Diablo III Starter Edition announces the release of a free starter edition of Diablo III, allowing the chance to sample Blizzard's action/RPG sequel through level 13 and up to the encounter with the Skeleton King. Word is: "Any progress and achievements you earn while playing the Starter Edition will automatically carry over if you decide to upgrade to the full version of Diablo III, and the Starter Edition restrictions will be removed."

cool, it says your character will come over. that's a good message.

now, what about message about always online DRM. playing single player, online. is that message clear or is it still buried in fine print someone on the cover, phrased in a vague manner?

You mean as clear as when they openly announced it months before launch, and repeated it ad nauseum until the game was released?

Are you even trying anymore?
Ya, because everyone reads gaming news websites before they buy a game. No. People just go and enter a gaming shop and suddenly buy whatever they see on the shelves that looks good. if the cover doesn't have the necessary "research" on it, then the buyer assumes the research has already been done, by the company, in the favor of the customer. But, fine print messages aren't really in the favor of the customer.

You really think someone is going to see a game on the shelf, and walk away and go home first to research it? No. Get real.

If that's what people need to do these days, then we've entered a sad time.

And thats what those compagnies know they are not doing , put a golden ribbon around the package and people buy it , and then ignore them i hate beeing but..cked
