A lot of questions have been raised since the announcement of Blizzard Entertainment taking it's hack-n-slash title "Diablo 3" to the console world, and Blizzard is answering as many questions from fans and press as they can.
While we think cross-platform play would be awesome, there are currently no plans to allow connectivity between PlayStation Network and Battle.net (this is pretty standard for most games that have PC and console support). As a result, the characters on your Battle.net account and PlayStation account will also remain separate.
Although some of the features that Blizzard has come as a plus for the console version of "Diablo 3" (offline mode and no split-screen), this feature will leave players of the PC version feeling that the time they have spent on their characters for the PC version will not be reflected on the console version if they chose to purchase the game. This isn't something that is impossible either because when Valve released "Portal 2" in April 2012 players who bought the game for Playstation 3 not only got a PC copy for free, but where able to play co-op with players on the PC side through Steam. Blizzard might be able to do the same with their Battle.net system but as mentioned above they intend on keeping the environments separate for the time being.
Blizzard will be showing off a demo of the game at PAX East 2013 in Boston, MA on Friday, Mar. 22 through Sunday Mar. 24, 2013, which I will be attending, so I will reserve judgment until I get my hands on the game.
