Diablo III Announced For September Launch on Xbox 360
Written By
View author's profile

Activision Blizzard has just announced that its notorious dungeon crawler, Diablo III, will be coming to Xbox 360, following earlier announcements pertaining exclusively to the PS3 and PS4 versions. Now we know for certain that it'll definitely be coming to Xbox 360 too, and it'll be coming in September.

Pre-orders will come with the XP boosting Infernal Helm, which you can wear from level one to help build up your character at a faster rate. It'll apparently suit all character classes, whether you choose to be a Witch Doctor, Demon Hunter, Barbarian, Wizard or Monk.

Diablo III will be taking you to Sanctuary to face the sinister forces of the Burning Hells, when it launches for Xbox 360 on September 3rd, 2013. Check out the first screenshot from the Xbox 360 version below.

This is good news. Good news indeed!
However, they should have done it as a launch for XBONE. Maybe it will still make an appearance?

A day rarely goes by that I don't close my eyes and shake my head at how ridiculous the xbox one name is.


Walmart still sells diablo 2.

Hope there is a demo to see how it transfers.

This is not the first A-RPG on 360, there's also Dungeon Siege 3, Sacred 2, the Deathspank series and Torchlight. There's probably more, I just can't remember.

Sacred 2 = first in sweden/30ish worldwide to 1000g
Tl = 100%
DS3 = 100% and sold, wank game
Deathspank 1-2 = 100% got third but it got boring.
Lord of the rings: WITN = 100%

I own most of the a-rpg´s that have the features i want, completed most.

Currently waiting for the incredible adventures of Van Helsing, while playing TL2 on PC

But hey nice tips

Nice, was gonna buy it for PS3 but I'm glad I can get it for 360 instead. I have it on PC, but the stupid always on DRM doesn't even let me log on most of the time.

@ 19 we can still hope.

From what i've read Torchlight 2 isn't on the 360 because of the limited RAM.

With the X1 using x86-64 architecture and having 5 gigs RAM dedicated to gaming i'd think they'd be keen to port it.

The original certainly sold well enough.

@20 Most of my friends stopped playing this on pc calling it a piece of shit, only reason im extremely hyped is because well 4p coop lvling and interesting loot, and the fact a-rpgs with those things are rare as fuck on the xbox.

@21 If they released torchlight 2 for the xbox in anyway it would need to have synergies to go along with it or it would just feel stale

Why do people want an almost 2 year old PC game on the Xbox One?.. To put things into more perspective, Blizzard games don't even have high requirements, I was able to play Diablo 3 beta on a 5 year old laptop. It's no way "top of the line".

I am curious about how things will play out for Diablo 3, are they going to implement Real Money Auction House or even include an Auction House?

Are they going to let players with a import their PC characters(No way I want give up my Demon Hunter with 450k DPS unbuffed or my 350k Wiz).

Are they going to launch the game with 1.0.0 or with the current update 1.0.8, if not the game is horrible let alone the exclusion of MP lvls and monster density were unbalanced.

D3 was fun at first but the end game is terrible. Not to mention the pay to win system they have with the auction house. I will not be wasting my money on this game again. Blizzard really fucked up diablo. Diablo 2 is my favorite game of all time but this is just garbage.

#23 That is interest. It is just my few friends bought and played they loved this game and they played in single-player and yes it had online problems but still enjoyed with game. Now I knew they going get Xbox 360. One of best PC games in recent years. Hopeful Blizzard fixing online problems for consoles before launch it. :)

People don't waste your time. Diablo III is a cancer to gaming. If you want a real Diablo game, play Diablo II. Diablo III killed the legacy, and I'm sorry but if you're actually that excited for this, you were probably too young to ever actually play Diablo II in its prime. That game was wondrous.

@32 check the screenshot, that's of a 4 player same-console game, you can see the skill bindings for each character listed, you wouldn't have that if any of the players were non-local.

For once I agree with the haters!!! I too bought my laptop specifically so I could play D3 at max everything... I pre-ordered Diablo III (and was on the beta) and played it a bunch from launch with my flatmate for maybe 2-3 months and not even through all the playthroughs before we got bored and gave up!!

It's not even a drop in the ocean compared to the previous ones; it's a dumbed down, hollow, years overdue ca$h-in on the Diablo name. Little to no character customisation, no player allocation of stats, skills locked to certain levels, drab character customisation, many items have EXACTLY the same skins; and as others mentioned with the auction house it was 150% pay-to-win. Even the story is mind-numbingly dumbed down and poxy compared to all of the previous ones it's almost paint-by-numbers and predictble as hell and most of the cutscenes (always a strong point in the past) are crap!

It looks like WOW (bright colours and textures - not really suitable for a game like this) and plays like... umm I dunno, but it's NOT DIABLO that's for sure!

The ONLY thing that -could- save this on 360 is the lack of auction house (if it's true) and 4-player couch co-op; but the griding for items is soooooo boring and repetitive you'll likely give up long before you ever even get to Inferno difficuty, but on the other hand the lack of an auction house also worries me a bit - there will be nothing you can do with all the 1000s of useless or unusable items you will likely come across in the endless grind... the shops give you a pittance and crafting is also dull and dumbed down from previous incarnations.

Try Torchlight 2, Path of Exile or Marvel Heroes (made by ex-D2 employees and very soon to launch) if you want a more modern game that's closer in feel to Diablo II; cos D3 is NOT it, not even close.

Im hoping since this will be on 360, that it will feel more engrossing and fun to play than on the PC. Also the Co-Op looks like itll be more fun. Othere than that it still looks really dry.
