Diablo 3 for consoles still possible

Blizzard confirms that they are looking at it
CEO Mike Morhaime from Blizzard confirmed that they are still investigating and looking at the possibilities of bringing Diablo 3 to console systems. He is quoted as saying, “I think you could make an argument that a game like Diablo might play very well on a console.”

While we have had sources confirm to us previously that Blizzard was looking at the possible options of bringing Diablo 3 to the console market, Blizzard continues to be one developer that prefers the Windows and Mac market space due to the range of possibilities with these platforms. You don’t have those options with consoles.

One of the major concerns about bringing a Blizzard title to the console market is the release of patches and upgrades, as well as things such as expansion packs. Morhaime confirmed that Diablo might be the most fitting for a console release of all of the Blizzard titles.

Still, if a console version of Diablo 3 does arrive, don’t expect to see it released at the same time as the PC and Mac versions. The exploration of the possibilities of a Diablo title for the console market has no impact on the release of the PC and Mac versions, so it is a safe bet that it will arrive later; we believe it will be a lot later and will be different from the PC and Mac release of Diablo 3.
