What I'm saying is that the control scheme must absolutely be compromised to work on consoles. And the game complexity with it. It just irks me when people say that Diablo can be done "perfectly" on consoles, simply because their barbarian playing style with which they finished the campaign on normal or nightmare would work with a controller.
Hmmm make sense. Announce both Starcraft II and WOLK release dates at WWI, and then show a trailer for Diablo 3 to let the fans know that more is coming in years beyond. That's how I would do it if I was the PR manager of Blizzard.
I believe. The 3m, the fact that he is the most prolific character in the image all but confirms it. If this is suppose to be all WOTKL or Starcraft 2, Arthas and Kerrigan should be more of the focus. It is clear, Diablo 3 is coming.
The thing with that artwork is... Diablo is clearly the dominant bit, front and center, with that oddly 3-shaped fire in his hand. That's a bit more substantial than featuring him or his face in some random background portion. Arthas and Corrigan are relegated to smaller avatars set off to the side. And these are confirmed games/expansions that will sell immensely well. So they're going to shovel them to the side just to remind you that, HEY, D2 will be at this event as well!
Of course, this could just be a monstrously huge cocktease.
Overall, I get this egging feeling that since its being done by the Diablo I & II teams and calling for Next Gen MMO programmers I get:
A) Its an MMO
B) Done by the Diablo Peeps
C) Another Game to Print Money for Blizzard!
Diablo MMO would pretty much destroy the human population in some parts of the world.
