Blizzard announced today that certain retailers are now taking preorders for the PlayStation 3 version of Diablo III. Diablo III for Sony’s PS3 was already scheduled to go on sale later this year (in time, presumably for BlizzCon 2013 in November) for a suggested retail price of $59.99. Gamers who pre-order the PS3 version of Diablo III will receive the “Infernal Helm” an exclusive in-game item, as well as be in the running for other limited-edition preorder bonuses. If you have been waiting to fight with the Lord of Terror using your PlayStation controller instead of a keyboard and mouse, then the time is now to make sure you get a copy of Diablo III for the PS3 on reserve!
The PS3 version of Diablo III has been custom-tailored for PlayStation gamers, with updates to the game’s thrilling boss battles, an all-new user interface featuring an intuitive control system, and a dynamic camera perspective that will make vanquishing evil feel like second nature on the PlayStation. Players can take on the vile denizens of the Burning Hells alone or in a party of up to four via same-screen local cooperative play, online play over the PlayStation Network, or any combination of online or local players. Once gamers experience the rush of Diablo III’s unique brand of hack-and-slash gameplay from the comfort of their couch, Sanctuary will never be the same.
