So you just have to pay a few dollars to get access to Battle.net 2.0. By the way: they’re also planning the same for Diablo 3
but we already knew this months ago as Blizzard said this on the conference in 2008. That’s not a big surprise because people knew it already in
2008 but always thought that it’ll be avoided by other incomes. That’s why Blizzard didn’t announced it on BlizzCon. Diablo III’s
director Jay Wilson recently told an audience at BlizzCon that Blizzard and Activision are looking to make some money with the Battle.Net service.
Jay Wilson: We are looking to monetize Battle.Net so that we get to keep making these games and updating features. We kind of have to. The other
argument is that Blizzard can 100% avoid piracy with this monthly costs. There aren’t any further informations about the costs yet but it is
supposed to be between 5 and 8 $. Less than World of Warcraft. This was also an answer to the 130.000 petition signatures. We will keep you
blizzard are just pathetic,they had many years to work on diablo 3 and starcraft 2,and yet there isnt even a demo allready,the games are
finished,,just release them!
they always talk about "polishing" and "it will be out when its ready"
are you crazy?
lots of cool games like call of duty,assasins creed,need for speed get sequels every year
and theyr just AS GOOD!
im sick of watching so many people play starcraft,i dont care how strategic it is,play age of mythology or something newer!
and lets not talk about how they riped sc out of warhammer 40000.
they have this blizzcon that is like a nerdrage fest,so we watch them speak how "its too early to estimate a release date"
and now they want to charge starcraft 2 and diablo 3 a monthy fee?
wasnt the money from wow enough?
thank god im more grown up now,and games rarely obssess me for more then a 2-3 days. Blizzard Ducks and dustin browder should be STONED!
i cant wait for theyr game to get pirated like crazy couse they deserve it!
