Should be pretty great, looking forward to playing this one online. I didn't play Diablo 2 online at all back in my dial-up days

Ummmm..... no date listed, but the other "recommended" games include Dungeon siege III, and Dragon Age II, both of which are not currently slated for release before march..... 4 - 5 months pre-order seems a bit much, especially these days when we need to know who the distributer is (EA?) in order to make our buy/nobuy decision.

Last I heard they were still developing content for D3, I'm not exactly the authority on these things but my wild guess is that we won't be seeing it til' Q4 2011 at the earliest (and I could see it easily going into 2010).

Once beta releases, if SC2 is any indication, it could stay in beta 'til 2014

That's my guess, either Q4 2011 or Q1 2012. I wouldn't put my money on a preorder just yet. Look at the people that put money down for preorders on SC2 3 years before the release lol.

Yeah exactly, don't get hasty on D3, still lots of time before an official release date. The pre-order means nothing about the time before release, like headsh0t said.

It's not an MMO so I don't see why they would make it pay to play, and nothing I have heard would suggest that either.
