During Sony's PlayStation conference tonight an announcement came that Blizzard has been hinting at for quite a while. Diablo 3 is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.

The port will be based off of the PC version including recent upgrades, including Paragon levelling, new legendary weapons and brawling. Blizzard has gone to great lengths to ensure that the UI and control interface will suit the DualShock setup.

Blizzard's Chris Metzen revealed that Diablo 3 will feature couch co-op without split-screen, and that more details – as well as a playable demo – will be revealed during PAX East in March. "Diablo 3 has never been easier to play," Metzen said.

Diablo 3 was released last year for Windows and Mac, following in the footsteps of previous Blizzard titles like Diablo 2, World of Warcraft and Stacraft 2. But as Metzen pointed out, Blizzard got its start developing console games, and he said the developer is excited to begin branching out beyond the PC again with Diablo 3 for PlayStation 4 and PS3.

He did not reveal any concrete release details, but said that the console version of Diablo 3 will appear again "in the coming months."

Developers ranging from LittleBigPlanet creators Media Molecule to the studios behind Killzone and Infamous, and even indie developer Jonathan Blow, took the stage in New York on Wednesday evening to discuss upcoming PS4 games. The titles revealed include Killzone: Shadow Fall, Infamous: Second Son, Drive Club and Knack.

Bungie was on hand to talk more about Destiny, the Halo successor revealed last week, as well as other developers talking about new and upcoming projects.
