A consumer advocacy group in Germany is threatening to sue Blizzard over the always-online DRM in Diablo III. Their terms state simply that Blizzard must change Diablo III’s packaging to reflect the fact that it contains said DRM, as they feel it is falsely advertised in its current state.
The group has demanded that this ultimatum be satisfied by July 27th, otherwise they will resort to taking legal action. The German version of PC Gamer has reported that the Federation of Consumer Organizations is the group responsible for this action being taken against Blizzard. This is not the first time that this group has taken a jab at Blizzard, they were initially concerned due to Diablo III’s slow launch, and the infamous ‘Error 37′ which accompanied. They now feel that the false advertising is a more pressing issue to worry about.
