    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.

    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.

    Here's another link about the press conference and embargo ending Aug. 1:

    http://www.co-optimus.com/article/6305/diablo-3-beta-info-rumored-for-august-1st.html

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

    http://www.co-optimus.com/article/4554/diablo-3-s-crafting-system-revealed-in-new-video-and-screens.html

    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?

    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."

    @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.
