Update: Blizzard has just confirmed Diablo 3 for Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 (when it comes out).
- Using an engine means they’ll complete Diablo 3 sooner (2007?)
- Havok supports Mac OSX, so making Diablo 3 run on a Mac will be seamless
- Havok supports PS3 so MAYBE we can see Diablo 3 on PS3.
The Diablo on Playstation stuff is perhaps premature BUT listen to this: Havok gets three times better performance from PS3 compared to a high-end PC. And why would Blizzard want an engine that does well on a console unless they plan to use it.
So we could be seeing Diablo 3 on Playstation as well. If we do, there’s a good chance Diablo 3 won’t be a MMO.
