At the nextbox's event it'll be announced after it's coming to 360/720.

Or maybe just 720 otherwise surely they would have announced for 360?

Having thoroughly p**sed over their PC community, the consoles are probably the future of the series if it has 1.

"We really felt that playing offline, and being able to move your console from the living room to your bedroom, which a lot of players do to play, is really important," said Mosqueira.

So how about making PC have offline play, laptops are just as if not more movable than a PS3 as they have their own screen. :roll:
What you need to remember is that there's what people want to hear, there's what people want to believe, there's everything else, THEN there's the truth!

But once it is plugged back in in the bedroom surely you would reconnect the internets? You are switching the console off and moving it, to a different room, most people who do this regularly will have either wireless or a connection to use when in their room. this is an awful example of why they need no perm internet and if consoles can have it why can't PC? Discrimination, they should get in trouble for this but for some reason it is seen as ok to do.

Worst part of the PS4 reveal with Destiny a close second. Why announce something that everyone knows is going to your closest rival.

because then everyone will know that both machines have it and can take it out of the pro-con grid for making a buying decision.

Of course it will come to nextbox and 360.
They probably aren't allowed to say so because all the developers and publishers are under an NDA. When it is announced officially, they'll confirm it. They would be mad not to.

WiiU version? knowing the speed Blizzard take to develop games. They'll spend an extra year developing features for the touch screen. :P

Because one is a massively successful, if rightfully derided,title and the other is a huge event in gaming. Sony are absolutely right to beat their chest about both of these, especially since Bungie's past could suggest that Destiny would be a MS exclusive.

If you think anyone was sat during the PS4 reveal hoping for a Diablo3 announcement then you're deluding yourself.

Well, I found it a more interesting announcement than the "share" button at least and I'm sure there's some people who want to try it out who don't have the PC to run it (the offline mode could even tempt those who have played it on the PC). So maybe no one was hoping for it, waving their little Blizzard flag in anticipation, but I don't think it was unwelcome news.

I'm still not entirely sure what point your trying to make, is awareness of new titles a bad thing all of a sudden?

The point you're missing is that they announced Diablo 3 at the PS4 reveal event. Not at E3 or TGS, at the PS4 reveal event.

If it was exclusive that would be something but everyone knows it isn't.
