More Diablo 3 Console Questions and Answers

Some more short Q&A coverage of technical details about the Diablo 3 Console, via Blue replies:

By default all 360 games can play your own music streamed from your PC or hard drive. Can this be done on the PS3.
Grimiku: Each platform has its own set of features, and background audio is supported a little differently between the two consoles. They both have the original background soundtrack, but only the Xbox 360 will allow you to play custom music.

Can i use my Diablo 3(PS3) disc on Ps4?
Grimiku: I thought I heard the answer to this at some point, but I double checked around the office (and in google) to be sure. The PS4 is not backwards compatible with a PS3 disc.

I know pc got pvp, but will there be console pvp? If so, can we duel for gold?
Grimiku: The console version of Diablo III has all of the PC content up to patch 1.0.7 (and then some), so it’ll have the Brawling feature, but no additional options for it.

Apologies for not posting an article about my Diablo 3 Console play testing yet. I talked about all the interesting stuff (controls and feel and movement and targeting and economy/balance promises) on the TDP #97, but I do want to get it in writing as well, and add some more details to my verbal account. Soon!

  1. Only interesting thing with the console D3 is that it can be played offline. Which I really hope they can offer for the PC version as well. Perhaps as a ‘gift’ with the D3 expansion?

    • Off line is impossible in the PC version. No sane publisher will make an off line game with real currency involved.

      • Disable the AH for offline play and the problem is solved. Players who want to play offline probably won’t miss it anyway. Also, having access to the AH technically cannot be called an offline play, since the AH requires an internet connection. 🙂

        • Also upon disabling AH they need to shut down the Bnet servers as soon as someone clicks “Offline Single Player Mode”. This prevents stats going to the Bnet Profiles which in turn will decrease the desire to cheat/hack items. Offline mode should be for those who lose internet, hate playing online games/MP games, travel or want to play while patching. Competetion should be limited to friends/family over network/ip, not over Bnet with others.


          • I imagine offline play as a separate game mode. Another 10 (or unlimited) character slots and no communication with the servers at all, so offline characters shouldn’t appear on your profile. They can disable achievements as well for all I care.
