Sony has inked a deal with Blizzard Entertainment -- maker of World of Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo -- to bring the last of those titles onto the PlayStation platform.

The two companies today announced a strategic partnership that will bring dungeon crawler Diablo 3 to both Sony's PlayStation 3 and the upcoming PlayStation 4.

On-stage in New York during the PS4's unveiling today, Chris Metzen, Blizzard's senior vice president of story and franchise development said the company already had Diablo 3 running on the PS3 and that it was "amazing," though he did not give an indication of how it was doing on the beefier PS4.

Diablo 3, which was released last May, is currently available only on Microsoft's Windows and Apple's OS X platforms.

Blizzard joins other third-party developers including Ubisoft and Bungie in offering its upcoming games on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Sony did not provide specifics on pricing and availability of those titles.
