Blizzard, the company behind World of Warcraft and Starcraft, has announced that Diablo III is now available for pre-order for the PlayStation 3 console. I'm sure most of our readers will remember that Diablo III originally launched last May for the PC and suffered some major launch issues.
Blizzard has not specified a specific release date, instead saying that "further release details, including region-specific availability, will be announced at a later date." Gamers who put down the $59.99 required to pre-order the game will be rewarded with an exclusive in-game item: the Infernal Helm.
Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment:
We've poured blood, sweat, and hellfire into creating an epic Diablo III experience for PlayStation gamers. In addition to including all the improvements from the PC version over the past year, we've made several updates to Diablo III for play on the PS3. We got a ton of positive feedback from players who tried the game at PAX East, and we can't wait to get it into everyone's hands later this year.
