Meh, this game is inconsequential till it arrives, and in accordance with the rules of haterism, "fuck off blizzard, die in a fire".

"Polish nobody creates fake Diablo III box". I'm glad this is one of the major headlines for today.

I think this might be photoshopped. I can tell from some of the pixels and having seen quite a few shops in my time.

Actually, "wont" is a real word [http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/wont], and is used properly given it's definition. L2Dictionary.com before you lawl at someone's "typo".

Well, that is quite impressive. I was fooled for a second, tbh. Seems nearly legit.

Captcha; shernmet Land: ... What does it mean?

It's a well known fact that some retailers just put whatever in the thumbnail to increase legitimacy and boost sales. My Polish brethren kinda try hard... especially for 179.90 zł.

I'm sure the artist who put all that work into that portrayal of Sargeras might have something to say. If this had a bit more originality to it, like an original portrait, it would deserve some better kudos. As it stands though? Lame.

I would think that the quickest give away would have been all the disclaimers and such on the supposed "boxart" since boxart is usually released without all those information boxed and disclaimers. They usually appear after localization is completed, which means just a few weeks or days before the game goes gold and even then aren't usually a part of the official boxart release that most publishers distribute to garner interest.

Ultima.pl gave a 200 PLN (zł) price.

Holy shit. Diablo 2 was 160 at the time, and it was A LOT. I really hate the whole $50 = 50 EUR thing.

Guess I'll have to buy it digitally... BUT I WANT THE BOX ;[

Either way, maybe I could still save myself and ask when's the last time Blizzard released a pet in a collector's edition game, but the most recent Blizzard game I own is Diablo II so I wouldn't know either way.

Somehow I'm not excited for Diablo 3 knowing my classes (necromancer and druid) are gone.

The Druid was also added in the Expansion of Diablo 2, so keep your hopes up that Blizzard might do the same again.

As for the Necromancer I think the Which Doctor is the exact same class just with a name change, though I have to admin it would have been more awesome to keep the name "Necromancer".

Heh heh... yeah, I've done that kinda thing before, too.

It's been a trend ever since World of Warcraft hit. WoW and each expansion has had a code to redeem for in-game pets if you got the collector's editions, and Starcraft 2 also came with a code that unlocked a couple extra things in the game itself when attached to your B.net account, and also unlocked a pet for in WoW.

So given that, it's a safe bet that D3 will have a collector's edition that will have little extras unlocked for all three games (who knows what for D3 itself, decals/portrait for SC2, and a pet for WoW).
