PvP Reminder
Vaeflare came on the forums to remind people that PvP will be a free feature that will come in future patches (likely 1.1) and that Blizzard likes giving players lots of free content through the patching method.

It shouldn’t be all that hard to believe, because we’ve never charged extra for our ongoing hotfixes, patches, or features in any of our Diablo titles (Diablo III included), and PvP is no exception. In recent months, we’ve added new and improved Legendaries, the Paragon system, and, coming in patch 1.0.5, the Monster Power system and the Infernal Machine event. We want to make Diablo the best possible game it can be, and we’re committed to making PvP be worthwhile and compelling as well.

As it stands currently, in order to receive the benefits of set bonuses, the set items need to be equipped on your main character. Set items equipped on Followers will not contribute to set bonuses.

We’re aware that this isn’t ideal, and we’re looking into some possibilities that would make using set items on Followers a more appealing choice in the future. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    This was response to a forum post, stating that PvP will cost 40$.

    Comments like this sort of confuse me. They seem to suggest that this game was intended to be an mmo. Sure it has a good deal of replay value, but at some point you WILL run out of things to do. The same thing happened in D2... it just so happened that more people seemed more content to go about repeating the same thing over and over and over again (Hell I remember being in a string cow level games that got to "kow killers 43").
