    Ya know always on DRM is fine as long as people that will connect, CAN connect. If they sell a game and then say you can't play it even if you hold up your end of the deal (legit copy with Internet) they could be in trouble law wise. Unless there is something in the ELUA about no guarantee of service. If so then we are at their mercy I suspect.

    THis is BS that i see repeated often.

    You cannot know EULA before purchase. Any and all requirements must be stated on the outside of the box, since most retailers will not refund on opened media. This has been fought in court, and won. Either they provide what's on the box, or it constitutes fraud. Many retailers will now give refunds on opened media.

    The whole EULA thing should be challenged in court soon as well. Forcing you to agree to such things ,after purchase, but before you can use the software liscence you purchased, in essence, is not a valid method of signing/enforcing a contract. It very simply is placing the user under duress, and as such, any EULA agreement has no way that it will be upheld in court.


    It's just a matter of throwing it before the courts, and paying the fees to have it be so. No big deal...:laugh:

    While I agree about the EULA as the law stands NOW we are screwed. Most companies will provide you with a EULA before purchase if requested. So when it does go to court its gonna be a HARD sell its not an agreement.

    Impossible in the retail space(and this is how EULA's will not stand up to the test in court). But I get where you are coming from.

    Law says NOTHING now lulz. IT says that aANY contract signed under duress is invalid. There is no cut and dry "guilty" in law. Muderers can get not-guilty, and innocent people can get convicted. ;)

    You just need to prove that the situation put you under duress(no other options to be had). The way EULA's are used, they are nothing BUT duress.

    Would anyone normal agree to pay for something they could not use? I mean sure, could go either way, but a good lawyer(ie, big $$$) should have no issues here.

    EDIT: The kicker here with Diablo III is the real-world money auction house. If you buy the game to access that part of the game, and are "forced" to "sign" a EULA in order to get access to that money potential, duress can be claimed.

    Proving duress in clicking "agree" or "decline" in the comfort of your living room to play a video game is gonna be a hard sell IMO.

    See edit. lulz. So now, time not able to access the service can constitute a potential loss in revenue.

    I mean, it's a stretch, don't get me wrong...but definitely possible to push through. TEH "groudnwork" for such is there, as is the legal precedence...it's just a matter of acting on it.

    Laws are open to interpretation by the judge. Even if it WASN'T a stretch, it's still possible that it could go either way.

    I eman really, we are talking about minor money here, so the chances of even getting the case heard is not very likely, unless pushed as civil-action.


    Honestly, to me, this launch has been pretty good. There have been some issues, sure, but not THAT many.

    This game becomes much more enjoyable after the beta part is over.

    D3 has better resource management mechanics, but SC2 had better RPG elements.
    1Kurgan1 and techguy31 say thanks.

    I am enjoying the demon hunter. Level 11, I was able to kill the skeleton king before he reached me.
