I think to alpha test you are required to install SPY WARE so blizz can watch your computer and if you terminate your contract with them they format your HDD

they probably just kill you if you copy files to another drive/ device. I am sure thats in the contract that you sign with blood, I mean this game is called DIABLO.
i've had that done before. It's just a software that allows the rep to use/control your computer at that moment, not for a day or for weeks. you can see everything he is doing and then you remove control and that is that. it sounds really intrusive but it's not.

They are usually one and the same. Which developer will allow you to access the full game? If you actually read the article, you would then have realized that Blizzard is granting users access to entire Act I of the title. However this will not significantly involve the usage of runestones, a very important aspect of the game since they have replaced skills.

Its not even the entire act 1. Its 1/3 of Act 1, Ends at the skeleton king. Its roughly 1 and 1/2 hours of gameplay.

They can keep D3. I'd rather watch my cartoons (a la WOW) on Saturday mornings anyway and then play my offline games on my own terms.

As to it not being released this year for balance issues...I'd also like to think it would be polished to perfection, but the holiday buying season is also going to be a huge factor in it's release time frame.
I just doubt that Blizz would release in Jan/Feb, when people are broke from Xmas.
