Blizzcon opening ceremony reveals Diablo 3 collector's edition along with new cinematic.

We've all been waiting for what feels like ages for an official Diablo III release date, and we thought Blizzcon would certainly be the day we finally find out. Unfortunately, we weren't given an official date but we were teased with a stunning new cinematic and details on the game's collector's edition.

Included in the massive collector's edition package will be:

  • Behind-the-scenes Blu-ray/DVD set
  • A collectible Diablo's skull figurine!
  • 4GB usb drive with a soulstone design
  • The Art of Diablo III artbook
  • Exclusive in-game content
  • Diablo III soundtrack
  • Diablo III for PC/Mac

No details were given on pricing for the package, but we did get to see a brand new cinematic! Check it out below:

    Oh and the cinematic was down right inspiring. Probably won't buy the game, and if I do, it won't be till the prices is reduced, probably much later, but their cinematics are amazing. Should make a full fledged movie or something.

    Honestly, compared to the vanilla and BC cinematics, the trailer for Wrath, Cata and now MoP are a little disappointing. They used to do very high end CGI. Now it's just regular game graphics from a game engine thats well over 10 years old now.

    Oops, sorry, had a brain freeze. You meant the D3 trailer. Yes, that is an excellent one. I have long wished they would put their high end CGI talents to use for a movie.

    When they announced the Warcraft movie I was hoping would be in the high end CGI style that they have used, but they decided to make it live action. That is if it's still going to be made.

    I had the same hope. When they decided to go live action for the movie I thought it was the stupidest thing in the world, however when I heard that Sam Raimi was going to direct it I felt better and i was even looking forward to it. Who knows if it will ever happen though.

    I wish they would make CGI movies! Heck, Blizzard should have it's own movie studio. Even though I don't know crap about Diablo I would buy a Diablo CGI movie just because it looks incredible.

    I can't think it will happen. For one thing it was already stalled, and with the slate of bad news for the Warcraft franchise, cancelled comics and the magazine due to low sales, weak sales for the pre Cataclysm novels and a declining subscriber base just after a new expansion comes out all go toward making a film studio very nervous.

    The fact that Blizzard is doing this 'Get D3 free if you pay for WoW for the next year' promotion, which by the way is only for existing subscribers and players who have let their accounts go inactive, tells me they fully expect WoW to have a VERY bad year.

    But who knows. Maybe things will get shaken up at Activision Blizzard soon. I'm keeping my hopes up for that to happen.

    Wow, I still have not played Diablo II. I intended to get it a while back, and then completely forgot about it. Maybe I can find it for $5 somewhere...
