Those in New York City, I just called the Times Square Best Buy store over the phone and was informed the only Best Buy planning a New York City Diablo III Midnight Launch is the Union Square Best Buy located in 14th Street & Broadway. No developers coming, just pick your copy there at midnight. I'll be at the NYC midnight launch with the Diablo III Tyrael Hoodie.
The Diablo III fansite, D3Sanc is holding a live release party event. Details at the bottom of the page.
Eldorian just told me Machinima is planning a livestream straight from the Gamestop Irvine where Blizzard Entertainment developers will be signing copies of Diablo III. Below is the embed. Visit around 11:00pm PDT to watch the livestream.
"Join the Machinima crew as we exclusively reveals and cover the release event for Diablo III! Machinima Realm personalities Hundar and Joel will be interviewing developers and joining in with the fans to celebrate the release of one of the most anticipated games ever. All of this will be happening LIVE from the event!"
D3Sanc Release Party
D3Sanc is hosting a release party for Diablo 3 at 1am EST on May 15th. Roughly 2 hours before the servers go live. We will be giving talking about Diablo 3 and giving away some awesome prizes. We’ll have a couple of guests on the stream helping to answer questions from the viewers and talk about Diablo 3 in general.
