a lot cheaper than this

Hey you! Do you like killing stuff? Do you like it when said killed stuff drops loot? If you said yes to one or all of these, I’d imagine you are a big fan of Diablo III and its expansion, Reaper of Souls. If you’ve yet to try the action clickathon because you’ve been saving up those pennies, then today is your lucky day. Blizzard have both the core and expansion at 50% cheaper – so basically the increase for PS Plus, but in reverse!

The announcement was made over at the Diablo twitter page (via GameZone):

Sorry console fans, it’s only for PC it seems. Heading to the Battle.net store reveals that the new prices for both are €19.99. Based on the current exchange rate of R14.27 a Euro  (at time of writing), that works out to R285.25 a pop, or R570.50 in total. Decent price, but still expensive due to the exchange rate, right?

I had a look at some other options for comparison:

BT Games (PC)

Diablo III: R365
Reaper of Souls: R249
Total: R614

AWX (PC)

Diablo III: R390
Reaper of Souls: R440
Total: R830

Kalahari (PC)

Diablo III: R451
Reaper of Souls: R399
Total: R850

Takealot

Diablo III: R360
Reaper of Souls: R369
Total: R729

The cheapest for both is clearly BT Games, yet they are still a teeny tiny bit more expensive compared to the price on the Blizzard store. The choice really boils down to you – cheaper for a digital version, or a bit more to have physical copies of the titles.

As much of a PC fanboy I am, I do consider new gen console gamers lucky in this regard. They just need to buy the Ultimate Evil Edition which has everything in one neat package. If that gets discounted in future, it will be a definite bargain.

If you’re looking to buy the game for PC, I would highly recommend getting the expansion as it improves the game experience infinitely. Be sure to act soon though. There is no indication as to how long the special lasts!

I reviewed Reaper of Souls a few months ago, and I loved it. Alternately, if you are a new console owner, you can read Darryn’s review of the Ultimate Evil Edition – he loved it too.

Defence of the Ancients? More like Defence of the cabbages! Have you seen my head? I look like a Merino Sheep on pole. NO SHANGE only SHAPPIES! :D

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Torchlight 2, $5. Path of Exile, free. Diablo se moer, man. 😛

    • hairyknees

      I enjoyed Torchlight 2, no lies. I enjoy Diablo III a bit more though <3

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Do you enjoy it 10 times as much? 😉

        • Anon A Mouse

          He said a bit, thus only 50% more.

          • Alex Hicks

            I think you’ll find that 50% is defined as “slightly more”. Describing it as “a bit more” should be in the 40-45% range.

        • hairyknees

          MONEY CAN’T BUY HAPPINESS! Wait, what were we arguing about again?!?!?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            That’s just one of those things I’ll prefer to discover for myself. Someone give me lots of money… for research.

    • Admiral Chief 0

      ..still have to get to TL1

    • Hendry

      Plus Path of Exile is absolutely brilliant (apart from requiring an always online connection, but then again so does DIII so the winner is obvious).

  • Viking Of Science

    Can’t. Divinity: Original Sin… I cannot stop playing…. 15 hours in, still exploring outside the first town. bliss.

    • Mossel

      Ah man that’s awesome! I miss games that immerse you so much! Then you get idiots that sprint through it in 10 hours and you really don’t understand how or why.

      • Viking Of Science

        It’s the best $40 i’ve ever spent on a game. hands down.

    • Admiral Chief 0

      Awesome, THAT alone piques my interest!

      • Viking Of Science

        Dude, for serious, It’s So much like CRPG’s of old.

        If Wasteland 2 and Pillars of Eternity can match it in quality, I’ll be happy for a long time!

        In fact, I think i should just review it and send it to @lazygamers:disqus, it’s not like any of these “lazy” gamers are going to get to it…. 😛

        • Admiral Chief 0

          XD

    • Blazzok

      I spent the first 10hours of the game stealing everything and robbing everyone in the whole town, then selling the items back to them for better gear :3

      • Koko

        I made loads of money stealing and selling portraits. And one specific merchant…..Sold everything to him….killed him and he dropped all my and his shop items for me to resell in town.

  • WolfyZA

    I love this game, who would’ve thought that raiding caves could be so addictive.

  • Admiral Chief 0

    Geez my RoS collectors edition was cheaper than this!

    • hairyknees

      I’m adding the two together though 🙂

      • Admiral Chief 0

        I paid NADA for mine 😛 So it WILL be cheaper!

        • hairyknees

          Oh yes XD sorry, I forgot you won 😛

          • ReaperOfSquirrels

            Yes, he won, and hasn’t gotten past lvl 46!

          • hairyknees

            WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

          • ReaperOfSquirrels

            I NOE RAAAIT!!!!!!

  • UltimateNinjaPandaDudeGuy

    With the new patch this game is awesome again! I must admit I still miss the D2 skill tree, but D3 is an epic game and very polished.

    I have tried the other copies of Diablo, but nothing has ever come close to the real thing for me.

  • Kervyn Cloete

    I’ve never been accused of being a maths genius, but I’m pretty sure that R249 (BT’s price for RoS) is cheaper than R285 (Blizzard’s price for RoS).

    • hairyknees

      Tis, but I was looking at combined prices 🙂

    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      BT has it on special at the moment… Kalahari has RoS for R399, Takealot R369

      • Kervyn Cloete

        Ja, ordered it from BT yesterday. Despite me really not wanting to give them much business, cheap is cheap.

  • Sirgwardo

    Sorry if I missed something here. Just bought Diablo II and the RoS expansion as one on the PS3 for R499.00 ala CNA a few weeks ago??

    • Sirgwardo

      Jirre, meant Diablo III

    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      This is PC version only, so I don’t think you missed anything 🙂
