    Apple never appear to ďlikeĒ or fully embrace games (despite them making the majority of App Store money off them), a cast off from Jobs era it seems. However, they like money more than theyíre indifferent to games, so it still never ceases to amaze me they donít release an exorbitantly priced, inevitably white, default game controller. Itíd likely be awful of course, only 1 button and lots of naff swiping and waving about, but still.

    Until a default exists, or Dual Shock/Xbox pad support, all those 3rd party controllers ainít worth shit.

    Canít remember much about the Pippins controller, but Iím sure it would be better than touch screen for action oriented games.

    Why would Apple/Gogle push a dedicated controller? Most of the appeal of mobile games is the extreme portability - after all, even more than a Switch, your phone is something that you'll always have with you. If you gotta carry around a controller, that appeal is lost.

    Never hjeard of that, just took a quick look - doesn't look like Diablo at all, seems to be more of a WoW clone?
    Which is also made by netease and Reddit are claiming that diablo is just a reskin of Crusaders of Light

    @gamecat Yeah polygon need to correct it cos the first few comments state CoL is the WoW clone and EoG is the Diablo clone

    @yegon Have you ever seen kids/teenagers play with a smartphone? Genuine question. My nephews (16 and 18) would think youíre a crazy old man if you suggested using a controller.

    Not surprised at the OTT reaction. Blizzard fans are cunts, tbh. I'm a fan of WoW but avoid the official forums, MMO Champions forums and don't watch any streams as I can't stand the wider, entitled player base.

    Blizzard fans are worse than Star Wars fan, and that's saying something.

    Fair points re controller, but itís laughable when Apple talk about power equivalent to an Xbox One S, show NBA whatever...and then itíll be controlled by swipes and taps.

    See loads of kids swiping and tapping away on the train, as mystifying as it is to us old farts, theyíre like demons typing on a tablet and would laugh at hw keyboards. But Iím sure they go home and play on their PS4 etc with their mates when they get home.

    All that power is largely for nothing gamewise without a controller. Itís not as if all devs would target the controller, theyíd chase the freemium money, but enough would.

    Not that I care, stopped mobile gaming ages ago when I realised I was buying games and never actually playing them. Iím bad enough at that on the PC ffs.

    Oh god, all those onscreen buttons. Terrible.

    I remember trying the odd touch screen Diablo clone in the past, lack of tactile feedback makes for a miserable experience.

    /goes back happily to Switch D3

    What baffles me as well is that they announce this as finally a mobile diablo when, they JUST released it on Switch? They really should have just announced this quietly and just confirmed what is in the pipeline.

    So glad that I live in a world where Diablo in mobile is one of the worst things happening right now.

    Really? Have you met Blizzard? They have at least another 10 years of milking diablo 3 to get on with before you're getting a whiff of anything else.

    Tragically, I wouldnít sniff at more D3.

    I may be part of the problem, hmm.

    It's not like they couldn't make another expansion, maybe one with a bit more content than Rise of the Necromancer.

    But maybe they've seen the numbers and noticed that not many people play D3 anymore? Otherwise, I'm sure it would be way more supported than it is.

    I'm not sure why they didn't design a live service for Diablo 3. Hell it could even be supported with non pay to win micro transactions and i'd be happy enough. I know seasons are a little like this but from what I can tell its pretty much modifiers.

    @SiroccoJetProp They are entitled though, they paid to be there, to hear and be a part of the reveal of big news. A mobile game is not big news.

    Well if it wasn't for Archer I wouldn't have a clue what this is.
