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.
