Pre-order Diablo 3 for PS3 and get an exclusive in-game Infernal Helm
Blizzard and participating retailers made available today the ability to pre-order Diablo 3 for PlayStation 3. While the console port isn't set to actually release until later this year, anxious gamers can pre-order the game and earn an exclusive in-game item at the same time.
By pre-order the PS3 version of Diablo 3, you can unlock the Infernal Helm, which grants an experience point boost to any character who wears it. Certain retailers are also offering limited-edition pre-order bonuses, but Blizzard suggests you check with your local retailer for further information.
Diablo 3 has been "custom-tailored" for PS3 and includes updates to the game's boss battles, an all-new interface, and a dynamic camera perspective. It will allow for four player same-screen local cooperative gameplay, online play on PSN, or any combination of the two.
"We've poured blood, sweat, and hellfire into creating an epic Diablo 3 experience for PlayStation gamers," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment. "In addition to including all the improvements from the PC version over the past year, we've made several updates to Diablo 3 for play on the PS3. We got a ton of positive feedback from players who tried the game at PAX East, and we can't wait to get it into everyone's hands later this year."
Diablo 3 was originally released for Windows and Mac on May 15, 2012 and within 24 hours became the fastest-selling PC game of all time. As of December 31, 2012, the game had sold more than 12 million copies worldwide.
