Diablo 3 demo hits Xbox 360 and PS3

Whether you're new to Diablo altogether or just curious about how it plays on a controller, Blizzard yesterday released a Diablo III demo for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 following its console launch last week. Like the PC demo, it offers a chunk of the first act, up to the Skeleton King boss battle.

The 1.28GB Xbox 360 demo is over here, initially exclusive to Xbox Live Gold members, while the PS3 demo is this-a-way.

Blizzard notes that the demo does support online co-op for parties, but matchmaking is disabled. Characters are capped at level 9, and you can carry over them into the full game.

Our Diablo newbie Steve enjoyed the experience playing on console; what do you make of it?
