Default Blizzard: No mods for Diablo III

For those who are looking forward to Diablo III you might want to take a look. It seems that Blizzard has already laid down the law regarding mods for the game. Kotaku's article says that Blizzard cites "a variety of gameplay and security reasons" for not allowing them and that they are prohibited in the terms of use.

Surprised? You shouldn't be.

Diablo III Mods Are Forbidden, Banned, Not Allowed

Diablo III you mean? :P

I'm disappointed but not surprised by this. Looks like I'm abandoning Blizzard-Activision altogether. They're obviously doing this to prevent mods from reducing their revenue, and stifling the community as a result.

No, doesn't surprise me at all. Sorta like how gay they have Starcraft 2. I hate how it's all about the money with games these days.

No comment, I will just say, they haven't had a cent of mine since wc3 tft, the LAST truely good game they have made. Bnet 2.0 has already been cracked for the modding community anyways.

How does this help them get revenue?

Idc anyway. I almost never play mods. I play the game I wanted enough to pay for.

If there's no mods then there's no alternative to any official DLC, items etc.

I loved the original Diablo I hated the save game system in Diablo II so I played through it once and now I have no idea where the game discs are, not that I want them back. I'll play Diablo III but I expect to be amazingly disappointed.

I loved the original Diablo as well ^_^ Probably cos it's one of the first games I 'finished'. And btw, I have somehow managed to lose two copies of Diablo II+LoD. The third copy I just made ISOs of.

That raises the question of, why are you gonna play it? Though it's just to confirm your fears and curiosity?
