I'm either going to DD or just get the disk from the store today. But I need to know if i get a hard copy once I install can I just launch from desktop or do I need the disk in to play?

What is the best way to go? DD or hard copy?

Nah you just need your battle.net account to be licensed to play.

Trying to download the game right now is a nightmare. It would be well worth the drive (well, that depends) to have a physical copy. If you were asking this question last week, I'd say digital though.

So let me ask you this then. Once I get if DD if I decide to go that route can I re download again later if needed like if my PC goes bad or something and I get a new PC does Blizzard remember I puchased it and let me re download it or whatever?

yeah, you have a battle.net account, as long as you remember the login/password you have access to any games tied to the account

You can download the game client from your battlenet account. You can play on any computer that can run the game, but only log on to one at a time.

Cool maybe I'll just play some Max Payne 3 for a bit and let the servers calm down a bit then DD it.

So I have two computers that can run the game. If I go out and buy it I won't be able to play co-op with my friend or family member unless I buy two copies?

You can install the game using the same CD - on as many machines as you want.

However - to play the game - you need to have a Battle.net account and activate Diablo 3 for it.

You can only log your Battle.net account on ONE machine at a time.

============================

This means you need to buy another copy of Diablo 3:
- to get another activation cd-key
- to use it on a DIFFERENT battle.net account for activation
- to have a friend log using that so the both of you can play the game at the same time
