    As far as the auction house... you know that without it they have to fix the loot drop rates right? They've had to even with the auction house on PC due to the complaints of it making the auction house less optional. 

     

    Yet millions of people have played, and continue to play, the game before major changes in the loot drops. The auction house has always been completely optional.

    considerably less than played and STAYED with diablo 1 and 2

    Look at above post showing off about 1 million logins per day, 1 year in.  Thats nothing compared to D2, i'm betting D2 had  at least double that around 5 years after release.

    Do you have any actual raw data to back this up, or are you just (unsurprisingly) pulling numbers out of your ass? Because I most certainly can do that as well.

    And no, simply saying, "I'm betting that",  doesn't qualify the statment or figures succeeding it as valid data, sorry.

    D2 was lucky to manage 200k logins per day six months after launch. D2 hadn't sold much more than two million copies total after a year. That's when the LOD expansion was released and things got better for a while. D2 was never more popular than D3. How could it be? Gaming wasn't that popular overall. Starcraft was the real cash cow prior to WoW. Warcraft III also did much better than D2. 

     

    D3 has sold  8 million plus?  Try 13 million plus.

    Multiplayer. People used to log in to do it in D2. It actually had PvP.

    Diablo 2 wasn't that great when it first came out. It wasn't until the expansion was close to release and ladder was added.

    Console better version of pc? The only difference is gamepad,dodge,offline and no auction house.

    People care so much about offline mode. Have fun playing by yourself.

    As much as I hate auction house, you don't have to use it.

    lol, even blizzard has admitted they messed up and that players weren't happy. Sorry, everyone knows how this played out and even Blizzard has confirmed the discontent. Yell into the wind if you like, it won't change what is.

    I dont think many would argue the AH was a failed experiment, but that still doesnt mean the game is not hugly popular and still played by millions of players...

  • JacxolopeJacxolope Jackson, MIPosts: 924Member

    -Hmmmmmmm....

    I knew D3 was going to suck. I knew the AH was insane. I knew I was never going to be a D3 player (although I LOVED 1 and 2)-

    I tried D3, hated it and moved on...

    On the PS3 though? This would be a purchase I would make. This game always seemed to really be a console game. I can see myself vegging out and playing a few hours a week on my Ps3 though.

    Right, I suppose you are going by Xfire stats right? Pathetic. The game crashed and burned. We all know that the wow kids and blizzard punks are the biggest factor in it's sales. (Sorry mods, I could have been more constructive in my response). Compare to D2, it is garbage. If you do not like people's opinions, I suggest you don't read them. Unless you like to receive replies like mine? ;) (Yeah, yeah, I know, I over-did it).

    failed compared to D2 then

    Sold twice as many copies in it's first two weeks than D2 ever sold. More concurrent logins now than D2 ever had by a wide margin. If that's failure I can't imagine what the standard for success would be.

    Like someone already said, it has not even kept HALF of the people who bought it, that to me, is pretty sad. D2 is still strong as hell even to this day. And like the person already said, I'm betting in it's prime, it kicked the sh** out of D3. Heck, I'm guessing if you asked a true hard diablo fan what game they would choose, you'd be surprised at how many would choose D2. To me, that is saying plenty. :)

    Your loss. Then again, I suppose the Diablo 3 community is much better off for it. So thanks!

    Well, it is more fun that playing with strangers. Plus the PS3 version can still do multiplayer. The inclusion of offline mode alone makes this the better version for me...but sadly I don't have a PS3 yet.

    Oh look, someone else who likes to pull made-up statistics out of their ass. And on these forums, of all places! Imagine that...

    I'm thoroughly enjoying this, because the FACT that D3 was / is hugely successful just kills you inside, doesn't it?

    Ah well. Welcome to my ignored posters list buddy.

    Im actually going by Blizzard's last finantial filing....but ya, I guess they are lieing right?

    Please come back when you know how to use the internet.

    I'm sorry, but you are actually arguing with Blizzard here and I hope you realize that. Jay Wilson even said that things like the Auction house really hurt the game bad. 

    http://techland.time.com/2013/03/28/diablo-3-director-admits-auction-houses-really-hurt-game/

    Blizzard admitted to and apologiezed for not offering enough content and that the game didn't have long term sustainability. 

    http://www.gameranx.com/updates/id/7748/article/blizzard-admits-there-s-not-enough-content-in-diablo-3/

     

    Blizzard has admitted that the game didn't do right by gamers and acknowledged that many weren't happy. They've been trying to correct that. 

    So yes, by all means please listen to Blizzard... don't argue with them. 

     

    I actually give them credit for owning up to the mistakes.

    Are you really that mad that more people play D3 than (inserft your favorite MMO here), that you have to fabricate "arguments", just to win them? Is that really whats going on here? Please highlight one thing you quoted that goes against my quote of the numbers Blizz released in their last Q offerings...

    I fuckin love these forums lmao.

     

    EDIT: Im sorry, the numbers wenrt revealed in their last filing, but at the GDC in late March

    Sorry man, you keep trying to say how well the game is doing but players and Blizzard have been talking about how poorly received the game was. I'll have to go with the games lead and the massive amount of negative feedback from players and say I don't think the game has performed very well after initial sales and that retention has been pretty low. 

    In any case keep touting how well the game is doing and trying to insult those that don't agree and pass it off as some "I'm a fan of this game and Diablo 3 threatens my game of choice" type of thing. I'm sure someone somewhere will eventually give you a pat on the back and agree with you.

    Nobody is denying that the game was a dissapointment, but there is also no denying that is still very popular and played by millions....what agenda are you after? Does it really hurt that bad?

    Instead of D3 for PS3 the great Blizz really should've just gone all out and gave console players WoW.  No doubt this will sell very well though considering all the Diablo clones over the years have earned other companies revenue hand over fist.
  • ShakyMoShakyMo BradfordPosts: 7,207Member
    Wow wont fit on a console. There's not enough RAM, and probably not enough disk space either.

    It's why all these designed for porting to console mmos like dcuo, Aoc etc.. are heavily instanced.
