On September 3, evil will be reborn on console systems throughout the world with the release of DiabloÂ® III on the PlayStationâ„˘ 3 and Xbox 360Â® games and entertainment system from Microsoft. That's right, Diablo III will be unleashing hell on both Xbox 360 and PS3â„˘ before summer's end, so lock in your preorders with your local retailer soon.
As an added bonus, all preorders of the Xbox 360 and PS3â„˘ versions of Diablo III will include the exclusive Infernal Helm (in-game item only. . .though we have to admit it'd look pretty sharp IRL). Wearable at level 1, the Infernal Helm confers a +EXP bonus to help you whip your new PlayStationâ„˘ or XboxÂ® characters into shape. Plus, it looks sweet as hell on all five mortal heroes of Sanctuaryâ€”be it the Witch Doctor, Barbarian, Wizard, Demon Hunter, or Monk. Keep in mind that the redeemable key for the Infernal Helm, which you will find in your preordered console copy of Diablo III on launch day, requires an Internet connection to be redeemed and cannot be transferred across platforms.
Be sure to get your preorder lined up for the PS3â„˘ or Xbox 360 versions of the game and prepare your thumbs to do battle against the sinister forces of the Burning Hells.
Please note that as the Xbox 360 version of Diablo III was announced today, it may take retailers several days to set up their product pages for this new version of the game. Be sure to check back if you donâ€™t see Diablo III for Xbox 360 listed on retailers' websites.
