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.

I know your reasons, and those of others here, but I don't know why they are your reasons. I don't know why it's so desperately important that the (technologically mandated) 'tradition' of pure unconnected single-player be continued. I don't see how the game would be improved as a result.

You don't understand that a game that can be played both offline and online is an improvement over a game that forces you to always be online?

Not when that game isn't actually designed or balanced for full disconnection, and not when connectivity is almost a given, no.

Of course this is an improvement though, nobody plays games without an internet connection, and nobody would ever want to play a Diablo game by themselves.

As I just got through saying, I sympathise with those who can't play D3 because of their internet connection. I do not sympathise with those who have an internet connection but can't enjoy D3 solo play unless they know it isn't being used.
