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.

He can dance around it all day but the reality is that it's a large reduction in usability that's not really offset by anything presented with the thinnest possible justification I can imagine. The claim that it's ultimately in service of the customer is pretty amusing. I think a lot of people might respond with "thanks but uh don't do me anymore favors". I'm sure Diablo 3 will be a good game to some people but I'll just spend my money somewhere else. Back when we used to count the years between blockbuster titles in this market I might have said this was a must have title but I have a backlog full of games that fit that description so *shrug*. If they want to be dismissive, give them the same in return.

I just love that he's claiming the game is "built around connectivity" After he's denied repetedly that it's not to try to force people to use a real money auction house that blizzard takes a cut from.

So someone playing solo as a mage for will only find barbarian items in their games, thus forcing them to trade for mage items? Once again it's not even a real or legit reason because it's flat out false. Blizzard fanbois never cease to amaze me with their stupidity.
