Diablo III Footage, Beta This Month?

DiabloFans.com has word from an Activision/Blizzard business teleconference, reporting "Mike Morhaime said that Diablo 3 would be heading into Beta 'later this month'," though we've seen several indications this may be the friends and family beta, rather than a more widespread test of the action/RPG sequel. They also have a follow-up post with some leaked Diablo III beta video which may not last long.

SOJ and Rings of the Zodiac for trade! WTB Windforce. Diablo's economy was always a joke.

It depends on how you played the game but this is true for the most part.

In classic, the economy essentially became destroyed through countless pp SoJ duping along with several other items. While you could still acquire an item such as the SoJ through legit means, such as farming Andariel in Hell mode, you could also find some pretty kick ass legit items off Mephisto or be really lucky off a transmute from Charsi which you could trade for the duped items. Whether you liked it or not, SoJs ran the show in classic.

In the expansion, SoJs weren't by any means the economy. Well, they were, but we're talking a much more watered down value compared to their worth in classic because they would convert with the level requirement. Here, dupes were still worth a lot but regular unique items carried more weight but the true value was found in runes and runeword items. USEast also had access to Oculus rings which were hacked stats from the weapon placed on to a ring which was a hot item until ruststorm hit and wiped them out.

The only way you could really get a grasp on the economy (and I say this loosely) was to participate in the ladder but even though, there was a lot of shady business.

This is one of the big reasons as to why they want to make this title require a constant internet connection and prevent the economy from becoming a joke by holding all the key files on their end rather then placing them all on a users system and be open for duplication or hacking especially with their new real money auction house.
