What I find interesting about this is the phrase "ancient evils - reawakened!" - you search diablo 3 on best buys website its the first thing you see.

Can't find that quote anywhere official though but best buy seems pretty sure about it as a company why else would that also be posted on there website

its known that quite a few evils from the past 2 games are making a return. not going to spoil it for anyone, but thats probably what best buy is getting at.

Picture looks legit but lets face it. But 2 things come to mind
1) Why isn't Blizzard giving confirmation to this and;
2) If this is the real release date would the likes of Wal-Mart also not have release dates for it.?

I've looked but not seen anything yet and the pre release WoW annual pass people should get it day 1 as well. I'm thinking someone put up a poster they made at home in a best buy and took a bad picture of it to give us all hope that the end/ start is coming soon.

To Blizzard. Please confirm or deny the pre release dates for us all that have only waited 10 years for D3 so that this snow ball can melt once and for all.

Shoop, can tell by the pixels surrounding the Diablo "rectangle" that is obviously ripped off a website or something. Difference in color, intentionally low quality

making people paranoid isint my goal but shouldnt bash ring in to at least shoot down this thread wether the OPs picture is true or not ?

i mean, it is a pretty convincing trolling attempt to the untrained eyes and could stir up a pretty sizeable noobstorm over time.

idk, i wouldve expected some sort of moderator intervention by now...

Just means it's fake. They only rush in and close threads which expose leaks. Obviously this is not a leak.


yeah, i know its fake like most people here. what im saying is that the picture is convincing enough to start harmful rumors around.

look at it like the KGRB issue. wether its true or not no one knows for sure, but its getting spread around so much people are becoming more and more willing to believe it. and bash did ring it to clarify it.

thats what im expecting here

that just means best buy is stupid. or attempting to play the attention !@#$% strategy

According to a German D3 fansite, the location of the Best Buy shop, where the picture was taken, is Rochester, MN:

http://diablo3.gamona.de/2012/01/07/best-buy-mn-diablo-3-mitternachtsverkauf-am-1-februar-2012/

It seems they actually called that shop and got full confirmation for both, the midnight sales as well as February 1st, 2012 being the date (if my translation is correct).
