335. Re: Diablo III Will Require Persistent Connection, Feature Cash Auctions, and More Aug 2, 2011, 09:50 Bhruic
The Ubisoft games aren't really in the same ballpark in terms of complexity. Diablo III is being built around and an online presence. It's not merely a DRM slap-on. Trying to emulate is going to take a lot of time and effort, and may well be futile.

I'm not saying it won't happen, but my prediction is that it won't happen in a timely fashion. Again, if it were something reasonably easy to accomplish, they'd have already done it for Starcraft II.

But neither of us actually know what'll happen, so I guess I'll just owe you a beer if it turns out you're right.
