Looks like Blizzard/Activision has done it again, and found yet another way to annoy/piss off/infuriate their paying customers. Buying Diablo 3 as a digital download apparently gives you only limited access to the game for the first 72 hours. The Internets are not happy. Check out the Internet tough guys letting their voices be heard on two NON-Blizzard sites. (PS: These are NOT anti-Blizzard websites, but a web-comic site about video games and a tech site which reviews games. These sites are usually mostly positive or neutral to Blizzard.)
I think the whole Real Money Auction House ‘feature’ has been bad for Blizzards reputation so far. I’m not playing the game (to expensive for how much I’d play it right now) but those that WANTED to love the game seem to be getting pissed off at all the stuff they are having to endure for what is essentially a single player game.
