If you’re any kind of a Blizzard fan and an inveterate PC gamer besides, a likely overlap, we’re sure you’ll agree, you’ll probably want to clear your week. And your weekend, just to be safe. You see, according to a Blizzard job posting for a Diablo 3 team member “responsible for overseeing PlayStation 3 (PS3) architecture design as well as other PS3-specific game code development to maximise platform performance.”
And unless Blizzard has hit upon some reality warping bug that might suddenly morph your PC into a PS3, that seems like a pretty sure bet the long-running pseudo-RPG franchise is heading to Sony’s console. Which means that not only is Blizzard making a move towards consoles, but they’re doing it via one of their cherished PC franchises. Cue the wailing and gnashing of teeth. Unless they’re just – um – messing with us. Or it’s for that completely unrelated Diablo console concept Blizzard was talking about back in November, in which case the wailing is perhaps premature.
