When Diablo 3 lands on the PS3 and PS4 it won't have some of the features or the requirements that its PC counterpart currently has. According to Polygon, a Blizzard official told them at PAX East this weekend that Diablo 3 will not require a constant internet connection in order to play.
While that's good news for PS3 and PS4 players, the bad news is that they will not have access to the online auction system for buying and selling in-game items either. There will be a way to trade items with other players, but the details on that are "to be announced."
"Players can trade (whether offline or online) using an in-game menu," a spokesperson told Polygon. "They just need to be playing in the same game. We should have more details soon."
The Blizzard spokesperson also said that there are currently no plans to add gamepad support for the computer version of Diablo 3.
A release date for the console version of the game has not been announced. When asked if Blizzard had plans to bring the game to any other console platforms, the spokesperson declined comment.
