Jay Wilson Greets Korea

Blizzard Korea has released a short youtube clip of DiabloWikiJay Wilson talking vaguely about Diablo 3’s DiabloWikirelease date and greeting Korea as we progress into the new year.

I know some have already posted about Jay’s Korean segment at the end, and that really does show some dedication for their reach-out to their foreign markets. Similarly, people have also noted that we can add “close” to our Lexicon of Patience. Realistically, this small clip should not be considered a sign of release, as it presents no clear verbiage of how close we actually are to finally playing the game.

With this new piece, is this fueling the conspiracies that the Korean rating debacle was the paramount reason for the delay? Or is this just more PR to help butter them up for their eventual addition of the DiabloWikiRMAH later on down the road?

    1. i think this video proves that we were wrong about everything and that announcement of the release date is near so we should all stop complaining. the man clearly says the game will be out this year.

      Now, move along. Nothing to see here.

    2. It’s probably just letting SK fans know that Blizzard hasn’t forgotten about them during the entire RMAH fiasco. Note how they only did this for South Korea.

      Seriously though, that’s a little embarrassing man.

    4. korea is a huge foreign market for blizzard. not surprising to see blizz trying to hype them up a little.

        • I thought it was okay this time. If it were trimmed, tidied up it could look pretty sharp. It’s a bit 70’s.  Not like Chris Metzen’s though, that’s got a sinister vibe to it.

    5. but his next post  in 3/6 months will be”Nearing was to Nearing” … we are shooting for Q1 2013 guys!

    6. how often should i check my bnet acc for betakey?? do they come in waves so i dont need to chek every day?? thx in advance

      • They do, yes. Waves. If your account doesn’t have d3 on it now I’d stop looking until wave 5 has been confirmed.

    7. It means Happy New Year in Korean. New year in lunar calendar starts next week, they have lunar new year holiday in South Korea.
