    think its only blizzard.net for now

      Well, for one thing you can also get it from EB Games, or GAME, so not only blizzard.net for now.

      •  

        my bad, i was just gonna wait till after release, and try the cd-key sites. Not sure if they will have em cause its blizzard, but if they do, it wont be till after release date.

          They will have them but most likely be EU Region, so yeah could cause some complications

  •  

    Wait a year and buy it for half the release price.

  •  

    If you play world of warcraft you get it for free with a 12 months renewal.

    www.game.com.au = $89
    www.ebgames.com.au = $88
    www.jbhifi.com.au = $79
    www.harveynorman.com.au = $78

    Can't log in to battle.net so not sure how much it costs there.

      Wow…thanks, steeevo. That's very helpful to me. Now, to continue adding to it…

      Are these Aussie stock? Interesting comment on the Dungeon Crawl site…

      "We currently expect this version of DIII to be fully compatible with US and SEA servers, as well as the US RMAH. In line with Blizzard press releases at this time, we also expect users to be able to swap between game servers at will, and swap between RMAH houses after submitted proof of user residence location.
      Blizzard has stated that SEA purchases will be connected to the US servers, and hence we do not predict any connectivity issue for DC customers
      Please note that Dungeon Crawl cannot be responsible for any server connectivity issues post-release"

        RMAH is why I dont wanna buy it, (or at least anywhere near RRP)

  •  

    Game Lane also has a Key Only version for 10 dollars less than the shipped box edition ($59.95)

    Are the battle.net versions a box of digital only copy? I had thought it was digital only because it talks about being ready to go the moment 15 May hits…

    •  

      Battle.net is digital only.

      You have a pre-release encrypted client download which will unlock when the game is released on May 15th. I believe I also read that there will be a small patch on release and then you'll have access as soon as the servers are online.

        Good point. I've amended the list above to reflect that now. Thanks!
