    The best person/company to compete with is yourself.

    Diablo3 being an MMO would only help blizzard absorb more of the MMO market share.

    True, but at the same time would also limit their end customer base as many of the die hard Diablo fans wouldn't want that at all. Diablo was never an MMO and IMO, should stay that way...

    No it isn't. Example: Diablo MMO comes out, some players from WOW go over and some new customers appear, but now Blizzard is forced to spend money and resources on mentaining and updating two games with minimal if any gain, when they could be making the same amount of money if they only had one MMO. Especially considering the similar nature of both of these games (medival fantasy), it doesn't make sense, because both would attract exact same audience. That's exactly why EA canceled Ultima Worlds Online.

    IF it is Diablo 3, watch it end up botched up since Blizzard isnt directly developing it from the way it sounds.

    I sure hope not anyway.

    It is a Diablo related announcement. It is not Diablo 3.

    Holy thread-bump batman!
    Why is this?

    Well, 1st of may :) So the riddle is solved.

    And the secret was -drumroll- Blizzard bought Diablo3.com and is going to take the site over within a few months.
    Blizzard is trying to hide the "omg they're gonna release Diablo3" with the excuse "We buy domains all the time, do not see this as we're going to release Diablo3"

    Tell me about it. Being a poor uni student does that to you. Plan is to upgrade at the middle of this year to 9900 or a HD48xx. Obviously if I have the money as it is going to be a totally new rig.

    Blizz already has a Fantasy Based MMO..

    The next one will most likely be based on Starcraft.
