A fan typed up a pretty thorough guide about how to prepare for the many game changes coming in Patch 2.3
Details of Diablo 3 Console Exclusive ItemsPosted 12 Jun 2013 by
Blizzard has released info on console-exclusive items. These are all included with the game for players who buy with pre-orders, much like the Angelic Wings D3CE buyers can use to fly fly fly their way to glory in the PC version. Both consoles get the cosmetic bonus items, while only PS3 users also get the bonus items with useful stats and features. (I’d use Leah’s Ring right now on my Paragon characters, were it available in the PC version.)
Here’s the Blueth:
Exclusive PS3™ In-Game Items:
Players who purchase Diablo® III on the PS3™ will also receive five additional PS3-exclusive in-game items:
Please note that console preorder bonuses and PS3-exclusive in-game items cannot be transferred across platforms, and players will need a connection (to Xbox LIVE® or PlayStation® Network, respectively) in order to receive these items.
Weird that PS3 users get all the cool items, while there’s nothing functional for XBoxers. Did Bill Gates steal Bobby’s chair at the annual entertainment tycoon luncheon, or what? Perhaps Xbox bonus items will be revealed later? We’ve months until the release date, after all.
Update: Blizzard later reworked these items with improved stats and lowered level reqs.
