They won't just be pretty, they'll hopefully be easier to make if nvidia has it's way.

Blizzard wont release SC2 to Console if they cant get the control system just like on the PC. They don't like to release halfassed ports/broken games, and i really don't think they will waste there time on it either.

SC2/D3 is gonna be massive!.

I wish all developers were more like Blizzard. They have always released quality games and there support for multiplayer has been very solid. If only there was a Blizcon in AUS

Yes because I forgot, they never released Warcraft 2 and Diablo on the Playstation or Starcraft on the N64... They never release ports that aren't optimal...

The Blizzard from back then is also different from the one now, back then they were smaller and weren't controlled by Activision's money hungry CEO. If it will bring money it will be released on console. Sorry to burst your bubble but I am willing to bet that Starcraft and/or Diablo 3 will see a release on consoles.

I think he was referencing a recent comment from someone in Blizzard that they know those ports were terrible, and they will only port SC2 and D3 if they can come up with a proper control method.

Honestly Blizz games are so scalable they could probably port them to the Wii, which would somewhat adequately mimic mouse control, especially for Diablo. They probably fear the audience isn't there though. Still, Diablo should be easy on the Xbox, just work it like Marvel Ultimate Alliance or Baldur's Gate console versions. It's Starcraft 2 I bet they never port.

If i remember correctly they reffered to Halo Wars as an example of y they dont want to port it to consoles (For now).

When it comes to release games Blizzard always want there games to be top quality, i mean look at it...they have Starcarft/Diablo/Warcraft...and look how well they are doing, and i am a multiplayer freak, and they have always done a top notch on this.
