you do have an internet connection and you do need a connection to play diablo, so I don't understand why you don't "have access to steam/amazon". makes no sense at all.

and I guess theres more than one game shop where you live and it's impossible that every shop has the same price for the game.

@nole

You wanna know why the Diablo Battlechest is still 25 bucks ? Because even 12 years after it's release D2 is STILL one of the best GAMES money can possibly buy. It's a bold claim but easily backed up by the number of ppl still playing (and buying!) D2 to this very day.

Same with Starcraft and (I hate myself for saying this) Counterstrike for example.

Over here you can walk into pretty much every supermarket/grocery store and pickup a copy of D2+LOD for like €9.99 - 14.99. 12 years after it's release .....

Now please explain what's so absurd about charging 25 bucks for one of the best games of all times (and one of the most successfull ones) bundled with D1 and LOD and a bunch of extra stuff. To me that's not absurd at all. To me that's a steal (with some nostalgic value, I admit) and I am far from beeing a Blizzard fanboy (ever wonder why there are only fanboys and no fangirls ? ^^).
That's a matter of opinion. I wouldn't place it on a list of best games. The campaign can be completed in a day, but there's enough pointless *OMG LOOT!!1!* to last several lifetimes.

No, it isn't and it doesn't matter where YOU would put it :)

Quite frankly, the press and NPD group strongly disagree with your assesment.

Look at #7

Copies of Diablo: Battle Chest continue to be sold in retail stores, appearing on the NPD Group's top 10 PC games sales list as recently as 2010.[44] Even more remarkably, the Diablo: Battle Chest was the 19th best selling PC game of 2008[45] – a full seven years after the game's initial release – and 11 million users still play Diablo II and StarCraft over Battle.net.[46]
And that's just from a quick search on the subject without actually looking at hard financial data provided by ActiBlizz.

Now, please explain how charging 25 bucks for such a successfull product is absurd.

The only product I am aware off right now that can match this kind of success is StarCraft (Surpriiiiiiise!).

Quite frankly, I don't care what they think either. Aggregate opinion is still opinion.

2008 is just one year, the overall sales tells a slightly different story, and as far as I can tell, the first link is not sales-based, but opinion.

The Sims (16 million shipped)[1]
The Sims 2 (13 million)[2]
The Sims 2: Pets [expansion pack] (5.6 million)[3]
The Sims 2: Seasons [expansion pack] (1 million)[3]
World of Warcraft
World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade [expansion pack] (at least 4.7 million; required to own Wrath of the Lich King)
World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King [expansion pack] (at least 4.7 million; required to own Cataclysm)
World of Warcraft: Cataclysm [expansion pack] (4.7 million)[4]
Half-Life 2 (12 million; may include sales on other platforms)[5]
StarCraft (11 million)[6]
Battlefield 2 (11 million)[7]
The Sims 3 (10 million)[8]
Half-Life (9.3 million,[9][10] may include PS2 version)
Half-Life: Opposing Force [expansion pack] (1.1 million)[9][10]
Guild Wars (6.5 million in North America, Europe, and Asia; includes Factions, Nightfall, and Eye of the North)[11]
Myst (6 million)[12]
Minecraft (5.8 million, at least 4.0 million still in beta testing, and 1 million in alpha testing)[13]
SimCity 3000 (5 million; includes Sim City 3000 Unlimited edition)[14]
Riven (4.5 million)[15]
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty (nearly 4.5 Million)[16]
Battlefield 1942 (4.39 million BF1942 2.47 million, BF1942:RTR 0.64 million, BF1942:SW 0.49 million, BF Deluxe 0.37 million, BF Anthology 0.42 million)[17]
Counter-Strike (4.2 million,[9][10])
Cossacks: European Wars (4 million)[18]
Diablo II (4 million)[19]
Diablo II: Lord of Destruction [expansion pack] (1 million;[19] 2 million shipped)[19]
According to these sales stats, The Sims is the greatest game of all time. Do you agree? Opinion.

Anyway, it's also just my opinion that the price for a game over a decade old is too high, but I'm poorish, so most prices are too high for me.

OKAY......its just a damn game no matter how you look at it or what your opinion of it is. Like it or don't like it, who cares? I'm just here to tell those who bought it you can install the game now. Not just the preinstall, but the actual install. Today its going to be some guild wars 2, and tomorrow I'll be killing some demons and diablos. high five lazer faces

My biggest problem is the pricing in the UK you can get it if you can find it or preorder for between £32 & £35 yet on blizzards website it costs £44.99,thats a lot of money for 1 game probably the dearest standard edition of a game i have seen,I will wait for a price decrease and reviews before purchase or if its cracked i wont have to.Blizzard are ripping people off and overhyping which is just a game,but the world as a whole seems to be intent on overhyping everything.

Never.
And by never I mean NEVER.
If you´d read a bit more about the game you want to pirate so hard and followed the discussions you´d know that by now.
