    Diablo 3 on PS3 / PS4 is Going to Have Offline Play



    8 minutes, 30 seconds if that doesn't work properly.

    So yeah.

    Fuck you, Blizzard.

    I got the PC version "free" with a WoW sub, and I still felt ripped off.

    That quote that good old Jay Wilson will never live down seems to be how Blizzard views their entire existing fan base.

    Maybe I'm paranoid, but it seems convenient that they've also withheld major features such as PvP, when the game's been out for nearly a year. In before timed exclusive content for PS4.

    I thought an offline mode was what people wanted?

    So, what? People don't want the console version to have an offline mode? Seems a bit... petty, I guess. Just cos the PC version doesn't have one, doesn't mean you should hope the console version is just as bad.

    DeadHerald, I don't think what you think I think is actually what I'm thinking.

    Dead Herald, I believe you have misinterpreted what I was trying to say.

    This is what I'm guessing and getting at. I dunno about the rainbows and unicorns and fields of fudge... and maybe I'm too much of an optimist in regards to it coming to PC.

    OK... Firstly, there's talking to yourself. And then there's posting messages to yourself on an internet forum. Secondly, Oi... oi, oi, oi. The NSDAP party flag? Are you just testing the tolerance for Godwinning here?

    Whoa dude, calm down. I'm just messing with you. Just a little joke. Grammar Nazi, don't you get it? I'm not suggesting anything beyond that. Sorry, I'll use the "G" flag next time. No offense intended.

    I'm German and seeing that flag makes me think about the past. I will have to sue you for causing me emotional distress and adversely affecting my work performance. We shall see each other at court.

    Ignoring amazingly silly comments, I wonder is this also part of the reason they've very recently stated that the online AH was a failure in game terms, that people didn't play the game to get gear upgrades, but rather only went to the AH for upgrades.

    It's always "great" to see a company starting to sing a different song when they need to change something.

    Where did he said it was having offline play? Local co-op does not mean you can do it offline. Once we see it at PAX East or someone asks the question directly, we still do not know. Be cool to have cross platform play but sounds doubtful, since you use your PSN friends list. "local co op and online co op" Offline was not said anywhere.

    It's always "great" to see a company starting to sing a different song when they need to change something.
    Then they either should have never had it or had better loot mechanics. Who would not want the AH? Did millions really want to stick to wasting time in trade channels spamming WTB WTS WTT. There are websites that facility trade and auction systems using the web API to access your currently equipped items (since that is what the API only sees and not your inventory). But still that is an extra step.

    That seemed a problem in Titan Quest. I could have the same item for a full play through since I never got a better drop. Sure I did a few repeat boss runs here and there (D2 style) but that is not nearly as fun as progressing through the game. With a RNG loot system you can not really gurantee said person will get consistent upgrades for their class. Or maybe because there is to many RNG options for loot to drop as in D3 that your chances of getting an upgrade is lowered by a lot.
