People don't realize, that's the game- win a Beta Key. Playing Beta is endgame.

OP's logic is bad here.

Announcement will come 6-8 weeks before release (if consistent with previous releases, have to burn discs, takes a while).

Beta will run until a couple weeks before release (if consistent with previous releases)

Therefor, beta could run for 6 weeks after the announcement.

This is good logic! This is why end of February is a likely launch date! Excited!

I didn't think this sounded right as I remember D2 being released shortly after announced but I went back and checked Cataclysm and it was 8 weeks from announced release date to release. That's really depressing information. Every week that goes by without an announcement that means there's at least 8 more weeks until the game is released.

Since there was no announcement this week 2/14 would be the earliest for release and if there is no announcement next week then it's 2/21 etc.

Might as well buy SWTOR if D3 is at least 2 months out.

What would you prefer, a press release in January saying the release date will be the end of march, or a press release by December 29th saying the release date will be December 2nd 2012?

Neither, I'd prefer if they'd already built up their inventory and announced a release date for 2 weeks from now with a patch to be installed as soon as you get the game.
