Diablo 3 on console would be another Team Fortress 2: what you get on launch day is all you'll ever get. No bugfixes, no upgrades, no buffs or nerfs. I don't think Blizzard will go for that.
Or they'll just package it all up into one big update, of which the first is free.

I'm not a fan of a buffing and nerfing every couple of months.
It was very disapointing to log on one day and see your class loose 200 Spell power,
after investing half a year of raiding to collect all the epics that granted you that much spell power points to begin with.

Crap like that gets accounts canceled and I think it shouldn't be implemented at all.

Diablo 1 was on the playstation. I loved to play it on ps rather than a pc ,back in the days.
It used to take 1 slot for character save and 12 for game save, so i am left with 2 free spaces.
OT: maybe thats why its so delayed...

Frequent updates are not a problem on XBL. All 3 Halo's get updated weekly, Undead Labs is releasing an MMO for the Xbox 360 and likely PS3 as well. Microsoft and Sony are only strict on updates when they are done by less experienced companies. Companies like Blizzard who has plenty of experience QAing and pushing out updates have less rules to abide by.

And Diablo 3 would likely sell more copies on just the Xbox 360 than PC, since that is a very realistic trend that has taken place the last 5 years. Microsoft and Blizzard are interested in money, and a console Diablo would make them lots of money, more than the PC release in fact, so expect to see them working out the simple problems so they can make that money.

Yes, but it was ported by another publisher. Diablo was originally an exclusive for PC.

Console players want to play PC games then they can buy one if you ask me. No more cross platform if you ask me. Notice every game they do this with always seems to come out buggy/half-assed all around but mostly PC gets the bad end of the deal.
Also I played Diablo on the PS1...it was dreadful to say the least. They would need to sell a keyboard/mouse to truly enjoy that game. Plus because of the crappy controls they had to really idiot up the mobs.

sadly this will probably happen, didn't they already setup the skill bar so that there are only 3 or 4 active spells? Perfect for controllers
