German retailer Redcoon is listing a PlayStation 3 version of Diablo III set for release this year.

According to sources of NeoGAF member Cyntec, one of which is the retailer, who “mentioned their distributor,” and the other a “source I can’t tell you, otherwise heads will roll,” the game is to be announced at Sony’s E3 press conference today.

Stay tuned.

    I sorta expected this to happen already. If they do announce it at e3 for consoles, I wouldn’t be surprised.

    I would be surprised if it was exclusive to PS3. It would make sense though, considering the restriction MS has with xbl.

      @Zero:
      It will be awesome if we can play Diablo III via cross-platform play no matter what platform we are using.

      Yeah sadly that was so true.

    Hm good news for everyone who couldn’t get the game for PC (not that it needs a powerful PC).

    So, is this in return for giving the PC (pirate console) Dark Souls ?

      @Gaara D. Dragon:
      I dont know what do you mean by “pirate console” but maybe Blizzard Entertainment want a new experience in console games by releasing Diablo III in console.

    Looking forward to seeing if this is true or not. It certainly makes sense that PS3 would be the console it would be on given that they allowed Steamworks integration into Portal 2 and Microsoft didn’t. I am sure Blizzard required Battle.Net intergration and Sony clearly wouldn’t mind and Microsoft would.

    Can’t wait for the show to start. :)

    Please coming to 360 too (if it’s true). :\

    I still dont see how they can get the targeting system to work anywhere near decently. Inferno would be freaking impossible on a console. This would also explain why there’s so many balance issues in the game…They really should (have) fix(ed) the PC version before even working on a console version.

    This would be hilarious if it was PS3 exclusive.

    Of course….when people talk exclusives this gen….Sony is usually in the conversation as well.

    Good on you Sony if true.

    Continue providing value to your loyal customers. Show that other company how its done.
