well this is topicall! I went into my local EB today and I saw a copy of the diablo battlechest. Ooh that would be a good game for my Eee PC, I thought. I pick it up and look at the price tag- $40. Forty fucking dollars!!! Has it always been that expensive or has EB jacked up the price since the E3 video was released?
I was shopping at an EB recently and heard someone asking the employees for a copy of Diablo II. They advised the customer that since Diablo III was announced, they haven't been able to keep their copies of Diablo II/Battlechest in stock for any length of time. Doesn't sound like the price will be dropping anytime soon.
Amazing that so many PC games drop in price after 8 weeks while Diablo II is still going strong after 8 years.
