Diablo 3: PS3 trailer + Offline + No Auction House

New details have been announced for the upcoming console version of Diablo 3 on PS3. Most notably is the fact that the Blizzard made, top down RPG will allow offline play for Playstation 3 users. This is of course different from the PC version of Diablo III which requires an always-on connection. Another change to the console version of Diablo 3 is the removal of  the real money auction house. Joshua Mosqueira, the lead designer of Diablo III, explained that the “ecosystems on the PC and console are very different.” He added that there would be complications regarding real money auction house security and anti-cheating mechanisms since the game can now be played offline.

The final interesting tid bit is the fact that Mosqueira said, “we’re not necessarily a Sony exclusive.” This was in reply to being asked about Diablo III being a Sony/Playstation exclusive. Additionally, we was tight lipped about the PS4 version of Diablo 3, revealing no additional details.
