The post you're quoting is referring to a Diablo 3 sponsored sale of PC Games on Amazon tomorrow.11/30/2011 02:41 PMPosted by BashiokWhy would they pay Amazon and have Diablo 3 sponsor their PC game sale without a firm D3 release date?
What is Amazon doing? I must have missed it.
Check back tomorrow for PC Games Day, sponsored by Diablo IIIhttp://www.amazon.com/Outlet/b/ref=amb_link_359053442_2?ie=UTF8&plgroup=1&node=409566&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-stage-1&pf_rd_r=0GDEK75DRFN70BBBSB88&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1337026842&pf_rd_i=468642

This has nothing to do with a retailer release date. As far as I know Amazon.com does not have a release date for D3. It is the fact that Blizzard IS PAYING MONEY to Amazon to advertise their product. A product with no release date? Does not seem effective marketing.
I am not a marketing professional and if someone wants to argue the case of why this is a good move to do without a release date go ahead.
because the release date isnt anounced yet is a pretty good one
2 months, or 6 months away, its a good time to advertise pre orders, right before xmas
Yeah, no. Nobody in their right mind pre-orders without a release date. Strike that... nobody in their right mind pre-orders. Its just another way of locking in a purchase that does nothing for the customer except remove their choices from them.

ill be buying d3, that isnt gunna change
So buy it then. Its not like they are going to run out and you need to put $60 in escrow in order to get in line an unknown period of time in advance.
so, if i know that i am going to buy it, whats the problem with pre ordering it?
Whats the problem with not? You haven't even seen what you're paying for yet, and don't know when its even going to be released. Maybe you'll kick yourself when you realize you wish you hadn't bought it 3 years ago.
i guess you didnt buy gamecube or ps3 when it was brand new (went to like 9 different places before finally finding a place that still had one, for each system)
Yeah no, I didn't. There isn't any video game that is so damn important I'm going to waste my time making up for a crappy retail supply chain.
i never said there was a problem with not pre ordering it, ur the one causing a fuss
No, I just said nobody in their right mind pre-orders. You haven't convinced me otherwise by telling me what it gets you. They aren't going to run out of a digital download.
