Preload and buy cheapest key on release day... Why would you do anything else?
Has anyone bought digital copies off game-lane before? How prompt are they with emailing the cd-key? I would like to be able to play the moment it's released
Titles like this I really don't give a shit for pay $20 from blizzy...
So many stingeballs. Its d3 dudes.
You can preload before purchasing?
damn servers are under maintenance. good i guess gets the kinks out before release is always nice.
Yeah - http://us.media.battle.net.edgesuit...Diablo-III-8370-enUS-Installer-downloader.exe
As lame as it sounds I'd kind of prefer having the box to add to the collection. Maybe I am just living in the past... But yeah, long term Diablo fan in general.
Bu I am not sure how I am going to balance SC2 and D3 gameplay, if HoTS comes out soon I am screwed :tongue:
I'm with this guy. I pre-ordered mine from JB, but CE.
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

Thanks for that, just bought with this tip! Now the painful 20 day wait argh.
when you buy 3 copies 45-50 vs 80 a copy really starts to add up
currently downloading D3 installer @ 2.4 mb a sec love the fact that Blizzard is doing online dist via torrent. now i just need it to get to my full speed of 7mb a sec
Whats the go, I can get 10MB/s from usenet but even with the blizzard torrent i'm only getting 300-400KB/s
JB Hifi online has CE available for preorder again.
So tempting.. $137
So did this beta open several weeks before final release? I think not. Blizzards WoW beta is completely different thant Blizzards Diablo3 'beta'. 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.
