EEDIT: The time of reckoning is upon us, so I updated the thread title.

Diablo III Collectors Edition - PC & OSX - $99.99

The initial batch has been totally claimed for the longest time, but I woke up this morning to an alert from Amazon that the CE is available for pre-order again. If you were interested, snatch one from this new batch quick!

Note: It looks like it's limited to 1 copy per customer.

EDIT: Looks like everyone got a new batch of pre-orders. Available at BBY and GameStop now too, both of which had their initial allotments claimed long ago.

Diablo III CE Contents:

  • Diablo III full game.
  • Behind the scenes making of DVD.
  • Diablo III Soundtrack.
  • The Art of Diablo III book.
  • Diablo skull and 4gig USB soulstone.
  • The full games: Diablo II and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction come loaded on the flashdrive.
  • The soulstone USB fits into the skull as a resting place/decoration item.
  • Special digital bonus features in Blizzard games:
  • "Aesthetic Artifacts" in Diablo III: Two special color dyes (Bottled Cloud and Bottled Smoke) and glowing Tyrael's Angelic Wings. The wings toggle on and off. You can use all these items as many times as you want and can transfer to other characters on a single account via the shared Stash.
  • World of Warcraft Fetish Shaman pet.
  • Starcraft II Battle.net character portraits

Snagged one just in case this turns out actually being limited. Can always cancel before it ships if that's not the case.

As a few posters above said, we have about 7 years before it ships anyways.

That's an amazing CE. I built a new PC a few weeks ago specifically for this game.

I know they're delaying the game to make things in the game as perfect as possible, but DAMMIT I WANT I WANT I WANT!!

...

Thanks, OP.

ordered one too. I figure I have months to decide if it's worth it. They still haven't put a release date on it.

Yup, I'm in this boat. I'm considering getting the year sub WoW deal instead of this though.

Don't know why you guys are saying it'll take 7 years to ship. They recently announced quarter 2 release in the upcoming fiscal year (summer time)

Actually this is incorrect. Blizzard recently reported that the game definitely won't ship in the first quarter of this year. It never said it was coming in Q2 or said anything about when it would actually drop.

Wait for Q2 for the report that the game will not be coming out in Q2.

They also said it was target in 2011. Hence the jokes about its release

Nah it will be released June this year and I would say august by the latest. I for one can wait until then. I appreciate a game not being released until it is really ready not like most games these days.

I wonder how many folks here are old enough to remember the good old days of Diablo.


I do and loved it. Can't forget that squishy ear sound after you'd kill someone haha.

I think that was my first online RPG.. after that I played Ultima Online (which was awesome and I have so many stories about that game). Then I got sucked into various MMOs for like the following 10yrs lol.

If people are going to throw a shit fit about in-stock Skylander figures being posted in the Deals section, then this doesn't belong either.

It's bullshit that you can only preorder one copy. My wife and I are both eagerly awaiting this game. Now she has to go create an Amazon account to order the same thing with the same credit card.

Just goes to show you can never please people. They'll bitch about a game being delayed to fix bugs, etc. They'll also bitch about a game being released with bugs and patches being applied afterwords.

Some people are just determined to be miserable no matter what.

Alright, so who waits to charge until the order has shipped? I don't have the money now but want to stake my claim.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

Yup, I'm in this boat. I'm considering getting the year sub WoW deal instead of this though.

If you order the Collector's Edition, and do the WoW year deal, when you enter your D3 collector's edition key, it will count as 4 months of your WoW sub. So basically you get $60 back in WoW time.

I for one appreciate that only one per account can be ordered. I am so sick of hoarders, resellers, ebayers, craig list dopes etc etc etc.

BTW why do you need two copies of a CE for you and your wife? Are you worried about a divorce? I mean why do you need two copies of a dvd, soundtrack etc in the same household. Sorry that just doesn't make sense to me.


There are digital extras that can't be shared

There are extra in-game items (for D3, WoW and SC2) as well.
