Diablo III confirmed for Xbox 360, ships September 3rd

Also, 'dat offline play and no Auction House

It appears as if the Xbox 360 will be joining the Diablo III loot-fest console party, as the game is now set for a September 3rd release date for both the 360 and PS3, priced at $59.99. Local and online play are re-confirmed for both versions. The PS4 version is still in the works for a future release, presumably near or at the console's launch. I guess Sony had "timed announcement exclusivity?"

Either way, this is a great day for 360 and PS3 fans alike, as the game will allow offline play and will eliminate the Auction House entirely. With the new Director essentially admitting they made a ton of mistakes, I have high hopes for Diablo III's future. Maybe, just maybe they'll slowly eliminate the online requirement for the PC version due to the overwhelming success of the console version, and by the time the first expansion rolls around, we'll have a superior version of the game.
