I am betting we see credit card pay ware DLC comming from Blizzard. It's such a no briainer for Activision they must be pushing for it. As for the 6.3 million, that's probably just box sales, and since you have to be online to play it doesn't really equate to an actual mmo-like game population.

Unlike EA, Blizzard has a reputation of quality games (doesnt matter if YOU personally do not believe it, money and sales talk)

 

I bought Diablo, at its core its really a simple game, but its fun and its not half way made, other than the launch of the game I dont see it wrought with bugs or partial content

I dont get it personally.  How does a game D3 get so many box sales and awesome games with way more meat barely register on anyones minds or playlist.

I wonder what Diablo 4 will do when it launches in 2036.

 

Chances are, with how much Blizzard has fallen and how far away from its roots Diablocraft 3 is, that Diablo 4 will be just a facebook game or console-only fps.

Maybe because D3 is actually a good and fun game? who would have thunk that?

Blizzard sells names. I'm not a fan of the genre, but hell all the crap that they put in this game I don't know how people can play it. Online only single player and RMA are reason enough for me not to play this game. People will always have their opinions but reall this game isn't all that great and it's just selling because of the blizzard title attach to it. Sooner or later that card is gonna get pulled, but I highly doubt it with our market not demading quality any more and accepting what ever crap is thrown at them.

Not to mention all the other little facts, like:

 

  1. Bought reviews - the disarray and difference between user reviews and critic reviews of D3 on metacritic proves that. Dragon age II had that situation. ME3 had that situation. This just proves that a lot of reviewers are blindly writing marketing texts about D3 instead of...well, reviewing. 
  2. Blizzard apologists who will allow Blizz to do whatever they want with their games and find excuses for the horrible DRM D3 employs. As Totalbiscuit said in his stance on D3, its "frightening" that so many fanbois are DEFENDING those choices of Blizzard, as if it was any other company like Ubisoft or Activision, people would be burning and pillaging their HQ right now. 
  3. Blizzard fanbois will try to prove that its a "great game" and find excuses for all the mess and everything that is wrong with it(like no statpoints and skillpoints).
  4. Unaware general public has no idea at all that total whopping ONE person from original team is in this and pretty much none of people that matters are involved with Diablocraft 3. 
  5. A lot of sales are gold sellers from china or other countries known for that activity. Which is ironic because with RMT Trading Blizz ENCOURAGED goldsellers and hackers to enter the game. 
  6. Hype and marketing.

Exactly, just like you have yours so there is no really or truely when it comes to personal opinions. People have been using this line 'Blizzard's name is attached to it so it sells' for how many years now? if it was true that Blizzard makes crap games and they somehow managed to sell games only by using their name, don't you think after all these years they would have milked that option by now?

why the hell would people keep buying Blizzard games if what you said was true? they can fool you once or twice with their name but not everytime.

My suggestion??give up, Blizzard makes fun games which are high in quality, that is why their game sells like hot cakes.

Bought reviews have been factually proven by more than one incident.

Blizz fanbois and apologists also have a factual evidence of existing. 

The fact that D3 was not made by same developer team is also not something the general public knows or ha da way of knowing, as proven by both their reactions to Torchlight and comments on Diablo 3.

Please try to argue over the obvious truth that D3 is biggest target of gold sellers and hackers in last few years. Please do. The Account Hacking incident this week that was a huge fiasco on Blizz's part just reinforces it. 

The last point is pretty much supported by marketing theory.

 

So yeah. Facts.

I don't really get it either, but then I don't really care that they have 6 million users.  I don't get the appeal of the new Blizzard.  Whatever though, as long as I can play my favorite games they can throw fancy numbers around all they want.  It really means nothing to me.  I don't mind being out of touch really.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

Sure whatever you say..you think you are the first one to pass opinions as facts? honestly, i enjoyed the game a lot and i am one of those gamers who missed out on original game and the sequel. So i am far from fanboy.

But still i can't help but feel sorry for people like you..trying so hard to piss on the succes of D3, but it is like pissing in the wind..only you are going to get wet.

From how you talk, you do not really get on what a "fact" and what an "opinion" is

Opinion would be saying that Diablocraft III is an awfully mediocre game made purely as an excuse for RMT trading and the cuts blizz will get from it.  Thats debatable and can be supported or refuted with arguments. 

The fact that Diablo 3's sales are built up upon the misinformation, hype and marketing is not an opinion. Its a fact supported by factual evidence.  Thats not debatable. 

 

 

Also just a note but your second paragraph invalidates the conclusion of  first. :)

My suggestion??give up, Blizzard makes fun games which are high in quality, that is why their game sells like hot cakes.

That cake is a lie. People will always have their opinions because those without opinions can't view a game for what it really is and not sound like some fan boy defending a crap company. Depending on who they areattracting because as always, I can't speak for others who are impressed by it, the game in it self only sells because Blizzard is making it. But just like Cataclysm, it's a rushed game with core features that take advantage of people and masquerade as a quality game. If this game was released by Blizzard before their merger with Activision, it would be a completely diffrent game. But if you wanna overlook how they are laughing at their so called "loyal fans" by milking them by releasing a "high quality" with a real money auction house and a online only single player.  COD is the same crap each year but people still buy it because of familiarity and thats the same reason people buy Blizzard games. People buy the brand because of the name they created, not the quality of games they put out.
