Diablo III release date confirmed for 360 and PS3

Diablo III is coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 3, Blizzard has confirmed.

It has been ported with “gamepad-driven action” in mind, says Blizzard, with a dynamic camera and a new user interface. Up to four players will be able to participate in local or online multiplayer, and Blizzard also outlined incentives for those that pre-order, with some special edition packages headed to retail.

“In addition to the fine-tuning we’ve done for the console versions, we’re also including major content and design updates we’ve made to the PC version over the past year,” said CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Mike Morhaime.
