This is for the PC version, but I wonder how the PS3 version will be designed. Will it even connect to Battle.net at all?

We will find out in 20 years when Blizzard finishes it.

Not a for sure, but it's likely.

Hell, we might end up getting a better version. Offline singleplayer and no real money auction hall since Sony or Microsoft most likely will not go for that.

Online only? Seriously? I guess they want to cut out on pirates, but still stupid.

im sure it would not be online for consoles if the rumors true

in my country piracy is serious yet most people buy ps3 for original and xbox 360 for pirates,and i think its harder to pirate on ps3 compared to pc,imo,dont flame me for this

How is a real money auction bad? Especially since they have another auction hall with only in game items used for trading.

More options does not equal bad.

For me it's just a personal thing that I don't like in games. I'm a long-time MMO player and I tend to stray away from that sort of thing.

If you like it, more power to you.
