PlayStation gamers, the time has come to prepare for your confrontation with the Lord of Terror. Select retailers around the world have now begun taking preorders for the upcoming PlayStation 3 system version of Diablo III—see the official website for a list of participating retailers. Fully reimagined for couch-based gaming, Diablo III for PS3 will go on sale later this year for a suggested retail price of $89.95 AUD. Further release details, including region-specific availability, will be announced at a later date.
“We’ve poured blood, sweat, and hellfire into creating an epic Diablo III experience for PlayStation gamers,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “In addition to including all the improvements from the PC version over the past year, we’ve made several updates to Diablo III for play on the PS3. We got a ton of positive feedback from players who tried the game at PAX East, and we can’t wait to get it into everyone’s hands later this year.”
