Pre-order Diablo III


Gamestop is already pre-ordering Diablo III, although it makes clear that there is no date, even no price, you can already send Gamestop some money if you like:

Everything to come out from Gamestop/EB Games makes me hate them more and more... This is like setting up the Christmas lights and decorations... In July

I remember pre-ordering Starcraft a month before its "Release Date". The game came out a year and a half later. Good times.

Hah! Money grab for Gamestop. And they are making it 60! IW must be SO proud.

In other news, my FIRST news!

I just can't fathom the stupidity of anyone who would pre-order something before either a price or release date has been announced. I mean seriously--as if there's really going to be a SHORTAGE of copies of a hugely popular Blizzard game. That being said, I'm sure that no fewer than 100,000 people will pre-order before either price or release date are published.

I preordered a copy of Diablo III on Steam for $20 and they let me download and play it early.

Wierd though, the title screen says Torchlight.

Is $5 for "peace of mind" worth it? For some, it is. No one said you had to toss $60 down for it now

Most people use leftover in store credit to pre order things. They would rather you order something than throw it on your edge card.

Nice. I wonder if Pets will be announced for D3 in about 6 months. Along with the ability to micropay your way to better species.

Standard GameStop practice is to open preorders on any games within a couple days of its announcement. You could have pre ordered this at a GameStop store well over a year ago if you wanted to.

Honestly, this is probably done at customer request. They no doubt make some money from funds held in escrow for preorders but this will just be a drop in the bucket.

Seeing as there are other options to procure said game, digital download for instance, I'm at a loss for words. What, no preorder bonus!?!

I didn't know it at the time.

If a Mod is so kind as to update the story with this for me, I would be grateful.

Thanks.
