Agree with bold statements. Constant connection is terrible and wrong. That is just so sad.. is the game even going to feature single player?? (don't need to answer that, I'm sure it will, but this is absurd).

-.-
This is why I have always had a problem with steam, as well. Personal preference, but I will not buy steam games when I can get a retail copy. I don't need anyone checking up on me every time I want to play a single player campaign. Heaven forbid my internet connection goes out for some reason. Because that never happens when the only company I can use is Charter.......................

Blizzard have put the boring option temptingly close to the long and rewarding search for great loot. I don’t have to take it, of course, but I worry the search will seem that much longer and less rewarding with a Buy It Now button nestled right next to it.
That right there is my biggest concern, but i find it kind of hard to believe the game won't be rewarding at all. There are a lot of other games coming out this year so i might just end up skipping this all together.

I would hope that it's a fixed percentage, or a tiered percentage based on the item value. (I cannot read the article as PC Gamer is blocked by our firewall )

Why dont ALL of you read the whole thing, the AUCTION HOUSE is player driven. Meaning blizzard doesnt get any money out of it, only unless you decide you want real money for what you found in game. Because paypal charges a fee for sellers, and BLIZZARD will most likely be using PAYPAL as the 3rd party you will have to pay a small flat flee (probs 1$) but this flat flee doesnt increase if what you sold is 500$ or 1000$ or 1$. Its the same fee for every price.

Or you can decide to use blizz cash instead of real cash, where there isnt a flat flee i dont believe, and u can use that money to buy items in game from other people, or buy subscriptions or future games or anything from the merchandise store.

Blizzard wont be selling gold or items. So it will be only the players that put up items they find. And since there is no botting, this will be hard o be exploited. Considering this game isnt a eSport or balanced PvP, this wont do anything. The whole game is a campaign, if all you care about when playing Diablo 3 is PvP, you shouldnt be playing the game anyways.

Also, why are you all crying???
Remember d2 jspp??
*** were they doing? Selling and buying gold and items???
At least blizzard saw that everyone does this, and said hey we know more than 50% people will use 3rd party sites to buy items, why not make one in game, purely player driven, we make no profit from it, but it makes a safe transaction where no identities are shown, and there is no chance of you getting scammed.


I dont understand why people are hating and saying "oh k ya defs not buying this game"

This isnt anything new from D2, blizzard just decided to make it safer

And of course they get a cut. What a blatant cash grab move. Blizzard you are officially money grubbing little worms and I hate you.

My only fear is that they are going to be consumer unfriendly and require you to log into Battle.net even for single player. I know I miss out on some great games this way but I refuse to support that kind of thing. I refuse to buy any Ubisoft games b/c of their use of the always on Internet connection DRM and I will refuse to buy any game from any publisher that requires the same thing. Torchlight 2 is going to allow LAN. Runic is a small developer true to their PC gaming roots. I'd much rather support them than a company who cuts a feature like LAN play for paying customers in order to make the game harder to pirate for their non-paying customers. Backwards priorities right there.

IgorDJ is right. For all you complaining about the internet connection required there is a seperate thread for that. I am all for everything I have seen released besides the internet connection required... but I am willing to bet they will patch it at some point once the game has been out for awhile.

First, I'm not going to argue for against steam I'm just going to state some facts.

Unless a game (ubisoft) has separate online DRM you can luanch steam in offline mode and play SP or LAN for any game that offers it.

Also, you can be online and still choose to be offline for your friends list in case you don't want to be bothered.

Personally, I like steam mainly because of the sales and it exposes me to a lot of indie games I otherwise wouldn't play. However, for certain games I really like, I'll opt to get the retail box so I have a sense of ownership with a physical copy.

They do not take a % of the sale. As previously stated they take a flat rate no matter what the sales proportions. Some of the sales released in screenshots were for 2.21 with buyouts of 5.00 I would think the FLAT RATE would have to be quite low.

How about reading what Blizzard actually said before posting.
