Diablo III Auction House Will be Completely Gone on June 24

Retrieve the earnings of your completed transactions before they're gone forever!

by

Auction house users on Diablo III don't have much longer to retrieve gold and real-money resulting from their transactions. The in-game auction house will be gone for good tomorrow, Blizzard has reminded players.

While Blizzard had shut down auction house functionality in March this year, players were still able to retrieve unclaimed items or gold from the "Completed" tab in-game. That is, until the auction house window is removed from game for good.

Players who wish to pick up their unclaimed earnings can do so in-game by clicking on the standard gavel icon and selecting one of the two auction houses, gold or real-money, followed by accessing the Completed tab. Up to 50 items can be displayed at once in the Completed tab, with remaining items stored in the "backlog". Backlog items will resurface as space is made by the player.

Blizzard recently announced at the Sony E3 press conference new enemies from The Last of Us in a PS4- and PS3-exclusive Diablo III dungeon. Including the base game and the Reaper of Souls expansion, Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition will launch on August 19 for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.

Do you noticed that everyone who likes Diablo 3 already dislikes Diablo 2? That tells a lot about this game.

REally wish they would get rid of the always online for pc, the lag, latency, and drops (non- user isp problems) really bring the game down. Also 2-4 friends cannot play through story mode via LAN but instead each have to log online thousands of miles away even though you are five feet from each other in one room. An hour log session with someone getting lagged out is rarer then any purple gear. 


The console versions are much better - but I do like the look of pc - better. A really good game- that they did everything they (blizzard) could to not let you play it.

Do you notice all of the console players saying D3 is a great game and how they are having lots of fun with it. Then some of the PC players saying the game is a "MASSIVE FAILURE".

Console players don't follow their suggestions when they say D3 is nothing compared to the 18 year old Diablo 1 and 14 years old Diablo 2. You will be BITTERLY disappoint if you expect anything close to D3 if you play those games now.

IMHO, too little too late. Its sad because this was the first diablo game I ever played and i really wanted to get into the IP but this was the worst $60 i ever spent on a game. Got it at launch and played for a month then never again. They lost all my interest very early on and I just don't have the will to go back. Such a shame too because the game did look amazing and the art was fantastic.

Guys, buy Van Helsing 2 instead.  Better game and pretty cheap.

It ruined the game.  Pulling the plug 2 years late isn't going to undo that kind of long term damage.

Im playing the shlt out of the ps3 version these days with a friend and I just cant wait for the console release of RoS... august 19th is way too far...I also hope this isnt the only and last of the expansions for the game. There HAS to be a 2nd one that adds 2 more classes and brings back the druids to the game. Volcano/Tornado spells and Shapeshifts would work really well with how the game is designed with the use of runes etc.

I ran through Diablo 3 on the 360 with a monk and was surprised at how fun it was...Blizzard also makes stunning CG cut-scenes.

Step in the right direction.

Now offer ala carte expansion instead of forcing console players to buy the whole game again.

The auction house is gone, but the always online BS is still here. I guess singleplayer lag is a feature they don't want to remove. Not that it really matters because the rest of the game is boring as hell because there's no character customization. Blizz may say that skill trees are meaningless because people would always pick the optimized build, but I liked to make wacky or challenging builds.

I should have done this a longggggggg time ago


time to get a cracked copy and play this game offline as it should have been ...but sadly its not even good enough to waste my effort

Diablo 3 was, and is a massive failure. You can point to sales figures all you want and claim the opposite, but this is blizzard ffs. You are gonna see big sales figures, if they released a game called Big Panda GangBang. Sure, the expansion did pull the game out of the gutter and in the right direction. And I did start playing D3 again, for a month....

But this is still FAR from the MASSIVE experience I had with Diablo 2. Can't just point the finger at the auction house, but the news that the auction house now finally dies is just another excuse for something that shoultn't have been there to be begin with.

@galafasanta Path of Exile is like a Diablo 2 updated, massive success, and free. The problem with D3 is that was designed for consoles so in PC it is less than we expected from such title.

@MW2ismygame  I felt the same way. But I have to admit, with the 2.0+ patches and the expansion, the game is as fun as Diablo 2. So I'd recommend giving it another shot, even without the expansion. It's too bad I had to buy a game and sit on it for 2 years, but I'm glad now I'm getting my money's worth.

@MW2ismygame It's way better now. Since you already own it you might as well give it a shot.

@MW2ismygame Except the console version is fun,addictive,loaded with content,plays smooth,has a great local co-op,tons of replayability and secret stuff  to find and is the only version that shouldve seen the day. PC version of D3 was written SCAM all over it.

@gameroutlawzz Well, traditionally there's usually only one expansion for diablo. I wouldn't be surprised if we see a Diablo 4 really soon, like next year. Activision is going to want to milk the franchise dry.

@AzureBonds76 Oh man some of those cut scenes were fantastic! I don't know why they don't make more CGI cut-scenes in games. I know they are expensive but they don't have to be 40 minutes long like in Metal Gear Solid or some crap but I really miss them.

@svaubel But RoS on PC was priced at $40 on release which is th eprice you pay for the bundle on console once its released. Which is a good thing for my friend of mine who doesnt own the original but has been in love with the game in thepast weeks when he comes over. We just hit lvl 60 yesterday and are desperately waiting for RoS on consoles.  Until then we'll reach inferno and grind abit of gear.

@catsimboy Couldn't agree more that the lack of customization completely ruined this game. I played countless hours of D2 due to the numerous ways you could develop each character. Blizzard decided for D3 however that the days of planning and developing unique builds was over. The result, a boring experience where the only diversity you are permitted is through items you pick up. Sadly this game is nothing but an insult to intelligent gamers.

@vadagar1  it's a bigger waste of your effort since there isn't a cracked version as of yet they haven't managed to crack the game

@vadagar1  so that would mean you missed the 2.0 patch?

@Xanitra I had great memories with D2 but it was flawed. I think D3 in its current state is comparable to LOD.

@Xanitra daiblo 1 and 2 are VASTLY superior games to this... thing... they call D3

Stebsis

@Xanitra Just because you and some others didn't like it doesn't make it massive failure. And the people with problems with the anything are always the vocal majority so it seems like everybody has the same problems but that's just not the case most of the time. I bought the game when RoS was released and really enjoy it, it's a great game imo.

@gameroutlawzz I agree with this comment. Get D3 for console. Was such a better experience without the dumbass AH imo. I'm going to go ahead and get for PS4, to play the expansion. I only needed 3 more trophies for platinum anyway. Really was a lot of fun and held my interest on console, until GTA V came out. That was the only reason I quit, and would still play it right now, if I didn't sell it.

@normanislost yah I just lost all interest in the game after getting shafted... I just don't have the willpower to try it again

@vadagar1 @Xanitra Runewords ruined D2, the fact that you lose all of your uniques when moving form Normal to Nightmare and Nightmare to Hell in Diablo 1 and also MANA SHIELD  RUINED Diablo 1 so youre totally wrong.   D2 is a joke, all classes are seeking for the same lame ass gear and runewords, Hammerdin is the only viable class if you want to be able to do more than baal runs so yeah,no.  D2 was great when LOD first came out in 2002 (or 2003).

@Stebsis @Xanitra  While I may also believe D3 was not a massive failure, D3 to me just does not have that extra punch that D2 had, D2 was the best Diablo game to me. However, Blizzard is pretty good at making them cutscenes and I just love them.

@Stebsis @Xanitra ur taste in games is irrelevant cause it clearly lacks in may areas, we are veteran gamers and our games are like wine ... we don't just drink any sewer filtered crap and call it good


we played D1 and 2 and many other H&S games and we know what we are talking about 


D3 is a horrible game cause it gets compared to the vastly superior D1 and 2 sure they fix this and that every now and then but too little too late the damage is done and I will never buy another Blizzard game ever again

@Stebsis @Xanitra no skill tree and the auction house ruined it for me got to level 60 got alot of good gear and the game just got boring, path of exile is by far better and its free.

@gameroutlawzz Agreed. Runewords were the most unbalanced thing ever. Hammerdins were fun though.

@lonewolf1044 @Stebsis @Xanitra 

Yeah, that's been my Friends' most common complaint. It's an OK Diablo-clone (the console version, aside from the abysmal hit-detection even in off-line mode)...but it's not a Diablo game, title/IP Owners be damned (and very true since Blizzard North, who actually made D1 and D2, now works for Runic Games and had nothing to do with D3).

@vadagar1 @Stebsis @Xanitra " And I did start playing D3 again, for a month...." Thanks for going away!

"I will never buy another Blizard game every again" That's good to hear, I really hope you don't purchase Diablo 4 too.

I would appreciate if you guys would just move on and leave the game behind, and not be the very first people to comment on every D3 article on here.

@vadagar1 A "veteran gamer" plays what he liked. He does not care about reviews, number, or any standar of "what is good or not" he plays what he enjoys because somebody becomes a gamer seeking to ahve fun, not to develop a misguided sense of pride like this one you are trying to show like if it was something good..
A "veteran gamer" is a meutre person that know best than following this modern trend of not respecting other people's tastes, nor does an adult. I think you are neither o them.
Now do yourself a favor and cut the crap. You deceive nobody with it,

@vadagar1 @Stebsis @Xanitra Wow. Just wow. It boggles my mind how condescending some people can be. Veteran gamers? Well ok... does being veteran gamer mean people can't enjoy games on their own? They can't have their own opinion what they find fun? I've played D1 and 2, and D2 is still the best PC game I've played to date, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying other games
