virtually any genre except maybe fighting games and simple games. Besides, the PC can use a gamepad if you want as well. It pisses me off when developers make games and have to base their controls on the gamepad (i.e. Oblivion)
2) PC is scalable so developers can go crazy with eye-candy and PCs can catch up. While this cause perceived "bad graphics since I run on medium settings", the flexibility is still there. Not so much with consoles which can be a good thing for development ease but limits the wow factor.
Honestly, console graphics look just as good as PC graphics as of right now.. So yeah..

Consoles only run at about 1280 x 768. And the 360 struggles to handle the fire in Halo 3.

Wow, you counted 5 people..... who cares?! If your logic is based on majority vote you've got serious problems.

Again, i say that as long as it doesn't adversely affect my gaming, why should i care either way?!

Check your resolution.


Check virtually any PC+Console game maxed out. PC is capable of more eye-candy. Video cards only get cheaper ($80 for a 8800GS!!!) and consoles aren't due for an upgrade for 2-3 years.

Wrong.

That is 720i/p. And the resolution is 1280x720.

There is ALSO 1080i/p. That runs 1920x1080.

So yeah.. Post failed.

Aside from hurting your fanboy pride, how does them building for another console alienate their fans? I'm a fan and I say to them that they should make as much money as they can as long as they continue to makes great games for me.
