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.

Shared what? So any single player game that has a walk through on a forum thread or faq for example is not truly a single player game? Is that actually what you just tried to say? Are you fucking kidding me?

No, I'm not 'fucking kidding you'. Believe it or not, companies often design their single-player experiences in the knowledge that a minority of players will 'discover' a majority of the content, and disseminate it via the internet. That's why even games like Prof.Layton have to tread carefully to prevent pushing people towards spoiler sites.

I was also careful to say "I'm not by any stretch trying to call it 'multiplayer'", but that must have got missed.

As I said, Skyrim is right, right down at the single player end of the spectrum. D3 is, by design, not.

You realize this line of logic makes no sense right? At least I hope you would. Then again since you're talking like it would have been soooo difficult to not force always on DRM I'm guessing you prolly don't.

What I really want to know is what Blizzard's excuse will be once the dupes start rolling. I'll grab a box of popcorn for that one, it's sure to be epic on a truly grand stage of fail.
