Diablo 3 – Most Popular Booth

Lovely Queues

After around four hours sleep I made it onto the public show floor this morning. The general public were not allowed in today so it was just press and business folk.

Anyway, I thought I would check out the public areas first thing this morning to see what was going to be open to the public, and even though it was press and industry types only, by 10AM the Diablo booth had a queue around the block! I went off to see how it compared to other big releases like Battlefield 3 and I can safely say that the Diablo 3 booth was the most poopular by far.

Tomorrow is going to be a nightmare at the Diablo booth, if the queue was around the block today, add a few more thousand people into the mix and that line is going to be very long indeed. The space allocated to Diablo 3 is by no means enough for what it’s going to require.

  1. not enough time in the day to play all the games i want to play! i love bad company 2 and play the hell out of it now. I’ll have to choose 1 game though to fit into my schedule, and i know it’s gonna be D3 =D

    hopefully that line isn’t full of the smellies

  2. I am going to be there tomorrow and i will run in at 10 am and go straight to the booth, that is the best chance you can get. Last time they had a sign that said “4 hour wait – dont queue anymore” 🙁

  3. Diablo is always a show-stopper, because it’s so poopular. 😀
    Best typo ever?

  4. for being a german show, this line does not look uber efficient.

  5. How does it compare to DotA 2 booth? I’m waiting for DotA 2 at least as eagerly as for D3.

  6. No way Diablo 3 booth can be the most popular. Because DotA 2 is unveiled there and an international DotA 2 championship’s going on. Valve stated that prize for the tourney is $1.6m.(the highest prize in the video game history)

  7. DOTA 2 was not that busy.

  8. Perhaps you guys are forgetting that dota is a joke.

  9. *flashbacks to theater lineup for Dark Knight first AND second time around*

  10. Ehm, you should also mention Diablo III got the award for best PC game on the show.

  11. I hope the D3 release is so huge, Bobby drops a gold brick in his shorts and immediately (and without consulting with anyone) announces the development of a Diablo MMO. 😀
