The open portion of the beta will begin at 3:00 pm EDT today and will run through Monday at 1:00 pm EDT. The accompanying FAQ explains how this will operate, and notes that while Korean players cannot participate, they will be holding a separate invitation-only event in Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. The invitation only closed beta will continue as planned until May 1st. To get a head start, you can download the client now from

You hit the nail on the head with your last statement there which is what gets aggravating about now a-days when discussing PC gaming. I totally understand everyone having their own opinion on how they would like to see things in a game and I respect that… I just wish everyone else would have the same level or respect for others opinions…

They do for the most part. There's a minority of "haters" and "fanboys" who basically just crap all over each other. Most of us have a respectable middle ground for this stuff and can criticize something while still enjoying it or praise something we might not necessarily like. The vocal minority and all that

There's this amusing fallacy that PC gaming or Bluesnews is somehow more vocal or "whiny". As someone who is a member of a dozen different larger forums with a wide variety of interests represented, let me tell you its pretty much the same everywhere. People also seem to confuse discussion with argument and several posters just resort to personal insults or rhetoric because they can't stomach someone not sharing their opinion.

I'm going to enjoy Diablo 3 (I hope) and I don't begrudge anyone for not buying it, there are many valid reasons to avoid purchasing it. More power to those people. The idea that "so many people are buying it" that others don't matter is patently false. Diablo is a successful franchise but it is more of a long tail seller, that's part of why Activision is doing a console port to reach a wider market. They want all of the money, not just part of it
