Default Diablo 3

Not sure if there is a rumours thread for this yet, however, I figured I'd start one with some new info I have. My uncle received a beta copy of D3 from one of his clients. This beta is different from the one you could play at Blizzcon, with more options in character customization, more levels, etc.

The beta was on a USB drive when he got it, and apparently it is not for computers. He couldn't get it to burn to a disc yet, but I guess from what his client said, Blizzard plans to release the game for consoles (XBox I think) first before releasing it for the computer. Though, they may release them both at the same time, but either way, I found that a bit interesting, and it may be cool for those that prefer consoles over computers, or do not always have access to a computer. The game moving towards consoles is most likely a confirmed rumour, with no bias on my part as I dislike consoles and prefer the computer. I will be pretty pissed if it comes out for Xbox first, making me wait to play it till it comes out for computers.

Anyone else hear anything?

EDIT: Noticed another thread on D3 about the gameplay and whether it will be better than Diablo 2. Note that this is a RUMOURS thread, not a thread based on opinions of the game (I don't want to steal the other persons thread)

Maybe a mod could change the name to Diablo 3 Rumours Roundup - I'd appreciate it

Havent heard anything about D3 being released for X-Box, though they were hiring console devs as early as 2008. While I could see a simultanious release I dont think Blizzard would shaft it's core customers(PC) by releasing an console version first.

Yeah I sure as hell hope not, but they would make a fortune by cutting a deal with microsoft to get it released fo XBox, I know a ton of people who prefer console games, hardly ever playing anything on a computer. Still no relase date though, I wish we could get a ball park estimate as to a date of release, but then every other time they've ball parked it, they've pushed the date back. From what I hear, a lot of the d2 fans re just loosing interest in the release of D3 and moving on to other games.

Any news on whether a monthly fee will be charged to play, like with WoW? That would be a bitch as well

I highly doubt it for console. Way too many keys and click-click-click for an xbox controller.
