Blizzard announced this morning that Diablo III will be released on the PlayStation 3 on September 3, 2013. The company also revealed that an Xbox 360 version of the game has been in the works for quite some time and will release on the same date. Both games will be released simultaneously in the U.S., Canada, Spanish-speaking Latin America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
The games will also be fully localized in English, German, French, Latin American Spanish, European Spanish, Russian, Italian, Polish, and Brazilian Portuguese. Further release details, including retail availability in Brazil, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Southeast Asia, will be announced at a later date.
The games will carry a suggested retail price of $59.99. Those who pre-order either console version of Diablo III will receive an exclusive in-game item: the Infernal Helm, which grants an experience point boost to any character who wears it. Certain retailers will also offer limited-edition preorder bonuses.
Blizzard claims that the consoles versions of Diablo III feature custom controls to support play with a gamepad, co-op party play for up to four players via same-screen local cooperative play or online over PlayStation Network or Xbox Live. Players can also mix and match local coop teams with online players if they so choose. More importantly these games do not require a constant internet connection in order to play.
