Diablo III on PlayStation 3 and 4 won’t allow cross play with PC, but it also looks like it won’t require an Internet connection.

“While we think cross-platform play would be awesome, there are currently no plans to allow connectivity between PlayStation Network and Battle.net,” said Diablo III community manager Vaeflare.

“As a result, the characters on your Battle.net account and PlayStation account will also remain separate.

There were also no plans for analogue controller support for PC anytime soon, said Vaeflare.

“Similarly, since Diablo III for console was designed with a controller in mind, the PlayStation version of Diablo III will not support USB mice or keyboards.”

In an interview with GameTrailers yesterday, Sony's John Hight said that four player local co-op on the console versions would be possible.

He appeared to be about to add that an Internet connection wouldn’t be required when he was cut off by the interviewer.

"No split-screen, we just zoom the camera out. Or, you know, if you're offline..."

Blizzard said it intends to have Diablo III up and running on PlayStation 3 at PAX East at the end of March.
