    Though I hate to say it, I don't think they would buy that many servers for Diablo 3, yet... that seems a bit overkill for a game that won't see open beta for probably a long peroid of time.

    1,500 opteron servers is overkill for ANYTHING. As a network admin and server admin, I know how well opterons work, and how they are suppost to be deployed. It's really hard knowing what blizzard wants to really use them for... I could only imagine... 100 MAX being used for WoW.. Unless they are replacing all of their servers, in which case I guess 400 could be used... 1,500 is just way too many for any company to buy.

    Although, they could also just be getting a very good bulk deal on them... but buying servers then waiting to use them is just plan stupid, as you're better off buying somthing current.

    Umaro is right. Although it really depends on how Blizzard deals with WOW's upgrades. If they just plan on adding the servers, don't expect anything for D3 yet, but if they are replacing them, the older ones may be enough for a D3 beta, assuming that the beta will support multiplayer.

    I just read that even if WOW doubles its current number of servers, there would still be around 1000 leftover.

    Someone mentioned that it might be perhaps for the expansion to WoW. Let's hope that it would also be for, at least, D3 Beta.

    They will have more than enough power for beta D3.
