D3 Electronic Theatre

As an action-orientated role-playing game (RPG) Diablo III has little competition on modern consoles, with perhaps only the short-lived Marvel Alliance series able to offer any real challenge to the throne. Many years have passed since Activision hadinvested in the franchise however, and despite a few digital releases the genre has remained largely faceless on console. Even the forthcoming Sacred 3 has failed to build the anticipation that it deserves, and so Diablo III enters into a landscape that it is free to mould in its own fashion. Very unlike the audience on PC then, but still Blizzard Entertainment managed to rock the boat there, and so it comes as no surprise that the same can be said of the console version.

Finally arriving on consoles more than a year after the original PC release, Diablo 3 Gold has a great reputation to uphold. More than twelve million sales already under its belt and enough acclaim to make even the biggest entertainment properties blush, Diablo III may well have already done more than enough to be considered an overwhelming success, but despite the long running rumours and reluctance to commit to a console release, it was clearly always part of Blizzard Entertainment’s plan. Now that it’s here, it’s easy to see why.
