41. Re: Diablo III 72 Hour Restrictions to Change Jun 23, 2012, 00:43 MisterBenn
All the vitriolic noise, bad headlines and customer dissatisfaction in the world are short term and acceptable in the eyes of Blizzard. These days the only variables that they track are how much can you push the monetisation of this product, and how much will it detract from the monetisation of the next product. This was a record breaking release and if Diablo 4 were to be released in say 7 years time, millions will buy that too. There is literally no chance that inside Blizzard they are talking about this as a failure. They have chosen to fend off the backlash on a day by day basis and push on with the plan, and given that their aim is to maximise revenue, they are doing the correct thing and will succeed!

Having said that, this wriggling is quite fun to watch from the sidelines, it's a bit like a slow motion car crash!
