Do you think D3 for PS3/PS4 will have it?

Nah, i don't think so.

Always online DRM official reason was to prevent botting and duping, real reason being piracy and both won't exist with the PS4.

By piracy i mean, PC kind of piracy, where literally every single game can be gotten for free. Thats like 99% of possible piracy on PC.

Whats the % of piracy for PS3? if it's more than 1% i will be surprised.

I don't know exactly but i would be surprised if it was less then 1%, it's probably around 10% at least

I don't see why anyone would support a pay-to-win game.

OK, since you disagree, explain to me how D3 is not pay-to-win.

Because they nerfed the game difficulty so much that you can gear up a character that can destroy the game for 1 million gold?

Why speak if you have no idea what you talking about?

Edit: 1 million gold is very very low gold, it can be gotten easily while playing the game.

OH. So what you're telling me is that they ruined the game, and that makes it not even worth paying to win. That's great. I'd like to thank you for demonstrating how piss-poor the game is on my behalf.
