It seems that the rules have changed a bit when it comes to the Diablo 3 beta sweepstakes. It seems that instead of sending 2000 beta keys on December 12, they will be sending 200 keys each Monday (until December 12).
If you are already playing the Diablo 3 beta, congratulations! If not, maybe today is your lucky day. The beta invites will be sent out today, so keep your fingers crossed.

Blizzard’s Ron Pardo has been spinning the truth for the last few months. They really wanted to release in 2011 but… (fill in the blank).
It’s now official: Diablo 3 is postponed for early 2012:
HELL FREEZES OVER — DIABLO® III TO SHIP IN EARLY 2012
Despite a sterling record of always hitting its release targets, Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that the expected launch window for Diablo® III, the next title in the company’s critically acclaimed series of action role-playing games, will be moving into early 2012.
That’s the BAD news. Is there any good news? Well, the beta test has been extended and additional beta invites will be sent out. In addition, I expect that the open beta will last A BIT LONGER as well, Blizzard needs more playtesting as balancing the 5 classes is a lengthy process.

Gamescom attracts quite a few game journalists, so it’s the logical place for all kinds of official announcements: from DOTA2 to … Diablo 3 beta.
Diablo III’s beta will hit by September, hopefully before, Blizzard game director Jay Wilson said during a Gamescom press conference today.
When’s the game coming out? “When it’s ready.”
Not surprisingly, Jay’s consistent with Blizzard’s “when it’s ready” party line. So it remains to be seen if they are going to hit the 2011 release date.

Diablo 3 beta is probably just a few weeks away.
Blizzard has already finalized the box art for Diablo 3 beta, so that you can select it in your Battle.net account as part of the beta selection process.
Btw, if you still haven’t signed up for the beta, go to your Battle.net account now.
In addition to the Diablo 3 box art, Blizzard’s PR machine has roared to life, announcing a press tour starting August 1.

“We really, really hope so. That’s our goal,” Pardo said. “Our goal is to get there. But you know, at the end of the day, we are going to get it right. That’s more important. We’re going to promise, we’re going to get it out there when the game is awesome. And, we’re crossing our fingers, maybe it will be this year.”
Now, there... and forget about Joystiq and their drivel.
