Well, to be fair, product availability tends to be a little different at our official events. The Fry's we've had most of our official US events at had so many Burning Crusade CE's they still had copies 2+ years after the expansion released.


Quick side query there Bashiok; Why do we not see any Blizzard events in Australia? Namely no Diablo 3 Launch? You have the playerbase here for certain..


Just fyi. Blizzard doesn't do launch of their games in other countries. Usually a sponsor company will.

Blizzard is based in the United States.

I've been to multiple events and I always see people actually downgrading. So if they are out there is still hope.

I'm aware. But they have events held in multiple countries. Take for instance the Blizzard WWI where Diablo was announced, which was held in France I believe.

maybe you should have pre ordered the copy when it was announced in october instead of expecting it to just be available 10 days before launch.... seems like a personal problem to me

According tot he employee the copies that they had pre-ordered months ago are the ONLY collector's edition copies that they will be getting


No offense, but are you stupid ? The CE was announced half a year ago. wtf are you doing trying to secure a copy this close to release. Its LIMITED, !!!! of course there are none left !!!

Frys doesn't do pre-orders at all


Again, why didnt you just pre-order it from a shop that DOES take pre-orders. Hellooooo ???

ROLF OP, your stupidity is astounding.

So El was supposed to pre-order at the Irvine GameStop months in advance before even knowing there was going to be a midnight release there? If you had even read, she's not worried about finding a CE (she can get one elsewhere); she's wondering why the recently-announced Blizzard launch party is located in a place that doesn't have CEs to spare.

Everyone, point and laugh at the OP for being naive and missing out on CE. Welcome to the real world.

I dont know about pointing and laughing. Seems a bit harsh. But still you couldnt be THAT shocked to find out CE is sold out this close to launch. Most if not all CE's have been in limited supply.

Getting signature is serious business =P

Seems like if Blizzard was smart they'd bring a truck load of CE's to the event, and whatever doesn't sell can be shipped off to other distributors later. I think the OP may have just saved the company from looking rather foolish, and to do the fans right rather than making more excuses. Seriously, that would be lame beyond belief if they didn't have enough CE's to go around for such an event.

Seems like you dont know what you are talking about. The CE is Limited. Do you even know what that word means ?
