I am guessing that if anyone on the BG team goes it will be "Young Master Bradley".  After all he is a loot whore, and I say that with the deepest amount of respect.   As a side note MTV didn't break this bit of news.  This news was broke last week, via a Chinese Diablo fansite.

My brain omitted the word "Details" from the thread title... hopes dashed!

Man I cannot wait to play this.  I'm back in D2 at the moment and it is still amazing after all these year.  August 1st cannot come soon enough.

I read this yesterday at Tom's Hardware.

So hyped. I'm still really hoping it is released this year. That, along with Skyrim and Witcher 2 will most definitely make this the best year for RPGs in my memory.

Edit: Made link.

Well I'm excited. The beta can not come soon enough. I just hope I get in when it does come out.

And a crafting video that I hadn't seen, looks awesome:

Beta should be very close to August 1. This is moving faster than most thought. Maybe a pc release this year after all.

I wonder why the Monk's mana pool was empty in that whole crafting video. They haven't announced anything other than mana as a resource for them have they?

I really hope the beta starts this month.

So I tried to do the beta registration thing at battlenet and I always got an error message when I did the system check thing telling me that there was a problem sending my information to battlenet. Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone know a solution?

Ugh, great I remember having to tweak something like that the first time I played Diablo 2 years ago and never understood what I was doing. I don't play PC games very often (actually I'm trying to get the beta registration thing to work on my Mac book) so I'm probably going to have a hard time figuring out how to change the firewall settings.

I can't even find this beta thing? What website is it on? It says go to the Diablo page after logging in to battle.net, but I just get a page saying there is no Diablo 3 website yet... 
 
EDIT: Don't worry, I found it in "Account."

@Chavtheworld@Nottle: Hey, er, where's the beta thingy? I can't seem to find it myself.
#24 Posted by Bollard (5394 posts) -
@iDarktread: Log in to Battle.net, go onto "Account" at the top of the screen and on the right is a Beta Registration thingy. You download the client and it uploads the spec of your PC, and if they need your specs they invite you to the beta.

@Chavtheworld: Okay, cool. I ticked the little Diablo III box. 
 
Blizzard, if you're reading this... : PLEASE.
