Do you think Blizzard will ever release Diablo 1 as a PSOne Classic?

Yeah yeah I KNOW it's the inferior port and everything (actually, it was the first version of the game i've ever seen AND played), but i'm just curious because Diablo III is getting released in less than 3 weeks...

Nope. Blizzard barely even likes consoles.

Huh? They're releasing D3 on THREE consoles and their first games were on SNES, Genesis and Amiga.

That's why I said barely.

hopefully they will, while they're at it, release the Warcraft 2 (PS1) as well.

PS1 Diablo 1 is AWESOME and even has some options the original didn't have out of the box, like faster movement speed (yea no sprinting but still awesome) and local 2p co-op.

Would definitely buy PS1 Diablo 1. I would even buy it for my friends!!!!

Diablo 1 is one of the GREATEST videogames and stories of ALL TIME!!

Spoilers, here's a recent social co-op session from fans on PC

Would have been nice if they included the original game with Diablo III PS3's release, kind of like how the original Doom 1 and 2 are included with Doom 3.

Blizzard doesn't have much interest in digital distribution or giving other companies a cut of their games.
