Blizzard has announced that the Diablo III starter edition is now available and free;
Seems like a reasonable restriction to get a taste of the full game but from memory it's the first time Blizzard has introduced a "free" sort of game without time limitation and instead relying on the games enjoyment to make you become a purchaser.
Hmm, might check this out. Free = good.
Starcraft 2 and WoW are the same too
Yeah, WoW went "free" till level 20 a few months back, theres a lot of restrictions on it though to stop gold farmers making easy free accounts to spam people with. Like I think you can only send tells to people who are your friends, and I don't think you can use the AH or send stuff through the mail.
wait, so the starter edition i played months ago, wasn't free?
Remember when we had demos? Those were the days.
