This was kinda expected, Sony is more open to 3rd party gaming online infrastructures [Steam, CCP's F2P shooter].

Plus, PS3 supports keyb/mouse [although i doubt D3 will use them].

Sony's megatons are leaking early. Let's hope they can keep SOME surprises.

If this is true I bet it's entirely because of the auction house/always online drm. Way too late in the cycle to pay for third party exclusives.

that'd be huge if true and probably because Sony is willing to have Battle.net on PS3 and Microsoft is not on 360

It would make more sense, considering how close Activision-Blizzard has been to Microsoft this gen. At the same time I don't know how they would have Battle.net working on there.

I can't find the mention of exclusivity on that page, though (but I quickly browsed through the text, and my German is rusty)

If this is true and I can link my CE Battle.net account to it for cross-platform play then holy crap, I might finally be able to play this game and not at 8 FPS. :)

So one of the most successful games this years is gonna be released on a console. Shocking!

At most it's a timed exclusive*. I doubt even that.

*regarding consoles

Alan Wake is present only on one console, therefore its "console exclusive" to one platform even though there is a PC version.

The distributor only mentions PS3 (in other words: exklusive), no word on a 360-version yet. And since PS3 actually supports mouse and keyboard this would make much sense.

Requires always online which is free on PS3. So why would Blizzard need PS+ for this?

No it doesn't. Blizzard isn't going to release a game which would require non-standard peripherals. If it comes to console, it'll work with a controller, and probably only a controller.

Diablo 3 with it's AH system and mouse and keyboard integration makes sense for PS3.
Microsoft has always been real stingy about allowing anything of the sort on XBL.

Still, I can't imagine Microsoft denying Blizzard like that.

We wouldn't, although we might suppose based on Microsoft's inflexibility regarding their network. (see: Steam). Also, I sort of called it, and this makes my prediction of a Vita version even more likely...

If Blizzard ports Diablo 3 to consoles, they aren't going to make you plug a mouse and keyboard into your PS3.
