The feb 1st is just a placeholder. It's a common practice for retail stores. I remember when I worked at best buy years ago we did the same thing with the new halo game. I'd be surprised if we see d3 in the first quarter. I'd guess mid 2nd quarter is when we will be seeing it on shelves.
Diablo 3 console release CONFIRMED!
Not that I'll be playing it on a console, but that's some big news. I wonder if there will be cross platform play? I might get it for PS3 as well if there is. That way my gf can play with me, since we only have one gaming capable PC.
still regret selling my copy of Diablo PSX.
They released some info as to why it's being pushed back ever farther today. They took out the mystic so no more enchanting items. They took out the cauldron and the cube so no more selling and destroying items on the go. They added some stuff to the stats on characters. They also took away scrolls of identify. Now you are able to identify stuff after you complete a certain quest. Thing is though it takes a while for you to identify stuff, so instead of instantly knowing what something is, it's slowly revealed... Some pretty lame changes that they could've done without IMO except for the statistics changes. I'm guessing december of this year now .
They didn't add stats, they removed some.
The mystic might be added back at a later date.
No more identify scrolls? Umm, that's awesome. Who wants to carry those stupid things around?
Nope. This game is a fabled unicorn. Speculation that is coming with the lead producer leaving is that it won't hit until 2013. Steve was really adamant about getting this out ASAP but that douche jay Wilson has too much power and is delaying it saying its "yet to be ready".
Don't forget Torchlight 2... The first one was meh. But now that they have had some success, and made some cash, it appears they are putting a lot more time and money into TL2. Everything I've seen of it so far looks much improved.
...and lets not forget it's made by two of the guys who founded Blizzard North.
I just got in the beta. For now, I'm completely underwhelmed, but I only played for 30 minutes before I had to go to work. I find it doesn't look that nice, and it doesn't have that blizzard feel to it. Again, I only played a little bit, so tonight we'll see.
I already preordered it a long time ago, and I'm gonna play it anyways, I just hope it'll be a lot more polished before release.
run come save me
