The console version comes with custom tailored for the new platforms. We can look forward to gamepad-driven action, with a dynamic camera perspective which puts your hero in the front and center.

Either you can cooperate via split-screen or online over PSN or Xbox Live. Parties can be found both locally but also online.
Pre-order any of the console versions will grant you a bonus: the Infernal Helm, which grants an experience point boost to any character who wears it, accelerating their progression as they rise in power. Certain retailers will also offer limited-edition preorder bonuses—check with your local retailer for further information.
“Playing Diablo III on a big screen with your friends brings a whole new level of intensity to the game, and with all of the control and interface adaptations we’ve made, it’s extremely fun to play on PS3™ and Xbox 360,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “In addition to the fine-tuning we’ve done for the console versions, we’re also including major content and design updates we’ve made to the PC version over the past year, so players can expect an epic Diablo gaming experience when the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions launch in September.”
The retail edition of Minecraft for Xbox 360 has been delayed.
Major Nelson reports that the reason for the delay is so the latest content can be included on the disc. However, the delay has set the release back until June 4th, for North America. It was not stated if this would impact the release in Australia, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Singapore and Taiwan.
The disc-based version of the game will allow players to experience the game without having to connect to Xbox Live. The retail edition will come with all of the current updates and features, along with the future ninth title update.
There won’t be any difference between the digital and retail edition in terms of updating the game or multiplayer connectivity.
A release is expected to happen on April 30th in North America. It will cost $19.99. In addition to the North American release, the game will also be released to Australia, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Singapore, and Taiwan in early June.
Nintendo World reports the Wii U version will feature an exclusive co-op mode called co-op driver. The mode enables one player to drive, while the other one assists with the map. Included in this version is also the Ultimate Speed Pack DLC.
