Diablo III in February?

Joystiq has an image of a store display in a Rochester, Minnesota Best Buy that seems to show a February 1 launch date for Diablo III, Blizzard's upcoming action/RPG sequel. They have some follow ups that don't completely confirm or deny this, and word that the end-cap was legit, but has since been removed. Meanwhile, the Best Buy Website now shows a February 1 release date for the game.

It doesn't matter when it comes out, because Blizzard will control WHEN you are allowed to play it or not...
.. because Blizzard will control WITH WHAT LOOT you are allowed to play with or not.

FTFY my friends

I played the Beta as Witch Doctor , and I am eager to buy and play this game , giving it a good run, however, I will not make this a religious experience as Diablo 2 was back in it's day. I know this is a game to appease the WoW cash generators, and a skinned Starcraft 2 game, with loot drops depending on the market place governed by Blizzard CEO's and nothing more. Still, art style is very good, The sound in dungeons of crying dead is awesome, and am looking forward to balance tweaks and meeting the further bosses. Oh and the Skeleton King, was a joke to kill, I know it's Beta, but Andy in Diablo 2 Act 1 was 75 times harder. I was lucky to find a Bow with 11 damage, +2 electric damage, and my pets were dealing my weapon damage, I was walking through the last stage of the Beta, with +Multikills every step of the way. Bow / Witch doctor, Very Very (easy) fun.

The current UI / hotbar in my opinion though , is a major stepback from D2, God I will miss the F-Keys for skill concertos.

And to all Diablo Experts that say Bestbuy fake until Blizzard says so, well, if Blizzard is about to say so, then you all fail.
