Prepare your surprised faces: Diablo III is coming to Xbox 360 as well as PlayStation 3. Both versions of the game will be launched on September 3, 2013. Remember, of course, that D3 is also headed to PlayStation 4, so we’re not ruling out an Xbox One release as well, hopefully by the end of the year.
Right now though, hell will be reborn on two consoles to start off with, so you’d better hop to your local gaming retailer and set up a pre-order.
If you do, you’ll be rewarded for your quick thinking: All pre-orders of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Diablo III will also include the in-game Infernal Helm, which will give you a nifty +EXP bonus, helping you to bring your characters up to speed. (Keep in mind, warns Blizzard – redeeming the Helm will require an internet connection, and cannot be transferred between platforms).
…Blizzard also notes that because it’s kinda dropped a bombshell on this one (we all knew it was coming, we just didn’t know when), your local retailer might not have the Xbox 360 version of Diablo III on file. Please be patient.
