    Wouldn't it be a good idea to have a Weekly Poll? There is enough space between the "Blizz Tracker" and the "Latest Posts" ^_^

    posted a message on Pre-Order Diablo III - The Truth
    Lately I'm seeing more and more posts about people who have pre-ordered Diablo III. So I thought let's make a post with some info about it.



    Pre-Order:
    The idea for pre-orders came when people found it hard to get popular items in stores due to their popularity. Companies were then given the idea to allow people to reserve their own personal copy, before the release, which has been a huge success. Pre-orders allow consumers to guarantee prompt delivery on release, manufacturers can gauge how much demand there will be and hence how large initial production runs should be, and sellers can be assured of minimum sales. Additionally, high pre-order rates can be used to generate publicity to further increase sales. (Source)

    Online Pre-Order:
    Pre-order incentive, also known as pre-order bonus, is a marketing tactic whereby a retailer or manufacturer/publisher of a product (usually a book or video game) encourages buyers to reserve a copy of the product at the store prior to its release.
    Reasons for this vary, typically publishers wish to ensure strong initial sales for a product, and the offered incentive is used to induce shoppers (who might otherwise wait for positive reviews or a specific shopping period like the holiday season) to commit to a purchase. Having paid for part or all of the purchase when placing the order, these consumers will usually complete the transaction shortly after the product's release, often on its first day in stores. Individual stores or retail chains may also offer bonuses for a popularly anticipated product, to ensure that the customer chooses to buy at that location, rather than from a competitor.
    The pre-order bonus may be as simple as a discount on the item's purchase price or other related merchandise (another marketing strategy), or may consist of an actual item or set of items. These items may be related merchandise or exclusive items available only through the pre-order program. (Source)

    Diablo III Facts:

    • There is no released date announced. And if there is any news about that you will most certainly hear it here on Diablofans and of course on the Blizzard website.
    • Won't be released in 2010. Simply for the reason Blizzard already has 2 major titles planned for this year. Cataclysm and Starcraft 2. This is the first time Blizzard has released 2 major tiles in one year. So with some logical thinking Diablo III will be released somewhere late in 2011 or early 2012, cause Blizzard doesn't want to steal gamers from their own games.
    • It's not even 100% sure that Diablo III will be released. It's a very very very big chance that it will be, but who knows what can happen. (You will lose your money if you have Pre-Ordered it.)
    Conclusion:
    Pre-Ordering Diablo III at this time wouldn't make any sense, just for the reason that there is NO release date. Gamestores just want to make sure that they have enough people pre-ordering the game so they will make enough money at the release of Diablo III. Don't Pre-Order Diablo III and wait for a release date. You will have more then enough time when the time comes. And also don't worry about discounts, there are a enormous amount of gamestores that will lower their prices to steal possible buyers from other competitors.

    I hope this will clear some things up and prevent people from pre-ordering this game. Just have patience, stores only want to benefit from you now cause they know you can't wait.

    posted a message on Will the last class be portrayed as a female?
    Seems obvious. I think it will probably be a sort of Amazon/Rogue class, since they were both female in D2 it seem logical that the 5th class would be female. And it just looks better in character selection. Also, with a future expansion in mind and the return of the Necromancer (another male) and maybe a other female class and suggestion there will be 2 expansion characters just like D2. You'll have 3 female and 4 male. Nicely outbalanced if you ask me.
