Blizzard: Diablo III is ‘suited to consoles’

The Diablo III console saga continues with Blizzard perhaps making its most committed claim yet. Senior designer Jason Bender has effectively said there is no real barrier to bringing the highly anticipated RPG to PS3 and Xbox 360, since the game is quite suited to a console environment. 

“I think it is suited to consoles,†he says. “We’re definitely working, obviously, on the PC version. This is something that’s been brought up a lot about Diablo. It’s sort of an ongoing question. And I’m sure we would all love to play it on console, but right now, we’re just focused on what we’ve got in front of us. Who knows what the future holds? It’s hard to say.â€

At least if it does finally come to consoles, the mental PC gamers won’t get to say “AW DEY GIMPED DA PC VERSION FOR DE CONSOLES.” Oh wait … they’ll probably say that anyway.
