Diablo® III

No release date?

Posts: 499
Jay Wilson said a release date is coming in the near future. Force predicted it will come at CeBIT because Bliz will be showcasing D3 there.

If it turns out to be a bust, NO FLIPPING TABLES!!!!

I MEAN IT! I'm still picking up tables from that whole bust buy incident!!

I love Force. But, he predicted the release date would be announced at Blizzcon, too. Then again, we actually have a 3 Q2 confirmation from Blizzard this time, we didn't have any confirmation about a window last time, just a "goal."

Transparency is a much appreciated quality, imo the d3 community has waited long enough for an actual game. I hope JW's latest comments are far more credible than "soon" has been.

I love how people don't think that "in the near future" might mean w/in a month, that is the near future, if you think that the near future is tomorrow then your just being an impatient child.

I respectfully disagree w/ u.
You're getting icecream in the "near future". By your definition a patient child would'nt be tapping his foot yet after 1 month?
Truth is there is no context or scale to base expectations. After being told it was "sooner than you think" several months ago, fans have every right decide what "near future"means w/ out being told they're impatient children.

I find a common insult on these forums is to call people children. Seems odd to me as your average gamer is about 30 these days. Furthermore, only the kids with parents into D2 are gonna be playing this. Ya know the ole 17+ rating and all. In regards to the post itself, I'm hoping CeBIT myself as well.

The beauty of words and phrases like "soon" and " in the near future" is that they don't imply a definite period of time. They essentially mean the same thing and can both mean, in the next minute, day, week, month or maybe even years, depending upon the context.

If you say that you will eat your lunch "soon", then of course that implies you'll eat it within minutes or hours. You wouldn't say that you plan on eating your lunch "in the near future" as in this context, it insinuates an unnaturally greater length of time; much longer than "soon" does.

In relation to the release date, there is no normal or natural time for the game to be released as there is a normal time to eat your lunch, so both phrases in this context mean the same thing. They knew that "soon" had become tired and cliche from overuse so they said something different instead. In the near future isn't necessarily sooner than soon, if anything, it's farther off than soon, when you compare the phrase to how you'd use it in other contexts.

yeah but since they used different wording then "soon" I would like to think it is because it is sooner then soon. Also because Jay said "you can SERIOUSLY expect a release date within the near future'' The word seriously sticks out to me...

In the near future is an implication of just that & as I stated "w/in a month" is the near future, the way that you were interperting what I was saying means that "w/in a month" means exactly a month that is very bkack & white thinking. & People are being impatient children because they are taking thins out of context very often just as you were just then, so don't try & defend your actions like that.
