Diablo III News: Say Goodbye to the Auction House, Hello to Loot 2.0

Diablo III

Blizzard Entertainment has originally launched Diablo III on Mac OS X and Windows PC with the ability to sell your loot to other players for the first time in their real world auction house. Now that feature is soon to be removed. As they have come to the decision of how to go about it, they have decided to announce some news with the community about how this will be done. For those wondering why? Blizzard feels the Auction House “undermines the ‘core’ gameplay” and although they view it as originally a good idea the developer just doesn’t like how it has turned out.

The following quotes come from Diablo III’s Production Director who announced on Battle.net today that the game’s auction house would be removed Early 2014.

“We feel that this move along with the Loot 2.0 system being developed concurrently with Reaper of Souls™ will result in a much more rewarding game experience for our players.

We’re working out the details of how the auction house system will be shut down, but we wanted to share the news as soon as we made the decision in order to give everyone as much advance notice as possible. Please note that the shutdown will occur on March 18, 2014. We will keep everyone informed as we work through this process.”

Diablo 3 Lead Designer Speaks on PS4 Offline Diablo 3 Story Mode and Next Gen Xbox 720

Many may remember that the release of the heavily anticipated Blizzard title Diablo III was one of the select groups of game titles that have recently begun the resurgence of DRM. Diablo III can be downloaded and installed infinite times and obtained for free in its entirety, however the game cannot work without an active “Always-Online” connection to the the Internet and Battle.net’s servers. If you cannot log in with an account that owns a license key to the game, you can’t play it (even in story mode). This means there is no offline play at all.

The next generation Xbox 720 is rumored to be considering this functionality, though no official statement has been made thus far by Microsoft in response to this scenario it is expected to be revealed next month.

Diablo III was shown at the PlayStation 4 Reveal Event hosted by Sony during which Blizzard announced that the game will be released on the Sony consoles PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Here is a quote from the Lead Designer of the game who speaks about the ability to play D3’s Story Mode Offline with the PS3 and PS4:

“What really motivated that was, when we started talking about doing our own research in terms of the eco systems between PC and console, and when we talked to Sony, there is a significant amount of consoles that are not connected to the internet. Because of that we felt the best way to bring the Diablo experience to all the console players was to offer an offline mode.”

He continued: “A lot of console players will move the console around from the living room to the bedroom and theyre not always connected, so we felt it was important for them to be able to play on their couch and have fun.”

Fact or Fiction: Xbox 720 to Come in Two Versions, Always-Online, Mandatory Installs

Major media outlets has been deploying Xbox 720 rumors left and right in such succession that our heads just stopped spinning long enough for us to get a bearing on gravity again. These are some of the latest things being said about the Xbox 720. Until Microsoft reveals its console make sure to take all of this as Rumor. Microsoft’s next console, which is expected this April, or at the latest E3 2013, may end up arriving in stores through two completely different hardware offerings.

The first a media-centric, Windows 8-based affordable console that will not play AAA Xbox 720 next gen titles but will play “downloadable content”. Think Kinect Sports, Angry Birds, Madden, Call of Duty, presumably maxing out somewhere around Xbox 360 quality horsepower. This device will also attempt to compete with your cable provider by becoming a “set top box” and showcasing Microsoft’s plans for TV services including business partners like HBO (this TV service was originally in development for Xbox 360 but was later delayed).

The second version of the Xbox 720 will of course be expected to compete with the PlayStation 4 in terms of raw power for next generation titles pushing the outer limits of what is possible with High Definition and 3D HD gaming respectively. Unfortunately the rumors don’t stop there. Xbox 720 is also expected to required all games to be installed to the hard drive and will not run off the disc.

This will render the disc useless in regards to used games sales. Similar to Blizzard’s Battle.net login system the games will need an active online license attached to your account to play the games. This means that you can distribute the data of the game on discs and it will not work unless you’ve bought the game directly from Microsoft’s online service or their official sales partners (if any).
