News: Diablo III: No Cross-Play?

diablo3Gamers looking to play the upcoming console version of Diablo III have been forewarned by Blizzard that there will be no function available that will allow for users to play with their PC comrades. As well as this users were warned that the console version of Diablo III would not support a USB mouse or keyboard.

This news was shared within the Blizzard forums by the Community Manager Vaeflare who stated that:

“While we think cross-platform play would be awesome, there are currently no plans to allow connectivity between PlayStation Network and Battle.net (this is pretty standard for most games that have PC and console support). As a result, the characters on your Battle.net account and PlayStation account will also remain separate.”

Following this he added:

“In terms of allowing an analog controller hookup for the PC, we don’t have any plans for that kind of support right now. Similarly, since Diablo III for console was designed with a controller in mind, the PlayStation version of Diablo III will not support USB mice or keyboards.”

  1. Meh? i know that if the PS4’s dream of streaming all games to the Vita is a reality instead of just marketing, I’ll probably get it and play it through my Vita. Still, It’d be nice if blizzard just released it for vita too.
