    How much does Diablo 3 cost?

    Hey, how's it going?

    Bottom line (you can ignore the rest of this post): How much does Diablo 3 cost?

    Let me start by saying I am not a huge gamer. My newest console is a Super NES, and the only games I've payed for in the last ten years are Diablo 2, Diablo 2: Lord of Destruction, and Counter-Strike: Source. That said, I really like the Diablo series and have spent countless hours playing Diablo 2 and its expansion.

    I do not know the price of video games, and have been prepared to pay about $70 for Diablo 3. I came up with that number by thinking about the $60 games I bought back in the 1990's, such as Super Mario World and Mortal Kombat. However, I was looking through PC World magazine, and the latest issue has a list of the top 20 PC games out right now, and most of the prices ranged from $20 to $40.

    Will Diablo 3 fall in that price range? It would be awesome if it did, but that's about half the price I have been expecting.

    Thanks!

    Probably the same price as Starcraft 2, which was $59.99 in the US I believe.

    Ya you may wanna try torchlight 2 or path of exile if cost is an issue, the game isnt docking its price for the real money auction house or any other fees.

    I think it will be less than 100 USD, not sure about the CE though.

    70 USD should be more than enough for a normal edition.

    Probly 59.99$ US

    As for the CE, I'm guessing it to be 99.99$ just like Batman's CE, but it could be anywhere from 80$ (unlikely) to 150$ (like Skyrim's CE, but unlikely also).

    Thank you very much for the replies.

    $60 - the same price as Starcraft 2, apparently - makes sense.

    £29.99 is only $41.77 in US Dollars! On the US Amazon site, the game goes for US$59.99, which is a whole lot more.

    There's no way I can pre-order the game at the cheaper (Euros) price, right?

    When I tried to check out on the UK Amazon site, I received the message, " This item cannot be shipped to the address you selected. (Learn more.) You may either change the shipping address or remove the item by clicking Delete."
