Yep, Diablo III: Reaper of Souls is a lock for PS4

While the return of Blizzard All-Stars (now known as Heroes of the Storm) has me most anticipating BlizzCon 2013, there's another announcement today that can be considered good news. Blizzard has confirmed that the Reaper of ...

No Blizzcon in 2012, convention returns in 2013 photo
No Blizzcon in 2012, convention returns in 2013
by Jim Sterling

Blizzard has declared that there will be no Blizzcon this year, meaning that World of Warcraft fans have lost the one thing in real life they were planning to do this year. Haha, insulting nerd humor!

The convention will return in 2013. 

A "jam-packed schedule" has been blamed for the lack of Blizzcon, with the studio working hard on Diablo III, Titan, a new WoW expansion and updates to StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. The Battle.net championship will be held in Asia toward the end of the year. 

Pretty huge news! Were you looking forward to Blizzon this year, or are you totally cool with this?
