In a posting on their website, Blizzard announced that they’re looking for a PS3 specialist to be a “key contributor” on the Diablo team. Oh whatever could that mean?
Obviously, you can’t help but think this: Diablo III on the PS3. At least the PS3 – maybe they’re experts on the Xbox 360, so they’ve got that all taken care of. Or maybe they’ll take a cue from Valve, and put more of their effort into the PS3 with Sony being more open about those kinds of things. Or maybe they’re looking for somebody to help them on “Diablo Babyz”, the hot new spin-off Diablo title for PS3!
Whatever it may be, here’s the posting:
