    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 thought an offline mode was what people wanted?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Maybe the reason they still haven't launched D3 PvP is because they were working on adapting D3 for consoles, which also included adapting it for offline mode, which they will patch into the PC version as soon as D3 for consoles drops.

    And then we'll fart rainbows and unicorns will accompany us on our walks through fields made of fudge and treacle.

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

    Heh, while not unexpected this still managed to surprise me. We've already guessed as much when we looked at the UI and the abilities. But still, sigh.

    Each day it seems like gaming is going in a direction that I'm not happy with. In a few year's time Dwarf Fortress is all I'll have left if this trend continues. I wish I liked puzzles or platformers or tower defending so I could enjoy most of what indies have to offer.

    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?

    Diablo 3 has been destined for console for a long time. They moved to a controller friendly number of buttons about half way through beta.

    When I first heard it I thought he might mean offline as in your coop friends are also offline, rather than the entire game. Not sure though.
