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.

If, on the other hand, you take connectivity as a given

And this is where the stupidity of your position jumps out. The reason we're actually having this discussion at all is because connectivity isn't a given. If 100% of the population had a 100% stable connection 100% of the time, then there'd be no rational reason to be upset about this decision. It doesn't take much thinking, however, to easily come up with numerous situations for which there wouldn't be a 100% stable connection. Or one that's available 100% of the time. Or for 100% of the people.

Now, Blizzard can just say "fuck you" to those people, which they've done, and that's fine, it's their business, and they are welcome to ignore whomever they wish. But apologists like you coming in here and acting as if we don't even have the right to be upset about it, on the other hand, is not kosher. You're like the idiot coming in to a thread to say that a game works fine for him, so anyone complaining about bugs is wrong.
