- "Leah's Ring" – A Legendary ring, originally given to Leah by Deckard Cain, that's usable at level 1 and provides bonuses to Magic Find and Gold Find

The wait is finally over. Diablo III is that game. That worthy successor to Baldur's Gate: Dark alliance we had waited for (for more than half a decade mind you). From the moment you pick up the controller you can tell Blizzard nailed this port. It doesn't even feel like a port. It's like the game was designed with this control scheme in mind from scratch. Movement is fluid, combat satisfying. Everything is there. The search for better and shinier loot is just as fun as it was back in the PS2 with Baldur's. The co-op action is flawless. Minimap, skill trees, chests, weapon racks, everything you may have possibly missed is there, and then some.
If there is maybe one department where the game takes a hit vs. the PC version are the graphics. They're not bad. They do feel a bit...cartoonish. But they're totally current gen. You just can't compare the graphics of a current PC (even a mid-range one) with the graphics of a game, running in 720p on a console like the PS3, released 7 years ago, and already on it's way out. If you have never seen the PC graphics, these will look totally OK to you. Nothing to write home about but not bad by any stretch of the imagination. And my only other gripe with the game (now, this is a minor thing and I'm definitely nitpicking), is that I wish 2 players playing local co-op could enter their inventory at the same time instead of player 1 having to wait while player 2 compares 10 different kinds of armor in order to be able to enter his inventory, or at least, there should be an option to enable this. I'm rocking a 55 inch screen, there's plenty of room for both player's inventories. If a player has a small screen they could disable this option. The upside is when my wife is going through her inventory, I get to see everything she's carrying and sometimes a weapon or piece of armor catches my eye so she gives it to me and viceversa so it's not like it's super boring or anything like that. Like I said, I'm definitely nitpicking. This game is seriously awesome. I can't wait to see what Blizzard does with this game on the PS4. Even if it's just a graphics overhaul, I'll buy the PS4 version in a New York minute and play it all over again (Heck I intend to play the PS3 version all over again several times). Just take my money Blizzard. Keep releasing games like this on the console and keep taking my money. And I hope this game sells like hotcakes so publishers realize there IS a market for this genre on the consoles, and that gamers like us will buy anything you release in this genre as long as it plays this nicely.
Now, don't get me wrong, I love first person shooters as much as the next guy, but sometimes a gamer needs a break from that. No online lobbies, no 8 years olds yelling at the top of their lungs threatening to quickscope me or anything like that. Just me, my girl, the couch and the dungeons (wait, that sounded a bit kinky. But I digress). Sometimes you just want to sit on the couch with a friend, relax, and just have some fun. Sometimes, we need to get back to basics. And what a glorious playground Diablo III is for that purpose. Welcome home Lord of Destruction. What is thy bidding my master?
1) PC and console versions in graphics (to my eyes) are the same yet you don't need to get expensive hardware to run the console version. For example; console runs $200-$300 depending when you buy or bought it vs. a gaming pc minimum $800 and up after graphics card and power supply upgrades.
2) PC requires internet, console doesn't. Which basically means if your internet goes out no gaming if you want to play with friends on the PC version.
3) Load times are significantly longer on the PC vs console.
4) Multiplayer with friends is difficult for the PC version if they also don't have decked out PCs to meet the high graphics requirements vs. console you have the option to play 4 ppl at one house on one console or mix and match home and online up to 4 people.
5) PC version doesn't allow you to customize what spells/ abilities you want on each number 1-4, whereas the console allows you to do any mixing and matching once you unlock each button at certain levels.
6) PC version you have to constantly left click to move character vs. console just move the joystick. (This one my wife pointed out and I agree because less fatigue = more gaming!!)
7) Even if you don't preorder like i did and get extra legendary gear, the console versions come with the legendary helm to increase leveling by 25%. Amazing! OH and by the way if your friends or anyone else who starts a character on your console game the legendary helm is included on EACH character anyone makes ( a point that I wasn't 100% clear on when I first was starting the game). FYI the other people just need their own profile on your console and everyone is allowed up to 10 characters on a profile.
8) Both before and when you pickup items in console version it has a small box below the item to automatically compare and tell you with symbols that are easy to read if the gear you picked up is better than what you are wearing. PC doesn't do that to my knowledge.
9) No Auction house on console version. I never needed it before when playing Diablo 2 and I never used it on the PC version so I don't need it now. If you need the auction house then stick to the PC version.(Edit: Blizzard is removing Auction house from PC which happens officially in Feb. 2014, see Blizzard site for details.) I guess Blizzard realized what real Diablo fans already knew: That the whole point to a dungeon crawler is to play the game to acquire better gear not buy it.
10) My favorite, no spamming cause I can play it offline with friends for console version! I haven't tried the console online yet through the PSN but i can imagine the spammers prob found a way into there.
So to wrap it up, if you want a decent dungeon crawler with lots of replayability by all means buy the console version. I own a PS3 hence the review on this product but I imagine my points go for the XBOX 360 as well.
Ignore all the other people that are upset about blizzard in general. Blizzard does make a solid game and this is one of them. The console version for Diablo 3 rocks.
Also for anyone wondering why I own both versions its because I got the PC version included in a special deal and I didn't actually spend extra to get it. Once the console version was coming out and all these features I mentioned were in it, I decided I could finally enjoy Diablo 3 much more than on the PC.
FYI I am not a professional reviewer, I just want people who are interested in this game to get the facts and not get some whinny crappy review that doesn't help make a purchasing decision.
