An "action-packed single-player hands-on demo."

Blizzard has detailed the PlayStation 3 demo of Diablo III it plans to debut at PAX East in Boston this weekend.

“Our action-packed single-player hands-on demo will showcase several key elements that make Diablo III on the PS3 so much fun, including a reimagined interface and inventory system, direct character control, updated camera, and bosses and monsters specifically tuned for console,” said Blizzard community manager Stephanie Johnson in a blog post.

“Players will also get to experience gameplay from Act III of the campaign where they’ll get to test their mettle as either the cunning Demon Hunter or mighty Barbarian.”

Demo stations for the PlayStaton 3 version will be available from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (show opening to closing) at the Blizzard booth.

Additionally, Blizzard also plans on giving away Diablo III-themed swag like Nate Kenyon’s Diablo III: The Order book, iPhone cases, poker sets, and more.

And don’t forget, Blizzard is also set to debut something entirely new at PAX—”not a sequel, expansion or that rumored next-gen MMO,” according to the company.

    PS3 is like GraySkull.
    It has all the true power and I must have it.

    There is only one GraySkull. All the rest are poor imitations akin to a fort made behind the couch with sheets by a 5yr old. Or Prince Adam that mop headed manchild!

    Looking like PS3 is the definitive version, less PS4 just sweeps it with speed/accessibility. Now I wish I was able to be at PAX East =(

    I forgot they mentioned a new announcement. Well, with their last announcement being one of their more recent PC releases coming to consoles, I wonder if I should expect whatever it is to be PC/PS4 as well? Either way, I’m looking forward to it.

    One of the days I’ve gotta get out to PAX.

    I want to when the PS4 version comes out. If its a launch title, then I’ll go for PS4.

      It’s definitely launch window, dunno whether it’s there when the console launches itself.
