    Official Release date, with proof (NO JOKE)

    As the tittle says... I *MAY* Have found something that noone has... that is the "possible release date" March, 1st of 2011. And here is my proof...

    go to walmart.com search diablo in the entire site, and it says pre-order now for $59.99 and the approximate shipping date will be 03/01/11

    Here is the screenshot to prove it

    Walmart isn't the leading expert on video games. Previous stores that do specialize on them have tried this on dates already past. It's an incentive to pre-order ASAP.

    Re: Official Release date, with proof (NO JOKE)

    Stores sometimes put release dates for the pre-orders. Sometimes just because they want to add all games that they intend to sell in the system and the system needs a release date - that's only because of their internal sales projections, strategies of pricing and to keep the system ready and up-to-date for all that. Well, that's what I've been told on the internetz. =P

    BUT... only 1 post... maybe having some fun, huh?

    Re: Official Release date, with proof (NO JOKE)

    Seriously when are we going to be able to just buy the cdkey online directly from the Blizzard store? I'm tired of having to stop by some dumb retailer and wait in a line of annoying nerds just to pick up a box with a number in it.

    FFS you already have an incredible software distribution suite experience with the WoW, SC2 and amazing battle.net classic game downloaders, just send me an email with the cdkey & my receipt and let me download it while I'm at work so that it will be ready when I get home.

    It's possible that they did this for SC2 and I missed it. Can someone confirm/deny?

    It's crazy how they hyped it up so much and keep delaying it, you know they were going to delay it all along

    servers would be begging for mercy if everyone downloaded D3 at the same time. a pre download would be cool so the day it launches you just get emailed your cd key and suddenly you are playing but we all know that would get hacked like crazy so that wont be happening lol


    D3 has not been delayed at all yet. they have not really even hyped it. they show it at game conventions and answer questions about it but there are no commercials or anything like that punching you in the face with D3. if you know anything about D3 right now it is cause you went looking for the info

    Well, they did that with SC2. At least something like that.

    Re: Official Release date, with proof (NO JOKE)

    All games that support single player get hacked eventually. As long as the battlenet account w/cd key is required for multiplayer, no one's experience will be effected at all by it. It's one of the primary reason, IMO, that LAN play is no longer supported. Unfortunate, but irrelevant to those of us who purchase our games.

    The process would be quite simple:

    1) Create D3 downloader.
    2) Lock single player in D3 downloaded version.
    3) Setup D3 cdkey purchase online.
    4) Send unique cdkeys to all online purchasers at midnight of release date. Make a first time BNET login unlock single player.

    Boom, done.

    what i meant by hacked it, if people can predownload the game they will figure out a way to play it without the cd key

    They didn't with SC2, so... No. D3 is getting a preload.

    Re: Official Release date, with proof (NO JOKE)

    One of the reasons D3 is getting mandatory b.net authentication is to prevent the above scenario. It'll still get cracked eventually - like pretty much all games - but it'll probably take a while for people to figure out how to circumvent said authentication.

    Re: Official Release date, with proof (NO JOKE)

    @konfeta: well, they had only a week, if I'm not wrong, of preload. Too little to crack. It could only confuse the "scene" if they released a crack that worked in the preload but didn't with the "retail release".
