Diablo 3 on PS3 will support menu-driven item trading, but no auction house

New, 14 comments

When Diablo 3 comes to the PlayStation 3 it won't include an online auction house, but there will be a system in place to help players trade items with one another in both the online and offline modes, a Blizzard official tells Polygon.

"Players can trade (whether offline or online) using an in-game menu," a spokesperson told Polygon. "They just need to be playing in the same game. We should have more details soon."

The computer version of Diablo 3 features an in-game, real-money auction house where players can buy and sell items discovered in the game.

Diablo 3 will feature online and offline four-player cooperative play when it comes to the console. It also features tweaks to the way enemies attack and behave. The changes were designed to help augment the change in rhythm that comes from playing the game with a PS3 controller rather than a mouse and keyboard.

The spokesperson said that there are currently no plans to add gamepad support for the computer version of Diablo 3.

Neither a release date nor a price has yet been set for the Playstation 3 version of Diablo 3. A version of the game is also coming to the PS4, but Blizzard officials declined to say if it will be coming to any other consoles.
