WC3 is tempting but I owned it before and never got around to finishing it. I doubt I'd finish it if I bought it again especially when I already have some stuff on PC. MUST RESIST BUYING AND HOARDING......

Generally speaking, when things sell out on BestBuy.com, are they gone for the week? Or is there a chance that they'll get more in stock before the sale is over?

Is this a day sale or a week long sale? They won't restock today. Later this week is remotely possible. Best bet is to get it in store if you want one that's sold out.

highly unlikely they will restock online, it is basically a clearance sale. your best bet is to try, and find it in store if you really want the games

Well I can't find any store even remotely close to me (in the NW) that has the Diablo chest in stock.

I guess you just need the key really so presumably if I knew someone in another state where these were in stock I could get them to open the box, email me the keys and then download the game from battle.net right?

*Edit: also, how reliable is the online stock listing for the stores? If it says Unavailable is it possible that my local store might still have it anyway?

I'm not sure about that. The older titles work with the legacy Battlenet, not the new one active with Starcraft 3 and Diablo 3. I don't know if you can install without the discs. At least I've never tried.

Had a Reward Zone Certificate to use, so Diablo II for $3 is a pretty good deal.


I did the same thing here. Just about through DIII. Never played DII that long and I have been just getting back into PC gaming...

The description says it's only 2 and it's expansion


The battle chest includes diablo, diablo II and diablo II LOD. It doesn't however have the Sierra expansion to diablo, Hellfire.

Ermm.. Is there any chance someone would buy both the Diablo and the Warcraft battle chest for me and ship them overseas? I'll obviously pay for the trouble.
I'll love you forever!

I've always wanted to buy those...

The keys are region-locked so they most likely won't work.

Of the old games? I'm 99% they are not (to be clear I want the WC3 battle chest)..
And even if they are, I remember Blizzard's support being friendly towards this issue with SC2.

I'd appreciate A LOT if someone would help me with this.

There are two versions. The newer one, which is the one sold most places these days, does not have D1.

Are items that are OOS for shipping automatically listed as unavailable for in-store pickup? I somehow doubt that my local Best Buy sold out of D2 battle chests overnight.

Diablo is back in stock as of 2 minutes ago (says sold out on page that lists all four battle chests, but is in stock when you go to the specific product page)

My local store had plenty and they even had the price label for 7.99 for all 4 sets. Picked up the Diablo II set (says nothing about Diablo 1 on the box), Starcraft and Warcraft III.

I searched on amazon.com and they show an old Diablo set, and a new Diablo set. The old set contained Diablo 1 as well, while the new set contained just Diablo 2 and no Diablo 1 (just opened my set to see). The Diablo set I bought came with 2 WoW guest passes.

So anyone lucky enough to find the old set at Best Buy with Diablo 1?

You don't need the discs to play the game, just the cdkeys associated with the game. You can go to battle.net and create an account, connect your account with the discs and you can download the game whenever you want and play without discs.

You can install via discs and if I remember right, you can patch the game by connecting to battle.net within the game and it will update to play without discs-- But I am not sure about that.

The first method I am sure.

I know that's true for D3, SC2 and WoW, but does this work with Warcraft, Starcraft and old school Diablo as well?

Saw the Starcraft BC back in stock, so I ordered one for shipping. Will hold on on buying WC3 since I never playing it and have no true interest in the universe/story.

The WOW one looks interesting, but I bought the BC a few years ago when it included only the first expansion. Good deal on it though.

Thanks a lot OP.

It does not work with anything older than Starcraft. So Starcraft and onwards works that way.

Oh wow. I plugged in my Starcraft's James Raynor USB and entered my CD key into the Blizzard's website and it's linked up to my account. So I'm assuming all the other battlechest games work as well, but maybe not the first Diablo.
