Diablo III Speed Hack?

A post on Diablo IncGamers offers a video showing a character in the Diablo III beta moving at extreme speeds. Many of the posters in the ensuing discussion thread feel this may be showing an actual speed hack for the game as other elements seem to move at normal speed, which suggests this is not just sped-up video. They reproduce a quote from the Blizzard on this also suggesting it may be real, as it says: "Thanks for bringing this to our attention. If you would like to report information regarding cheats or hacks, send it to Please donít assist with disseminating the information by posting it here on the forums." Since this is the type of thing that requiring online play is meant to prevent, if there is such a cheat in the wild, hopefully it can be addressed quickly.

Having cheat prevention software running on their servers is not DRM.

No one said it was. Requiring a persistent connection with a uniquely identifying serial number/account IS DRM. You just choose to believe their excuse that requiring an always-on connection is to protect us from hackers, which isn't even an issue in off-line single player or LAN. You can add, can't you?

EDIT: OK, Cutter said it was. Lol.
EDIT: And Dades.
EDIT: And yuastnav.
EDIT: et al
