Diablo III XP Bonus announces that for a limited time, playing Diablo III on Windows or OS X will net players a 50% experience point bonus in the action/RPG sequel to pave the way for the release of the Reaper of Souls expansion at the end of this month:

This hefty XP bonus gives your heroes a leg up on the new Paragon Leveling System, which just went live in patch 2.0.1. The new Paragon Leveling system not only allows ALL of your characters to share and contribute towards a single account-wide Paragon level, but it also grants bonus ability points with each Paragon level gained, which can be discretionally assigned to your character’s stats.

Claiming online only is purely about DRM is about as obtuse as claiming that PoE isn't popular, when it has seen it's own success, just on a smaller scale to that of Diablo.
When the game is released for consoles and can be played without an internet connection, then what is the on-line requirement other than DRM?

I'm not going to go round and round in circles on the topic because I've said it all before. The narrow minded response is always "If they could do it here, why can't they do it on PC?". Three things (among many many more), they don't control PSN or Live and the consoles have same screen coop, there are far more consoles not connected to the net.

I find it humorous that people still take issue with a coop game being online only. There are hundreds/thousands of them out there...but no others take as much shit about it simply because the game from 14 years ago had an offline mode. Reality is, there are so few people that will only ever play single player only Diablo 3, they can go play something else if that's all they want.
