Amazon Italy Pegs Diablo III with Release Date

Unread postby News Portal » 5 Mar 12, 10:17 am

Retailers jumping the gun on a game’s release is nothing new, but it’s also just as often a placeholder date or price so that things look a little more legit. Regardless, Amazon Italy has currently slapped an expected arrival time of April 17th on [app=4089]Diablo III[/app] – a date that has failed to change even after G4G ran with the story over the weekend, presumably prompting Blizzard to go, “Argh! Desist!” and throw magic hammers at them.

If it ain't official, then it ain't official.

Here's hoping. The date seems entirely reasonable, but I won't be holding my breath.

the reason why it seems really likely to be accurate is the date and prices of the standard and collectors edition was mentioned, leaks or rumors or anything hardly show information regarding all 3

Wow, people actually still believe retailers putting random release dates on things.

Of course. A foreign company, which has little to nothing to do with Blizzard at all, must absolutely know what the release date is. How could anybody possibly find fault in this release date? It must be positively legit. I, for one, thoroughly believe that, even though Blizzard haven't announced it anywhere else through legitimate channels, that this must positively be the correct release date. It can't possibly be wrong, right?

I refuse to believe Amazon would stoop to using underhanded tactics like this just to secure more pre-orders from desperate, gullible people.

You can always tell days when GON has no real news worthy things to report, it's all just a bunch of rumours and hypothesis...

Blizzard betas usually last more than a month and first EU beta keys only just went out so April looks unlikely

This article is just as much a news story as any other they've ever posted, if you take out speculation and rumours then very little interesting news ever happens.

The D3 beta has been going for months now, heaps of people have played it and are still doing so.
