Time is running out to play before release
Blizzard has confirmed that the closed beta for Diablo III will be ending on May 1st in order to prepare for the official release of the game. The game will be released on May 15th, so time is running out to play the beta before you have to deal with the two weeks of withdrawal until the game is released.
Sources continue to indicate nothing but positive for the upcoming release of Diablo III. While we know it will be hitting the computer on May 15th, the company still has no official word yet on console releases or the possibility of such; but we continue to hear whispers that they are working on it.
It is expected that sales of Diablo III will be brisk, as pre-orders for the title have been quite good, to say the least. It is still too early to tell what kind of sales numbers it will do, but an analyst that we spoke with says he expected this to kick off some positive software sales, and hopes that it will get gaming software sales moving in the right direction.
