Blizzard is contemplating releasing a console version of its upcoming hack-and-slash role-playing game Diablo III, promising that it will be “a true Blizzard-level experience.”

 
Paul Sams, the company's COO, told CVG that the game would need some tweaking from the PC version, but that a console version makes sense and that a decision to go forward with this idea would not be made primarily for financial reasons.
 
Blizzard admitted that a console version would depend on how many hoops it has to jump through with the console manufacturers. It said that if it is incredibly difficult or costly to do, it would make the company think twice, but even then it would not automatically rule out the possibility.

A console port of the game might depend entirely on the success of the PC version, which will release on 15 May, with many fans cautious after considerable ruckus was caused when a community manager told players to lower their expectations, a recommendation that was refuted by the game's director. A last-minute decision to axe player-versus-player combat from the game and release it in a later patch did not help the situation.
 
Sams did not give any possible timeframe for the release of a console version, but given how long it took the company to develop the game for the PC it could be years away. He also did not specify which consoles would get the game, but we imagine it would want to release on more than just one of the available platforms.
