Blizzard needs to hire new marketing people. Why would they pay Amazon and have Diablo 3 sponsor their PC game sale without a firm D3 release date?

How many video game commercials on TV do you see of games that are coming out in 2012? No one in their right mind would spend cash on a promotion like that and not have people able to buy their product.

This stunt will not generate many preorders without a firm release date. Heck they could've chosen Titan to sponsor it and got the same response.

Then they wasted money sponsoring a game sale. Probably paying millions for it.

Doubtful.

You do know that the retailers make money selling Blizzard's games, right? The more they sell the more they make.

Anyone familiar with Blizzard can be assured this isn't true. Announcements are usually made here on the forums first

True but believing in the worst that could happen will soften the blow if it actually does happen.
