    God, I hope Diablo III does not disappoint like StarCraft II did.

    Pretty sure it will unfortunately. It's still gonna be fun just like SC2 is but it definitely won't meet the expectations.

    Nothing can meet the expectations. I just don't want to be disappointed

    I think you haven't read the whole thing...the press event revealed the Auction House. Yes, it will cost money BUT it is basically replacing third party "shady" sites like d2jsp for a more secure way. Because lets be honest; even without AH there was going to be item farming and selling.

    Still there is a gold-based Auction House for us who don't want to use money, as it should be.

    I'm actually pretty happy about this. Blizz is right - it totally cuts out the shady part of the deal. You're guaranteed to get an item. Not a duped item, not a scam. It really is delivering what players wanted. AND I think the real brilliance, the thing that people haven't fully thought about yet - is how casual this makes the game. I think it is a fantastic decision - it allows people who love and grew up with Diablo to be "good" and not have to grind forever. I spent hundreds of hours in college playing d2. I loved it - but with my fulltime obligations, I would never be able to be "good" at D3.

    Now, I at least have the option, even if I never use it.

    You all probably know (if you are reading this thread) that this new information on the game caused a huge outrage in a part of the community and it felt somewhat like Stacraft 2 pre-Beta all over again...
