Diablo 3 for the consoles, no surprise there.

I still laughed. Whoooo - Diablo 3...


Except for this bit -

Metzen says Diablo 3 has been customized to play on consoles, with a four-player, full-screen co-op mode for online and offline multiplayer.

WTF... the consoles get an offline mode? Though to be honest, if I can log in with my existing account and use my characters on my ps3 in local co-op I would probably, shamefully, buy it again


Well when he walked out, I thought "wow, if they lined up titan for PS4, that'll be surprising!"...and then they roll D3.

I was hoping for something from R* - GTA, Agent, anything...

We basically know that, unless there is a huge surprise, we'll get more of the same.

We sort of know...It's a AMD pc, disguising as a console. Will be the same I hear from MS. When that is announced, the 15 year old fight is over. PC's did in fact win, the console became a close PC.

I'm on a terrible connection now, but I feel no reason to pay attention to this.

90% of what was said for the PS3 never happened. We never got the graphics promised. PS2, too.

We basically know that, unless there is a huge surprise, we'll get more of the same.

I can't believe they didn't show a picture of it, that's a pretty basic thing.

Sony Just Had a Two Hour PS4 Event With No PS4

Did anyone else think of Myst while watching Blow's game?

8 cores, high-end GPU, cutting edge graphics....sounds like they're just describing what we already have on the PC.

Sounds like dev and porting should be a breeze. What needs to happen is all three platforms come up with a standardized OS for all. The PC would then be the console w k/m and user controlled upgrade path. The rumors look to be true, stating high-end GPU would be pushing it, it was very mediocre from what I recall.

I like how AMD is on the rocks and they will be totally controlling the both big consoles in both proc and gpu

How much money do you expect them to get out of this when we pretty well know the console itself will be sold at a loss? It's like hosting the olympics.

I agree, I have to assume this has been discussed with both MS and Sony and some type of contingency has to be in place to protect that there will be HW no matter what.

Why buy your own car, when you can just buy theirs? Just remember to drive exactly how they tell you to, listen only to their music and make sure you always take the toll-road.

With next gen consoles coming out maybe PC game (ports) will finally start to look decent again.

8 Gig is the main win for pc gamers.

8 Core modded bulldozer and mid'ish level video card, all good. That will move us pc'ers to 8 core Intels ftw.

I like how AMD is on the rocks and they will be totally controlling the both big consoles in both proc and gpu. That means to me Intel and NVidia need to show up and take care of us, their customers.

X86 all that... Should make porting and development for the makers all the better.

Impressive specs, glad they went with 8GB of DDR5 as thats what has been holding back console development the most. They held too much back for E3 but I guess they need some stuff to take the wind out of Microsofts sails then.
