Dear Josh,

 

Whenever you visit this thread again, you'll realize we are pretty high maintenance and suffer separation anxiety.

 

Eagerly Awaiting Your Return,

The mixed DRM thing in bundles definitely needs to go. You've got two very polarized camps for digital games one being pro and the other being anti Steam (you'll find more of the former here) but both sides will hate mixed DRM bundles and not want to buy them.

 

I'm assuming that was Josh's doing since that's a noob mistake. Tony did that a long time ago when he first started putting bundles together but after a bunch of people chewed him out over it he stopped doing it and never did it again.

 

Same and same.  I like boxed copies of Blizzard games because if you're not giving me a pricebreak for the pure digital version, I want the box.  I didn't jump on the digital download bandwagon until digital download sales were more attractive than bargin-bin prices.

 

FWIW I have the box copy of D3 and when I went to reinstall recently just opted straight from digital download. The disc is horribly out of date and there have been many patches since then, some of them quite huge and comprehensive. It just makes more sense to me for anything but a new game to install from digital from the source.

 

That's not to say I won't go for boxed if it's cheaper. When I got D3 on Black Friday 2012 it was $10 for the box from Microsoft vs $60 for digital from Blizzard, so yeah box it was.

 

All things being equal if I have to pay more and the price is the same I think I would still opt for digital unless the physical version had some trinkets or swag or some such.

 

Even behind the times Blizzard's gotten to the point where their boxed copies are just a code in a box that you activate to an account plus some horribly outdated data on a disc that you'll end up re-downloading tons of large patches on anyway.

 

Boxed might be okay for re-releases of classic games like D2 though where we know they won't really be getting anymore updates. *shrug*

I already had DL'ed the Starter Kit (for up to Skeleton King).

 

When I bought D3 Retail Box a while back from TRU for $10 - all I did was apply my game-code to my BNet account and let it update.

Whereas I have a box copy of D3 and recently installed it from disc, and then I waited for the 12gb patch to download. Yeah. Probably wasn't worth bothering with the disc.

I've long since lost my D2 box and had to rebuy it a little bit ago :roll:

 

Hopefully that sort of thing is no longer the case and they won't delete old accounts or make it near impossible to recover or re-activate them without the box. I'll try to hold onto the D3 box just in case but I honestly don't know that I'll 10+ years be able to hold onto it. :-P

They asked me for the code from a boxed copy but I don't have any so I have to send them a scan of my driver's license.  So yep, they still make it a pain.  If I were you I would at least scan a copy and keep it digitally backed up.

Did you lose your LoD box, too?

Or do you have the Diablo Battle Chest w/ both?

 

Wait - can we activate our Retail D2 + LoD keys on BNet?

Yeah, I was was literally focused on the box... chuck the key into the account and treat it like a digital purchase (with a distinct lack of meatspace-copy-cyberspace-paste functionality).  For the same price, I'd like to have the box on my shelf (I can later chuck it if desired).

 

I've long since lost my D2 box and had to rebuy it a little bit ago :roll:

Just take a picture of box/serial card.

I dredged up my D2 keys from a text file I had stored them in way back when.  (easier than reaching for the box)

 

Wait - can we activate our Retail D2 + LoD keys on BNet?

Yes, and I strongly adivise that you do.  The only reason to install from disc is if you wanted to run on an older patch version.
