Thank you so much! I'm downloading now, I'm very curious to see if I can run this on my MacBook Pro...maybe not.

Then I will have to create a Battle.net account, right?

Got in once, now it keeps getting timed out.

And what interests me is in the top right corner it says:

"Upgrade now! Click your way to 60! Challenging Bosses! Nightmare, Hell & Inferno Mode!"

And then an "Upgrade" button.

I'm guessing that's where you can pre-order the game.

Wasn't really interested in beta but I'll give it a try to see how it runs on my computer

I read on a random forum that this is not a beta, but the starter edition. What the hell is starter edition? A demo?

I'm in a game and playing (US). I actually have things to do today at work, so I'm done for the day until I get back. Can I stay logged in or will the game kick me out after a period of inactivity?

Could be the same way WoW is, you can play a limited version of the game and upgrade if you wish to play the full thing.

Starter Edition is a demo, yeah.

Also, this is everything I ever wanted out of a Diablo 3.

I can quickly see this always online "feature" getting annoying, having been disconnected already mid fight.

Remoted in to my home PC and started the Install. Hopefully there isn't a time frame of opportunity here, man, Trials Evo AND Diablo 3 on the same day?! Amazing.

Edit: Starter Edition, eh? Sounds good to me! Anything to see how my PC handles this before purchasing.

I made it up to (Nostalgic spoilers for the first part of the game. You've been warned.) the Cathedral from the original Diablo before it kicked me off. Barbarian is amazingly fun.

It could be nothing, though.

I tried to login with a friend's account that actually has the beta and I also got an error message.

Did they have the demo before Starcraft II launched or was it after?

It came after. A few months I think? I remember trying it to see if I actually cared for Starcraft, but I still don't.
