Diablo 3 Pre-Order Incentives detailed for consoles

September is fast approaching and so is the console release date for Diablo 3.

Now we know what pre-order incentives will be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3 owners who choose to buy it.

Interestingly, PS3 owners will get a lot more content than their Xbox 360 bretheren.

Let’s break it down for you…

All preorders of the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Diablo® III will include the following items.

  • “Infernal Helm”– Wearable at level 1, the console-exclusive Infernal Helm in-game item confers a +EXP bonus to help you whip your new PlayStation or Xbox characters into shape
  • “Angelic Wings”– Taunt the forces of the Burning Hells by sprouting a cosmetic pair of glowing angel wings
  • “Bottled Cloud Dye”– Dye your armor sets a cloudy white with this heavenly dye
  • “Bottled Smoke Dye” – Dye your armor sets an eerie smoky black with this sinister dye

Meanwhile, PS3 owners will get five additional exclusive items that will remind players of classic Playstation titles…

  • “The Hero’s Journey” – A Legendary shoulder item that includes a “Journey” style scarf
  • “Drake’s Amulet” – A Legendary amulet that bears a striking resemblance to the ring that Drake wears around his neck in Uncharted
  • “Leoric’s Gauntlets” – These Legendary gloves summon a ghostly skeleton to fight for you
  • “Crimson Angelic Wings” – This cosmetic enhancement calls forth a set of red Angelic Wings
  • “Leah’s Ring” – A Legendary ring, originally given to Leah by Deckard Cain, that’s usable at level 60 and provides bonuses to Magic Find, Gold Find, movement speed, and defenses
