I do have a PC and a console, and I'm grabbing Diablo 3.
I'm not really interested in Max Payne 3, although I loved the first two. I also haven't kept up with news on it, so I may be completely off here, but it seems so unlike the previous games in tone and setting that it's only Max Payne in name.
EXTREMELY hard choice. Both childhood-teenage years favorites, and nostalgia. I would have to choose Diablo 3, just because getting in on the ground floor of the multiplayer scene.
I remember D2 just got insane with trading, and knowing the perfect armor and weapon combo for each class. And who could forget the SOJ madness.
Max Payne 3 is a great single player game. Both previous games wrapped up the story quite well, IMO. I think I'll buy that at a later date.
I really hope the auction house in D3 is the ONLY way to trade.... I made a ton of great friends with whom I traded with. If they needed stuff and I happened to find it, hey here ya go. And vise versa. There was no trying to haggle or cheat each other. Those type of people ruined the game.

That question has been lingering in my brain for quite sometime.
My money right now is on Max Payne 3 as I know from some sources who managed to test it that the game is going to be something else. Diablo 3 however can wait as this is the first entry of a series that I never had a chance to play.
I'm only going to play Max Payne 3 on the PC anyways so I'd have to wait for it, and even then I'm gonna wait for it to come down in price. As for Diablo 3, I have friends that are going to play it so I'll probably pick it up on the 15th.
It really depends on how well max payne 3 delivers. If its just kind of ok I feel I can wait on it until a price drop although I am a big max payne fan. As for diablo I am still undecided. If I can wait a month or 2 torchlight 2 should be out which is more appealing to me for a variety of reasons and cheaper as well. I can play drakensang online or path of exile in the meantime.
I also kind of want to pick up binary domain on pc when it comes out april 27th.
For all of the people that wanted to know what diablo 3 plays like (at least the first hour and change)... this was just announced by blizzard.
We’re pleased to announce the Diablo III open beta weekend, which offers open access to all players with a valid Battle.net account! Beginning this Friday everyone is invited to log in and help us put the game and servers through their paces in this three day stress test as we march toward the game’s release on May 15. You can begin downloading the Diablo III client right now!

Max Payne isn't coming out until the end of the month on PC and I already have D3 pre-ordered on Amazon, so D3, but I'm definitely getting Max Payne 3. It really comes down to how Rockstar ports MP3 to PC, if it's a bad port I'll just get it on 360 so I can play with friends.
