The press conference with game director Jay Wilson makes a 30-minute question session with the Blizzard staff. This will be used, for more information.
Bashiok’s been teasing about a Diablo 3 demo at Gamescom for a few weeks. It seemed like bad news yesterday when he implied that we’d have to wait for BlizzCon to find out about the Wizard’s new resource system.
