Heaven knows Acti-Blizzard don't have the kind of resources Valve was able to muster in making Portal 2 function across platforms...

Most console games don't cross-play with PC because they're designed with the 360 in mind, and Microsoft doesn't let anyone in and out of their walled garden (without paying for the privilege, and that's one way only). No such restriction on the PS3.

If anything, this might be a case where PC-console cross-platform play got scuttled from the PC end. After all, Blizzard doesn't want anything getting into their precious...

Also do not forget that they cannot balance out the game with a pad on console and the game on a pc with keyboard, mouse, macro and all the rest.
There will be a gazilion people crying cause the pc guys do better and all.

This is impetus to disallow keyboards even on consoles -- suppose a handful use them, and destroy the controller-bound hoi polloi, who give up and go away reporting how terrible the game is. You would need segregated battlegrounds even on the same box, from a corporate strategy point of view.
