Playing it with my two sons on the 360 on our TV. My only gripe is having to wait for them to decide what gear they want to equip/sell/buy as well as what spells/skills they want to employ. I guess it would look like crap if you split screen it, but oh well. Otherwise, it's a lot of fun.

You reach a threshhold at level 60 where the same items that drop are either really good or really crap despite being the same item. There isn't/wasn't any progression for your character other than keep grinding away at the same crafting recipie or en-mass farm trash. Stats are farily static, no clear specialisation for higher quality items. A common item can be massively better than a legendary which is just ludicrous. The patch was supposed to make ledgedary items worthy of the quality level and offer better allocations of stats, more variety and more frequent drops.

 

 

It's been very thoroughly discussed by the PC community.

Thanks a lot!

 

 

OK, I'm off work and ready to play :woot:

It is just a silly, watered down version of the game. ARPG's are not meant to be played with a controller, but it does look like Blizzard did a decent job with the controls.

 

I've enjoyed plenty of them on consoles. If the devs get the UI right, then its fine. I'd prefer a controller to play tbh.

I just want the controller support on my PC version, then I'll be fine. I'm not sure it'll be better, but I definitely want to give it a go. If it works out great I could always just put my PC onto my TV.

Different UI, plus they added things like the roll/dodge for the consoles.

 

It just wouldn't work.

So has anyone spent enough time with this version of the game to offer opinions? "This version" meaning the PS3 or 360 version. Does the loot that is dropping seem to be better than the PC version? How is the performance? (screen tearing, fps dips, etc)

Can you play online with a pc user whilst being on the console version of the game?

(does it connect through battle.net?)

This article here should answer your performance questions.

No, you cannot. The console versions don't connect to Battle.net at all.

Agreed.

 

I played it on 360 but I doubt there are many differences between it & the PS3 version. With that said, it comes across as a very watered down "noob" friendly version, which is not how you should experience D3. Of course the reason behind it is because of the lack of AH, the looting & the differences between the platforms gaming styles.

 

It's definitely not a better game on the console though which is what I found puzzling from the reviews this week. Having an extra 13 months development you expect all the bug fixes to be included by now. I'd be more worried if they hadn't.

 

The menus are good and I'd say they've managed to improve upon what Torchlight did on 360, but it's obviously not as straightforward as the PC UI.

 

Will be interesting to see sale numbers and if RoS is ported.

I'm quite impressed with the game so far.  The UI has been completely redesigned altogether and optimized for console/controller use.  They did a better job with it than I thought.  And there's no always-online DRM or Auction House which is great.  The 4 player local co-op is still one of its best selling points so far, it makes for a great multiplayer beat-em-up.

That's pretty sad considering that's what I felt about PC D3 to begin with...

Please let me know if this game plays well with a controller...

 

 

I played the demo and it seems fine. Only PC purists would dismiss it.
