Can't decide if I'll buy D3 or just stick to Path of Exile beta. Probably the latter (and it's not about the money), but I'll see how you guys are liking D3 after a few days. I've played D3 beta for quite a while too.

That list says Blizzard Online Store is $69, but when I go there it says $79.95 AUD. I'll pay $50/$60/$70 but not $80. Sick of being bent over just because you don't live in <developer's home country>

Apparently there's a way to get a $10 discount.... probably have to google for it.

For those wondering how to get the cheaper pricing from battlenet/blizzard

Quote:
  1. Log into https://us.battle.net/account/manage...et-a-game.html
  2. Note that the balance on the right-hand side most likely reads in AUD, as does the price of Diablo III
  3. Click Transaction History > Balance History
  4. Select US Dollars from the currency drop-down menu
  5. Click Games & Codes > Buy Digital Games
  6. Diablo III should now be listed in $90 SGD (i.e. $69 AUD)
  7. Continue ordering as per usual. The game version is Global, so you're not getting a Singaporean version here.

The fanbois defend the 'beta' we just had by asserting its 'just a server test' 'not the final product', 'why would it be any different from the 12 year old game apart from graphics' and 'man its just a beta, nothing like the full release'. However I doubt they spent too much money making a completely parallel product that looked similar to D3 but had a lot of differences from it. The game will be more complex mainly to due to higher levels having more skills and abilities, whether it makes a difference from left button, left button, left button, right button remains to be seen. The Dev video saying the game will be really hard on hard mode is a bit unconvincing, from the dawn of time computer games have been made harder merely by altering the health/damage ratio of the players to the NPCs, whether that constitutes much variance in play is doubtful. I'm sure itll sell oodles, but longevity or becoming a 'classic' remains to be seen. I'm less keen on playing it now than I was before the 'beta', perhaps just a realignment of expectations, downwards.
